A single rack-space digital recorder with advanced network control and automatic archiving.

The rackmountable Marantz PMD580 brings advanced network control capabilities to the solid state recorder format; a product category in which Marantz leads the field.

A highly versatile solidstate recorder, player and full-fledged network device, with Ethernet LAN and USB connectivity, the PMD580 is designed for broadcast, pro-audio and professional AV applications. Drag and drop file transfer and network remote control, via the PC and Mac compatible web-based GUI, are major features allowing users to set menu parameters, schedule recording events, and transfer and archive audio files.

The PMD580 recorder has an internal clock for scheduling recording events; multiple events can be scheduled via the web interface and recorded files can then be downloaded to a local PC/ Mac. Files can also be uploaded automatically to a server or network location, at a user specified time. Ease of use, low maintenance, robust recording media, and network connectivity recommend it where operator skill is minimal, such as in education, government agency and commercial AV applications.

Professional audio credentials include balanced analogue and digital AES/EBU I/Os on XLR connectors, as well as unbalanced interfaces, and RS232 control. Recording is selectable between mono and stereo, and linear PCM and MP3 formats - providing .WAV and MP3 file types. For PCM recording, 16 and 24-bit options are available and for MP3, bit rate is selectable between 32 and 384 kbps. Record start and stop times can be scheduled and a pre-record memory buffer enables recording to be activated at the start of an event. The integrated time and date generator automatically stamps all sessions. Network Operation and Control with Record Scheduling
With its Ethernet connectivity and internal Web GUI, the PMD580 operates as a website, addressable from any computer on the network, allowing full remote setup and control. This web interface is integral to the design, requiring no extra software and compatible with both PC and Mac network environments. Recording sessions can be scheduled in advance, and recorded files can be downloaded directly to a computer.

Automatic Archiving
For ultimate convenience, an automatic archiving feature allows the uploading of recorded files to any specified network location, eliminating the need to physically walk the CF card back to the storage server. With the ability to lock out front panel controls and track real time, the user can confidently schedule the day's recording to be archived to a designated computer or server at the end of the day, so the Marantz PMD580 is always ready to handle the next day's activities. And with its FIFO based file deletion, card maintenance can be completely avoided for a fully automated recording system.

Professional Quality Digital Recording
With a choice of 16 or 24-bit recording in a variety of file formats and quality settings, the PMD580 can handle everything from orchestral music to meetings and lectures with equal aplomb. Utilizing its full complement of professional balanced and unbalanced digital and analog inputs furthers it recording qualities and capabilities.

Flexible File Formats
The PMD580 can record uncompressed WAV or compressed MP3 files across a variety of quality settings, with sample rates up to 48 kHz. Assignable options are accessible from the menu — front panel or Web-GUI, making it simple even for inexperienced operators to select the best option for their application.

Ease of Operation
With its intuitive front panel controls and menu-driven setup, the PMD580 solid state recorder is easy to use. A front-panel screen guides the user through selection of file format and quality settings, while a 12-stage stereo VU meter and headphone output with volume control enable quick and sure confirmation of recording status.

System Compatibility
With full professional inputs and outputs, both analog and digital, the PMD580 integrates easily into any system. Analog I/O includes both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connections, while digital capabilities include both AES/EBU and S/PDIF inputs and outputs. Beyond that, an RS232C port enables remote control in Crestron and AMX systems, while an Ethernet connection makes the PMD580 a full-fledged network device for both acquisition and playback.

Convenience Features
The Marantz PMD580 includes numerous functional recording and editing features. Files can be marked and divided either manually while recording, as well as automatically in predefined increments, making it easier to sort through hours of recorded materials. Whether used manually, via RS232 control or via its IP network interface, the PMD580 offers both comprehensive recording capability and ease of operation, making it the ultimate solid state recorder for the installation market.
