Video Devices has released a free firmware upgrade for its PIX-E series of 4K-compatible recording monitors.

Version 3.0 allows users to record a high-quality, edit-ready Apple ProRes .mov file for mastering and a much smaller H.264 .mp4 file for content review, shot listing or web streaming.

With the upgrade, an applied look up table (LUT) is baked into the H.264 .mp4 file and saved via an SD card. The master ProRes 4K file is then saved to the Video Devices’ SpeedDrive without the LUT.
