The PIX 240 offers both HD-SDI and HDMI input and simultaneous HD-SDI and HDMI outputs. Additionally, the PIX 240i has a tunable, high-accuracy timecode generator/reader by Ambient complete with Genlock (or word clock) output.

The timecode source can be derived from an HD-SDI stream, from an external jammed source, or from the built-in generator.
