Free floating, decoupled microphone for precise recording

 Free floating, decoupled microphone for precise recording

The microphone in the new SpeechMike Premium is decoupled from its housing for the most incredible crystal clear recording performance ever to be delivered by a desktop dictation device. The completely redesigned microphone suspension guarantees that almost no background, touch, click, air or structure-borne noise is recorded. This technique is derived from studio microphones to make sure there are no sound distortions whatsoever – and to guarantee outstanding speech recognition results.

A well-engineered microphone grille is able to make a high-end microphone as in the new SpeechMike Premium stand out even more. The hexagonal holes used for the metal grille feature three times more open surface than its predecessor, engineered to provide crystal clear recordings.

 

Integrated pop filter for perfect quality

The microphone area of the SpeechMike Premium is made of many different layers to make it sound as clear and original as possible. One of those is a fleece inserted above and below the microphone capsule. The fleece filters out sound distortions such as pop and hiss noise, guaranteeing perfect results even if dictating closely into the microphone.

 

Large speaker area for premium playback

The device is designed to fit perfectly into the hand and reduce unintentional pressing of buttons. The trigger and the ‘command’ button on the back of the device are engineered to be in easy reach for the fingers.

 

Wear-free slide switch or push buttons for comfortable operation

Wear-free slide switch or push buttons for comfortable operation

The SpeechMike Premium comes with a slide-switch or a push-button operation. The slide switch is wear-free and ergonomically shaped with a softly ribbed surface for smooth tactile feedback and comfortable and intuitive utilization. In addition, our engineers implemented a millionfold proven contactless slider detection, making it completely wear-free for an extra-long lifetime.

 

Integrated motion sensor mutes microphone when not in use

Integrated motion sensor mutes microphone when not in use

Being on the cutting edge of technology, the Philips SpeechMike Premium comes with an integrated motion sensor, making it the first stationary dictation device that can be controlled by the movement of your hand. It detects when it’s put on the table, mutes the microphone, and once it is being picked up again it unmutes the microphone. There are plenty of situations this feature can be greatly beneficial; just think of an incoming phone call or someone stepping in your office. In addition to that, custom events can be programmed, e.g., to pause and to continue the recording.

 

Trackball for integrated mouse function

Trackball for integrated mouse function

The device comes with a trackball. This allows the user to easily control and navigate within applications while recording, without having to switch between the mouse and microphone. The trackball can even be taken out of the device for cleaning, if this should ever be required. The self-lubricated and abrasive resistant Teflon bearings guarantee a smooth operation over the entire lifetime.

 

Freely configurable function keys for a personalized workflow

Freely configurable function keys for a personalized workflow

The Philips SpeechMike Premium is the most advanced dictation microphone to date – and to give the user even more room to personalize their devices, Philips has added an instruction key at the top of the control panel – of course fully and freely user configurable, especially useful for programming speech recognition commands.

 

Antimicrobial housing and buttons for hygienic working

Antimicrobial housing and buttons for hygienic working

The SpeechMike Premium’s housing and buttons are made of antimicrobial synthetics, guarding it against all kinds of germs. Antimicrobial materials work against a wide range of different microorganisms such as bacteria (e.g. pneumococcal bacilli and multiresistant microorganisms such as MRSA), viruses (e.g. HIV, influenza, etc.), fungi (e.g. Aspergillus niger), or algae. The antimicrobial effect on the SpeechMike Premium lasts for at least five years.

 

Smart, backwards compatible firmware for extra flexibility

Smart, backwards compatible firmware for extra flexibility

Customers can upgrade from their previous SpeechMike model without installing additional software. For integrators, this means no changes need to be implemented and the existing SDK can be used. The SpeechMike Premium is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems, as well as virtual environments such as Citrix, VM Ware and Hyper-V. It can be configured using SpeechControl, the convenient Philips hardware management tool.

Large speaker area for premium playback

Compared to its predecessor, the SpeechMike Premium is equipped with a double sized-speaker area that enables it to play back recordings in clear and crisp quality.

Optimized control panel for comfortable working

Designed with three ergonomic zones, the SpeechMike Premium has been tested and proven by users to have the most comfortable fit in the human hand. The dictation zone is optimized to keep thumb movement to a minimum. The buttons needed for the actual dictation functions are placed in the central area of the device guaranteeing perfect ergonomics and non-fatiguing usage for the user. Less frequently needed function buttons are clearly arranged above and below. All buttons used are formed to give as much tactile feedback as possible.

Ergonomically shaped for perfect fit in the hand

As the back of a dictation microphone is as important as the front, Philips put an emphasis on shaping it in a way so that it perfectly fits the hand and reduces unintentional use of buttons. The trigger and the “command” button on the back of the microphone are engineered to be exactly where they need to be. There has never been a desktop dictation device that is as ergonomic as the SpeechMike Premium.

Integrated motion sensor mutes microphone when not in use

Being on the cutting edge of technology, the Philips SpeechMike Premium comes with an integrated motion sensor, making it the first dictation device that can be controlled by the movement of your hand. It detects when it’s put on the table, this mutes the device, and once it is picked up again it unmutes the microphone.

Polished surface for reducing unwanted touch noises

The housing of the SpeechMike Premium is made of high-class polymers. It is endued with a polished surface and the material includes a pearl metal additive providing a high quality metallic effect and making it non-sensitive to touch noises and fingerprints.

Barcode scanner for streamlined documentation

Link client or patient data to a recorded file simply by scanning a bar code (SpeechMike Premium barcode devices only). The scanned information is automatically attached to the dictation file, streamlining the documentation process. All identifying information is entered accurately, increasing security and potential for cost savings. With the SpeechMike Premium, it’s possible to scan barcodes from up to 60 cm / 23 inches distance, twice the distance compared to its predecessor.

Antimicrobial housing and buttons for hygienic working

The SpeechMike Premium’s housing and buttons are made of antimicrobial synthetics, guarding it against all kinds of germs. Antimicrobial materials work against a wide range of different microorganisms such as bacteria (e.g., pneumococcal bacilli and multiresistant microorganisms such as MRSA), viruses (e.g., HIV, influenza, etc.), fungi (e.g., Aspergillus niger), or algae. The antimicrobial effect on the SpeechMike Premium lasts for at least five years.

Laser-scanned, self-cleaning trackball for extra smooth operation

The SpeechMike Premium includes a built-in high-precision stainless steel trackball. Self lubricated and abrasive resistant Teflon bearings guarantee a smooth operation over the entire lifetime. In combination with a laser scanner and self-cleaning features, the trackball is as precise and durable as never before. On top of that, the trackball can even be taken out of the device for cleaning, if this should ever be required.
