One of the most powerful features of the new Pocket Memo dictation recorder is the breakthrough 3-dimensional microphone technology. The 3D Mic technology uses multiple built-in microphones to always deliver the very best dictation results. The omnidirectional microphone offers 360 degree sound pick-up, making it ideal for recording meetings. The directional microphone is optimized for dictation and accurate speech-recognition results. The built-in motion sensor notices when the device is placed on the desk or held in the hand and automatically selects the microphone accordingly to suit the recording situation, ensuring best dictating results.
The new Philips Pocket Memo digital dictation recorder is made from ultra-durable stainless steel. This creates a robust protective shell around the device. Its lightweight and asymmetric design offers perfect ergonomics for working over longer periods of time.
The Pocket Memo also features a ‘classic mode’ which displays an animation of a traditional Philips mini cassette. “It gives you the look and feel of working with an analog tape recorder and lets you focus on the essentials, while keeping the advantages of digital technology.” (Thomas Brauner, CEO Speech Processing Solutions)
With the integrated light and motion sensors the power consumption of the new Pocket Memo is automatically reduced to a minimum, guaranteeing an extended battery life for heavy users. Coupled with SpeechExec Pro software for efficient data management and a docking station for uploading your files, going from your voice to a text document has never been quicker.
SpeechExec Dictation Hub service enables you to use all the benefits of a professional Smartphone dictation solution without spending money on the underlying server infrastructure or investing time and money in maintenance and support. With minimum effort and definable costs you can record dictations via Android, BlackBerry, iPhone Smartphones and transfer them to your company. SpeechExec Dictation Hub will send the dictation files to a predefined email address (e.g. to the secretary for transcription) or FTP location. So no matter where your dictations have to be recorded they will be sent rapidly to their destination. Therefore this service is an extraordinary addition to the classic digital dictation machines with the ergonomic design from Philips.
Digital dictation solutions from Philips offer a host of advantages over analog cassette-based devices and can be seamlessly integrated into your existing company workflows. The main advantages of switching over to digital dictation include:
All data is saved electronically on your PC and can be made available for processing immediately via your network. Dictations are automatically distributed, making your standard work processes quicker and highly efficient.
The transcription team can clearly see which jobs are urgent and require immediate transcription by consulting their electronic jobs list. A dictation can be easily prioritized in the jobs list with just the click of a button on the dictation device.
Dictation files can be sent directly from the creator’s PC to the transcription team – either via the LAN (office network) or e-mail – and distributed among several different typists in advance. Dictations can also be sent when you are out of the office, ensuring maximum flexibility.
The quality of digital sound files is excellent for transcription, minimizing errors and allowing documents to be processed more quickly. The standard headset and foot control also mean that the transcription team can continue to use the same working process that they use for analog files to transcribe the new digital sound files.
Details for all dictations are available in electronic format and displayed in a clear and simple jobs list. The jobs list displays all new and ongoing jobs for the transcription team. Information such as the date and length of dictations allow the transcription team to start and complete jobs either in chronological order or based on the amount of time available to them, thus ensuring maximum time efficiency. None of this information is available when a cassette is sent to a typist in the mail!
The digital dictation files are automatically saved in archive folders, so that you can access them at a later date. The files take up very little memory space – and you won’t have to find room on the shelves and in the filing cabinets of your office.
Philips digital products are compatible with Nuance speech recognition solutions, which make it possible for you to convert your spoken words into text in seconds. The system improves with each dictation and adapts to the way you speak for guaranteed optimal results.
Confidential and sensitive data can be protected by encrypted passwords to prevent unauthorized access and can be saved in a folder specifically for confidential data. With digital dictation, all information is available in electronic format and clearly set out in a simple list. Electronic back-ups can be made for all digital dictations, making lost or damaged tapes a thing of the past.
