    Introducing the new Olympus DS-9500 Professional Dictation System

    The Olympus DS-9500 professional dictation device’s Wi-Fi connectivity allows you share your dictation from anywhere and send your dictation immediately to your transcriptionist without a USB cable, docking station or computer.

    The Intelligent Dual Microphone System controls the directionality of each microphone to actively monitor and analyse the phase difference while recording and suppressing noise from surroundings, enhancing the recorded voice. This keeps the focus on the person dictating and suppresses ambient noise in offices, hospitals, cars, airports and other noisy environments.  This also makes the Olympus DS9500 digital voice recorder the an ideal partner for Dragon Professional and Dragon Legal speech recognition systems.

    For conference recording, the system controls the directionally of the two microphones into a 90° layout to accurately capture all presenters in conference rooms.

    A triple-layer, studio-quality pop filter ensures accurate voice capture while reducing unwanted sounds such as breath and wind vibrations, for superior accuracy that enhances workflow efficiency.

    The Olympus DS-9500’s rugged 1.5 meter shockproof, alcohol-wipe resistant body is designed to be a strong, dependable workhorse in heavy use environments. A durable optical slide switch reduces risk of mechanical failure.

    Complete with reliable security featureslike 256-bit file encryption with DSS Pro audio codec and device pin lock, the DS-9500 provides trusted security to your most sensitive information and meets standards set by governments worldwide for securing data.

    Olympus Dictation Management System Release 7 (ODMS R7) Software

    Included with the Olympus DS-9500 Professional Dictation Kit is the Olympus Dictation Management System Release 7 software (ODMS R7), is the virtual coordinator at the heart of the Olympus Dictation Solution. The ODMS R7 suite has been designed to

    provide an intuitive and user-friendly experience capable of handling new efficient workflows in a scalable solution that meets the needs of offices small and large. 

    The new Start-up Wizard provides quick and easy configuration through the setup of the Wi-Fi feature of the DS-9500 facilitating real-time dictation file sharing via network server, FTP or email, and quick set up of web-based email clients such asGmail and Microsoft Office 365. The flexible workflow of ODMS R7 allows automation in both on-site and off-site environments including file routing and workflow rules for efficient delivery within your business to predetermined destinations via network server, e-mail or FTP using either Wi-Fi, LAN or a USB connection. Transcribed documents are returned with ease to the original authors.

    Full compatibility with Nuance’s Dragon® speech recognition software makes it possible to use background and real-time speech recognition, further decreasing transcription time.

    The security features of the DS-9500 have been incorporated into ODMS R7 to ensure only authorized listeners can access shared information. Customisable backup features allow trusted storage of your files and protection against accidental data loss.

    Olympus = A complete professional dictation / transcription solution

    The Olympus DS-9500 give you everything you need for professional dictation.  Partner with the latest professional transcription - the Olympus AS-9000 - and you have a complete end-to-end dictation & transcription solution.


    Enhanced Speech Recognition Accuracy by Intelligent Dual Microphone System

    The new DS-9500 incorporates low noise omni-directional microphones and Shock Resistant Mounting which reduces touch noise from your hand. The Triple-Layer Pop-Filter blocks the wind noise when talking into the microphones. Speech recognition accuracy is dependent on the signal-to-noise ratio of the recording, which means achieving clearer voice and lower noise are the two key factors. The Beam Forming function works to suppress noise from surroundings, enhancing the voice. Strong directionality is achieved through the Intelligent Dual Microphone System which actively monitors and analyses the phase difference while recording. Users can choose three different modes, Dictation for Quiet Environment, Dictation for Noisy Environment and Conference Recording mode.

    Efficient Workflow with Wi-Fi

    Share your dictation anytime, anywhere. Thanks to the Wi-Fi connectivity, Authors no longer need to carry a PC to download the dictations to the ODMS workflow since you can send the dictations via Wi-Fi at any time. Files can be transferred directly to your local/ network folder, or in case you want to send your dictations outside of the usual workflow, the e-mail function can be used. Files sent to a folder managed under ODMS can receive the transcription status back on the device in a timely manner, allowing the Authors to follow up accordingly. For Administrators, device configuration can be deployed wirelessly from the ODMS System Configuration Program.

    Enhanced Security

    The DS-9500 256-bit AES encryption system protects data from illegal access. This is supported when recording in the DSS pro format. This encryption standard meets high security standards set by governments worldwide. In addition to securing the data, the DS-9500 device lock feature protects the device from unauthorized access by utilizing a 4 digit PIN code.

    Full Workflow Integration

    Packaged with next-generation Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) software and compatible with Nuance Dragon speech recognition software, the DS-9500 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.

    Endless Flexibility

    A vast array of functions and accessories, audio codecs and indexing options, as well as support for multiple work types and users, makes the DS-9500 customisable enough to suit any purpose, in any IT environment. The ODMS software is compatible with Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, or for Mac users the supplied DSS Player for Mac application is compatible with OS X 10.10-10.13.

    Intuitive Controls

    Since the slide switch is the most used part of the device, it is essential to offer a durable and reliable switch in order to support our customers in a professional environment. The optical switch simplifies the structure of the component to reduce the potential risk of defect, yet offering excellent usability at the same time.

    Impact & Alcohol Wipe Resistant Body

    The body is designed to withstand external shock to make sure it supports day-to-day work in a professional environment. The device can resist damage from a drop of 1.5m high. In addition, thanks to the alcohol resistance finish, the device can be wiped with alcohol based cleaners or the like.
