Video Devices Releases PIX-E Series Update

News Image
Video Devices has released Firmware Version 1.05 for the PIX-E Series.

The firmware update, enables the PIX-E Series recording field monitors to now include several standard lookup tables (LUTs), the ability to utilise custom LUTs, and support for HDMI recording triggers for Panasonic cameras.

To aid onset viewing, most camera manufacturers provide monitoring LUTs to convert the cameras' LOG output into easily viewed imagery that more accurately represents the final recorded image. PIX-E users can use the new customisable touch-screen options for quick-tap comparison of simulated looks using up to four LUTs.

With firmware v1.05, the PIX-E monitors are equipped with several standard LUTs, but custom LUTs can also be used via SD card or SpeedDrive.

The update also expands HDMI recording triggers to include Panasonic cameras – such as Panasonic Lumix GH4 – in addition to triggers added previously for Sony and Canon cameras.

The PIX-E Series of 4K recording monitors includes two released five-inch models, PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H, as well as the upcoming seven-inch PIX-E7. The line was designed to cater to the varying needs of production professionals; from camera operators to video assist technicians. The monitors are equipped with a full suite of precision monitoring tools, and the ability to record 4K and Apple ProRes edit-ready files to any mSATA-based SpeedDrive.

The five-inch models are suited for smaller format DSLRs, while the seven-inch model is ideally suited for larger cameras. Both the PIX-E5 and PIX-E7 monitors have SDI and HDMI I/O, while the PIX-E5H has HDMI I/O only. The monitors are available as 1920x1080 (PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H) or 1920x1200 (PIX-E7) LCD displays, which are color-accurate and sunlight-viewable.

"The features being added to the PIX-E Series with firmware v1.05 are the direct result of requests from users in the industry," says Paul Isaacs, Director of Product Management and Design, Sound Devices. "The variety of LUTs we have added to the monitors enable production professionals to simulate their desired final appearance while still recording the full-dynamic range needed for post production."
