Sound Devices Reveals 3.02 Update For PIX 220i And 240i

News Image
Sound Devices has announced a new version 3.02 firmware update for its PIX 220i and 240i Production Video Recorders.
The update changes file formatting from UDF to exFAT volumes for PIX 220, PIX 220i, PIX 240 and PIX 240i users.
The portable PIX 220i and PIX 240i recorders bring Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD recording to SD/HD-SDI or HDMI-equipped video cameras.
Previously, drives formatted by PIX Video Recorders were UDF volumes. While the PIX 220i and PIX 240i Video Recorders will now format drives as exFAT, users still have the ability to record and play back from UDF-formatted drives.
"exFAT is a well-supported drive format, compatible with Mac OS, Windows and Linux, and will offer expanded convenience and functionality to our end users," says Paul Isaacs, Technical Development Manager, Sound Devices. "As drive sizes continue to increase, exFAT scales exceptionally well, supporting volumes as large as 64 ZiB."
While PIX 220i and PIX 240i units running version 3.02 will now be able to read and record to UDF-formatted drives, once a drive has been formatted as exFAT, it can only be accessed by a machine able to address exFAT. PIX 220i and/or PIX 240i recorders running firmware version 3.01 or earlier will not be able to address exFAT-formatted drives.
