PMR61 SUPERSCOPE PROFESSIONAL AUDIO RECORDER
Audio recording of meetings, conferences, lectures, interviews, hearings and music performances, has been a constant in the professional world for decades. Regardless of the purpose of these recordings, everyone benefits from a reliable, accurate, clear recording that is can be instantly distributed, reviewed, archived and transcribed.
Enter the Superscope PMR61. A brand synonymous with professional audio recording, Superscope has created professional audio devices for more than five decades. The PMR61 is the next generation, and possibly the world's smartest digital audio recorder.
SIMPLE DESIGN AND OPERATION
The PMR61 is clearly a different type of recorder. Its uncluttered, non-technical design is comfortable in any meeting, interview or conference room, while still compact enough to fit in a briefcase or backpack. However, easy operation is the key to the PMR61 design. With a simple top panel layout consisting of only four buttons, all critical setup functions are included in the touch screen menu, which not only gives immediate status during recording, but also allows for easy setup, navigation, and operation. Built-in 16GB of internal memory for hours of uninterrupted recordings. Also available in 32GB version (PMR61-32).
RECORD CHECK AND AUTO INPUT DETECT
Superscope’s revolutionary design automatically detects input sources and determines the appropriate level settings prior to recording. “Record Check” is an automated process that determines the settings for you. During Record Check, an automated audition that takes only 15 seconds selects the appropriate sensitivity, attenuation, input levels and record level to provide the best setup. When the test is completed, PMR's settings are displayed while you can listen to what your recordings will sound like with the by touching Play Test File. Audio Test Files are not saved in PMR's internal memory and therefore do not require you to delete them.
The PMR61 records to it's internal memory and to ubiquitous USB flash drive media. With the side mounted, USB 2.0 port, simply insert your USB flash drive and recordings will be ready to hand off instantly when recording is finished. Record to Internal and USB simultaneously to provide a failsafe file redundancy for mission critical recording applications. PMR can also be setup to record exclusively to USB media exclusively which eliminates the need to manage and delete older recordings in internal memory to free up recording space.
USB MEDIA CHECK
USB Media has become the most common and accepted removable media for use globally and the PMR61 digital audio recorder has the ability to conveniently record directly to it. However, while USB drives looks very similar, their performance for real-time digital audio recording is not all the same. PMR61’s USB Media Check feature is designed to help identify USB compatibility with PMR61. Contact us to discuss recommended media.
BATTERY AND AC OPERATION
For many applications, the PMR61 may have a permanent home at a meeting table or on a desk. In these instances, the included DC power adapter can be utilized to power the unit. The PMR61 can also operate on four off-the-shelf AA alkaline or Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) rechargeable batteries. This efficient and affordable option will power the PMR61 for approximately 3 hours, and like a smart device, PMR61 automatically recharges whenever it's plugged in. So its ready to go when you are. Most importantly, when the PMR61 is operating on AC power, if power is interrupted, the batteries seamlessly take over, ensuring critical recording will continue.
RECORDER SETTINGS (SETTINGS.DAT.FILE)
The PMR61’s smart and simple design manages 50 recorder settings that come preset from the factory. But since recording applications and environments can vary, changing any of these settings can be performed easily on the PMR61 to adapt to each specific recording situation. The PMR61 allows you to manage all of these settings as a group by creating what is referred to as a settings.dat file. The DAT file (short for data file) created by the PMR61, was designed to easily save and archive your settings.
Selecting proper settings for your specific recording application is a critical first step in the recording process and securing those settings with a PIN helps to minimize operational errors. PMR61’s settings.dat file provides an easy way to save and archive settings and also provides large organizations a convenient and reliable setup for multiple PMR61 for delivering consistent operation and results.
AUDIO FILE MANAGEMENT
PMR61's advanced file naming method makes it very simple for operators to identify recorded files. By setting the Date and Time in the PMR's internal clock, each PMR recording is automatically Date and Time stamped and written into the file name. The recorded files are displayed and listed according to the Date and Time when the Record button is pressed.
PMR61 file names can also include up to 2-User Defined Areas providing additional information stamped into the file name. Once the user areas are defined, this information, along with the Date and Time, will be automatically written into the file name. PMR61's smart and simple method for file naming, and the ability to restrict access with a PIN, provides professional operators and organizations a secure, easy and intuitive process for identifying and managing recorded files.
There are millions of business meetings, lectures, conferences, seminars, legal proceedings, music performances, and much more taking place every day requiring audio recording. These one-shot recordings can fail dramatically due to poor record settings, improper setup, or simply by not pushing the Record button. Superscope designed the PMR61 to help prevent failed recordings, and to provide an ease of setup and operation never before realized in a stand-alone audio recorder.
