Zaxcom ships handheld digital recording mic

Zaxcom, a provider of audio equipment for the television and film industries, is now shipping the ZFR800 handheld digital recording microphone, a system designed for use in broadcast interviews.

The ZFR800 records up to eight hours of uncompressed audio on a removable 2GB memory card. An integrated time code receiver allows users to jam time codes and sync multiple ZFR800 units remotely.

The device provides an ergonomic, camouflaged control pad for one-handed control of all record functions. It can be used with any Shure screw-on capsule, giving users their preferred sound quality.

Audio files are always recorded without compression to minimize the opportunity for errors. Once in the audio control room, operators use the included ZaxConvert software to select the desired audio file format and resolution — often .wav files in 16- or 24-bit resolution with a sample rate of 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz or 48.048kHz.

Alternatively, users can opt to compress the audio into MP3 files, which are compressed for quick Internet-based delivery to transcription houses.
