Fostex PD-2 Professional Portable DAT Recorder

Introduction


The
PD-2 was been primarily designed for film, video and TV location work, the requirements being: two high quality audio channels, the ability to record SMPTE/EBU timecode and portability.

The
PD-2 recorder fulfils all these requirements. Further more, the compact size of DAT cassettes and the ability to record two hours of 16-bit digital audio on one cassette make the PD-2 the perfect replacement for existing portable 1/4" analog recorders. Also, the increased impotance of audio for video and the introduction of NICAM digital stereo broadcasts, further strengthens the need for a high-quality alternative to analog 1/4".

The
PD-2 can use both IEC timecode and FOSTEX timecode. During location recording, for film, video or TV, the camera and audio recorder must share the same limecode source. Obviously, this restricts the movement of both the camera operator and the sound technician, who must always move around as a team.

The
PD-2 gives you freedom, once you have started recording timecode, the JAM function allows you to disconnect the external timecode source and let the PD-2's internal timecode generator continue striping the DAT cassette.
