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.

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.

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 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. Noise-Cancellation Function Background noise which may have been captured during recording is powerfully reduced with the world's highest level of noise cancellation technology.
