New Releases - Olympus America, Inc.

The DW-90 digital voice recorder from Olympus America, Inc. is ideal for students who need a compact recorder that provides 90 minutes of recording time and can be connected to a PC via a high-speed USB interface. The recorder's built-in unidirectional/telescoping microphone is perfect for students at lectures because it allows the user to point the mike directly toward the speaker for a clearer recording without background noise. The user can then easily e-mail the lecture or interview as a WAV file attachment to others, or listen and save the recording on a PC.

The DW-90 provides three folders for voice file management, capable of storing up to 100 messages per folder. Three recording modes also allow a choice in the quality and length of recording. An LCD display checks remaining recording time, date and time, voice activation mode, play mode and battery status. A microphone Sensitivity Selector and voice activation for hands-free use are also included. In addition, the recorder can be used as a tool to add audio to a Web site. Olympus America, Inc., Melville, N.Y., (800) 347-4027,
