Audio equipment provider, Zaxcom will launch a new addition to its Deva hard disk recorders at IBC 2007. The Deva 5.8 will feature recording, mixing and effects capabilities within one package. In addition to recording 10 tracks of audio direct to either hard or flash disk, the new system will also give the option of recording to an internal DVD-RAM drive. The flash memory card slot is mounted on the control panel allowing easy transfer of material from the production site to post-production staff. The Deva 5.8 can be integrated with a control surface, the Deva Mix-12, for its internal mixer allowing it to perform all location mix and record functions.
Zaxcom will also be showing its IFB100 audio transmitter. Using a single radio frequency carrier the IFB100 can transmit timecode, IFB audio and remote control signals to any number of the company's TRX900 wireless systems. The unit can record a group of channels and play them back as a virtual multitrack recording.
"We're pleased to introduce our new IFB100, which will be shown for the first time at IBC2007. Because the unit operates on the 2.4-GHz wavelength, it can be used license free in almost any country, effectively expanding the reach of our company and technologies to a more global marketplace," said Glenn Sanders, president of Zaxcom.
The unit's 125-mW RF power output provides a range of up to 300 feet for transmission of IFB audio and up to 1,000 feet for remote control and timecode transmissions. The integrated LCD panel allows users to check the transmission status and the timecode of the IFB100 more easily.
