DS7000 Digital Voice Recorder by Olympus
Serious professionals need serious machines to do their job. This is why Olympus, a leading manufacturer of professional dictation machines created the impressive DS7000 digital voice recorder, a popular replacement to its predecessor the Discontinued DS5000.
The DS7000 sets a new industry standard in professional dictation equipment. Designed for professionals who rely on secure, flexible, reliable products as integral parts of their office workflow, it features real-time 256-bit file encryption, a redesigned, independently housed microphone, enhanced battery life and next-generation Olympus Dictation Management Systems (ODMS) software.
The DS7000 by Olympus ships with a docking station for offloading and recharging, all the goodies to connect it to your PC or Mac, and the powerful DSS Player Pro software to automate offloading and sending of your audio files.
Device password protection and DSS Pro real-time 128- or 256-bit file encryption makes the DS7000 ideal for workplace environments that deal with sensitive information.
Full Workflow Integration
Packaged with next-generation Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) software and compatible with Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition software, the DS7000 is designed to become an essential part of any office's dictation workflow directly out of the box. Support for up to 32 index marks per dictation file makes it easy to locate critical information.
Secure for HIPAA/HITECH
This digital voice recorder offers password protection and onboard file encryption to keep your information safe, confidential and secure. This Olympus recorder is one of the first in the industry to be HIPAA-compliant.
A vast array of functions and accessories, audio codes and indexing options, as well as support for multiple worktypes and users, makes this recorder customizable enough to suit any purpose in any IT environment. The ODMS software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista and XP and Mac OS X.
Full Dictation Control
Professionals love the 4-position slide switch but also the DS7000's advanced dictation functions like append, insert, overwrite and partial delete. While most lower end recorders don't allow for incremental rewind, this professional model does and it pulls it off in a beautiful, easy to use way. Simply hold down the slide switch in the rewind position and the LCD will show you just where you are in your dictation. Slide back up to insert (or overwrite) directly into your existing dictation file. Marking or unmarking a dictation priority is as simple as touching a button.
Superior Sound Quality
The DS7000's redesigned, speech-optimized microphone is independently housed for flawless sound reproduction. It offers multiple recording modes, as well as two quality levels - QP (16 kHz/28 kbps) and SP (12 kHz/13.7 kbps).
Keeps You Organized
With seven folders, each storing up to 200 files, the DS7000 by Olympus makes organizing audio files easy.
Plugs Right Into Speech Recognition
Do you ever dream of talking to your digital recorder and it turning into text? The Olympus DS7000, when combined with Dragon Naturally Speaking, makes this a dream come true. Dictate your notes with or without natural language commands and simply dock your recorder. Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional, Medical or Legal versions will then import your recording and begin to transcribe it automatically. It works like magic!
Digital Speech Standard (.dss)
The DS7000 by Olympus uses the international standard .dss file format for professional speech processing. With two quality modes to choose from, the .dss file format offers fantastic audio quality for recorded voice and all .dss file formats allow for a high compression rate. This makes the .dss file perfect for internet or network transfers. The .dss Pro format enables real-time file encryption for security and peace of mind. Both formats allow demographic data to be included with the audio, like Author ID. This recorder is also fully compatible with GearPlayer transcription software.
Work on a Mac or Windows, the Choice is Yours.
The DS7000 is compatible with Windows 2000 (SP4) XP (SP2, 32bit & 64 bit), Vista (32 and 64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), Windows 8 along with Macintosh 10.3.9 through 10.6.x.
Hands Free Dictation is a Snap.
With two sensitivity modes, the DS7000 functions well in both Dictate and Conference recording modes. The Voice Activation feature makes it easy to cut out long pauses or delays in your dictation notes, helping to streamline transcription.
With the available RS31H foot pedal, you can have full, hands free control of the DS7000. Simply plug the foot pedal into the back of the docking station, dock your recorder and get started. It really is that easy.

Quality Price Value
We had to upgrade from our older DS5000 units and with the help of the dedicated sales team, we were easily able to upgrade to the DS7000. The new ODMS software that we received was very easy to install and was very similar to what we were used to using. We love the new equipment!!! (Posted on 6/6/2014)
