FOSTEX DV824 multitrack recorder

FOSTEX DV824 multitrack recorder for sale. Never used except for switching on and making sure that it works. Bought in February for a shoot that never happened! I am willing to accept 3000 GBP.

It has all the optional extras included, such as timecode generator and internal hard drive. Its basically ready to role.

The next generation of standalone multitrack recorders is here, and provides supreme quality 8-track recording to standard-size DVD-RAM discs in a unique package representing the very forefront of multitrack recorder design.
But, then again, you would expect nothing less from Fostex.

Market Leaders

Starting with the 8-track D80 almost 10 years ago and continuing with today’s acclaimed 24-track D2424LV, Fostex have been driving the standalone HD-based multitrack market forward through innovation and refinement. Now, with the experienced gained in implementing state-of-the-art DVD-RAM recording technology into the revolutionary DV40 Master Recorder and industry standard PD-6 DVD Location Recorder, Fostex present the new D824 DVD-RAM based multitrack.

DVD-RAM Technology

The DVD-RAM format has fast become the format of choice among audio, video and film professionals around the world. It has built-in error correction, (enhanced by ‘Verify/Write’ technology which constantly examines the recorded data being stored on DVD-RAM), is durable, and has longevity. It therefore seemed only natural to use the technology for a brand new breed of multitrack recorder.

Innovative Modular Approach

Fostex have identified that different applications require different interfacing options. For example, TV show recording will require timecode facilities, whereas live stage recording will not. Taking a leaf out of desktop computer design and to broaden the appeal of the machine across multiple applications and environments, the DV824 employs a unique modular card-frame approach. Primary recording and playback functions, along with metering, user interface and disc management, are all handled by the powerful mainframe, with additional functionality, (such as timecode), available via plug-in cards.
This allows the DV824 to be tailored precisely to accommodate diverse applications with plug-in options available for Timecode / Bi-phase facilities, IEEE1394 interface for direct data transfer to/from PC or Mac, and internal Hard Disk for dual disk recording with auto backup. - With the DV824 you only pay for the features and functionality you actually need. However, there is a lot more to the DV824 than its unique card-frame construction.

Predictable Sonic Quality

First there is the excellent audio quality offered by the high-definition recording engine which offers multitrack recording in one of six audio formats up to 24bit / 96kHz

Then there’s the full compliment of balanced analog I/O and AES/EBU digital I/O, the programmable playback feature (ideal for telecine playback), the comprehensive headphone monitoring, the smart file administration and Ethernet networking. In addition, the DV824 can be powered via AC or DC current, making it ideal for on-cart location applications, and it employs the same BWF file format and UDF disk format as other Fostex DVD-RAM machines for excellent PC/Mac compatibility. Finally, there’s the intuitive operation, thanks to a user interface which combines a 132 x 64 dot LCD display, positive-action buttons / switches, large LED time indicator, 18-bar level metering and intelligently written software.

Supremely Versatile

Ready for TV show recording, live stage recording, small event playback, large scale live theatre SE playback, on-cart location sound recording, telecine playback and more, the new Fostex DV824 is probably the most versatile multitrack ever designed.
