The fusion of two worlds

“Philips SpeechAir unites the best of two worlds. It’s the missing link between the worlds of smartphones and dictation recorders ,” said Dr. Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions. The users benefit from the flexibility of an Android product, including the familiar look and feel, a touch screen, a camera, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth data transfer options. SpeechAir offers a variety of possibilities: mobility, multi-functionality combined with comfort and efficiency. And the dictation function? It’s certainly something to talk about with three precision microphones providing superior recording quality, ergonomic single-handed slide-switch control operation, remote administration, long-lasting rechargeable batteries for maximum performance and maximum data security through real-time encryption. The built-in camera is not just great for snapping quick photos, it also serves as a barcode scanner – ideally suited for various practice areas including health care. SpeechAir is designed to last, and its antimicrobial and shock proof housing with Gorilla glass make it suitable for the toughest environments.

Superior sound quality and maximum security

The device is equipped with the latest technology including three professional microphones that guarantee the best sound quality in every recording situation. The 360° microphone is ideal for recording meetings and dictations; the directional microphone helps cancel noise and is specifically designed for ambient-sound environments, while a third microphone allows VoIP phone calls. To ensure maximum data security, all SpeechAir recordings are encrypted in real time using AES, 256-bit. The device itself can be PIN or password protected, the camera can be locked, and access to Wi-Fi networks can be restricted.

Easy integration into existing IT systems

The legal and medical professions are the primary target audience of SpeechAir. Lawyers and medical practitioners value its effectiveness and mobility. “When we developed Philips SpeechAir we thought of busy professionals who frequently travel or work remotely,” said Dr. Brauner. “Thanks to the built-in functions, users don’t need to wait until they’re back in the office to transfer their data.”

It’s easy to integrate Philips SpeechAir with other workflow solutions, such as hospital information systems or legal practice and case management software. Software and system developers can install their own apps, while users can configure SpeechAir to directly access patient and client data connecting it with relevant dictation recordings.

Speak. Send. Done: The perfect solution for mobile recording

SpeechAir is ideal for combining it with other Philips workflow solutions, such as the Cloud-Service SpeechLive.
