When the distance is extreme or using a wireless microphone is not practical, the Lectrosonics MTCR Miniature Time Code Recorder can travel with your subject and capture professional quality audio, synchronized with time code. It's tiny size is unobtrusive and easily placed in garments and costumes, and easy to conceal when used as a "plant" microphone to capture environmental or location sound.

With a time code sync at the start of the production, the audio track is easily placed accurately in the timeline of a video clip. The industry standard .wav (BWF) file format is compatible with essentially any audio or video editing software.

The recorder can also be tethered to a camera to capture a higher quality or backup audio recording. The input connector is the industry standard TA5M jack that accepts any mic or line level signal and provides bias voltage to power a wide variety of electret lavaliere microphones. The input/jack panel works with microphones wired for Lectrosonics wireless transmitters with TA5F connectors. The microSDHC memory card slot is covered by a flexible "flap" style cover. A standard 3.5 mm TRS jack provides audio output for headphones. A 5-pin LEMO connector is used to synchronize ("jam") time code for video and film production.

Setup and adjustment is made through an intuitive interface provided by the keypad and LCD. In keeping with typical Lectrosonics mechanical designs, the housing is machined from a solid aluminum billet for the ruggedness needed in field production.
