JoeCo’s latest addition to its BlackBox family of multi-channel – the Blackbox BBR1MP – is on preview at IBC2013, which opened yesterday. Designed with the broadcast and location recording customer in mind, the new BlackBox BBR1MP recorder is a 24-channel, 1U recorder housing 24 microphone preamps operating at up to 24bit/96k. The unit will feature a range of connection options including individually switchable mic/line inputs and balanced outputs, video sync, time code and word clock inputs and an optional Dante interface. There will also be an optional 2U breakout box. Alongside the unit’s multi-channel recording capabilities, provision is also included for creating a simultaneous stereo mixdown. Full support for iXML data is provided. The BBR1MP will run off a 12V power source. Unused channels and features can be disabled in order to preserve battery life on location. The unit will also be fully controllable via iPad using JoeCoRemote. “Many existing customers regularly use their BlackBox Recorders directly linked to third party mic preamps, but would like a more compact and elegant solution, so our decision to move in this direction is, once again, customer driven” said JoeCo’s Joe Bull. “The new BBR1MP is a practical answer for broadcast engineers and location sound recordists working in film and TV, as well as for live engineers, combining quality and ease of use with size and weight advantages. As more and more audio material has to be captured in multi-channel format to be repurposed for surround broadcasts and other deliverables, a fully integrated BBR1MP recorder with high-quality converters, conveniently sized for field/location use, has many advantages for different broadcast applications.” The new BBR1MP is expected to be available in early 2014. www.joeco.co.uk
