Deva24 is not out yet but a non-working prototype was shown at NAB. Everyone was able to see and hold the recorder, see and get a feeling for the screen display (smaller than Deva but larger than Nomad), look at the feature of removable faceplate, etc. No one has used it (no built units are in anybody's hands yet) but there have been lots of comments already based on the unit on display at NAB and discussions of features and functions, etc. There are several videos that were done around the time of NAB that feature the new products from Zaxcom.

  I guess I've been asleep, this looks badass!  You don't need a computer and you get the touch screen.  Sounds brilliant, can't wait for more info!  Like the price...

And still no actual release yet. This must be one of the longest product announcements ever. 

 

To be honest, I feel kind of sorry for Zax. I‘m sure they hit a snag somewhere that messed up their best laid plans. 

I guess they really do go aft agley

We have been shipping Deva24 for the last 2 Months in our "Soft Release program".  There will be official news soon. Feedback from our early adaptors has been excellent.

What about integrated Zaxnet on Deva 24?
Do we expect FCC to approve, any idea when?

Can customers outside USA have Zaxnet on Deva 24?

How is it retro-fitted? What's involved? Where does it fit? Is there a space for it? Has it been tested with Deva 24?

etc. etc.

At least there is an antenna connector already in place

Yes Zaxnet antenna in place, however further information would be nice if possible, it's quite a disincentive for me to upgrade from Nomad 12 to Deva 24 if it has no integrated Zaxnet and I'm in Europe where the FCC does not apply?

There are many things I'd like upgrading from Nomad12 to Deva 24, increased capability (no more awkward juggling of Nomad modes), integrated SSD, triple media, touchscreen (a big plus), detachable front panel (another big plus), no increase in size and weight from Nomad 12 with FP8, but I'd really miss integrated Zaxnet as I use it all the time, and have invested in ERX's, like to remote control my TX's, and send timecode & guide track to small second cameras etc. etc.

For now the connection to the IFB100/200 will be the Zaxnet transmission source just like the older Devas.  No other info is available at this time.

So just to confirm no Internal Zaxnet TX on the Deva 24?

The limit of 48kHz as sampling rate strikes me as a bit odd. A machine of this magnitude surely should be able to sample at up to 96k at least? 

 

Also, the TC implementation seems to be really weak: stated accuracy is one frame out in 6 hours. That’s pretty lame and really requires an external TC box to be connected to the Deva at all times. 

 

Neither of those should be dealbreakers, but they did surprise me. 

Still an awesome machine
