Solid-State Audio Recording at NEVAC

Whilst NEVAC is known for its video recorded interviews we continue to make sound recordings for a number of different archival uses. Having used mini-disc recording equipment for nearly ten years we have recently purchased solid state digital sound recording equipment. As digital technologies change we are left with little choice but to move on and as mini-discs are becoming an unsupported technology it has made sense to move towards solid-state recorders which use memory cards.

We have purchased the Marantz PPMD 660 Professional Model which has been proven by continued use by students in the University's Media Centre and by staff at the National Sound Archive.
