NHK has installed numerous TASCAM products, including HS-4000 and CD-9010CF in its stations throughout Japan. This example is from a studio in the NHK Broadcasting Center in Shibuya.

The HS-4000 units have been installed as replacements for multiple magnetic-optical drive (MO) and DAT players/recorders. The CD-9010CF units have been installed as replacements for the previous Broadcast CD players.

NHK uses the HS-4000 units connected to a local area network (LAN). In addition to the HS-4000 units themselves, they have also installed a TASCAM IF-D4000VN unit for VGA display connected by VNC. An external display is connected to the IF-D4000VN and used to show in one place the contents of four HS-4000 displays. Two are utilized for recording and two for playback.

The HS-4000 units that are used for playback each have one RC-HS32PD unit connected as a flash-starting controller. The RC-HS32PD controllers are installed in custom racks.

Each CD-9010CF unit has a connected RC-9010 that is equipped with an AK-A9010 armrest. Together these are mounted on AK-S9010 stands designed specifically for this combination of units.
