Zaxcom Hard Disk Recorder

Looks like it will be introduced at NAMM and be available after that. Mike Falcon has been in discussion with Doug Oade about this unit and this seems more along the lines of something I would feel more comfortable using. Does anyone else have any info on this unit?

I think the guy that was on the oade board said that they are going to try to get this thing as close to $2000 as possible. That is expensive, but if you can burn to HD and DVD at the same time it just might be worth it.

I don't see much use for simultaneous HD and DVD recording for my applications, but can't wait for a portable (and hopefully really small) HD recorder to show up at a reasonable price.

I’m sure most of us have seen these.
I heard rumors of a model under $2k, but I poked around and the suggested retail for the least expensive model will be $8k+.

Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

after further research it looks like the unit we are waiting on is not one of these units but one to be released in 1Q04, which kinda sucks, but will incorporate many of the features you see in the other deva products, should be a nice unit

This is a post from the oade board from a Zaxcom employee
                                             -Matt M
Michel Falcon sent me an email about this so I figgered I would post
a reply here as well:

The Deva 3,4,5 are for Movie, TV and high-end music markets and range
from $8k to $15k. There is a cheaper Deva planned which will range
from $2k to $4k depending on features. The cheap Devas will be a
stripped-down repackaging of the high-end Devas.

The high-end Devas are our highest priority since that's like money
in the bank (since all of our competitors have each made some
critical design mistakes). Once we start selling the Deva 3,4,5 (we
will start selling before all the features are available for it -
maybe in September) we will start concentrating on the low-end
Devas. We were planning on designing the low-end Deva concurrent
with the Deva345 but we decided that's not feasible with the limited
number of engineers that we have, so the scheduled release for the
low-end Devas has been pushed out to the 1st quarter of 2004.

An interesting side note, to reduce the amount of time needed to
convert the high-end Devas into low-end Devas we are using the same
processor configuration found in the high-end Devas which is an 1800
MIPS floating point DSP. So the low-end Devas will have gobs of
processing power.

I am still accepting feature suggestions for the low-end Devas by the
way.

thanks matt, most of the info I get is from mr falcon, and if have feature suggestions email howy at howard@zaxcom.com

I dont believe this is something they are putting on the back burner, yet something they are building for us, tapers as he says, start saving, this should be a great product
