The Zaxcom ZFR100 is a timecode referenced audio recorder. The belt-pack style ZFR100 can be used in a sound bag, as a body worn recorder, or any other application that requires a high quality timecode stamped audio recording.

The STA-150 and STA-042 stereo adapters can be attached to the ZFR100. This sets it apart from the ZFR200 and ZFR300. The STA adaptors allow the ZFR100 to record a two analog or two digital line level signals, as well as giving you the option to externally power the ZFR100 from any DC source.


Fault tolerant recording Removable miniSD media Built-in time code reader / generator Small size & rugged design The ZFR100 features a fault tolerant recording system. If a memory card is ejected or accidentally turned off while recording there will be no audio loss prior to the point of interruption. The ZFR100 records on removable miniSD Flash media. Both record / stop and continuous loop recording is supported. The ZFR100 boasts a full-featured time code reader / generator with accuracy of 1 frame every 12 hours. The ZFR100 can auto-detect the time code frame rate when jammed.

The ZFR100 operates using a single mic level unbalanced input with powering for lavaliere microphones. File transfer software that runs on both MAC and PC operating systems is included with the ZFR100. On the ZFR100 audio files are automatically recorded at 48 kHz / 24 bits. The transfer software utilizes sample rate conversion to obtain the sample rate and bit depth of choice when files are imported to your computer. There are two time code stamped file types to choose from: BWF (Broadcast Wave file) or MP3 file. MP3’s are smaller files for transmission over the internet to a transcription house.
