recording to thumb drive
on Jun 5, 2012 at 7:21:31 am

I have a job coming up requiring the recording of presentations of up to 2 hours in length with it being very important the speaker gets a copy of the presentation immedaitely after they are finished.

I am recording SD and considering my options. Has anyone ever recorded directly to a flash (thumb) drive and just handed it over?

Thanks for your time;

Dan

Never done it, but even just the thought of it scares me. I wouldn't rely on it. If it's THAT important, I would rather rely on a known-good method to record the file to hard drive or a faster form of SSD and then spend the time to copy it to the thumb drive. If you are really curious, I would try it a few times with the exact setup you would use and see how it goes. Maybe it will work ok, but I wouldn't assume so without trying it first. Can you record to DVD or tape for them? That could be done in real time.

I think you're right. I'll just stick to recording direct to hard drive. Thanks for your time. Dan

I would bring a DVD recorder to the gig and the guy only needs to wait long enough for the disk to finalize. For a 2-hour DVD, that's usually less than a minute. They take longer to finalize, the less material is on the disk.

Such recorders are under a hundred bucks without a tuner from Walmart, etc.

Sounds like a good idea. TX

Been using one of these:
http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/h264prorecorder/

Component in plus analogue audio in(which works well) or SDI/HDSDI in but you will need a way to embed the audio in before the H264 recorder.

Used them on concerts for the artist to review the show, seem to be solid little boxes.

Does anybody know of a hand held audio recorder that records directly to a thumb drive?
I have a friend who travels training people to manually drill wells in remote places, and he wants to be able to do a training session then hand the people he trained a recording of the session as soon as it's finished.
Thanks for any ideas

No, but many such record to SDHC cards, which are cheap at Walgreens in the smaller sizes... he could record audio to the card and hand the card off. Users can read those into their computers with a $5 reader, some computers already have a reader slot, and for the luddites, the photo kiosk at Walgreens reads these cards and can probably burn them to a CD.

Some have built-in flash memory, and/or stores to SD card. Don't see any that can record direct to an external flash though -

There are 2 pages there, and some should have released new models by now, eg. Olympus LS-11 over the LS-10.
