About Tascam HS-2000

The Tascam HS-2000 2-Channel Stereo Audio Recorder/Player is a professional solid state recorder designed for the needs of broadcast and post-production studios, housed in a 2U rack-mountable chassis. The unit enables you to record and playback time stamped Broadcast WAV files at up to 96kHz 24-bit resolution, along with Timecode from an SMPTE input source for synchronization, editing and identification. The unit records the audio onto one or two CompactFlash memory cards for a redundant backup.

The recorder features balanced XLR outputs, a separate balanced XLR monitor output and Confidence Monitoring for near instantaneous playback in professional broadcast applications. The unit can be controlled by its TFT tilt touch screen display, D-Sub parallel, serial RC-220, Ethernet and by RJ-45 port with the optional Tascam controllers RC-HS20PD or RC-HS32PD.

Tascam HS-2000 Features

  • Confidence monitoring allows you to listen immediately to the signal as it is recorded-The HS-2000, which has been designed with a focus on high-level professional use, includes a confidence monitoring function that lets you play back and listen to the file that is being recorded
  • Mirror recording provides even greater certainty: Mirror recording can be said to be ideal regardless of whether or not you are recording to solid-state media. You can utilize the dual card slots of the HS-2000 for mirror recording to two CF cards
  • Timecode input and output are standard features: Since this unit is designed for broadcast applications in which coordinated use with other devices is important, timecode input and output are standard features
  • Various types of external control can be used at the same time: Not only can you use various remote controls and external control interfaces, you can even use all of them at the same time
  • On-air mode, online function and other transmission features: These units also have excellent features for use as stereo broadcast playback devices, including functions specifically for broadcast transmission. Using the on-air mode, you can transmit files placed in the root folder of the CF card
  • Four operation modes that respond to the requirements of various conditions are included: The definition of "superior operability" depends on the use conditions and the operator. The HS-2000 includes four operation modes in order to respond to various conditions and user needs
  • Real-time operating system (RTOS) created to resist infection and other threats: For the operating system, adopted a real-time operating system (RTOS) developed for use with real-time applications. This OS can respond to various needs of broadcasts that ordinary PC-based systems are unable to handle
  • Supported for Gigabit Ethernet enables flexibility and a wide-range of applications: Using a network, even more flexibility and a wider range of applications are possible. With support for 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet, these units use the common file transfer protocol (FTP)
  • Focus on quick and stable operation and security to eliminate user stress: In addition to using RTOS, considered operational security from a variety of angles. All of the connectors include locking mechanisms to prevent accidental disconnection
  • Touch-sensitive TFT color displays enable intuitive operation: The graphical user interface shared by the HS series enables intuitive and straightforward operation. The menus are simple with only one level and you can return to the Home Screen with one touch when you complete making a setting
  • Choose from a lineup of multiple remote controls according to needs: The features that are needed differ according to the operating situation. In order to respond to these needs, it offer a lineup of multiple controllers
  • Support for VNC and the ability to use connected computers to check and control units: These units support Virtual Network Computing (VNC) over local area networks (LAN). You can view the screen of an HS-2000 on a computer connected to it on the same LAN
  • CF cards used as recording media (Ultra DMA supported): CF cards that boast high durability because their contracts are not exposed are used for the recording media. High durability also results from using media that do not require rotating mechanisms
  • Independent circuit boards for each connector prevent contact defects due to twisting: Since the layout includes one circuit board for each connector, not only do they boast excellent strength against twisting and pulling from cables, interference with other connectors is also suppressed
  • Tough CANARE BNC connectors that are nut-tightened: Unlike ordinary connectors that are fixed to circuit boards, the CANARE BNC connectors used in the HS-2000 are individually secured using nuts, providing superior strength against pulling, twisting and other forces
  • High-durability knobs use metal even in their stems: An aluminum materials is used in the HS-2000 DATA knob to prevent breaking and the reduction of operability due to deterioration
  • BurrBrown PCM1796 D/A converters: In these units, used BurrBrown PCM1796 digital to analog converters units because they have earned great praise for audio applications
  • Decoupling capacitors that contribute to power supply stability also selected carefully: In audio equipment, a stable power supply is indispensable for providing high audio quality
  • Power sections use high-capacity capacitors and achieve audio quality and high efficiency in compact space: The power sections use high-capacity capacitors in order to provide stable power supplies
  • NEUTRIK metal-plated connectors allow little sound quality degradation over time: These units include metal-plated XLR connectors made by NEUTRIK that resist oxidization even over long periods of use and maintain high audio quality
