7th Nov 2016

When the distance is extreme or using a wireless microphone is not practical, the PDR recorder can travel with your subject and capture professional quality audio, synchronized with timecode. It’s tiny size is unobtrusive and easily placed in garments and costumes, and easy to conceal when used as a “plant” microphone to capture environmental or location sound.

The input connector is the industry standard TA5M jack that accepts any mic or line level signal, and provides bias voltage to power a wide variety of electret lavaliere microphones. The input connection and wiring is compatible with microphones pre-wired for use with Lectrosonics professional wireless microphone transmitters.

The PDR records to class 10, HC type micro SD cards. The micro SD card slot is covered by a flexible “flap” style cover.

A standard 3.5 mm TRS jack provides audio output for headphones and line levels signals. A 5-pin LEMO connector is used to synchronize (“jam”) timecode for video and film production.

Setup and adjustment is made through an intuitive interface provided by the keypad and LCD. In keeping with typical Lectrosonics mechanical designs, the housing is machined from a solid aluminum billet for the ruggedness needed in field production.
