Highest Quality Recording
Directional Stereo Microphones And A 90-Degree Angle Structure Captures Sound Just As If You Were There
By positioning the two low-noise directional stereo microphones in a 90 degree layout, the WS series can record with superb stereo quality, taking into account the recording location, whether it is a meeting room or large conference center.
CD Quality Recording (PCM)
The PCM recording format provides quality on par with CD recording. You can create the highest quality recordings with a bit rate of 16 bits and sampling frequency of 44.1kHz.
A Dragon NaturallySpeaking “6 Dragon” Rating
The WS-822 was awarded six Dragons, the highest recognition rating when using Dragon NaturallySpeaking software from Nuance Communications, Inc. Dragon automatically turns your talk into text and can make virtually any computer task easier and faster. For more information, visit Nuance's website.
An Impressive Array Of Playback Functions
Write Meeting Minutes Efficiently With Voice Playback
By using the Voice Playback function, the recorder skips the non-voice, dead air parts of the recording and only plays back parts where there is sound. For example, if 70% of the recording is conversation, a one-hour recording can be shortened to approximately 40 minutes. This allows more efficient transcription of your recordings.
Transcription mode is one of the playback scene modes which helps users during transcription by eliminating dead air during playback.
The Improved Voice Balancer
When recording meetings in large rooms, the recording levels of each sound tend to vary due to different distances and positional relationships with respect to sound sources. Even in these cases, the Voice Balancer function adjusts the volume levels of all speakers to a certain level so that it is more clear to hear on playback.
Background noise which may have been captured during recording is powerfully reduced with the world's highest level of noise cancellation technology.
