Expanding on the legacy of reliable, professional recording of the PMD560 and PMD570 solid state recorders for permanent installations, Marantz is pleased to present the PMD580, a single rack-space digital recorder that adds advanced network control and automatic archiving to the capabilities of this popular line. Like its line mates, the PMD580 uses proven, stable Compact Flash (CF) as its recording medium, with the inherent reliability of no moving parts. But the PMD580 takes convenience and functionality to another level, incorporating Ethernet connectivity and an internal, browser-style interface that allows centralized control of all operations including scheduling of recordings, machine setup, and file transfer.
Professional Quality Digital Recording: With a choice of 16- or 24-bit recoding in a variety of file formats and quality settings, the PMD580 can handle everything from orchestral music to meetings and lectures with equal aplomb. Its FAT32 file structure is future-proof, handling any size CF card (up to 2 terabytes) behind its front-mounted security door.
Flexible File Formats: The PMD580 can record uncompressed WAV or compressed MP3 files across a variety of quality settings, with sample rates up to 48 kHz. Assignable options are accessible from the menu, making it simple even for inexperienced operators to select the best option.
Ease of Operation: With its intuitive front panel controls and menu-driven setup, the PMD580 is easy to use. A front-panel screen guides the user through selection of file format and quality settings, while a 12-stage stereo VU meter and headphone output with volume control.
