Tascam HS-P82 Portable Recorder

The Tascam HS-P82 Portable Recorder offers 8 tracks of the highest quality recording, yet it's built for the rigors of location recording with reliable solid-state performance. The HS-P82 is built for location television and film production audio, with eight microphone inputs for big shoots or reality programs.

The Tascam HS-P82 Portable Recorder is an 8-track pro field recorder built on TASCAM's 30 years of reliable field recording. Audio is recorded at up to 192kHz/24-bit WAV format to a pair of Compact Flash cards. This solid state media is completely reliable with no moving parts, and you can record to both cards simultaneously for extra security (card-mirroring). The Broadcast WAV files include iXML metadata for quick import into nearly any video or audio editing system, either via the USB 2.0 connection or a standard card reader. For multi-microphone music or surround effects recording, the Tascam HS-P82 includes Mid-Side decoding – either recorded to the track or only for monitoring & playback. Microphone gain settings can be ganged together for input level control or fades, and inputs automatically mute when the gain is moved to its minimum setting.

TASCAM also provides firmware upgrades for products from time to time. The latest upgrade - V1.20 – provides the ability to rename takes and automatically start and pause recording in response to the state of an external timecode signal. The Tascam HS-P82 offers several options for power. It runs on either NP batteries or AA, an included AC adapter, external DC input or a V-mount adapter for Endura batteries. An internal slate microphone is available for naming takes. Functions like a 5-second pre-record buffer, front panel lockout and headphone output alert signal further inspire confidence. For high-resolution music recording, a set of AES/EBU connectors is available for attaching pedigree A/D converters and preamplifiers. SMPTE timecode in and out, video and word sync are provided. All of this is controlled from a color touchscreen interface which makes operation fast and simple.

8 Mic Preamps with a Discrete Structure EIN Rating of –125dBu Equipped
8 XLR inputs that support a phantom power supply have been installed, boosting signals through a high-sound quality Ultra-HDDA mic preamp that boasts an EIN rating of –125dB. This integrated mixer unit enables the recording of stereo audio. It goes without saying that recording across the eight inputs separately is possible, with recording in up to 192kHz also supported. The available file formats include the common BWF monaural files as well as poly files.

Full-Metal Body Creates a High-Durability Structure that Withstands Long, Intense Usage
The biggest feature of the HS-P82 lies in its specifications, which are high in reliability and durability, since its intended usage is for professionals. Mirroring recording onto the two CF cards and an auto-save function that prevents files from disappearing has been installed. Aside from the operational elements, the device is completely made of metal, removing all plastic. In particular, the side-panel is made from thick aluminum material that can withstand external shocks, resulting in high durability.

Combined Usage with the RC-F82 Fader Unit Provides Secure and Fast Operation
In addition, a tilted full-color touch panel display with high visibility was installed in order to ensure that users can comfortably use the RC-F82 in a setting that requires fast and accurate operation. A higher level of operability can be obtained by using the separately-sold designated RC-F82 fader unit. A large output headphone amplifier of 100mW/ch allows for comfortable monitoring. In addition, monitoring via the RC-F82 is possible, which is equipped with a large output headphone amplifier of 90mW/ch.

Professional Field Recorder that Completely Covers Operability, Durability, and Operational Efficiency
In addition to providing high cost-effectiveness, the HS-P82 is a professional portable multi-track recorder that balances various facets such as high sound quality, operability, durability, and operational efficiency, to ensure long-term usage in recording environments.
