Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, the Lectrosonics Portable Digital Recorder Kit is designed to give you with everything you need to record voice-audio remotely in a high-quality, digital manner. It does this by providing you with a portable digital recorder and an omnidirectional lav microphone. The recorder captures audio on SDHC cards at the broadcast standard (24-bit/48 kHz) and outputs BWF files. Time code jamming via the 5-pin LEMO connection allows you to sync audio with video in a relatively straightforward and convenient manner; as such, this kit is suitable for actors on set, interviewers in the field, and other people/scenarios requiring free-roaming audio recording for video purposes.

The recorder offers a servo-bias preamp, especially useful for the provided Countryman B6, as it bestows the power necessary to run the Lav. Furthermore, the recorder sports a TA5M input jack, a 3.5mm output jack, a durable machined-aluminum construction, and a compact design for hiding it on an actor's body. It runs on AAA lithium batteries.

The lav, on the other hand, sports a Switchcraft TA5F connection point, making it eminently compatible with the recorder. It also provides generous headroom, allowing the user to employ his or her full range of voice. It's omnidirectional in polar pattern, black in color, unobtrusive in nature, and provides a wide frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

  • Lectrosonics Portable Digital Recorder

    Designed for capturing high-quality digital audio that can synchronize with timecode, the PDR from Lectrosonics is a digital recorder which captures industry-standard 24-bit/48 kHz audio in WAV (BWF) formats. It is particularly useful in situations when using a wireless microphone is impractical, such as when distance to a wireless receiver is too far, or when the quality of wireless recording simply won't cut it.

    The PDR stores its recordings on microSDHC cards, and accepts audio via its TA5M 5-pin male connection point. An LCD and on-board keypad allow for quick and intuitive operation of the unit's controls. Via simple controls, the PDR's input can be adjusted to record at both mic- and line-level sources, utilizing a Lectrosonics' servo-bias preamp for both 2 and 4V lavalier microphones. You can also monitor directly from the unit through headphones or any compatible line-level device, so long as it boasts a 3.5mm connection point.

    To synchronize time code with video and film production, a 5-pin LEMO jack is provided. This ensures that you can easily align its audio in the video timeline of any editing software, and gives you the ability to tether to a camera for the purpose of capturing a high-quality backup recording to boot. At 2.4 x 2.1 x 0.7", the PDR is easy to conceal in costumes, and can easily be left out of sight on a set to capture ambiance, as well as environmental and location sound. Its machined aluminum construction is durable.

  • Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone (Black)

    The Countryman B6 Omnidirectional Microphone is a miniature lavalier microphone for virtually invisible operation during stage performances, video and film shoots, houses-of-worship applications and general public speaking.

    The capsule measures only 0.1" in diameter and is resistant to moisture, which allows for placement in hair and on bare skin. In addition, its omnidirectional polar pattern minimizes handling noise, wind noise and plosives (popping), making the B6 a favorite in theater applications.

    A wide variety of colors and connections are available for use with various wireless transmitters. This version is black and features a Switchcraft TA5FConnector connector for Lectrosonics transmitters.

    Miniature Unobtrusive Capsule
    The miniature capsule measures only 0.1" (2.54mm) in diameter. The B6 is available in various colors that will virtually render the entire microphone invisible against the skin. This version B6 is black and more information on which color suits you best, can be found on the Countryman support page.
    Moisture Resistant Frequency Caps
    Three frequency response altering caps provide flat, bright and very bright high-frequency enhancement. In addition the caps are resistant to moisture caused by perspiration, make-up, humidity, etc.
    Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
    The omnidirectional polar pattern is most effective in minimizing wind noise, plosives (popping) and handling noise.
    Sensitivity Optimized for General Speaking
    The B6 is available in three sensitivities. This version is optimized to accurately capture general speaking without distortion and noise. Placement on the chest or lapel provide optimum results and is ideal for presentations, sermons, speeches, etc.
