Professional solutions enhance office workflow
Olympus DS-2800 Digital Voice Recorder


The Olympus DS-2800 digital dictation device makes organised and efficient dictation quick and easy for professionals working in small and medium-sized businesses. Olympus’ latest model scores with innovative features, including the practical, fast-access side switch that has proved so popular on the DS-5000. User-friendly controls, sleek metal design and ample capacity give business people everything they need to record over 100 hours of dictation: interviews, meetings, or personal notes. There’s space for up to 200 files in each of the five folders and a 2GB SD card included for the SDHC slot. Recordings are saved in the excellent DSS Pro format and users can select QP recording mode for even better results with voice recognition. Together with the new slide switch, a large backlit LCD makes it easy to operate and navigate intuitive menus available in six languages. For fast and smooth integration in office workflow, files can be downloaded to a PC or Mac via Hi-Speed USB and processed using the supplied DSS Player Standard software.
