Recorders for broadacst
These recorders use dual Compact Flash media for recording, which is immune to vibration, wear and weather damage. Confidence recording mode is available to monitor the audio off the card during recording. A touch-screen interface drives the recorder, and a simple user interface makes menus easy to navigate. The HS-4000 can operate in dual-deck mode, allowing it to function as two separate recorders. Other broadcast features include on-air playback mode and adding tracks to a playlist during playback. Interface options for the HS-2000 (two-track) and HS-4000 (four-track) include synchronization chase through RS-422, SMPTE timecode and parallel control. Pull-up and pull-down modes are available for post production workflows, as well as video sync to HD tri-level. Files are recorded as BWAV format, and AES31 import/export is also available. A remote control unit (RC-HS32Pd) is also available.
