Outstanding Recording Capabilities
The 4K-compatible PIX-E5H offers a range of Apple ProRes codecs from ProRes Proxy to 422 HQ. These codecs are designed to preserve the detail in wide dynamic range imagery captured by today's high performance digital image sensors.
PIX-E5H can record 4K up to 30 fps, UHD up to 30 fps and 1080p or 720p up to 120 fps.
The PIX-E5H is also capable of recording H.264, a codec which offers a good balance between compression and quality to reach low data rates and small file sizes, perfect for web streaming, email, and faster file uploads. Like ProRes, H.264 may be recorded to the SpeedDrive, if chosen as the primary codec. Otherwise, end users can enable the monitor's dual codec recording capability, where ProRes is recorded to the SpeedDrive and H.264 is simultaneously recorded to an SD card. While recording 4K in ProRes, the monitor will automatically scale the 4K to 1080p for recording H.264, thereby reducing its file size even further. If a LUT is active, it will be baked into the recorded H.264 file, but will not impact ProRes recordings. This is ideal for when you want to simultaneously record a full dynamic range, log-encoded ProRes master file for the edit suite and a REC709 H.264 file suitable for normal viewing.
SpeedDrive™ Recording and File Delivery
The PIX-E5H records to the innovative, super fast SpeedDrive, a custom-designed enclosure for an industry standard mSATA drive. The SpeedDrive, which plugs directly into the PIX-E, doubles as a USB 3.0 thumb drive for very high speed offload to any computer without the need for a special cable or drive docking station.
Two SpeedDrive options are available, a 240 GB SpeedDrive and an Enclosure-Only version that allows the user to choose and easily fit any size of mSATA drive. mSATA drives are available in sizes ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB.
