From now through November 30, 2005, all HHB (booth #227) PortaDrives ship with a free Workflow Package comprising a PDRDSUF FireWire/USB Docking Station and a PDRDVDBU multiformat DVD-R/CD-R Back-Up Drive, in addition to the standard accessories. With native support for AES31-3 ADL and Pro Tools Version 5 formats, files recorded on PortaDrive instantly transfer to PC and Mac DAWs.
According to HHB managing director Ian Jones, "I believe we have now reached and passed a defining moment in the changing face of location audio acquisition. We're delighted that so many sound mixers making the transition to disc-based recording are choosing to do so with PortaDrive. Now, the enhanced features of the new Version 2 operating software, combined with the Workflow Package deal, makes it even easier for those still using DAT to make the move."
