Fostex PD-4 Professional DAT Recorder
The Fostex PD-4 is a Professional Four Head Timecode Digital Audio Tape Recorder Combined with a High Quality Three Channel Mixer in One Portable Package.
The Fostex PD-4, successor of the PD-2, remains a reference for DAT portable time recorders.
Later upgraded to the PD-4V2
Bringing together the highest audio quality and full-function capability in a rugged but lightweight package, the PD-4V2 meets all the requirements for the demanding professional on location.
Features such as confidence monitoring via the four head transport, full timecode recording including JAM sync and the on-board three channel mixer with mic attenuation, phantom power, low-cut filter and a limiter on each channel are now augmented by the addition of a headphone matrix.
Powered through on-board NP-1B type batteries or via an optional external AC adaptor, the PD-4V2 weighs in at less than 3.2Kg meaning port-ability doesn't have to be sacrificed for functionality and is flexible enough to fit into all professional movie making and TV production environments.
