The satellite Broadcast Video Expo event in Manchester earlier this week was the occasion of the first public showing anywhere of the new Nagra Seven digital recorder. The Seven has been designed as the successor to the Nagra LB, ARES-C and ARES-BB+ recorders, and fills a gap in the market. “No one builds a high-quality 2-track recorder any more,” Audio Technology Switzerland/Nagra Audio sales director John Owens told PSNEurope at the expo. “So we did.” The standard machine is a 2-channel, 24-bit digital recorder offering sampling frequencies up to 192kHz and comes AES 42-ready for use with digital microphone applications. There’s a colour touchscreen and an onboard graphic editor, plus USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports. An internal 16GB Micro SD is supplied as standard, but memory can be expanded via an SC card slot. Hardware options include 3G and WiFi, SMPTE/EBU timecode and ISDN. It weighs 800g, inclusive of batteries: “It runs on eight AAs,” adds Owens, demonstrating the machine on the booth of UK distributor Sennheiser. “Hang it off your shoulder and away you go.” www.nagraaudio.comwww.sennheiser.com
