Mobile Audio Recording Format or MARF is Zaxcom’s lossless fault tolerant recording system. MARF is a very robust recording system where the recorded digital files don’t need to be closed or finalized. So if power is lost during recording, all audio right up to the point where power is lost, will be preserved. MARF’s robustness lends itself often be immune from viruses and corruption that can affect standard recording formats.
All Zaxcom MARF files can be quickly and easily converted to both industry standard BWF and MP3 file by using the ZaxConvert utility. All timecode information and Meta Data is preserved and carried over when using ZaxConvert.
