PDA for the PDR

Lectrosonics has just announced their entry into the world of bodypack recorders with the PDR Digital Recorder!

The PDR is designed to record audio with time code in circumstances where a traditional full sized recorder or wireless system is impractical, such as extreme sports, public events, or complicated documentary or reality shows. The recorder is lightweight, unobtrusive, and easily hidden in clothes or as a plant mic.

The PDR provides a headphone output for monitoring or file review or can be set as a line level output to cascade to a transmitter via the MC70 adapter cable. It can also be tethered to a camera; the headphone output doubles as a line output to feed the AV input.

The BWF (.wav) file formatted audio tracks include time code data for easy synchronization. There are two recording modes: HD Mono records the audio in a single file; Split Gain records two different channels in the file, one at the normal level and another at -18 dB as a safety track.

It retails for $749 and is expected to start shipping soon. Initial supply may be limited, so preorder now for earliest possible delivery!
