Panasonic HD D5 deck features studio quality HD mastering while providing
non-compressed standard definition recording and playback. Its built-in HD/SD
format converter allows for conversion between numerous formats.
Berman, SoundHound's founder and president, says the studio "chose to make the
investment in permanently adding the D5 deck to our system so we could avoid
the high cost of renting and passing that added expense on to our clients. It's
a very attractive feature for them and demonstrates our commitment to moving
forward as their needs progress."
