Philips Digital Voice Recorders Feature Explanations:

1 - Exchangeable SD / Multimedia Card
Enjoy virtually unlimited recording capacity with an exchangeable SD card. A 2 GB SD memory card will provide about 349 hours of recording time in SP format or 523 hours of recording time in LP format.

In addition to its built-in memory, the DVT7000 has a slot for an optional microSD card of up to 32 GB (SDHC).

2 - Voice-Activated Recording
Voice-activated recording mode is a convenient feature for hands-free dictation. When voice-activated recording is enabled, the DPM is in Record Standby mode; recording will start automatically when the input level exceeds a certain threshold (i.e. usually when you start dictating). Recording stops a few seconds after you stop speaking and restarts automatically when you start speaking again.
3 - DSS (Digital Speech Standard) / DSS Pro File Format
Offering outstanding audio quality for recorded voice, .dss allows for a high compression rate, reducing file size, network traffic and required storage capacity. Legal firms, hospitals, government institutions or other users can benefit from reduced data volumes, resulting in easier file upload and transfer by e-mail, as well as reduced network traffic. The crystal-clear sound quality ensures that even quietly spoken passages can be understood and speech recognition can be applied. At the same time, .dss keeps power consumption in check, extending battery life. All professional Philips digital dictation devices, such as the SpeechMikes and the Digital Pocket Memos, support the .dss standard.

DSS Pro file compression, an enhancement of the DSS standard, guarantees crystal-clear sound quality for more accurate manual transcription and optimized speech recognition results. The already high audio quality has been further improved with 16kHz sampling, and an encryption algorithm is supported for the first time. The 16 kHz sampling rate facilitates the improved use of speech recognition systems and is thus even better suited to professional requirements.

4 - Stereo MP3 File Formats
The Conference Recording System's Digital Pocket Memo 955 two-channel conference recorder is always ready to record your meeting. It offers a choice of recording formats including two-channel MP3 recording in Super High Quality stereo and High Quality stereo modes.
5 - Stereo PCM File Format
The Conference Recording System's Digital Pocket Memo 955 two-channel conference recorder is always ready to record your meeting. PCM recording mode can be enabled through the included SpeechExec Pro Dictate software, offering CD quality recording in uncompressed Audio CD format for crystal-clear 44.1kHz, 16-bit stereo sound.
6 - Four-Position Switch
The 4-position switch enables easy one-thumb operation with Lock/Hold switch functionality. The four positions are (from top to bottom): Record (REC), Stop (STOP), Play (PLAY) and Fast Rewind (FRWD).
7 - File Encryption and PIN
With the Philips Digital Pocket Memo 9600, security and confidentiality is ensured through file encryption. Voice files can be real-time encrypted and password-protected to prevent unauthorized access. Another level of privacy is ensured through personal user key codes, making the 9600 the first HIPAA*-compliant recorder on the market.

8 - Backlit LCD Display
Backlit LCD display makes reading the display in poor light conditions easier. The Digital Pocket Memo 9600's large graphical display lets you view all file information, such as the client name, keywords, length of dictation, position within the file, and other vital information at a glance. Digital Pocket Memos offer two display setting options:
  • The Standard display option uses larger symbols without showing the status indication bar.
  • The Advanced display option uses smaller symbols. It enables you to view more information on the current dictation and shows the status indication bar. This bar provides visual feedback when a dictation, for example, is recorded or played back.
9 - Two Smart Buttons
Two smart buttons let you scroll through menu options and quickly make selections. Navigating through the menu to assign work types and other commands is fast and intuitive.
10 - User-Definable Keywords
Philips Digital Voice Recorders enable you to personalize your dictations via predefined Keywords for easy organization and filing. Keyword input such as the author's name or work type can be assigned to the dictated files. On the DPM, the authors can select from the predefined entries and assign them to their dictations. These entries are saved together with the dictation and can finally be used by the transcriptionist for filtering the dictations.
11 - End-of-Letter Index
When you are finished and do not want to make any further changes to a dictation, pressing the EOL button (End-of-Letter) to mark the current dictation as finished. Finishing a dictation via the EOL button is also possible in Record Standby mode. The file is closed and a new, empty file is automatically generated. The file number is increased by one. The EOL button can also be disabled, if desired.
12 - Insert, Overwrite and Delete Functions
Insert, overwrite and delete functions allow full editing and continuity of dictation (buttons can also be disabled). The delete function can be used for deleting a section from a sound file or deleting the whole sound file. The INS/OVR button switches between Insert and Overwrite modes. In Overwrite mode the new speech replaces existing speech in the sound file from the insertion point forward. Insert mode allows new speech to be added to a sound file while leaving the existing speech intact.

The Conference Recording System's Digital Pocket Memo 955 offers Delete and Append editing functions. Regardless of the current position in the recording, additions to a recording are always appended at the end of a file without overwriting the existing recording. The delete function can be used for deleting a section from a sound file or deleting the whole sound file.

13 - Voice Commands
Assign job data such as keywords simply by speaking them. This increases efficiency and minimizes errors.
14 - USB Charge and Fast-Charge, USB Powered Recording
The Digital Pocket Memo 9600 and 9500 can be quick-charged through the USB connection to your PC. All current Digital Pocket Memos and Voice Tracers can be charged through the USB connection to your PC (rechargeable batteries are optional with the Pocket Memo 9380). This gives you the assurance that your recorder will always be ready to work when you are.

To record over longer periods, the Voice Tracers DVT7000, DVT5500 and DVT3500 can be powered through USB. Simply connect your Voice Tracer to a USB port and record lectures or conversations without draining the battery.

15 - PC Download Via USB 2.0
A standard USB 2.0 high speed connection allows you to easily upload sound files to a computer or network and send them to your transcriptionist.

When a Digital Pocket Memo model is connected to a PC via the USB cable and that the switch is in the Stop position, the download process is started automatically. With the included SpeechExec Dictate software you can also configure the download process to begin only after the DPM's DL/INDEX button is pressed. You can also configure whether individual sound files or all of the sound files will be transferred from the DPM to the PC.

16 - Foot Control and Stereo Headphones Included
The versatile Philips Digital Starter Kit 9397 guarantees high digital quality from dictation to transcription. The latest recording technology combines ergonomically designed hardware with ingenious dictation and transcription software, and makes your dictation experience convenient as never before. The powerful Digital Pocket Memo 9370 offers you virtually unlimited recording capacity with crystal clear sound quality. The SpeechExec Starter Kit Software, together with the new USB foot control and stereo headphones guarantees a smooth transcription process. Set your individual preferences for dictation and transcription to simplify your daily life!
17 - Remote Control, Conference Mics and Interview Mic Included
The Philips Conference Recording System is a compact, easy-to-use solution for all your conference recording needs. It is packaged with two high-quality omnidirectional conference microphones to capture every discussion in stereo quality. For large conferences, the operating range can be extended by connecting up to six microphones to record up to 32 participants. The compact click-on interview microphone is the ideal solution for recording interviews in high-quality stereo mode.

The Philips Voice Tracer Meeting Recorder DVT7000 is also packaged with two high-quality omnidirectional conference microphones and a remote control.

18 - Index Mark Feature
The handy index function lets you mark particular points in a recording for easy retrieval.
19 - Built-in Three-Microphone System With Low-Noise Mics
The high-quality built-in microphones provide excellent recording. With three microphones, select Voice Tracers are perfect for recording distant voices, speeches and conversations. On top of that they're ideal for capturing music in outstanding definition and clarity. The signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio of the high-sensitivity microphones is far better than those of standard microphones. Recording sensitivity is increased (picks up more voice signal) without compromising sound quality.
20 - FM Stereo Digital Tuner With 20 Station Presets and FM Recording
Enjoy your favorite FM radio programs whenever you like, as often as you like. Simply activate the record function when you hear your favorite radio programs, the VoiceTracer records the radio signal in MP3 format.
