Zoom created the H2 hand held recorder which housed four internal mics for exceptionally great recording quality.

The Zoom H2 uses a dual X/Y configuration for superior stereo image. What makes this product so unique are the two front mics which can record a 90° arch in the front and a 120° in the rear. Better yet, the built-in 3D panning function gives you complete control over the front, rear, left and right balance.

This type of recorder is ideal for jam sessions with the band, group discussions and conferences.
The H2 gives you amazing versatility with its wide variety of recording formats. Choose 24bit/96kHz linear PCM (WAV files) format for the highest audio quality that surpasses CDs. Or record in MP3 format in an almost any bit rate when long recording capability and smaller file sizes are your goals. Even 4-channel, 360° recordings can be made in 24bit/48kHz format.
In addition, the H2 uses an automated recording function which turns off the recorder if silence is detected. This increases battery life and reduces recording time. The Zoom H2 supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) which is the standard used for broadcasting for time and date stamp information along with cue points or markers for starting and stopping. And if that isn’t enough, the H2 connects via USB whereby the digital recorder turns into the perfect USB podcasting microphone. Priced at $199. Continue Reading

USB Surge Protector is Eco Friendly

So the USB Ecostrip is a kinda like a smart power strip for office peripherals and gadgets. The surge protector was designed to reduce energy waste. This is how it works:

The USB Ecostrip plugs into the wall and the PC is plugged into the socket marked by the red arrow on the diagram. From there all other devices on the power strip are powered via the USB port connected from the surge protector to the PC. This way, when the PC is shut down all other devices are also shut down, such as your printer, scanner, modem and speakers.
“We set out to design a product that reduces energy waste, yet, allows distributors and retailers to profit from the new emphasis on this type of product,” said Bjarne Waedeled, President of Centritech Limited, Hong Kong, designer and producer of the Ecostrip. “And, because it functions like any other power strip, there is no education of the consumer required.”
The USB Ecostrip has been around since 2005 but has yet to make it into the US market. However, that’s all going to change fairly soon. USB Ecostrip Press Release Continue Reading
