What is NFC?

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a technology that enables short-range wireless communications between various devices, including mobile telephones and IC tags. You can exchange data by simply putting a device onto the designated area on another device.

With an NFC-enabled smartphone, you can simply put it onto the mark on the linear PCM recorder to establish a Bluetooth connection by pairing both devices with the NFC function. You can also disconnect or switch the Bluetooth connection in the same manner.
