Large Backlit LCD Display
Backlit LCD display makes reading the display in poor light conditions easier. The Digital Pocket Memo 9500's large 1.7-inch graphical display shows all file information, such as keywords (author name), length of dictation, position within the file, and other information at a glance.
Exchangeable Multimedia/SD Card
By supporting both Multimedia and SD Cards, Philips gives you freedom of choice and full flexibility for hours of voice recording. The DPM 9500 supports MMC and SD cards with storage capacities of up to 2 GB. The included 256MB SD memory card will provide about 44 hours of recording time in SP format or 65 hours of recording time in LP format.
DSS (Digital Speech Standard) 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.
SpeechExec Pro Dictate Dictation Software Included
The Digital Pocket Memo 9500 is packaged with SpeechExec Pro Dictate. This professional dictation software facilitates the sharing and archiving of dictations and streamlines communication between author and transcriptionists. Features such as file encryption and interface with speech recognition systems.
Designed Around Non-Proprietary Industry Standards
The Digital Pocket Memo is designed around standardized technologies. From SD (or MMC) cards, mini-USB cables, batteries and sockets to the industry-standard .dss file format for speech processing, Philips employs non-proprietary accessories and technologies for the ultimate compatibility.
Author Identification
All dictations can be marked with the author's name for easier job identification and file routing.
Automatic Transfer of Dictation Files Via E-mail or FTP
Automatic e-mail/FTP delivery transfers files directly to a transcriptionist or outsourcing service.
USB 2.0 Mass Storage Support
With USB mass storage support, the Digital Pocket Memo is automatically displayed as an external drive when it is connected to the computer. It can then be accessed easily with any Microsoft Windows program as a regular drive.
USB Fast-Charge
The Digital Pocket Memo 9500 can be quick-charged through the USB connection to your PC. This gives you the assurance that your recorder will always be ready to work when you are.
Automatic PC Download
A standard USB 2.0 connection allows you to easily upload sound files to a computer or network and send them to your transcriptionist. When the DPM 9500 is connected to a PC via the USB cable, by default 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 9500'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.
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.
Index Marks
Index marks can be inserted at any position in the sound file. You can insert an index mark during Playback or Recording mode. Index marks can be used to mark certain points in a recording as points of reference. A point of reference may be the beginning of a major section, or a part of the recording that you may want to revise later or access quickly. In Playback mode, the index mark string is shown on the display when the playback cursor moves over an index mark. When you fast forward or fast rewind the file, the DPM 9500 will interrupt the current action at the insertion point of an index mark for about one second and the DPM will beep.
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.
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.
Adjustable Microphone Sensitivity
Three-level adjustable microphone sensitivity for conference or close-range recordings.
