The Flashlog 5 digital logger provides continuous recording of many weeks or months of audio programme, using high capacity computer hard disks as the recording medium.

Windows Media 9 audio compression is used to provide near-CD quality recording for the entire logging period. A playback mode having mono programme on one channel and date and time announcements on the other can also be selected.

Flashlog 5 is based on an Intel Pentium processor using the Microsoft Windows XP Professional operating system. An internal RAID 5 controller combines up to four standard IDE hard disks in a redundant array, with alarms to indicate hard disk failure.

Each Flashlog 5 unit is housed in a rugged 4-unit case with high efficiency cooling. An easy-to-use LCD dispaly and pushbuttons provide local playback control

With every Flashlog 5 we supply Flashback 5 which can access the logger over a network connection. The new Flashback includes a graphical waveform display to make audio selection easy. Log extracts can be copied to the Windows clipboard or saved as WAV or WMA files. Date and time calls can also be included in the extracted audio.

The Flashlog 5 (with Flashback) is a product that is dominating the Austarlian Radio Broadcasting market and is now being successfully exported overseas.

However, the Flashlog 5 is not only used as logging device, it has also become a valued tool for production, sales, marketing and management departments to access broadcasted material with ease. A lot of talkback stations have also replaced their reel to reels with a Flashlog 5.

***In response to customer requests, we’ve now added an optional watchdog alarm to the Flashlog 5. The alarm will activate a contact closure in the event of a power failure, software failure or audio input failure. The audio input alarms can be selectively enabled on each channel, and the timeout period can be set to meet your requirements. The alarm uses a PCI watchdog card and can be back-fitted to existing Flashlog 5 machines. Please feel free to contact either your Innes Corporation products distributor or our sales department for further information.***
