3 Things Your Interview Room Recording Should Do For You
- Provide a single file, regardless of size, for your entire interview.
Many older interview room recording systems are limited to producing files of a maximum size or duration, which therefore parses the interview into multiple files.
Today’s most advanced solutions capture every interview in a single MPEG 4 or Windows media file, eliminating the wasted time searching across multiple files to locate a potentially critical recording.
- Provide continuous recording regardless of how long the interview takes.
You should not need to interrupt your interview to restart or continue the recording. We see many older solutions that limit the duration of recording. Imagine interviewing a restless child for 59 minutes only to ask him to hold that thought while you leave the room to press continue. Your non-stop, endless recording solution should allow you to focus on the interview.
- Allow you to search for files based on interview data and notes.
Searching files by date is helpful but hardly meets all your needs. You need to be able to search by detective name, suspect name, case number or other meta data. Even better is to add searchable notes to the files. A highly searchable recording system will enhance your investigations and make you more productive by reducing the time needed to find required recordings.
