DPM8000 by Philips

With the new digital dictation recorder, Philips reshapes the world of professional dictation.

Every single detail has been considered and used to completely redesign the Pocket Memo. The materials and technical components used to craft this remarkable device were selected with the highest grade of precision and attention to detail, to ensure the absolute best product quality. One of the most powerful features is the breakthrough 3D Mic technology with its integrated motion sensor, which guarantees ultimate recording results in all situations.

Uniting the most powerful features that really matter to our users in one single ultra-mobile device required brilliant engineering, in-depth end-user insight and highest commitment. Only by delivering all this, can we proudly state that the all-new Pocket Memo is taking dictation to the next level.

Superior audio quality and stunning design

Feature Image

3D mic system for best audio quality

The breakthrough 3D Mic technology uses the built-in microphones to always deliver best recording results: an omnidirectional microphone offering 360 degree sound pick-up, ideal for the recording of multiple sound sources such as meetings, and a unidirectional microphone optimized for voice recording and accurate speech-recognition results.

Feature Image

Motion sensor

The built-in motion sensor senses when the device is placed on the desk or held in the hand and selects the microphone accordingly to suit the recording situation. The motion sensor switches automatically into standby mode when the device is idle. Once the Pocket Memo is picked up again, it's ready to record within seconds.

Feature Image

Wear-free slide switch

The quick-response and ergonomic slide switch is designed for singlehanded operation of all recording and playback functions, allowing easy and quick file editing (insert, overwrite, append). It operates with a light sensor signal, making it wear-free and durable.

Feature Image

Robust and ergonomic design

The asymmetrical and ergonomic shape fits perfectly into your hand. Its slim and lightweight design maximizes comfort, even when working over longer periods of time. The brushed stainless steel creates a robust and highly durable protective shell around the device.

Enhance Your Productivity

Feature Image

Large, high-resolution color display

The large full-color display offers sharp images, making it easier to see everything at first glance. The clear user interface is optimized for easy, intuitive operation.

Feature Image

Classic mode

Many users still love their analog devices for their simplicity and user friendliness. The optional classic mode gives the user the look and feel of working with an analog device while retaining the advantages of digital technology and keep focused on the essentials.

Feature Image

Extended battery runtime

The high-capacity Li-ion battery can be easily charged through a standard micro USB jack. The integrated light and motion sensors guarantee extended battery life. The smart technology adjusts the brightness of the display and switches automatically into stand-by mode when the device is idle, ensuring that your recorder will always be ready to work when you are.

Feature Image

Docking Station

The stable and superior docking station provides speedy charging and automatic transfer of your recording to your computer. With an optional foot control connected, the docking station enables hands-free recording and transcription even without a computer.

Designed for Professionals

Feature Image

Remote Configuration & Maintenance

The Philips SpeechExec Remote Device Manager software* allows IT administrators to centrally manage, configure and update dictation hardware from Philips, saving valuable time and resources. Managing device settings for individuals, groups and teams or the whole organization is easily done remotely.

Feature Image

High Data Security

Recordings can be encrypted in real time using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES or Rijndael Algorithm) with a key length of 256 bits. AES provides a very high degree of security and has been approved in the USA for the most highly classified government information. The device itself can be assigned a PIN code to protect against unauthorized use or file playback.

Feature Image

Optional WLAN Adapter

Files can easily be uploaded without a PC straight to the network, simplifying and speeding up the dictation workflow. This way of working reduces total cost of IT ownership and maintenance, as well as allowing central administration. Through an administration software tool you can remotely configure several WLAN adapters.

Latest Reviews

The Philips DPM8000 is a fantastic dictation machine. It might look overpriced, but we had only 2 alternative for our medical office: either the Ds7000 by Olympus or the Philips DPM8000. Both on par and both worth the consideration for a medical office that follows HIPPA regulations and requires Ds2 secured encrypted interphase built in. Currently the DPM is slightly higher rated, but then in a year or so the Olympus next recorder might take the lead. We had the machine for about 1 month and I could not be happier. We see about 350- 400 patients/ week and need a professional tool that is well made, has a 120Hrs of dictation time or more and an insert option, to allow to add the X rays we took or Bone Density report etc. into our reports. Eric from sales and Eric from VIP Technical Service have been phenomenal individuals to work with, justifying the price tag and the fact "you get what you pay for".
