Fostex D-15 Professional DAT Recorder
The Fostex D-15 was introduced in July 1997.
The D-15 features 8 Mbit of DRAM on-card to provide instant start, ‘RAM scrub’ and ‘RAM repeat’ with 1 ms accuracy for precision cueing with advanced jog/shuttle techniques.
In addition, this facility has been utilized to provide the simulated ‘vari-speed’ required to enable a linear DAT transport to perform the chase synchronisation offered when the optional 8335 timecode expansion card is fitted.
The RS-422 serial card complies to the RS-422 protocol with the exception of the vari-speed command enabling controllers to shuttle the D-15 to selected locations.
The 8336 card must be used in conjunction with the 8335 timecode card.
The basic D-15 model had a suggested retail price of 3,295 US Dollars.
The D-15TC featured an internal time code sync card and had a suggested retail price of 3,890 US Dollars.
The D-15TCS features both an internal time code sync card and RS-422 video machine control (minus Vari-Speed) had a suggested retail price of $4,085 US Dollars.
