Professional Rackmounting Solid State Recorder for Installation

The most obvious thing to do when you've designed the Marantz PMD670 is to produce it in a non-portable version, and this is precisely what Marantz have done with the PMD570. In effect this is a pro-installation solid state recorder, and it's a boon for those of you who need a permanently fixed way of recording your meetings, conferences, church services, whatever you wish... in high quality digital format without the traditional shortcomings of tape and disk media to let you down.




Extensive Capability

Designed with compatibility for MP3, MP2, BWF, and WAV formats, the PMD570 boasts an impressive 40 assignable quality settings as well as a FAT32 file allocation table for future multi-gig file compatibility.

Simple Operation

With one button press, users can record audio files to affordable and widely available microdrives or compact flash cards.

RS-232c Control of Functions and Presets

The PMD570 is the first installation solid-state recorder in a history of innovative recorders to feature true installation quality and full two-way RS-232 control. Users can also setup, change, and replace all preset settings via RS-232 and their PC, which is ideal for install with multiple units. One can simply flash the units with the desired settings, parameters, and recording algorithms.

On Demand Marking
Expanding on the marking capabilities of the Marantz Professional PMD670, the PMD570 allows the end-user to mark and divide files in many different manners. Just like the PMD670, one can make an EDL mark or create a new file (track) either by the front panel or by a contact closure signal. The PMD570 will also be able to mark a file or create a new file by RS-232 control or by utilizing a new Marantz Professional wired remote to be released in the near future.

Minute Track Mode Recording

While recording, the PMD570 has the ability to create new files while recording at a number user definable increments for easy navigation through hours of audio. A new file (track increment) can be created by the PMD570 at 1, 5, 10, 15, and 30 minutes as well as 1, 2, 6, 8, 12, and 24 hour intervals for long-term, unattended audio recording.

Transfer Audio Files to PC

The PMD570 features a computer I/O connection that allows it to be easily linked for rapid file transfer to your PC or MAC computer. Users can drag and drop recorded audio files to their computers hard drive in minutes without the real-time delay disadvantages of cassette, mini disc, or DAT recording.

Compact Flash - the Media

Record it right the first time and avoid all of the timely transfers and expensive conversions associated with cassette, mini disc, and DAT recordings to your PC or server. Archiving meetings on cassettes is expensive and space consuming. With the Marantz Professional PMD570 and one inexpensive Compact Flash card, you can archive over 50 hours on one 700MB compact disc. That's over 33-90 minute cassettes worth of recording. And with compact flash media being used in so many digital cameras, it is a format that is here to stay.
