Switchcraft AudioStix Adaptors And Transformers
AudioStix are Switchcraft’s newest additions to its expanding line of premium pro-audio products. The range consists of audio adaptors and impedance matching transformers which are supplied in compact, all-metal cases. The two audio adaptors have 3.5mm stereo inputs and are designed to connect devices, such as MP3 players and laptops, to house sound systems – model 318 provides mic level output via an XLR connector, and model 319 provides line level output via a three-way terminal block. Both products feature level controls and ground lift switches. Transformer isolation provides immunity from hum and buzz caused by ground loops and RF 72 interference. The impedance m a t c h i n g transformers have XLR to BNC connections and adapt 110 ohm to 75 ohm for AES/EBU. The range may be used as standalone a d a p t o r s , rear mounted into modular rack panels or permanently installed into any number of custom racks and wall plates. AudioStix are made in the USA and carry a lifetime warranty. ■

Sound Devices Debuts PIX 260 Recorder
Sound Devices introduced its new PIX 260 production audio/video recorder at NAB. Based on Sound Devices’ field-proven PIX 220 and PIX 240 recorders, the rack-mounted PIX 260 is a file-based video/audio recorder/player that replaces tapebased video decks in production and post-production environments. Using the Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs, the PIX 260 records and plays files up to 220 Mbps in high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2 video as well as 32 tracks of 48 kHz audio. Files from the PIX 260 are ready for direct import into Avid and Final Cut editing environments, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding. Files can also play out of the PIX 260 for real-time applications. Continuing the company’s heritage in production sound, Sound Devices has infused the PIX 260 with 32-track record/playback capability. In addition to 16 channels of embedded SDI audio and eight channels of HDMI audio, the PIX 260 also accepts eight channels of line-level analogue I/O and eight channels of AES digital audio. Using Dante, the PIX 260 can accept and transmit up to 32 channels of audio over Ethernet. The PIX 260 has a built-in fiveinch 800 x 480-pixel video display that allows users to view video and setup-menu selections. With its extensive control capabilities, the PIX 260 is a flexible video playback source that is compatible with Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X and Avid sessions. The PIX 260 can be controlled by both external RS-422 and via Ethernet through the embedded Web server, allowing for machine transport control over Ethernet-based networks. Up to four SATA drives can be connected to the PIX 260 simultaneously. All four drives can be recorded to simultaneously, for RAID-1 type redundancy and to eliminate the need for post-record copying when multiple copies are required. The PIX 260 includes a builtin Ambient Clockit timecode generator/reader with genlock output for multi-camera and doublesystem sound applications. This stable timecode can be read from the SDI stream, the HDMI stream or from an external source. The PIX 260 includes a sophisticated scaler and framerate converter. Regardless of the incoming signal, the PIX recorders can record the signal after up, down or cross-conversion at the same rate or a different rate. Hardwarebased 3:2 pull-down removal is included as well. PIX 260’s convenient 1/2-rack, 2U chassis dimension allows it to be easily integrated into any existing environment. It is powered by 1027 VDC through its four-pin XLR connector. ■
