By: Philips
ATLANTA - Dec. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- Speech Processing Solutions, the market leader in professional dictation systems, today announced Philips SpeechAir offers a comprehensive, dedicated dictation solution with optimal sound quality and mobility, creating superior workflow and functionality for users. The SpeechAir, which recently earned the highest recording accuracy score by Nuance Communications and won the 2016 Red Dot Product Design Award for exceptional ergonomic design, also features advanced design and security elements for professional users in all industries.

Philips SpeechAir offers the latest voice technology advancements with the convenience and mobility of a smartphone, including features such as a camera, barcode scanner and touchscreen. However, unlike a smartphone, the device was created specifically for efficient, on-the-go dictation. SpeechAir allows for a more secure, streamlined dictation workflow by combining mobile technology with traditional dictation components, including:

Superior Recording Quality: SpeechAir features three professional microphones that deliver ultimate sound quality, even when used in noisy environments. The 360-degree microphone is ideal for recording meetings with multiple speakers; the directional microphone is best-suited for noisy environments; and a third microphone is dedicated to VoIP technology.
Maximum Security: SpeechAir recordings are encrypted in real-time using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a key length of 256 bits for maximum data security. The device also features a PIN code to protect against unauthorized use, and features such as the camera can be locked to prevent file access if the device is stolen.
Streamlined Workflows: SpeechAir is compatible with all Philips dictation solutions including the Philips SpeechLive ( cloud-based dictation and transcription solution. In addition, it offers forwarding rules to ease file-sharing between authors and transcriptionists, and offers Wi-Fi controls for employees to ensure file security.
Longer Battery Life: SpeechAir's built-in, rechargeable Li-ion battery features a capacity of 2700 mAh and has a lifetime of up to 97 hours. This robust battery power is capable of up to 12 hours of continuous recording in DSS QP mode and fully recharges in only 3 hours.
Extended Storage Space: The Philips SpeechAir dictation device features 16 GB of internal memory, which is capable of storing the equivalent of 176 days' worth of audio files.

"While convenient, most smartphone dictation applications simply cannot compete with the security and sound quality of Philips SpeechAir," said Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions. "SpeechAir represents an ideal combination of mobility and performance, merging smartphone-like functionality with dictation features that have been developed and refined by Philips and Speech Processing Solutions for more than 60 years. SpeechAir is perfect for on-the-go professionals who require high quality, security and efficiency in all their dictation needs."
