Nicolas Kyvernitis Electronics Enterprises, distributors in the UAE have recently supplied the new PIX 240 from Sound Devices to the video department of Almoe AV Productions based in Dubai. The investment in the PIX240 has allowed the video department to directly record a video feed from their video cameras over HD-SDI into either a CompactFlash card or a solid-state hard drive and be able to quickly move the content to their post production suite. The PIX Series is part of Sound Devices new foray into HD video recording with both the PIX 220 and PIX 240. The Quicktime recording may be in either Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD via HDMI or HD-SDI, allowing professional production teams to interface with any high-definition video camera and more importantly be ready for the most popular editorial workflows. “Since Sound Devices have a strong background in production audio recorders, the PIX recorders not only prove to be great video recorders but they also include recording with the highest audio performance,” commented Shajahan K K, Sound Devices Product Manager at NMK. He added, “Almoe AV Productions will find that their workflow will now be more efficient and their productions will benefit in terms of quality with the purchase of the PIX240.”
