HD Recorders

Clark Media provides multiple recording options to suit the specific needs of our clients. We offer legacy tape based recorders like Sony XDCAM as well as direct to digital recorders like the AJA KiPrp and Sound Devices PIX270i. Playback options include EVS XT Nano, EVS XT3 and MAC Playback Pro Plus. We always consider the end product needed when selecting the proper devices for your production.

KI Pro Rack

AJA Ki Pro Rack

With a wealth of professional connections, Ki Pro Rack will fit right into your existing cabling and routing system. It  records either 10-bit Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD files direct to removable hard disk or SSD storage modules, eliminating the need for time-consuming logging and capturing. The files can be used in most editing systems without the need for additional transcoding or importing processes.


Sound Devices PIX-270i

The Sound Devices PIX 270i file-based recorder delivers the performance, quality, and reliability required for fast-paced studio, live sports, event, and mobile multi-camera production. It seamlessly replaces tape-based and disc-based video decks and provides a cost-effective and compact alternative to complex video servers. Extensive network connectivity and multi-unit synchronization support grouping multiple PIX recorders over Ethernet for simultaneous frame-accurate multicam recording and playback.  The PIX 270i records and plays back either Quicktime video or audio-only WAV files to removable 2.5-inch solid-state drives. Recording to multiple drives offers immediate file backup, eliminating time-consuming post-record copying.

Playback Pro

MAC Playback Pro Plus

PlaybackPro Plus is a multi-channel player that does cuts and dissolves between clips, has variable fade and kills settings, and allows individual control of each clip’s gain, saturation, gamma, volume and black levels. It automatically adjusts to the output resolution and aspect ratio. Content in any ratio (4:3, 16:9, etc.) has infinite adjustability through sizing, stretching and cropping, yet it’s completely non-destructive to original files.  Virtually any file type can be played back by adding easy to find QuickTime components. Plugs directly into high-resolution switchers via DVI or VGA, and can utilize files on a high-speed RAID array or media network.
