Recording and Studio
|Otari has chosen the 112th AES show in Munich to introduce the new generation of its broadcast MO-recorder/editor model DR-10. Features are tape recorder like operation, high audio performance, networking capability for fast file exchange, and professional broadcast editing features via a user-friendly graphical interface with wave form display. Up to 24 bit quantisation with up to 96 kHz sampling rate are standard. DR-10 supports wave and BWF file format.
The DR-10 is a true 2-channel broadcast recorder with 4-channel playback, designed for stand-alone or network operation in on-air but also post production and mastering studios. The system is fitted with all standard analogue and digital in/outputs, allowing timecode operation and synchronisation.
The CB-170 is an optional, dedicated edit-remote-controller. Another broadcast tool is the optionally available CB-174 - an instant playback controller. Standard storage media is the widely used 3,5" MO offering 75 track/minutes recording at 24 bit/96 kHz using 1.3 GByte media.
Otari also launches a digital broadcast console DB-10 for small radio studios. The mixing desk can be fitted with 5 to 10 input channels including A/B input switching. In console cascade mode up to 4 units can be linked to expand the number of channels. A unique feature of DB-10 is its "Emergency-Bypass" function. When activated in any condition of malfunction always one microphone and stereo line path are switched directly to the main output bus to guarantee uninterrupted audio, even during console rebooting. After pressing the EMG button again, DB-10 will automatically resume its previous operation.
Further showing will be the established music post-production & film console Elite+ and the 24/48-Track Recorder Radar II.
