The Olympus AS-5000 transcription kit combines with the Olympus DS-5000 digital dictation voice recorder, or other professional digital voice recorders from Olympus, to provide a complete, end-to-end business solution. Complete with USB transcription footswitch, headset, and powerful transcription software, the AS-5000 can easily be integrated into the workflow of any office system and significantly streamline data sharing and distribution of dictations between professionals, departments, and office locations. Special email and FTP functions enable digital dictation files to be automatically routed to predetermined locations or addresses upon downloading. Citrix and Terminal Service are fully supported. The new features, such as Audio capture function and automatic software upgrade via internet, in the new DSS Player Pro Release 5 (Windows) improves the usability of the software.

Mac User? If you plan to buy a transcription kit for install on a Mac then we recommend you buy the AS-2400 over the AS-5000, the software included in both kits is exactly the same for Mac users. The key difference between the AS-2400 and the AS-5000 is the Windows software.

By coupling the state of the art Olympus DS-5000 digital dictation recorder with the Olympus AS-5000 Transcription Kit, efficiency can be taken up several notches in businesses of all sizes. Digital dictation thereby becomes a fully integrated part of the office workflow and the conversion from voice to text is made significantly easier.

The Olympus AS 5000 Transcription Kit includes the RS28 USB Transcription Foot Control and E62 Headset headset to ensure ergonomic working by the transcriptionist. In addition, process efficiency is optimised thanks to the new DSS Player Pro Transcription Software Module bundled with the AS-5000 Transcription Kit. Besides making secure file management easier than ever before, it offers multiple file transfer options to suit individual requirements.

Full Citrix and Terminal Service support is provided and it is compatible with POP3, SMTP, IMAP Microsoft Outlook, Novell GroupWise, Lotus Notes and Extended MAPI email environments. Moreover, SSL support for email/ftp is also included. The Olympus DS-5000 digital dictation voice recorder and Olympus AS-5000 transcription kit - along with the corresponding DSS Player Pro software - represent a complete digital dictation and transcription system for businesses of all types and sizes.
