Marantz NETWORK SOLID STATE (PMD580) Product Details
Expanding on the legacy of reliable, professional recording of the PMD560 and PMD570 solid state recorders for permanent installations, Marantz Professional is pleased to present the PMD580, a single rack-space digital recorder that adds advanced network control, automatic archiving, and high-resolution recording 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, web interface that allows centralized control of all operations including scheduling of recordings, machine setup, and file transfer.
With high resolution, 24-bit recording, professional analog and digital I/O hardware, RS232 control, and a myriad of other advanced features, the PMD580 is the ideal recording device for facilities such as universities, corporate meeting rooms, government buildings, churches, and broadcast organizations.
Network Operation and Control with Record Scheduling
With its Ethernet connectivity and internal Web GUI, the PMD580 operates as a website, addressable from any computer on the network, allowing full remote setup and control. This web interface is integral to the design, requiring no extra software and compatible with both PC and Mac network environments. Recording sessions can be scheduled in advance, and recorded files can be downloaded directly to a computer.
For ultimate convenience, an automatic archiving feature allows the uploading of recorded files to any specified network location, eliminating the need to physically walk the CF card back to the storage server. With the ability to lock out front panel controls and track real time, the user can confidently schedule the day’s recording to be archived to a designated computer or server at the end of the day, so the PMD580 is always ready to handle the next day’s activities. And with its FIFO based file deletion, card maintenance can be completely avoided for a fully automated recording system.
Professional Quality Digital Recording
With a choice of 16 or 24-bit recording in a variety of file formats and quality settings, the PMD580 can handle everything from orchestral music to meetings and lectures with equal aplomb. Utilizing its full complement of professional balanced and unbalanced digital and analog inputs furthers it recording qualities and capabilities.
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 - front panel or Web-GUI, making it simple even for inexperienced operators to select the best option for their application.
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 enable quick and sure confirmation of recording status.
With full professional inputs and outputs, both analog and digital, the PMD580 integrates easily into any system. Analog I/O includes both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connections, while digital capabilities include both AES/EBU and S/PDIF inputs and outputs. Beyond that, an RS232C port enables remote control in Crestron and AMX systems, while an Ethernet connection makes the PMD580 a full-fledged network device for both acquisition and playback.
The PMD580 includes numerous functional recording and editing features. Files can be marked and divided either manually while recording, as well as automatically in predefined increments, making it easier to sort through hours of recorded materials. Whether used manually, via RS232 control or via its IP network interface, the PMD580 offers both comprehensive recording capability and ease of operation, making it the ultimate solid state recorder for the installation market.
