The Zaxcom Deva V hard-disk recorder won the Cinema Audio Society’s 2006 Technical Achievement Award, which was presented February 25 in Los Angeles. The award recognizes Zaxcom's achievement in contributing to the art, science, appreciation and advancement of sound in film production.
Zaxcom’s Deva V is a portable 10-channel field mixer that offers users 24-bit multidisk, multiformat location recording with backup to DVD. Audio from the hard disk can be mirrored throughout the day to either an internal or external DVD-RAM drive, allowing the sound mixer to end his or her day when everyone else does. Production staffers can immediately reference previous recordings on the set, reducing potential disputes with post and providing extra copies of recorded audio in the case of lost, damaged or stolen material. The Deva V also features a sunlight-readable, full-color touchscreen, 16 channels of audio mixing and a 15-second record buffer, as well as FireWire disk recording.
