Olympus aims voice, MP3 device at business users

The DM-1 can store up to 22 hours of recorded voice, or more than one hour of music in the MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio) formats, Olympus said in a statement. The files are stored on a 64MB SmartMedia card which is included in the unit's price tag of $US349. The card can be upgraded to 128MB for an additional charge, the company said.

The MP3 player has a built in audio signal processor from SRS Labs and features a five-setting equaliser. The player also includes MusicMatch jukebox software, Olympus said. In addition to the SmartMedia port, the player also includes a USB (universal serial bus) interface for connecting to a PC.

The voice recorder allows users to store up to 199 voice messages in each of three folders, to help keep them organised. Olympus uses the .DSS (Digital Speech Standard) format to store files, which are 12 to 20 times smaller than standard .WAV files, the company said.

The DM-1 will be available this month, the company said. As well as the 64MB SmartMedia card, the price tag of $US349 includes the DSS player software, MusicMatch software, a USB cable, a carrying case, a belt clip and headphones, Olympus said.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
