Philips DPM8900 Overview

The PocketMemo Digital Meeting Recorder from Philips features an extendable 360° microphone system that offers flexibility as well as ease of use. You can extend the recording range of your recorder by simply connecting up to six meeting microphones. The boundary layer design of the included meeting microphones uses the sound pressure of the table to provide good sound and recording quality with a 360° sound pickup radius. The built-in wire storage in the 360° microphones allows you to adjust the length of the cable.

The SpeechExec software organizes the workflow of dictation files and resulting documents, allowing you to monitor the status of your work. When plugged in, the PocketMemo voice recorder automatically downloads your audio files directly onto the computer. It features a 1000mAh lithium-ion ACC8100 battery that can be charged in 3 hours.
