The PDR, A Small But Mighty Audio Backup Solution from Lectrosonics

Nick of Talamas shares the features of the Lectrosonics PDR. Smaller than a deck of cards, the PDR from Lectrosonics is a great solution to address distance from the camera and RF interference. Available in sales at Talamas, it's a pocket-sized backup solution that delivers high-quality audio and piece of mind. Interested in the PDR? Just give us a call. We'd be happy to help. The PDR records in 24 bit, 48 kHz digital onto a Micro SD card (HC type) in the industry-standard .wav (Broadcast Wave File) format. The PDR can be jammed to external time code via the standard 5-pin Lemo connector. A headphone output jack allows for monitoring the signal input or listening to previously recorded files.

The tiny size of the PDR makes it easy to conceal in costuming or be conveniently placed when used as a “plant” microphone to record environmental or location sound.
The audio is recorded on a micro SD card (HC type ).

When the distance is extreme or using a wireless microphone is not practical, the PDR recorder can travel with your subject and capture professional quality audio, synchronized with timecode. It’s tiny size is unobtrusive and easily placed in garments and costumes, and easy to conceal when used as a “plant” microphone to capture environmental or location sound.

With a time code sync at the start of the production, the audio track is easily placed accurately in the timeline of a ideo clip. The industry standard .wav (BWF) file format is compatible with essentially any audio or video editing software.

The recorder can also be tethered to a camera to capture a higher quality or backup audio recording. The headphone output doubles as a line output to feed the AV input on a camera.  The input connector is the industry standard TA5M jack that accepts any mic or line level signal, and provides bias voltage to power a wide variety of electret lavaliere microphones. The input connection and wiring is compatible with microphones pre-wired for use with Lectrosonics professional wireless microphone transmitters. Setup and adjustment is made through an intuitive interface provided by the keypad and LCD. In keeping with typical Lectrosonics mechanical designs, the housing is machined from a solid aluminum billet for the ruggedness needed in field production
