360° Sound Pickup for Optimal Recording
Thanks to four included meeting microphones, you can use this recorder for 360° sound pickup, which ensures a quality recording experience during meetings and other multi-person, larger room situations.
High Recording Quality in DSS & MP3 Formats
The DSS format was developed for use in digital voice recorders, allowing a high compression ratio with little loss of quality. The DSS format also allows you to store additional information in the file header, which facilitates the organization and the transcription of dictation files. The MP3 format is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.
Extendable Solution for Increased Recording Range
Easily extend the recording range of your Pocket Memo meeting recorder by simply connecting up to six meeting microphones.
Innovative Meeting Microphones Enhance Recording Quality
The innovative boundary layer design of the four included meeting microphones uses the sound pressure of the table to provide excellent sound and recording quality with a 360° sound pickup radius. The meeting mics feature electret condenser mic capsules that have an impedance of 2.2 kOhms at 1kHz, a sensitivity level of -38dBV, and a frequency response range of 30 to 18,000Hz. They use a 1.5 to 5V / 0.5mA phantom power supply voltage and weigh only 0.24 lb (0.11kg). They have a stereo mini-jack audio plug with a 6.5' (2m) cable and a stereo mini-jack connector for cascading multiple meeting mics together.
Built-In Wire Storage for Adjusting Cable Length
The built-in wire storage in the 360° meeting microphones allows you to adjust the length of the cable to perfectly suit your needs, making sure your desk always looks tidy and professional.
SpeechExec Workflow Software for Efficient Data Management
The included SpeechExec software organizes the workflow of dictation files and resulting documents between author and transcriptionist, and it allows you to monitor the status of your work.
