Priority settings
The built-in microphones deliver superior stereo
audio recordings. The crystal clear recordings are
perfectly suitable for speech recognition.
The SpeechExec Dictate software organizes the
workflow of dictation files and resulting documents
between author and transcriptionist, and allows you
to monitor the status of your work.
With the included priority setting option, urgent
recordings can be processed first. This makes
sure important recordings are not overseen and
helps you and your transcriptionists manage your
workloads better.
Professional recording control
Large color display
DSS and MP3 recording
The recorder is designed for single-handed
operation of all recording and playback functions,
allowing easy and quick file editing (insert,
overwrite, append) via convenient push-button
The large full-color display offers sharp images,
making it easier to see everything at first glance.
The clear user interface is optimized for easy,
intuitive operation.
Robust and ergonomic design
Extended battery life
The DSS format was developed for the use in digital
voice recorders, achieving a high compression ratio
with little loss of quality. The DSS format also
allows you to store additional information in the
file header, which facilitates the organization and
the transcription of dictation files. The MP3 format
is the common audio format for consumer audio
storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for
the transfer and playback on digital audio players.
Optional docking station
The asymmetrical and ergonomic shape fits
perfectly into your hand. Its slim and lightweight
design maximizes comfort, even when working over
longer periods of time. The stainless steel creates
a robust and highly durable protective shell around
the device.
The high-capacity Li-ion battery can be easily
charged through a standard micro USB jack. The
integrated light sensor guarantees extended battery
life, up to 50% longer than competition. The smart
technology adjusts the brightness of the display,
ensuring that your recorder will always be ready to
work when you are.
The stable and practical docking station provides
speedy charging and automatic transfer of your
recordings to your computer. With the optional
foot pedal connected, the docking station even
enables hands-free recording and transcription
without a computer.
