COMPATIBILITY GUARANTEED - The product designation "PIXCI D3X" refers to a series of 24+ custom-configured imaging boards; each optimized to support one of 24+ specialized digital cameras. Before a camera is added to the Camera Compatibility Guide, EPIX tests the camera and designs a camera-specific interface. Engineers custom program the PIXCI D3X interface to exactly support the camera's video timing specifications and electronically tag the board with the camera's identification code. An "Adjust Dialog" menu, optimized to match the camera's capabilities, is added to the XCAP imaging program.

OPTIMIZED IMAGING SYSTEMS - EPIX, Inc. offers complete imaging systems including cameras, imaging boards, software, cables, computers, lenses, and lighting. All components of an EPIX imaging system are configured and tested together, as a system, so the system can be guaranteed to work properly, the first time, right out of the box.


TTL Module The optional TTL Module minimizes false triggers when using a TTL trigger with a cable longer than one foot. The TTL MODULE converts the TTL trigger into a differential signal for reliable triggering with up to 200 feet of cable. The TTL MODULE also can generate a TTL strobe from the attached PIXCI® board. Compatible with PIXCI® CL1, CL2, CL3SD, D2X, D3X, SI, and SI4.
