"These units represent a significant leap in affordable field recording," said Paul Foschino, senior manager for professional audio in Sony Electronic's Broadcast and Production Systems Division. "Their ability to record and playback high quality uncompressed PCM linear audio and to transfer those files directly to computers for editing represents a tremendous savings in time. These capabilities, coupled with long battery life and easy-to-read display visibility address the real-world needs of recording engineers and journalists."
The new recorders, with removable 1GB MiniDiscs, allow up to 94 minutes of uncompressed recording time and as much as 34 hours in ATRAC3 plus format. The low cost of the Hi-MD media, which has a suggested list price of $7, allows users to archive their original recordings and makes data transfer extremely easy and inexpensive.
The recorders also feature a USB port for Macintosh and Windows/PC operating system connectivity to address a range of professional recording applications including music, interviews and field recording.
The Hi-MD MZ-M100 features a six-line large EL (Organic Electro-luminescence) display and the Hi-MD MZ-M10 has a large five-line LCD display. The new recorders also include:
The Hi-MD MZ-M100 and the Hi-MD MZ-M10 are both planned to be available in August at suggested list prices of $439.95 and $329.95, respectively.
