The ZFR200 is an ultra-compact and
lightweight timecode referenced audio recorder.
The ZFR200 records on microSD cards and has a built-in SMPTE timecode reader /
generator. The unit can receive timecode via a manual jam, the IFB100 or the
ZaxNet 2.4 GHz wireless network.
It's a great replacement for wireless mics on reality television type
productions where there is poor RF range, interference issues, or no availabe
frequencies are present. With a timecode jam any quantity of ZFR200's can be
used in sync all day, the built-in timecode generator is accurate within one
frame over a six hour period. The unit is powered with a single AA battery. It
can run up to 14 hours using lithium or rechargeable batteries or up to seven
hours using alkaline batteries.
Weighing in at just 3.1oz, the ZFR200 is constructed out of a high strength
nylon polymer case making it resistant to water and corrosion.
Files can be output as either 24 bit / 48 KHz timecode stamped broadcast wave
files or timecode stamped MP3's.

The ZFR200 features a fault
tolerant recording system. If a memory card is ejected or accidentally turned
off while recording, there will be no audio loss prior to the point of
Both record / stop and continuous
loop recording are supported.
File transfer software, that runs
on both MAC and PC operating systems, is included with the ZFR200. ZFR200
audio files are automatically recorded at 48 kHz / 24 bits. The transfer
software utilizes sample rate conversion to obtain the sample rate and bit
depth of choice when files are imported to your computer. Any number of
versions of the same recording can be made from a single file.
There are two timecode stamped
file types to choose from: BWF (Broadcast Wave Format) or MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio
Layer 3). MP3 files are great for fast transmission over the internet to a
