German codec manufacturer, Mayah Communications will launch the FLASHMAN II at IBC 2007.
Mayah's new portable recorder can simultaneously record and transmit audio back to the studio using IP capable networks. The unit has two switchable microphone/line input XLR connectors and two headphone/line outputs.
It can record in three formats (PCM WAV, MPEG 2/3 as well as MPEG 4) to SD cards or USB sticks removing limitations on the storage capacities. Marks can be added during recording and playback.
Transmission can be done via Ethernet IEEE as well as most modern connections and interfaces for wireless communication. The optional PCMCIA adapter can give Wi-Fi and 3/3.5/4 G capability to the unit.
The dual capability will permit reporters to transmit live, and also edit pieces immediately after for subsequent re-use.
Mayah will also unveil the SPORTY Portable reporter codec capable of transmission over ADSL, SDSL or Wi-Fi and 3/3.5 G with the PCMCIA adapter. The SPORTY features a new user interface aimed at making portable transmitting and recording as simple as possible whilst offering multiple formats for each capability. SPORTY also features a new longer lasting battery and a monochrome LCD display readable in darkness and direct sunlight.
