Lossless speech technology

The high-quality device delivers maximum mobility without any compromises. Dr Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions explains: “Our unique new device allows users to benefit from all advantages of the industry leading Philips SpeechMike Premium, without the constraints of a cable”. The new Philips SpeechMike Premium Air uses a unique lossless speech technology, which enables users to work cable-free and without any signal interruptions, up to five meters away from their workstations.

New mobility in dictation

The included docking station provides wireless charging under three hours and instant pairing between the user’s device and the dock. “The charged device can easily be used for up to 24 hours. This is especially useful for heavy users in hospitals, legal practices and other roles which carry a high administrative burden” adds Dr Brauner. Together with a foot control, the SpeechMike Premium Air docking station even enables hands-free recording.

Studio-quality microphone designed for speech recognition

The free-floating decoupled microphone in the SpeechMike Premium Air is equipped with a special noise cancelling “pop filter” and distinctive hexagonal grill openings, which allow three times more sound to reach the microphone, compared to its predecessor. All these unique features guarantee that no background, touch, click, air or structure-borne noise is recorded. This helps users achieve high-quality audio recordings, enabling exceptional speech recognition results.

Easy plug & play including pre-configured button modes

The SpeechMike Premium Air supports plug & play functionality and is fully compatible with previous SpeechMike versions. An office or practice can work seamlessly together, even when employees are using different models. The SpeechMike Premium Air also features pre-configured button modes, catered for the needs of leading speech recognition solutions.

The device also works perfectly with the latest Philips SpeechExec Pro software with integrated professional speech recognition for example, as well as with the Philips’ cloud-based dictation workflow solution SpeechLive. Amongst many of its features, SpeechLive offers a professional transcriptionist service, where trained typists transcribe the recordings as well as built-in speech recognition.

“Once you’ve tried the new SpeechMike Premium Air and experience its uncontested ease of use, outstanding speech recognition performance and have the opportunity to stand up and walk around in your office while recording, you will never want to change back to a corded device! This is the break through our customers and the entire speech industry has been waiting for!” Dr Brauner concludes.
