NAB CONVENTION, LAS VEGAS, NV, April 18, 2005 — Marantz Professional, a division of D&M Professional, exhibits the ideal technology replacement for the traditional rackmount cassette recorder — the PMD570 pro-installation solid-state recorder. The first rack-mount recorder that can record an entire 8-hour day (or longer depending on the selection of recording format, bit rate and media size) without changing media, the PMD570 offers MP3, MP2, WAV and BWF format compatibility. It records directly to affordable Compact Flash memory cards, which can be removed for easy file transfer to a computer or allow access to the files by utilizing the I/O port. Featuring variable bit-rate recording with user-adjustable sampling rates from 16 kHz to 48 kHz, the PMD570 provides unprecedented flexibility. Integrators and installers will appreciate the PMD570’s RS-232 control port both for control and to set up, maintain, and replace all preset settings via their PC. An advanced EDL marking system lets users mark and divide files in many different ways, as well as create new files on the fly during recording, providing easy file selection during playback. Marked files are recognized by the optional PMDEdit software, also available from Marantz Professional for easy file editing, management and archiving.

The Marantz Professional PMD570 is currently available with a suggested retail price of $1,099.99.
