Voice-Trek is a registered trademark of Olympus Optical Co., Ltd. in Japan.
Olympus Optical Co., Ltd. is pleased to introduce the Voice-Trek V-90 IC recorder. Ultracompact, ultralight and ultrathin, it is designed for both style and performance. The versatile functions include Long Playback (LP) Mode recording lasting up to 90 min. and a convenient Audio Scheduler.
The Indispensable Personal Accessory
The V-90 offers a number of advantages for personal recording. It can hold up to 297 messages lasting 90 min., while the Variable Control Voice Actuator (VCVA) and Fast Playback make operation easy and efficient. There is also the convenience of Time/Date Stamp, Audio Scheduler and Alarm Playback functions.
With distinctive good looks unusual among IC recorders, the ergonomic lines make a statement about style as well as simplify handling. The ultralight design weighs only 45 g with a battery, so it is easy to take along and use as a portable audio scheduler.
The Voice-Trek V-90 will be released in Japan on June 10, 1999, with a suggested retail price of ¥16,000.
Main Features
Trim and Stylish Design
Small and lightweight, the V-90 weighs only 45 g with a battery, and its ultrathin design-which is only 16 mm thick-fits neatly in a shirt pocket. The ergonomic lines not only simplify handling, but define a distinctive look for an IC recorder. With this unobtrusive sophistication, people may even forget they are being recorded.
Recording up to 90 Min.
The V-90 can hold about 33 min. of input in the Standard Playback (SP) Mode and approximately 90 min. in the Long Playback (LP) Mode. With this capacity, there is enough memory to record a business meeting and most other occasions.
Variable Control Voice Actuator (VCVA)
When sound reaches a certain point, the Variable Control Voice Actuator (VCVA) starts recording automatically and stops within approximately 1 sec. after the level falls. Particularly helpful in extended recording, VCVA not only conserves memory and battery life, but makes playback more efficient and convenient. Either High or Low can be selected for the start/stop level.
Convenient Three-Folder Storage
Up to 99 audio files can be stored in each of the A, B and S folders. With this convenient data management, recordings can be classified according to purpose, person or other category. Files in the A and B folders show the time/date of a recording during playback or skipping to the next message. Since the S folder can hold up to 15 files for playback on a particular date, it is especially useful for keeping track of daily tasks and appointments.
Alarm Playback
The Alarm Playback can be used to set a time for Auto Playback of a selected audio file. It also initiates playback of all S folder recordings designated for a particular date. This added convenience makes the V-90 an ideal audio scheduler.
Fast Playback
When the Playback button is held for longer than 1 sec., playback is speeded up to approximately 1.3x the normal rate. This feature is especially helpful when a key passage has to be located right away.
The Voice-Trek Brand
Olympus has been a pioneer in IC recorders since the introduction of the Notecorders 100/200/300 in July 1996. Voice-Trek is the brand name for the Olympus lineup of digital recorders including products generally known as IC recorders or digital recording systems.
