No moving parts! Records to CompactFlash cards
By storing audio data on CompactFlash (CF) media cards, all of the mechanical hassles of tape recorders are gone forever - as are the costs of servicing and maintaining them. Not only that, but CF storage lets you go with different recording formats, and makes transferring audio files to computers a snap. With a 4GB CompactFlash card, the PMD-580 record more than six hours at 16-bit/44.1kHz.
Ethernet connectivity and an internal web browser
Let the PMD580 be the hub of your recording network - it offers a useful ethernet connection that, when paired with its internal browser-style interface, features immediate control over your scheduled recordings, general machine setup, and file transfers. Plus, via its RS232C port, you can remotely control the PMD580 in your rig.
Designed with convenience in mind
With multiple recording and editing features, Marantz kept the user in mind when they designed the PMD580. You can mark and divide files manually while it's recording, or you can predefine increments and have it happen automatically. Another useful auto-feature is its archiving - you can actually have recorded files upload automatically to any network location, so you don't have to take its CompactFlash card anywhere, effectively backing up the day's recordings to the server every day.
