Make Your Smartphone Smarter: Use it to Control the Olympus® Dm-901 Recorder Remotely to Capture Superior Audio Near or Far


New Wi-Fi® Capability and Smartphone App Increase Mobility; Improved Interface and Visual Indexing Enhance Usability

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – The Olympus DM-901 audio recorder unites premium sound quality with new mobile features for easy note-taking in any situation. For the first time on an Olympus recorder, Wi-Fi links the DM-901 to a user’s smartphone, from which an available app can remotely trigger the DM-901 to record on command. This feature is ideal for capturing events when there is a significant distance between the user and the speaker – forget about sitting in the front row of a crowded hall when the DM-901 can be placed close to the audio source there, and the user can start and stop recording on it from the back row.

The Olympus Audio Controller Smartphone app also features a new Visual Index tool that makes searching and managing recordings easier. Using a smartphone, apply available icons or even images taken with the phone and link them to specific parts of the DM-901’s sound file’s timeline. Recorded files can also be easily stored online in Dropbox by uploading them via a Smartphone.  Users who share folders can access the files anytime from any device with the app.

The recorder’s high-definition 2.0-inch color LCD provides greater resolution and contrast than a black-and-white display. An improved button layout features Scene Select, so users can make fail-proof, high-quality recordings at a moment’s notice by presetting the optimum recording settings.

The DM-901 supports three high-quality recording formats: linear PCM, MP3 and WMA. The Zoom microphone mode enhances long-distance recording by allowing the user to focus in a specific direction and adjust the recording level higher.  The DM-901 can read out the names of menu items on the screen using the Voice Guidance feature which adds convenience and enhanced usability. An array of playback functions provide efficiency and precision while cutting down replay time and clarifying speech for easier transcription. Voice Playback eliminates parts of the recording where no noise was picked up by playing back only when there is sound. Voice Balancer adapts to soft and loud voices, often picked up during meetings in large rooms, and adjusts the volume levels of all speakers for consistency. Noise-Cancellation cuts out ambient noise and enables clearer playback.

The DM-901 has a built-in 4GB memory for storage of multiple recordings, up to  850 hours, and its memory can be expanded up to 64GB via a removable SD/SDHC card (not included), simplifying the transfer of files from the recorder. The DM-901 offers an impressive 29 hours of battery life.
