The Compact and powerful Video Devices PIX-E5 5 Inch 4K Recording Video Monitor can record 4K video over HDMI and 1080p over 3G-SDI to SpeedDrive SSDs.



The PIX-E5 also has a built-in 5" 1920 x 1080 resolution touchscreen for monitoring framing, checking focus, and displaying scopes. Video Devices designed the PIX-E series of recorders to be compact so you can use them with small cameras and camcorders without weighing them down excessively.


As a subsidiary of Sound Devices, Video Devices implemented a few pro-audio features as well. Aside from being able to record audio from the digital video connections, the PIX-E5 has analog audio inputs in the form of 3.5mm jacks. To expand the pro-audio capabilities of the PIX-E5, a separately available XLR audio mixer with meters can screw into the bottom 1/4"-20 tapped hole.



PIX-E5 Features:


Video Recording


The PIX-E5 can record resolutions up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) from HDMI sources and uncompressed 1080p from 3G-SDI sources in the Apple ProRes format in up to 4444 XQ. DCI 4K can be recorded at up to 24 fps and up to 30 fps in UHD (3096 x 2160). HD footage can be recorded at up to 60p for slow motion or projects requiring that frame rate. All inputs have a loop-through output which can go to a client or director's monitor.


High-Resolution LCD Touchscreen and Controls


With a bright 1920 x 1080 resolution touchscreen IPS LCD, the PIX-E5 can display scopes clearly, as well as perform precise punch-ins for focus confirmation. The capacitive touchscreen can be used to navigate menus as well as direct the focus punch-in area. Even though the large touchscreen is convenient, Video Devices has also implemented their intuitive, classic rotary encoder menu navigation style found on the PIX-240i as well as their classic tactile dome-shaped buttons so you can change your settings without putting fingerprints on the screen. For durability, the glass on top of the LCD panel is Gorilla Glass 2 which is scratch and shatter resistant.


SpeedDrive Media


The PIX-E records to affordable and fast SpeedDrives. SpeedDrives are based on industry standard mSATA drives contained within a custom-designed USB 3.0 enclosure. The SpeedDrive, which plugs directly into the PIX-E, can double as a standard USB 3.0 thumb drive for high speed offload to any computer without the need for a special cable or drive docking station. SpeedDrives can be bought stand-alone or as an enclosure to hold a 3rd party mSATA drive for more capacity options.




The PIX-E5 can operate off external 10 to 34 VDC or with readily available Sony L-mount batteries. If you switch power sources during operation, the PIX-E5 will seamlessly switch without causing a shutdown.

Video & Audio Recorders

  • Using the pix E5, if I input an sdi signal will it output that signal via hdmi?

    Yes, the Pix E5 will cross convert between SDI and HDMI. Both outputs are active simultaneously. However, if your input is a 4K signal, the output signal is down-converted to HD.
