The New Features of The SpeechMike Premium Touch
The Touch Sensor
The touch sensor is the most obvious difference of the SpeechMike Premium Touch compared to the SpeechMike Premium.
Robust and Dustproof
Since there are no mechanical parts involved the touch sensor cannot get stuck or stop working due to dust and dirt.
In opposite to standard trackball designs there is no need to disassemble the parts for cleaning which always poses the potential risk to lose parts or damage the whole trackball assembly.
Free floating, decoupled microphone for precise recording
The microphone in the 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 noises, touch or click noises, air and structure borne noises are recorded. This technique is derived from studio microphones to make sure there are no sound distortions whatsoever – and guarantee outstanding speech recognition results.
Microphone grille with optimized structure for crystal clear sound
A well-engineered microphone grille makes the high-end microphone as in the 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 noises, guaranteeing perfect results even if dictating closely into the microphone.
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 touch 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. There are plenty of situations where 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.
Freely configurable function key 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.
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.
