Fostex’ new FR-2 records uncompressed to both CF and PCMCIA hard drives

Fostex has begun shipping the new FR-2 field memory recorder, first seen at the IBC and AES exhibitions late last year.

The FR-2 offers uncompressed recording at sample rates from 22.05kHz for extended recording time through 192kHz for quality sound acquisition and reproduction.

The BWF file format is used. The format has become the de facto standard for non-linear location sound recording and offers compatibility with most third-party software editors. Other professional features, such as a pre-record buffer (up to 20 seconds depending on bit rate and sample frequency) and an automated scene/take file naming routine, are borrowed from and were first seen in Fostex' PD-6 and DV40 DVD-RAM recorders.
