TASCAM's HS-2000 provides broadcast and post studios with the functions of timecode DAT on a reliable solid-state-based transport. Recordings are captured to a pair of Compact Flash cards, either individually or to both for redundancyConfidence Monitoring is available to listen to audio off the card while recording. In addition to recording and logging tasks, the HS-2000 includes On-air and monitor play modes.
Audio on the HS-2000 is captured as Broadcast WAV files, including a timestamp from the SMPTE input source. The transport can be controlled over RS-232C, RS-422, Parallel or LAN control. Balanced analog audio is interfaced through XLR connectors, and multi-channel AES/EBU digital I/O is available.
A color TFT touchscreen is used to change settings and view meters on the HS-2000, making the GUI simple to use. Three remote controls are available with a variety of flash start, transport and fader functions.
