OLYMPUS® PROFESSIONAL DICTATION ENHANCES THEIR REVOLUTIONARY VOICE SYSTEMS WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW RECMIC SERIES

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., OCTOBER 8, 2013 – Olympus, the world’s market leader for professional dictation devices, portable digital voice recorders, and Linear PCM music recorders, expands their revolutionary voice systems with the launch of its RecMic series of USB Microphones, ideally suited for healthcare professionals who require real-time desktop dictation.

The newly released and ergonomically designed Olympus RecMic DR-1200, DR-2200 and DR-2300 provide users with the ability to empower their voice allowing them to be more productive, efficient and streamlined. With a strategically placed slide switch (Olympus DR-2200 and DR-2300) and push button (Olympus DR-1200) for easy, one-handed navigation and access to commonly used functions; a highly sensitive, cutting-edge USB microphone that blocks unwanted background noises, ensuring ultra-clear dictation recordings; and a 16mm trackball that functions as a computer mouse to facilitate manipulation of data, the RecMics offer a complete source solution.

Healthcare professionals may be particularly interested in the barcode scanner-compatible Olympus DR-2300, which enables automatic transmission of voice files to electronic health records and allows for additional security of sensitive information.

Each RecMic model can be integrated seamlessly into existing workflows, providing years of reliable service, increased productivity, money-saving efficiencies and improved information security. Features of the RecMic series include:

  • Real-time recording and seamless transcription when using voice recognition software.
  • Full integration with existing software, applications and workflows.
  • Intuitive, programmable controls and function buttons.
  • Unique user IDs for maximum information security.
  • Professional microphones to guarantee ultra-clear voice data entry.

RecMic devices come equipped with the RecMic Administration Panel (RAP), which serves as the central management tool of each RecMic and seamlessly integrates workflow between the administrator and user. The improved Device Configuration Manager (DCM) allows for a number of setting preferences, including two installation modes (Workgroup or Stand-alone); Startup Wizard (for easy setup and configuration); text editor type set up; Dragon NaturallySpeaking functions; additional mouse settings, including a new click-lock function that makes drag and dropping a lot easier and more. The new RecMic series ensure voice productivity is always at your fingertips.

All Olympus Professional Dictation products can be integrated into any hospital or medical practice to streamline data sharing among physicians, medical office administrators and IT staff. Data can also be shared among departments and different locations in real time for complete end-to-end, secure patient care.
All three devices have earned the highest “Nuance Certified” designation, receiving six dragon rating due to their world-renowned microphones, which provide seamless compatibility with Dragon NaturallySpeaking software.
