Philips DVT8010 overview

  • 1Description

The DVT8010 VoiceTracer from Philips is a portable, digital voice recorder designed to provide flexible, high-quality audio recording options and plug-and-play computer integration for meetings, interviews, conversations, and more. It features three built-in microphones and automatic adjustment of audio-quality recording settings. Its automatic zoom functionality delivers focused, directional sound pickup, ideal for distant sources. It includes an external condenser microphone, which delivers 360-degree sound pickup and requires no stand, due to its omnidirectional polar patter and boundary layer design.

Start recording at the touch of a button, or have the record function begin automatically via a timer or voice activation. Record in PCM (WAV) or MP3 format to the internal 8GB memory. A microSD slot supports up to 32GB of additional memory. The low-noise, three-mic system allows stereo recording without the use of external microphones. A 1/8" (3.5mm) mic input is provided for connection of an external microphone, such as the supplied electret condenser microphone. The AutoAdjustPlus algorithm analyzes incoming audio, then automatically chooses audio settings such as microphone sensitivity, wind filter, and noise reduction. 3Mic AutoZoomPlus technology suppresses surrounding noises for improved source clarity. A motion sensor automatically selects the appropriate microphone for each situation.

Recording time, battery status, stereo volume meters, and more are shown on the 1.77” backlit LCD color display. Audition files in slow, normal, or fast playback speed via the built-in 28mm speaker, or connect your favorite headphones to the 1/8” (3.5mm) jack for isolated listening.

The DVT8010 VoiceTracer is powered by a built-in, rechargeable LiPo battery, which provides up to 50 hours of use. Alternatively, its high-speed USB 2.0 interface allows you to connect it to a computer running Mac OS X, Windows, or Linux. The included wireless remote offers convenient control of record, pause, and stop functions.
