Sound Devices' 970 Wins Cinema Audio Society Award

News Image
Sound Devices' 970 rack-mount, multi-track audio recorder has won the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Technical Achievement Award in the Production category.

The Cinema Audio Society was formed in 1964 to recognise innovations in recording technologies used by sound mixing professionals. Sound Devices has now been a recipient of the CAS Technical Achievement Award five times. The 744T and 788T Production Recorders and the 664 and 633 Field Production Mixers are all past winners.

"To be consistently recognised year after year for our new products with CAS Technical Achievement Awards is a remarkable accomplishment," says Matt Anderson, President of Sound Devices. "At Sound Devices, we continue to push the boundaries by presenting high-quality, innovative tools that make a difference in the demanding workflows of our customers in the motion picture and television industries. We couldn't be happier that the 970, our first-ever dedicated rack-mount audio solution, is being recognized for doing so."

Sound Devices' 970 records 64 channels of monophonic or polyphonic 24-bit WAV files from any of its 144 available inputs, including 64 channels of Ethernet-based Dante, 64 channels of optical or coaxial MADI, eight channels of line-level analog and eight channels of AES digital. The half-rack, 2-U device simplifies any application requiring high-track-count audio recording. The 970 records to any of four attached drives, two front-panel drive bays (behind the screen) and two rear-panel e-SATA-connected drives. Material can be recorded to multiple drives simultaneously or sequentially. With its built-in, rock-steady Ambient Recording Lockit time-code technology, the 970 is well-suited to operate as a master clock.

The 970 also features an embedded Web-based control panel for machine transport and setup control over Ethernet-based networks as well as file transfer over the data network with SMB. In addition to RS-422 and GPIO control, the unit also allows for format conversion between analog, AES digital, MADI and Dante. Sound Devices' 970 is designed with a large five-inch screen for metering of up to 64 tracks and for fast and intuitive menu control.
