Fairlight unveils 4K video recorder10 April 2013
NAB 2013 sees the release of PYXIS 4K – a new ultra high definition video recorder.
“PYXIS 4K is the result of Fairlight’s extensive research in ground-breaking video and audio resolutions. It will deliver a cost effective and future proof UHD Video recording/playback solution with extensive audio capabilities to the broadcast, cinema, post production and events industry”, commented Jean-Claude Kathriner, CEO of Fairlight.
PYXIS 4K, powered by Fairlight’s Crystal Core processing engine, records compressed or uncompressed video formats from SD up to 4K and delivers transparent playback in up to 4K, dual-channel 2K resolution. Feature-packed PYXIS 4K records up to 96 audio channels simultaneously, and offers up to 96 playback channels at 48K/24bit. The system integrates in existing workflows, supporting all common 4K video file formats (DPX, DCP, MXF, JPEG 2000, XAVC), graphic formats and codecs natively.
Multiple systems can be synchronized with Fairlights proprietary inter-machine sample lock system for playback in up to 8K resolution.
PYXIS 4K is available as a standalone or rack-mountable turn-key unit, or as ‘PYXIS 4K.kit’ with Crystal Core Media Processor to integrate into a Fairlight ratified PC, SX-20 I/O unit and appropriate software.
