BBR1D BLACKBOX RECORDER

BBR1D BLACKBOX RECORDER

The BLACKBOX RECORDER BBR1b and D are a novel concept in live recording technology – a multi-track for the 21st century. it is no longer necessary to dismantle your home studio or recording studio to take a complete Digital Audio Workstation into a live venue to capture your live performance.

The BLACKBOX RECORDER plugs into any standard live mixing console via the normal insert points and not only allows for the capture of the performance but also will record the sound check to help set the foldback mixes and allow the performers to hear the live mix for themselves. In difficult acoustic spaces it also lets the sound engineer achieve the best balance without exhausting the band with endless rehearsals before the gig.

The BLACKBOX RECORDER provides 24 tracks of audio recording directly onto a removable USB2 disk drive that can be immediately plugged into your Digital Audio Workstation after the gig.

Recording the audio at up to 96kHz and at 24 bit resolution into standard Broadcast Wave (BWAV) files on a standard FAT32 formatted drive allows the user to replay the material on any workstation. Just unplug the disk from the back of the BLACKBOX RECORDER and plug it into your workstation as an external disk. No copying or reassembling your studio is required and you have every mixer input recorded and available to create the perfect live remix.

For really large multi-track recordings, multiple BLACKBOX RECORDER units can be chained together and operated from a single control surface.

The unit has been designed to be as simple as possible to operate, recognising that during a live performance the sound engineer will naturally need to concentrate on the sound for the audience and the performers.

Consequently, having connected up the unit to the desk the BBR1 defaults to all tracks being armed ready for record; just pressing Record will start the recording. If the record button is pressed again whilst in record, the BLACKBOX RECORDER will automatically start a new recording so that each song can be easily identified later. To end a recording requires the STOP button to be held for 2 seconds to ensure that the recording cannot be stopped accidentally.

A foot switch input is also provided and can be set up to duplicate the record button function so that the engineer doesn’t even have to move away from the console.

Panasonic AJ-P2C016HG (AJP2C016HG) – P2 16GB solid state memory card

Panasonic AJ-P2C016HG (AJP2C016HG) – P2 16GB solid state memory card

Now you can hire extra P2 cards from TFS. Or if you have your own camera why not hire spare cards for your shots.

At the heart of the P2-Series is Panasonic’s new plug-in PC-card type media. Called P2 (“Professional Plug-in”), these solid state memory cards are neither tape nor disk and require no mechanism. P2 cards fit neatly into the slots of P2 Series equipment and record DVCPRO50/DVCPRO/DV data. The P2 card is extremely rugged, enabling the P2 camcorder to achieve outstanding anti-vibration and anti-shock performance. Most importantly, the P2 card’s compact size, light weight, large capacity and expandability bring an entirely new era of mobility to news gathering. P2 Series equipment records in MXF (Media Exchange File) – a file format whose exceptional PC versatility is transforming the news production workflow. The P2 card mounts directly into the PC card slot on a PC, so you have instant access for non-linear editing and for transferring data with no digitisation required.
