Zaxcom has added new display screens to all new Deva and Fusion audio recording systems. The new screens are three times brighter, allowing users to quickly and easily view and adjust all of a recorder’s settings — such as scene, take, note and roll number metadata — even in direct bright sunlight.
All new Deva and Fusion systems will now ship with this brighter display screen, and the upgrade is available to existing users as well.
The Deva family provides multidisk, multitrack, multiformat recording on location, with automatic backup to DVD-RAM or CompactFlash storage. With the ability to background-record multiple disks throughout a day, Deva users can save time in feature film and television productions by recording disk copies required for post production while the original recordings are being created.
Production staff can reference previous recordings immediately on-set, thereby reducing potential conflicts with post, while also safeguarding against lost, damaged, or stolen material with automatically generated backup copies.
The Fusion audio recorder and mixer combines the Deva's feature set with low weight and power efficiency by eliminating the use of a hard drive. The system records to two CompactFlash cards simultaneously, ensuring 100 percent solid-state recording for purposes of redundancy and flexibility.
