Aiwa Co., Ltd. has become the first Japanese maker to introduce an IC recorder with digital camera, the IC-DP200.
Aiwa designed a fully digital device incorporating two handy products – an IC recorder and digital camera – in one compact unit. With the IC-DP200, users can record images as well as voice/sound. Both the sound and images are stored as digital data. These data can be easily edited on a PC with a USB connection to one’s computer. The IC-DP200 is thus an extremely convenient IC recorder for people requiring an accurate record of a business trip, interview, exhibition, lecture, and so on, using the digital sound and images. Aiwa targets business users in their 20s to 40s as main purchasers of the IC-DP200.
The IC-DP200 offers an impressive range of features: maximum of 260 minutes of digital sound recording or maximum of 200 images thanks to its 16MB built-in memory; G.729 recording format that is noise tolerant and ideal for LP mode recording; kit for connecting to PC (USB cable, PC link software) is supplied so that users can instantly hook up the IC-DP200 to their PCs and edit the data; dual-file system allows sound to be recorded in either one of the two files (up to 100 message per file) according to contents; and compact design with excellent portability and operability.
