Sound Devices Updates Software for 7-Series Recorders
Reedsburg, WI - Apr 6, 2007 - Sound Devices will preview its next release of firmware for the 7-Series family of file-based digital recorders at NAB2007. This new firmware adds several new features to the recorders, including lossless audio compression, MP3 recording and multi-unit linking enhancements.
The update is available to Sound Devices users at no charge. The update includes an on-board FLAC encoder and PC software decompression tool. FLAC is an open source encoding algorithm used to data-compress sound files. No audio information is lost while compressing files more than 50 percent. Sound Devices developed a method to extend the protocol to keep all broadcast wave and IXML metadata intact on decompression.
A public beta release of the firmware will be available shortly after NAB2007.
