Philips Releases New Digital Pocket Memo 9600

ATLANTA - Royal Philips launched its new Digital Pocket Memo 9600. The handheld recording device offers functionality such as voice commands, voice activation, and keywords, but also includes features that represent the next generation of digital dictation technology. To further leverage this technology, the company also offers users a PC-free LAN docking station and the Philips Barcode Scanner Module.

Advanced features of the Digital Pocket Memo 9600 include:

  • A data security standard in mobile dictation, which facilitates compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and other standards through file encryption, passwords and personal user keys
  • Voice files that are password-protected on the device itself
  • DSS Pro file compression, an enhancement of the DSS standard
  • A backlit display and smart buttons
  • A quick recharge feature
  • Metal case design

Philips new LAN Docking Station can be used to transfer dictations from the Digital Pocket Memo through a LAN (local area network) to a transcriptionist or a speech recognition system without connecting to a computer.

Further, the new Philips Barcode Module has been redesigned to integrate with the Digital Pocket Memo 9600 and create one enhanced device. The compact laser scanner retrieves patient or client information by scanning the barcode, and then attaches that information to the dictation. The Barcode Module can also be used as a USB scanner device, directly transferring the barcode information to a computer.

The Philips Digital Pocket Memo 9600 Series, LAN Docking Station, and Barcode Module will be available starting in March 2007.
