The high-resolution, 2-channel Sound Devices 702T compact flash field recorder implements a no-compromise audio path which includes Sound Devices’ next generation microphone preamplifiers. Designed specifically for high bandwidth and high bit rate digital recording, these preamps set a new standard for frequency response linearity, low distortion performance, and low noise.

Its Compact Flash storage is a reliable industry standard. It's known for its pleasant-sounding, low-noise microphone preamplifiers, the accuracy of its onboard Ambient time code generator, and the ability to record to convenient, removable Compact Flash cards and external FireWire drives. The removable, rechargeable battery is the popular Sony-compatible Li-ion camcorder cell. The 702T interconnects with Windows and Mac OS computers for convenient data transfer and backup.

With the diverse timecode setups encountered in production, the 702T can accommodate all of them: rec run, free run, with/without smart slate, or multiple camera with “lockits. ”

Files captured on this recorder are available for immediate import to broadcast WAV-aware editing applications, such as Avid and Final Cut Pro.
