Due to the popular demand of our clients, Philips have launched the AirBridge, a wireless adapter with the aim to make stationary dictation mobile.
Dictation users were previously bound to their desks whilst dictating, until now. Now, AirBridge users enjoy the security and accessibility of their dictations.
The Philips SpeechMike Premium Air or SpeechOne headset can be paired with the AirBridge to ensure the security and accessibility of their dictations.
With this brand new device, the switching from stationary and mobile use is seamless. Simply pair either the SpeechOne or SpeechMike Premium Air with the AirBridge to enjoy the freedom of dictating on the go.
Lossless audio is a thing of the past as users can transfer dictations to their PC with the AirBridge. Every word is captured.
The cutting edge technology of the AirBridge ensures that every word is captured securely. Users enjoy up to five meters of wireless connectivity alongside your SpeechOne or SpeechMike Premium Air.
Robust audio streaming technology reduces the risk of drop outs of unwanted noise within the specified range.
Following a 3 second pairing period, automatic re-connection allows for uninterrupted dictation and seamless integration. Ultimately meaning you can switch between devices seamlessly.
Additionally, a green or red light signals connectivity.
It’s simple, plug it in and play! Connect your Philips AirBridge to the same computer you’re using to dictating and begin.
Thanks to the wireless connectivity, the device allows you to dictate freely without the worry of many wires and cables. Recordings are safely transmitted to your computer in the highest quality, without interruptions.
