MARANTZ PMD570 LEADS INDUSTRY IN AUDIO GATHERING AND PROFESSIONAL RECORDING
— PMD570 Professional Installation Solid State Recorder uses
Compact Flash media
for reliable high-quality recordings —
INFOCOMM, LAS VEGAS, NV, June 8, 2005 —
D&M Professional, manufacturer of the Marantz Professional PMD series
of recording products, offers systems integrators the PMD570 Professional
Installation Solid State Recorder. For years Marantz Professional has
been the industry leader in providing recording and audio gathering
solutions for houses of worship, corporate boardrooms, courtrooms, municipal
meetings and countless other applications. With the PMD570, Marantz
brings cutting edge solid-state technology to professional installed
recording systems, providing complete reliability and outstanding sound
The PMD570 is ultra-reliable because it has no moving
parts. The single-rackspace unit records in mono or stereo directly
to commonly available Compact Flash cards — the same type used
in digital cameras — in MP3, MP2, WAV and Broadcast WAV formats.
With over 40 quality settings, the PMD570 supports sample rates from
16 to 48 kHz, and bit rates from 32 to 384 kbps, as well as full-quality
16-bit PCM resolution.
Operating the PMD570 couldn’t be simpler: a single
button push is all that’s required to initiate recording. Yet
the unit offers incredible flexibility and a full array of professional
features. Marking allows the user to mark and divide files in many different
manners. The PMD570 has the ability to create a new file (track increment)
while recording. Files can be created in intervals of 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.
The comprehensive input and output complement on the PMD570
includes balanced XLR line inputs with trim, unbalanced RCA line in
and out, and stereo S/PDIF input and output on coaxial RCA jacks. Remote
control is provided via full two-way RS-232C interfacing; users can
set up, change and replace all preset settings using a PC, which is
ideal for installs with multiple units. A new professional wired remote
control, the RC600, is also available.
The PMD570 features USB computer connectivity for easy
linking and file transfer to a PC or Mac®. Audio files can be instantly
dragged and dropped to the computer, eliminating wasted time doing transfers.
