Liberty Police Interview Recorder

Digital Audio / Video Police Forensic Interview Recorder

Liberty Police Forensic Interview Recorder.

The Liberty Police Interview Recorder is a simple, easy to use recording system that captures forensic interview and interrogation audio, video and notes for police, law enforcement services and other government agencies.

The program uses standard VHS-like Start, Stop and Record buttons. The recorded material is saved into a single file on the recording system hard-drive. Optionally, the file may be automatically and simultaneously recorded to a secure file server and saved onto a CD/DVD. The recordings can later be transcribed or provided to other agencies in a universal playback format.

The recorded notes serve as "bookmarks" or cue points into the recording file. The notes may later be searched to find and identify recordings files. They also eliminate the need to fast-forward or rewind through large recording files.

"The Liberty Police Forensic Interview Recorder allows police and other agencies to capture interview recordings
and document interviews and interrogations."

LIR systems are available that support multiple recording rooms on one PC as well as multi-PC configurations supporting numerous rooms. An example of a rack configuration for multiple PCs is shown above.

Supports Multi-Camera Recording

The Liberty Interview Recorder supports multi-camera recording. Multi-camera recording means that the Liberty system captures and records multiple complete video feeds for each recording session, instead of doing a more traditional picture-in-a-picture overlay. Multi-camera support is critical for applications where users want to capture two complete streams of video. This can be especially important when recording a close view of the subject and a wide-angle view of an entire room. Or for child advocate or adolescent interviews where the subject may move around. The older picture-in-a-picture type solution uses an overlay technique where a portion of the recording stream may be overlaid by a second camera feed, thus obscuring the primary camera and degrading the resulting video.

Liberty Supports Implementations of All Sizes and Complexities

The Liberty system provides the ideal recording solution for both large and small police organizations. The system has been selected and implemented in large police organizations with over 1,000 badged officers supporting civil populations of over 1 million people. Alternatively, the system has also been selected by smaller police organizations with only a single interview / interrogation room.

In the case of a large police organization, the Liberty Interview System can be supplied with a browser interface facility that links the user to a database of the recording files. The browser interface provides search and retrieve facilities that in turn provides the force with quick access to all of their recording files through a central web interface.

For smaller police organizations, the recorder may be installed onto a single computer to record a single interview room. In such a case, a local search and retrieval program may be used to find files and a database is not generally required.
