Olympus announced in the US three new Directrec dictation devices, the DR-1200, DR-2200 and DR-2300, offering “the perfect combination of great audio reproduction, programmability and ease-of-use in a professional recorder”. For easy dictating, the DR-2200 and DR-2300 feature strategically placed slide switch and the DR-1200 comes with a push button. They feature a durable trackball for more intuitive, one-handed operation, and a new low-noise directional microphone that reduces extraneous sounds and unwanted background noise for high-quality sound recording.
Olympus’ new ergonomic recorders come with built-in speaker for acoustic playback, a triple-color LED screen current recording status and a new trackball allows users to navigate freely on the PC or Mac without having to utilize the computer’s mouse. The DR-2300 includes also an interface to barcode module.
The Olympus Directrec DR-1200, DR-2200 and DR-2300 will be available in August.
