Firmware Update v1.04 for PIX-E Series Also Available

REEDSBURG, WI, AUGUST 31, 2015 — Video Devices, a brand of video products developed by Sound Devices, LLC, is now shipping the PIX-E5H. The highly anticipated PIX-E5H is the latest in the PIX-E series of 4K recording monitors to be available.  It offers HDMI-only inputs/outputs for customers that do not need SDI capabilities. In conjunction, Video Devices also announces the release of Firmware Version 1.04 for the PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H.

With v1.04, both the PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H support HDMI recording triggers for Sony and Canon cameras. The update also adds the 500GB Samsung 850 EVO mSATA solid-state drive to the approved media list, for use in the removable USB-based SpeedDrive™. In addition to other enhancements, firmware v1.04 increases the previous HDMI audio inputs and outputs to four and eight channels, respectively.

“We’re excited to officially ship the PIX-E5H, just in time for IBC 2015,” says Paul Isaacs, Director of Product Management and Design, Sound Devices, LLC. “After releasing the PIX-E5 last month, we collected ample feedback from our customers regarding requests for enhancements and new features. While incorporating these changes, we recognized a need for additional HDMI functionality. We look forward to finding new ways to incorporate the growing needs of the industry into the PIX-E family.”

Both of the five-inch, 1920- x 1080-resolution, 441-ppi PIX-E5 and PIX-E5H monitors come packed with a full suite of precision monitoring tools and the ability to record 4K edit-ready files to the affordable SpeedDrive. Designed as an HDMI-only video alternative, the PIX-E5H records a range of Apple ProRes codecs from Proxy to ProRes 422 HQ. The PIX-E5, which comes equipped with both SDI and HDMI I/O, has the added ability to record the highest quality Apple® ProRes 4444 XQ.  

Included in the impressive suite of monitoring tools is TapZoom™ for unrivaled focusing speed, false colors and zebras to help set exposure, guide markers for framing, and a range of scopes, including waveform, histogram, and vectorscope. PIX-E camera-mount monitors incorporate a “best-of-both-worlds” user interface that combines easy-to-access tactile buttons with an intuitive touch screen. The monitors also feature robust, die-cast metal housings and an LCD display protected by damage resistant Gorilla® Glass 2. These features make the PIX-Es ideal for cinematographers and videographers seeking monitors that can stand up to the rigors of the most extreme and demanding production environments.
