Police Interview Room Video Recording Equipment

Recording police interviews allows no tolerance for unintelligible, missed or lost recordings. Every police interview recording video system should offer high-quality video and audio footage, yet be unobtrusive and simple to operate. Analog systems have been common police interview room equipment for a long time — indeed, back in 2001 the IVS team developed one of the first commonly-used law enforcement interview recording systems. Technology has advanced rapidly, however, and current IVS systems utilize HD IP camera technology to provide a cutting-edge police interview room video solution.

 

Police Interview Video Recording Systems by IVS

Police-Interview-Room-VideoThe VALT law enforcement video recording solution from IVS is a turnkey server and software video appliance that integrates with standard IP camera technology. Multiple police interrogation and interview rooms can be viewed and recorded simultaneously. All data is routed to a central server (we have video appliances capable of managing up to 50 cameras on a single platform). This eliminates the need of placing bulky and redundant police interview room recording systems throughout the department and provides users with a more reliable system with fewer failure points.

Axis IP cameras can be utilized with our system to record police interview sessions in high-resolution. Both fixed vandal-resistant dome and high definition (HD) covert cameras are available and integrate seamlessly with our application. Multiple cameras may be placed in each room, allowing users to observe and capture different angles. We typically combine our solution with sensitive auto gaining audio equipment that eliminates hum and high-frequency loss. This helps users easily identify what was said even in challenging audio environments.

The VALT video software I/O feature is highly useful for police interrogation recording. This feature allows users to start and stop a recording using a wall mounted push button. Our software is also able to light an LED either in the room or within the button to indicate when a recording is in progress.

 

Easy-to-Use Recording System for Law Enforcement Professionals

The law enforcement interview room recording system by VALT is renowned for its simplicity. Officers and other operators are able to use the system with little to no training. The VALT interview room recording software makes video capture, storage, and playback extremely easy. Police interrogation video playback can be viewed through any common internet browser, with no need for special software or plugins making deployment a snap.

A typical VALT video installation for police recordings can store around 16,000 hours of HD video, ensuring that countless sessions may be stored for extended periods of time. The software also has a flexible built-in retention automating the length of time videos are stored on the system before automatically being purged. Retention rules can be modified based on who or how the video was started and can be changed after the fact for specific recordings by authorized users.

VALT video is recorded in standard MP4 format and uses h.264 compression, minimizing network usage and allowing easy storing and sharing of police interview video sessions. Unlike many other systems, once recorded VALT video has no lag time to render or format video — it is immediately available upon completion for review within our application or for download and export to DVD.

Operators remotely capture police interviews using an iPad or iPhone running our iOS application, and the software automatically syncs the video with the base server either over the departments secure network or when the officer returns department.

FAQs

+-
What is a police interview room recording system?

A police interview room recording system is a video recording software specifically engineered for capturing and documenting interviews conducted in police interview rooms.

+-
Why does a police interview or interrogation room need video recording equipment?

Police video recording systems clearly and accurately record what happens during the interview process.

  • Recordings provide visual evidence of what the interviewee says and how they behave, both of which can be key evidence in court.
  • Video recordings are also useful for training purposes, helping police officers improve how they conduct interviews.
  • Video recordings of police interviews protect the rights of the person being interviewed. Recordings ensure no false claims are made about what happened during an interview and provide visual evidence of all proceedings.
+-
Why is video “marking” important for police video recordings?

Video marking in police interview room recordings allows officers or detectives to denote or ‘mark’ specific points within a recording either during live observation or during the review process. These markers allow users to jump to a specific point in the video easily, similar to chapters in a DVD. Moreover, the marked points can have searchable descriptions associated with them. For example, an officer can mark key points, like precise descriptions of events or confessions. 

Marking key points of the police interview also allows officers to send snippets of video to the District Attorney or other key individuals involved in a case. 

+-
Why is video tagging important for police video recording software?

Tagging police recordings improves video organization. Tagging allows for more efficient searches and video observation and/or reviews based on data like suspect/office name or case number.

+-
How is a police video recording started?

Using the VALT system, video recordings can start within the software from any browser or with the push of a physical start/stop button in or right outside the room.

+-
Who uses the police video recording?

The VALT video recording system is designed to allow any trained user to effectively use and navigate the system. Allowing officers and detectives to review, mark, and tag videos improves overall department efficiency and reduces the burden on IT teams.

Recorded interviews or snippets of recorded interviews become valuable information for District Attorneys or other key individuals on a case, and with non-proprietary playback, VALT makes it easy to securely share videos.

+-
Can police video recording systems be taken on scene?

Yes. IVS has a mobile video recording solution. The BEAM application allows operators to create a mobile police interview recording system for off-site locations.
