single-shooter video production

The DR-701D is Tascam’s flagship audio recorder for one-shot video production. It includes a timecode input and a timecode generator for easy synchronization with a SMPTE generator, camera, or smart slate. The HDMI in and out allows a DSLR camera to start recording on both devices, and video clock prevents drift between sound and picture.

Designed for the needs of professional filmmakers, television producers, advertisers, and documentarians, the DR-701D packs high-quality multitrack recording into a package compact enough for use with any camera.

Perfect Synchronization Functions for Demanding Projects

A timecode generator is included for location reference, which can be jam synced from a SMPTE generator, camera, or smart slate. The HDMI in and out allows a DSLR camera to start recording on both devices, and video clock prevents drift between sound and picture.
Four mic inputs can be individually recorded and mixed to a stereo track, for a total of six-track recording. For additional tracks, multiple units can be cascaded together. The lightweight yet rigid chassis is forged from a magnesium alloy. Tripod mounts on the top and bottom of the unit allow the unit to mount under a camera, attach to a follow-focus cage, or used stand-alone.

Special innovations:

Record the same audio with a DR-701D and your camera
A dedicated connector is included to output mixed audio to the DSLR or video camera. This way, the same audio can be recorded by both the DR-701D and the camera. The output level has been made adjustable considering that input levels differ among camera manufacturers and input adjustments on cameras are limited.

Monitor the audio from the camera
A camera input makes it possible to monitor the audio from the DSLR camera during playback. By using this with the DR-701D monitor selection function, you can easily listen to not only the DR-701D but also audio from the DSLR camera.

Record ambience with your video camera mic
The external input can be used to connect video camera mics that have stereo mini jack outputs (like the TASCAM TM-2X). One possible setup is to connect a video camera mic to the EXT IN 1/2 input for recording ambience, and XLR shotgun mics to inputs 3-4. Plug-in power can also be supplied to the mini jack input for those mics needing it.
