Zaxcom’s ZFR200 audio recorder is designed to act as an ultra-compact and lightweight replacement for wireless microphones. The ZFR200 records on microSD cards and features an integrated SMPTE timecode reader/generator. With a nylon polymer casing that reportedly provides water and corrosion resistance, the ZFR200 weighs just 3.5 ounces.
The unit can receive remote-control and timecode signals via Zaxcom’s IFB100, the new ZaxNet 2.4-GHz wireless network, or a manual timecode jam. The ZFR200 can output audio as either 24-bit/48-kHz timecode-stamped broadcast wave (.wav) files or timecode-stamped MP3 files. Each unit is powered with a single AA battery with up to 14 hours of run time.
