TASCAM Announces DR-60D Audio for Video Recorder




DSLR Audio for Video Recorder

MONTEBELLO, CA (April 1st, 2013) – TASCAM is the Pro Audio Division of TEAC America. 

            TASCAM ‘s DR-60D is the new audio recording solution for on-set filmmakers and videographers using DSLR cameras. Until now, filmmakers have been using bulky audio recorders designed for music, and also trying to transform the inferior audio technology built-into DSLR Cameras. TASCAM has now designed an answer for pros and amateurs alike.

            The DR-60D is a brand new 4-track solid-state recorder utilizing TASCAM’s decades of experience. The recorder employs high-grade pre-amps, legendary D/A converters and a durable but lightweight structure and shape. This device will fit snuggly under any camera or into any rig, and record up to 96kHz/24-bit high quality audio straight to SD/SDHC media. Filmmakers have at their disposal (2) ¼”-XLR Locking Combo MIC/LINE Inputs, 3.5mm Stereo MIC Input, Camera In, Camera Out, Line Out and Headphone Out. Both ¼”-XLR Combo Inputs supply +48V Phantom Power and the 3.5mm Input supplies Plug-In Power for microphones requiring a bias voltage.

            The DR-60D is incredibly easy to use, employing TASCAM’s very popular user interface and external controls for every major operation. The body structure, soft-touch keys and dials are designed specifically to help eliminate handling noise. The multiple record modes including, 4-Channel Record, Auto Record and TASCAM’s Dual Record “Safety Track” Mode (first made popular on the DR-40) make the DR-60D one of the most versatile recorders on the market.

            TASCAM has spent years perfecting the DR-60D for the DSLR Filmmaking market. Everything was thought of, from the Slate feature for marking tracks, the RC-10 Remote compatibility, the quality of its internal workings, the design, the controls and connectivity. This is a product that will open doors, create possibilities and feed creativity. The DR-60D is another legendary product from a legendary company. TASCAM’s DR-60D is the (until now) unrealized product filmmakers have been waiting for.
