Philips Speech teams up with Sembly AI to launch a speech tech solution

Dr. Thomas Brauner, Chief Executive Officer of Speech Processing Solutions

Speech Processing Solutions, a company in professional speech-to-text solutions sold under the Philips brand, has teamed up with an exciting American start-up named Sembly AI. Together they’ll unite to provide high-quality microphones and smart meeting technology.

Sembly goes beyond simple speech recognition and offers users instant searchable meeting transcripts, highlights key discussion moments, and creates summaries.

What does the partnership have lined up?

The new SmartMeeting Conference devices come with high-quality microphones that offer 360° recording, whilst capturing each speaker in the room and guarantees crisp, clear audio.

USB and Bluetooth connectivity options ensure flexibility and allow for a wide-range of use-cases; whether in the office, or on the go. One product even features an intelligent camera, which can be configured to recognize which participant is speaking and focus on them.

“The opportunity to work with Sembly AI gives us new market opportunities by offering best of both worlds” explains Dr. Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions.

“We provide best-in-class conference microphones and pair them up with a smart meeting assistant solution, which creates an automatic transcript, summary, and an action list of every meeting. Our tech help our clients save time and conduct meetings more efficiently.”

“We are especially excited about the complementary nature and synergy between our two teams which is expected to boost both of our companies top and bottom lines. The Philips products seamlessly integrate with the included Sembly SaaS to provide more value to our end customers” commented Gil Makleff, CEO and Co-founder of Sembly AI.

Does the solution work on all meeting platforms?

“No matter if you are working with Zoom, gMeet, Teams or Webex, our smart meeting assistant joins your meetings as an attendant and does the note-taking for you” adds Artem Koren, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Sembly AI. Users can easily forward the meeting summaries, for example to colleagues who happened to have missed the meeting.

The new products will be available the US, UK, South Africa, Israel, ANZ from June 1st 2022. For more information, please visit: www.philips.dictation.com/smartmeeting
