Designed to Do More
Perhaps the most innovative aspect of the DS-4000 is its “true slide switch” located below the microphone. It’s contoured to the thumb for smooth control of record, stop, play and review functions all with the same switch. This model is as equally high-powered as it is versatile with the ability to record 11 hours of audio with the included 32MB x D-Picture Card™, the same memory media used in Olympus Digital Cameras (memory expandable with cards of up to 512MB). The dual purpose USB docking station permits fast downloading of voice files and additionally acts as a charger for convenient dictation. The DS-4000 really excels on network environments. Using the DSS Player Pro Software, voice files can be placed on the network immediately and then processed. The name of the author and work group, the priority of a recording and status of the files, are displayed in an overview, ensuring secure and uncomplicated access to the correct file. This way, information can be quickly and simply retrieved, processed and archived.

With the DS-4000 placed in the USB docking station, will enable quick downloading or uploading of voice files to and from the computer. The DS-4000 is also capable of recording direct to a personal computer without taking up any of the recorder’s internal memory.
The DS-4000 features a large, backlit, easy-to-read LCD screen that reveals file information, recording time and events on the front of the recorder and has a speaker for audio playback on the back. The included user-friendly DSS Player Pro Release 4 software facilitates the archiving, editing and further processing of the recordings within seven folders, up to 199 per folder.
Two programmable buttons increase the DS-4000’s flexibility and reliability. Instead of having more buttons than necessary, the DS-4000 allows users to program the functions they use the most.
The DS-4000 can be operated in hands-free mode with the optional RS-26 foot switch. This helps professionals like radiologists and pathologists, who need to keep their hands free while dictating.
