HHB PORTADRIVE OFFER DELIVERS COMPLETE WORKFLOW PACKAGE AT NO EXTRA COST

September 30, 2005

With increasing numbers of sound mixers turning to the commercial advantages that session-based, non-linear disk recording provides, the HHB PORTADRIVE is now the indispensable audio acquisition tool on film and TV locations across the world.

For a period strictly limited from August 15th to November 30th 2005, all PORTADRIVEs ship with a free Workflow Package comprising of a PDRDSUF FireWire/USB Docking Station and a PDRDVDBU multi-format DVD-R/CD-R Back Up Drive, in addition to the standard accessories. This remarkable package provides a complete systems solution containing everything required to record, back-up and deliver post-ready audio.

Speaking on behalf of HHB, Managing Director Ian Jones comments, “I believe we have now reached and passed a defining moment in the changing face of location audio acquisition. We’re delighted that so many sound mixers making the transition to disk-based recording are choosing to do so with PORTADRIVE. Now the enhanced features of the new V2.0 operating software combined with the Workflow Package deal makes it even easier for those still using DAT to make the move.”

Users particularly value the logical and ideal workflow PORTADRIVE presents from audio capture right through to rushes and post. With native and comprehensive support for AES31-3 ADL and Pro Tools V5 formats, files recorded on PORTADRIVE transfer instantly to PC and Mac DAWs, saving time and money.

As the natural and obvious successor to timecode DAT, PORTADRIVE has won many followers. Typical of these is busy, Vancouver-based sound mixer Brent Marchenski. A long standing user of the HHB PORTADAT, Brent upgraded to PORTADRIVE to handle a succession of increasingly demanding film and TV projects. “Over 14 days on one TV show, I acquired 350GB of audio which was then imported directly into AVID as a seamless process – extremely exciting,” he enthuses. “In another case, we estimated that PORTADRIVE saved us $20,000 (Canadian) in transfer time. The quality of the recording is amazing, it’s rock-solid in the field and as a tool, PORTADRIVE is completely intuitive. Everyone – especially my clients – is ecstatic with it!”
