Olympus VP-10®: Premium Stereo Recorder In A Slim, Pocket-Sized Design

Innovative Compact Design, High-Quality Stereo Recording, Direct USB Connection, Anti-Rustle Technology

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., June 23, 2015 – Olympus is proud to announce the Olympus VP-10 with high-quality audio recording in a compact, travel-anywhere body for note-taking on-the-go. The Olympus VP-10 digital recorder is the first of its kind to offer Anti-Rustle technology in a compact, slim body, making it the ideal device for premium recording even when in the user’s pocket.

Forget about being weighed down by a recorder, at only 1.3 oz. in weight, the Olympus VP-10 allows for light-weight, hands-free recording. Paired with three settings of Anti-Rustle technology (HIGH, LOW, OFF), the VP-10 is the perfect recorder for setting and forgetting in the user’s pocket, coat or bag. This latest innovation in audio recording prevents common device rubbing and brushing from getting in the way of capturing the highest-quality sound.

Packed with 4GB of internal memory, the Olympus VP-10 allows for 1,620 hours of recordings before having to download files to your computer. Once the user is done recording and ready to share, simply use the VP-10’s Direct USB Connection to download audio files. Charging the VP-10’s Ni-MH (BR404) battery is that simple as well. The built-in USB Connection allows for quick and easy charging by simply plugging the VP-10 directly into the USB port of a computer without having to fuss with separate wires and cords.

To further minimize the chance of missing a recording opportunity, the VP-10 offers one-touch recording. By simply sliding down the REC switch, the recorder instantly starts recording even when the power is off. The slide switch is located on the top of the recorder, which is ideal for operating inside a shirt pocket or without having to look up from what you are doing.
