Digital voice recorder RECARDER - Ready for

Select modifications

RECARDER is designed for professional audio recording. The device is produced in a plastic card body, 1.6 mm thick (identical to SMART and HID-cards).

The device records audio data in a special format file which can’t be played on other recorders and computers.

Recorded data are uploaded to a PC through special card-reader device via USB 2.0 port, and then are saved there as WAV files, that can be played by default Windows Media Player. The card-reader also allows access to all the internal programming of the recorder, as well as recharging of the internal battery.

The recorder has a built-in hidden LED indicator which is programmed to signal the user about the status of battery charge level and memory capacity.

In case of loss of the recorder, only the owner is able to access the data due to user-set password. The recorder also has a digital signature feature that signs each audio file with a unique encrypted signature (AES 128 algorithm). Audio files recorded with this device are qualified for phonoscope expertise.

The record mode can be triggered by means of:

Magnetic contacts - manually by removing the card from card-reader

Sensor - manually by pressing the contact group on the card with a finger

Voice - automatically, provided the VAS (voice activated system) is enabled

Timer - automatically, provided Timer is set and enabled with the software beforehand

The recording can be stopped either by inserting it back into the card-reader or special case, or when the internal battery is depleted or the memory becomes full.
