Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, the Lectrosonics Portable Digital Recorder Kit is designed to give you everything you need to record voice-audio remotely in a high-quality, digital manner—doing so with a portable digital recorder and a high-frequency, water-resistant lavalier 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 Lectrosonics M152/5P lavalier microphone, 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 TA5F connection point, making it eminently compatible with the recorder. It also provides an omnidirectional polar pattern, as well as a high sensitivity level with a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response equalized to better suit the human speaking voice.

  • 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.

  • Lectrosonics M152/5P - Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone

    The Lectrosonics M152/5P Omnidirectional Lavalier Microphone is highly sensitive, and features a wide frequency response that accentuates the presence and character of the human voice. The M150's frequency response is measured at 20Hz to 20kHz with a slight rise around 10kHz, resulting in a brighter, more "airy" response. A low frequency dip around 50Hz reduces noise caused by proximity effect and ambience. The omni-directional polar pattern provides a generous response at the direct and off-axis sections of the microphone capsule. The M152/5P is compatible with any Lectrosonics beltpack with a TA5 connector.

    Omnidirectional Polar Pattern
    The omnidirectional polar pattern provides a generous pickup at the direct and indirect sections of the capsule. The omnidirectional pattern is less susceptible to handling and clothing noise.
    Wide Frequency Response
    The wide 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response features a slight rise around 10kHz. The high frequency rise enhances high frequencies of vocals, creating an "airy" response.
    Compatibility with Lectrosonics Transmitters
    The mic is compatible with any other Lectrosonics beltpacks with TA5 connectord
