Olympus DM-4 and DM-2 Digital Audio Devices
Olympus unveils two new DM series digital audio devices with large color LCDs and easy-to-navigate menus for audio recording, editing and playback of podcasts, music, audio books and textbooks. The DM-4 and DM-2 deliver internal memory storage capacity of 8 gigabytes and 4 gigabytes, respectively, as well as external microSD compatibility. The DM-4 also offers voice recognition so users can verbally navigate menus with voice commands and set the time and date, as well as create a schedule using only their voice.
“These new DM recorders are the perfect tools for students and professionals to capture audio files and keep them organized,” said Amy Leslie, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc. “The devices also are ideal for personal time when playing music, podcasts and audio books.
