iRecord: simple, powerful interview recording for law enforcement and child advocacy centers.

In the battle to strengthen cases and win prosecutions, it is continually proven that a video recording of police interviews are one of the strongest tools a law enforcement agency can provide.

iRecord has known this for nearly ten years. While less expensive - and less effective - solutions flood the marketplace, they have remained true to a single guiding mission: to deliver the highest quality, most simply operated video recording, archival and distribution platform on the market. It's a guiding principle that has resulted in hundreds of iRecord installations nationwide.

What sets iRecord apart from DVRs and other recording platforms?

The iRecord Software

  • The simple iRecord interface means that system users can review, annotate, and distribute video more easily than with standard DVRs, with no danger of disturbing the original file.
  • Multiple levels of security, a defined audit trail that captures and documents access to each file, and an option to separate recordings by department all protect the contents of the iRecord system from unauthorized users.
  • iRecord records each interview twice, in both Windows Media and MPEG-2 formats. These non-proprietary formats ensure that iRecord videos can be played anywhere, on any player or computer, without the need for additional, sometimes buggy software.
  • Notes fields allow personal clickable "bookmarks" to be placed on the video, to easily access key points of the video during later review.
  • Optional network integration that allows long-term file storage on Storage Area Networks, aggregation of videos in a central repository (Enterprise), access to videos for playing/annotation/burning on authorized LAN/VPN workstations, and live monitoring of interviews on authorized workstations.
  • Features such as real-time DVD burning of interviews and redaction customize the iRecord platform to your department's specific requirements.
  • Automatic disc spanning technology breaks long interviews up over multiple DVDs, without manually separating the file as many DVRs require.
  • iRecord Free Player, included with each Windows Media video burned, allows viewing of the video - with bookmarks - by other users without additional software.

iRecord Architecture

  • Each durable iRecord server will support up to four rooms of simultaneous recording, depending on your needs. Moreover, because our servers utilize standard PC hardware, future repair costs are minimized.
  • iRecord software is based on the familiar and comfortable Windows operating platform.
  • Covert cameras and microphones allow your facility to determine whether or not subjects are aware of recording.
  • Available dry contact switches enable one-touch recording start and stop without accessing the server.

iRecord Models

iRecord is available in several models, including:

  • Single-room (iRecord ONE)
  • Single-room with network integration (iRecord Essential)
  • 1-4 room server without network integration (iRecord Lite)
  • 1-4 room server with network integration (iRecord Professional)
  • Central repository that retains and distributes videos from multiple networked iRecord servers (iRecord Enterprise)
