Olympus W-10 Visual Voice Recorder - camera and voice recorder-in-1
Yesterday we were attending the press conference from Olympus where of course the Four Third system was the hot item of the press conference, but Christopher Seyffert - product manager voice processing products - had another new digital product to show us; the first digital voice recorder combined with a camera. This stylish, somewhat familiar to the old 110-pocket film based cameras, shaped W-10 can simultaneously record sound and take photographs, allowing you to create multi media slide shows for business or pleasure. The Olympus W-10 is practical and easy to use making it ideal for students, creative professionals, business users or simply for families at home. Thanks to a built-in 16 MB flash memory it combines the capacity to store up to 3 hours of audio [in LP mode] with the ability to take a picture whenever necessary. Whether it is during a lecture, at a meeting or a family event, you can snap away while recording the conversation. The audio files are stored in two voice folders (100 messages each) while up to 250 images are saved in the specific image folder.

The sleek and stylish W-10 comes in metallic blue. Weighing a mere 70g and measuring a compact 119.5x 29.5x 19.5mm it slips easily into a pocket or handbag. A jog wheel and easy-to-read visual display allow thumb-pad navigation for straightforward operation. Furthermore, Variable Control Voice Actuator [VCVA] ensures that recording begins only when sound is sensed to maximise use of recording time and conserve battery power. For the quick and easy download of WAV audio and JPEG image files the W-10 digital voice recorder connects to PC's via a high-speed USB interface. The W-10 features versatile "Olympus Voice Album" software to effectively manage voice and images, so aligning sound recordings with the right images is fast and simple. Users have two choices: they can either capture a VGA image and then attach its corresponding voice file using "Visual Indexes" that pop up during playback or they can add a WAV digital audio recording to the appropriate image for easy reference to create an "audio photo album".

Highly flexible, the W-10 lets users attach images to recordings to better describe them, or add narration to images for greater clarification. The ultimate tool for educational and business conferences, it allows lectures to be fully documented with clear digital sound and accompanying images. The W-10 can be used to record and document vacations, weddings, parties or any other events, advertising thumbnails and storyboards, lectures, real estate demonstrations and more. All kind of instantaneous recordings and slide show presentations are now made possible thanks to the W-10. The Olympus W-10 comes equipped with a USB cable, Voice Album Software on CD ROM, earphones, hand-strap, soft case and 2 AAA batteries.
