The Philips DPM8000 is the latest and greatest digital voice recorder from Philips. This unit replaces the LFH9600 which was the previous top-of-the-line professional voice recorder from Philips in Germany.

What’s amazing about this recorder is focused around the build quality, digital audio performance and user functionality.

You really do need to hold this device in your hand to appreciate the fully stainless steel construction that extrudes quality and engineering expertise. I use one of these devices personally in the voice recognition office and it always impresses people when they see it in action. It’s very robust and expertly crafted. It feels like it would last for years and years.

The superb digital audio performance comes from its new 3-D Mic technology system. Essentially, there are two omnidirectional 360° stereo microphones which can pick up multiple speakers in a meeting but are also highly optimised for dictation and speech recognition use.

In terms of user functionality, the DPM8000 device incorporates unique features like a motion sensor, which senses when the device is placed on the desk (or held in the hand) and selects the right mode accordingly. Also the responsive ergonomic slide switch which is designed for simple operation for all recording and playback function. This allows you to easily edit a file by overwriting, pending or inserting additional voice recordings as if it was an old school tape rec

order. This makes this recorder a great transition recorder from people coming from analogue tape as it simulates the same type of system as tape ‑ but brings all the advantages of the digital audio technology.

A large high-resolution colour display makes it really easy to identify the state of the recorder and it’s easy and intuitive to operate the menu system.dpm-8000

The new Philips DPM8000 also has a high capacity lithium ion battery pack that can be charged with a standard micro USB connector. The runtime is outstanding.

The DPM8000 also comes with a high quality docking station which allows you to quickly charge and automatically transfer your digital voice recordings to your computer (or your support staff). This integrates seamlessly with the Philips speech dictation (SpeechExec) software that is supplied with the voice recorder.

Recordings can also be encrypted in real-time using 256 bit encryption protocols, so your data is secure.  You can also pin code your voice recorder to protect against unauthorised file playback.

The bottom line is that this is one of the best (probably the best) digital voice recorders on the market. It has an extremely high build quality, very high quality audio and functions that advanced users need ‑ without an overly complex interface.

These solid features make the Philips DMP 8000 ideal for use with optional Dragon Naturally Speaking or Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 speech recognition software packages.
