The electronic download of Trinity Server Software and Dongle from CEDAR is audio capture surveillance software that runs on a Windows computer, laptop or tablet with I/O hardware (sold separately), and a complimentary dongle. This software can be used to run an unlimited number of live audio channels, recording at the same time audio probes in hotels and domestic rooms, microphones in interview rooms, live streams from automobiles, and more.
The recorder itself is an invisible part of the system and is always active, even when the machine is asleep or when you are not logged in. To protect against lost data, the software will automatically resume recording after a reboot or when you turn the computer on. Operators can view the live channels simultaneously, recording as many as required, switching with a single click to any feed that seems to be displaying activity of interest.
Furthermore, the audio is time-stamped with time code so the timing of events can be pinned down with complete confidence. Other features include events, some generated by the system and some inserted by the operator, which can be used (for example) to describe activity of interest or for real-time transcription purposes.
In addition, you don't need to stop recording to listen to previous events. The Trinity Server Software and Dongle allows listeners to return to times of interest, to loop sections of audio while enhancing the speech, and to log or transcribe these events while it continues to record. Then, the system allows the user to catch up gradually with real-time events so that nothing is missed. Finally, the system allows you to import existing audio files for listening, speech enhancement, and adding events.
