Product Description

This has been a light week with only a couple of announcements for those into video production. Tascam made a niftier version of its 32-bit handheld audio recorder with the Portacapture X6, and Teradek launched the Prism Mobile, a professional camera-back encoder for 4K HDR streaming.

Tascam Portacapture X6

A handheld audio recorder has been a mainstay of the indie filmmaker's kit for a long while now, and Tascam has always had some sweet products in the running. The brand's latest X8 model upped the ante with 32-bit recording and now we have an even niftier Portacapture X6 to check out.

Handheld audio recorders are an almost essential part of any video producer's, musician's, field recorder's, or podcaster's kit and it's very nice to see them getting updated. The current trend is to pop in 32-bit float recording. The amount of data being stored in these files is so great that you effectively are working with unlimited dynamic range. This is "set it and forget it" because you'll be able to recover anything too quiet or loud without issue. (Not 100% true, since good technique is still very important, but you get the point.)

Anyway, this isn't the first time we have seen this tech―many field recorders picked up the tech. The handheld recorders are just now seeing it show up. Tascam did it with the X8, although that was a larger device with 6 inputs; many people don't need that many on an average day. The X6 provides everyday users with a more portable (and more affordable) recorder option.
