Free-floating, decoupled microphone
A free-floating microphone eliminates touch and click noises as well as background noises. Using a technique derived from studio equipment, the microphone is completely decoupled from its housing. “This free-floating design ensures crystal-clear recordings and guarantees the extraordinary speech recognition results of the new SpeechMike Premium even in noisy environments,” states Thomas Brauner, CEO Speech Processing Solutions.
Noise filter and optimized grille
Outstanding recording quality is also achieved by an integrated filter, ensuring perfect results even while dictating close to the microphone. The microphone is surrounded by a hexagonal grille specially engineered to provide the clearest possible recordings.
Integrated motion sensor and barcode scanner
The “Philips SpeechMike Premium” is the first dictation device which can be controlled by the movement of the hand. When placed on a table, the device mutes the microphone, unmuting it when it is picked up. This feature can be beneficial, for instance in the event of incoming phone calls.
An integrated barcode scanner can link client or patient data to a recorded file. The scanned information is automatically attached to the dictation file, streamlining the documentation process.
The housing and buttons of the new “Philips SpeechMike Premium” are made of antimicrobial synthetics, guarding it against all kinds of germs.
Easy plug & play integration with existing systems
“Philips SpeechMike Premium” is fully backwards compatible with earlier generations of the SpeechMike. “Integrators do not need to implement changes and may use the existing software development kit. The SpeechMike Premium is compatible with both Windows and Mac as well as with virtual environments such as Citrix and Windows Terminal Server,” explains Thomas Brauner.
The “Philips SpeechMike Premium” sets the new standard and takes desktop dictation to a new level.
