Definition - What does Solid State Recorder (SSR) mean?
A solid state recorder (SSR) is a recording device that uses solid state technology to store recorded audio data. SSRs record and store data in a digital format, allowing for simultaneous playback and recording with most devices.
SSRs and traditional audio recorders (such as reel-to-reel) differ in terms of how data is stored and accessed, as SSR data is digitally stored in memory chips. SSRs are usually integrated with a solid state storage mechanism like CompactFlash (CF) or Microdrive (MD).
Key SSR features are as follows:
Provides faster speeds for data saving and retrieval
