Product Description

The Nagra VI is a 6-channel portable digital recorder that embodies a new concept for Nagra in that its hardware is software dependent and can be adapted simply through software revisions. Available in a choice of three colors (“Slate” grey, “Midnight” blue and “Burgundy” red) allowing owners of two or more recorders easily identify a particular unit. The NAGRA VI is supplied with two stout plastic “handles” which serve to protect the front of the unit from accidental damage, but can also be used to carry the recorder. A carrying case and shoulder strap are also supplied for over-the-shoulder operation. Included features are SMPTE/ EBU Time Code, Internal 2.5″ hard drive disk, removable Compact Flash, BWF/ iXML files, 24 bit 96kHz, USB 2.0, internal speaker and large color display.

The NAGRA VI is shipped with a removable battery box containing a lithium-ion battery pack, a mains power supply and is equipped with a 120GB internal hard disk.
The supplied metal supporting “legs” can be easily attached to the case screws to elevate the front of the recorder when used on a table top. They can be fitted with or without the carying case which is also supplied with the standard NAGRA VI package. This gives a more comfortable viewing angle of the colour TFT display when used on a table top or sound cart.
