Mini Digital Voice Recorders
The TMC's new fleet of mini digital voice recorders are fantastic for any language project or language learning activity. Record conversations, meetings, and even brainstorming sessions with ease. These recorders have hours and hours of space, so just hit record, let it run, and forget about it. Once the job is done, you can easily transfer the recorded file to a computer for tweaking or to save it forever. Having trouble with pronunciation? Record correctly pronounced segments and use the files as a guide. They are small and sleek; great for on the go.
This portable stereo plays CDs as well as tapes, and of course you can pick up your favorite radio station. They are great in classrooms for music or model dialogues. Furthermore, they are small and can be carried around if you have six C batteries.
We have quite a collection of digital cameras, ranging from still shots to camcorders. We have two still shot digital cameras and five HD digital camcorders (with capability of still shot). In addition, we have a number of tripods for a still, professional look to your videos/pictures. Once the footage is complete, file transfer is quick and easy to our PCs or Macintosh computers. There you can edit, add effects, soundtracks, text, and the like to your video project. As a final touch, we can burn your finished project onto a DVD compatible with any DVD player. TMC Assistants are qualified to help you with every step of the way.
NOTE: Cameras cannot be checked out overnight. Cameras that are not returned after the 12 hour time limit will incur a late fee of $10/hour.
