Sound Devices 788T digital recorder
has been nominated for a
Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Technical Achievement Award
in the production category. The CAS’s Technical Achievement Awards recognize innovations in surround recording technologies.
The 788T is designed specifically for multi-track, on-location productions and features a significant expansion of input and output capability — eight full-featured microphone inputs and eight tracks of recording – all in a design that’s compact and lightweight.
To accommodate the larger data storage requirements of multi-track recordings, the 788T comes equipped with a 160 GB 2.5-in. internal SATA hard disk drive. This on-board storage provides up to 30 hours of 8-track, uncompressed 24-bit audio recording of industry-standard Broadcast Wave files.
“We are exceptionally pleased to be nominated for a CAS Award for the 788T,” says Sound Devices Managing Director Jon Tatooles. “This marks the third time that Sound Devices has received this honor from the CAS. We were very proud to win in 2006 for our 744T recorder and are proud to continue to be recognized for our dedication to developing audio products specifically for field and on-location productions.”
The awards will be presented at the 45th annual CAS Awards dinner on February 14 at the Millennium-Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
