Built in low noise directional microphone

to minimize undesired background noises

  • Mesh Grille Top Net

  • Wind Screen

  • Shock absorber

High-quality microphone system

All RecMic devices are equipped with a low-noise directional microphone that has been meticulously engineered to deliver the highest possible audio quality for dictation and voice recognition. It reduces undesired background noises with high signal-to-noise ratio, and adopts a windscreen to reduce breath noise and shock absorbers to reduce friction noise during operation - thus guaranteeing ultra-clear dictation recordings.

Reliable slide switch

In line with the overall ergonomic design of RecMic devices envisaged for comfortable one-handed operation over prolonged periods of time, the dedicated slide switch* has a durable rubber roller mechanism for smooth operation using just one thumb. As well as being reliable and intuitive to use, it also reduces the risk of inadvertently pressing buttons, as well as reducing operational noise – for enhanced sound quality.

* Available with DR-2100, DR-2200 and DR-2300 devices

Laser trackball for mouse control

Also highly conducive for one-handed operation and ease of use over long periods, the laser trackball* incorporates a smooth surface, a high-precision laser and large diameter to improve accuracy and deliver consistent PC navigation. It employs a high-molecular-weight polyethylene film that is extremely resistant to abrasion – for optimised lubricity and smooth operability without operational noise that could otherwise detract from recording sound quality.

* Available with DR-1200, DR-2200 and DR-2300 devices

Highly durable USB cable

Since Olympus devices are designed to last, the professional-grade USB cable attached to RecMic recorders is 10 times more durable than normal USB cables. Furthermore, the cable bush embedded inside the devices enhances the tension strength to the highest extent – meaning that replacing products due to a defective USB cable will be a thing of the past. The fixed USB cable connection also prevents devices from being stolen or removed from their designated place.

Programmable buttons for customised workflow

The RecMic series features five buttons – F1 to F4 on the front, and one on the back – that can be freely assigned to various functions to suit a particular preference or recording environment. This tactile control enables one-handed usage without having to look at the device itself – making it make more suitable and comfortable for professional operation than any touchscreen-controlled input device.
The click lock function even allows the user to drag & drop objects or to mark text paragraphs with one hand.

Device Configuration Manager (DCM)

The RecMic series is engineered to work best with Dragon NaturallySpeaking™ speech recognition software – for perfect results that are more accurate than ever. The Device Configuration Manger is a software tool that allows for simple control of third-party applications such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking™. Different events can be assigned to the buttons and slide switch for each respective application. The Set-up Wizard provides the user with invaluable assistance when configuring applications for their daily business.

Barcode Reader (SC1)

For the DR-2300 an external barcode reader is available.

RecMic Administration Center

Olympus has developed the RecMic Administration Center for medium-sized and large organisations, especially designed to centrally manage all installed RecMic devices. The RecMic Administration Panel* gives the administrator the power to manage the settings of RecMic users and user groups, centrally control settings for applications on the client computers, and roll out firmware updates for all devices.

* The latest version of DCM and Repository Service must be installed.
