A portable audio system for video production.

The DR-701D is TASCAM's flagship recorder for single-shooter video production.

A timecode generator is included for location reference, which can be jam synced from a SMPTE generator, camera or smart slate. The HDMI in and out allows a DSLR camera to start recording on both devices, and video clock prevents drift between sound and picture.

Four mic inputs can be individually recorded and mixed to a stereo track, for a total of 6-track recording. For additional tracks, multiple units can be cascaded together. The lightweight, yet rigid chassis is forged from a magnesium alloy. Tripod mounts on the top and bottom of the unit allow the unit to mount under a camera, attach to a follow-focus cage, or used stand-alone.

Designed for the needs of professional filmmakers, television producers, advertisers and documentarians, the DR-701D packs high quality multi-track recording into a package compact enough for use with any camera.
TASCAM becomes a Sennheiser Technology Alliance Member with the latest firmware update for DR-701D.

Viewed as the ultimate portable audio system for video production the TASCAM DR-701D now supports Virtual Reality (VR) content creators with the Version 2.00 firmware update. This update supports Ambisonics recording by enabling encoding both A and B formats and providing a real-time stereo monitor mix of B format content.

Along with robust and compact body, DR-701D is the ideal recording solution for VR production.
