The PIX-E5 excels in providing what discerning cinematographers and videographers need most: high-resolution, color-accurate, sunlight-viewable monitoring, with a wide 179° angle of view. With the press of a button or a tap on the touchscreen, the PIX-E5’s impressive suite of monitoring features provide all of the tools necessary for unrivaled focusing speed, exposure assistance and framing.

LCD - Detail, Accuracy, Brightness.
Discerning cinematographers and videographers need high-resolution, colour-accurate, sunlight-viewable monitoring with a wide angle of view. The PIX-E5 monitors excel in all those aspects with their IPS, 500 nit, 1920x1080, 441ppi LCD displays.

It has never been faster to zoom in and check focus! TapZoom provides instant 2x or 4x zoom to where you tap on the touch screen. Tap again to zoom out. Once zoomed in, tap on the screen in the direction of a moving subject to keep it centred - the perfect tool for quickly checking focus when an actor lands short or overruns a mark

Outstanding Recording Capabilities 
The 4K-compatible PIX-E5 offers the full range of Apple ProRes codecs including the highest quality Apple ProRes 4444 XQ. This is a 12-bit codec designed to preserve the detail in wide dynamic range imagery captured by today's high performance digital image sensors. PIX-E5 can record 4K up to 30 fps, UHD up to 30 fps and 1080p or 720p up to 120 fps.

The PIX-E5 is also capable of recording H.264, a codec which offers a good balance between compression and quality to reach low data rates and small file sizes, perfect for web streaming, email, and faster file uploads. Like ProRes, H.264 may be recorded to the SpeedDrive, if chosen as the primary codec. Otherwise, end users can enable the monitor's dual codec recording capability, where ProRes is recorded to the SpeedDrive and H.264 is simultaneously recorded to an SD card. While recording 4K in ProRes, the monitor will automatically scale the 4K to 1080p for recording H.264, thereby reducing its file size even further. If a LUT is active, it will be baked into the recorded H.264 file, but will not impact ProRes recordings. This is ideal for when you want to simultaneously record a full dynamic range, log-encoded ProRes master file for the edit suite and a REC709 H.264 file suitable for normal viewing.

SpeedDrive Recording and File Delivery
The PIX-E5 records to the innovative, super fast SpeedDrive, a custom-designed enclosure for an industry standard mSATA drive. The SpeedDrive, which plugs directly into the PIX-E, doubles as a USB 3.0 thumb drive for very high speed offload to any computer without the need for a special cable or drive docking station.

User InterfaceSome functions are better controlled via touch screen and others by real buttons. PIX-E5 incorporates both types of control. The touchscreen is best used when interacting directly with a specific area of the displayed image such as zooming in to a point of interest with TapZoom.

Buttons allow the operator to locate a control without looking and instant tactile response leaves no doubt a function has been activated. Button control is well suited to commands such as 'Record' where failure to activate can be catastrophic.

Mechanical Construction and Powering
With a compact, die-cast metal chassis, nutted connectors, and an LCD protected by scratch-resistant and optically-bonded Gorilla Glass 2, the PIX-E5 field recording monitors are designed to withstand the most extreme and demanding production environments.

The PIX-E5 is powered by external DC (10-34V) or dual L-mount Sony batteries with powering seamlessly switching from one source to another should one become depleted or removed.
