Announcing CEDAR Trinity 3 - CEDAR's flagship audio surveillance system

CEDAR Trinity 3

4 December 2017

We are proud to announce the immediate availability of CEDAR Trinity 3, which extends the existing CEDAR Trinity surveillance system and incorporates further enhancements implemented in direct response to requests from customers in the fields of law enforcement, security and counter-terrorism.

Introducing CEDAR Trinity Off-line

Three variants of CEDAR Trinity are now available: CEDAR Trinity Server, CEDAR Trinity Satellite and CEDAR Trinity Off-line. All three run on standard 64-bit Windows PCs, laptops and tablets running Windows® 7 or later. Windows® 10 is recommended.

As before, the Server and, if connected, its Satellites are designed primarily for monitoring, enhancing and transcribing live audio feeds - in other words, performing all the tasks necessary to collect evidence while the event of interest is happening, and to provide immediate intelligence to rapid response teams. The Off-line system, as the name implies, has been designed for performing the same tasks on existing audio files recorded at some time in the past and held on devices such as hard drives, memory sticks, CDs and DVDs.

Other improvements

Depending upon the variant installed, CEDAR Trinity can monitor and record live feeds for days, weeks, months or even years, load existing audio files, replay and enhance all or any part of a recording, and allow multiple users to access feeds and recordings using a local area network. Users may also log and transcribe events of interest while continuing live recording, export audio to .WAV files and audio CDs, and verify the integrity of any CEDAR Trinity project or archive for evidential purposes.

In earlier versions, only 8 or 24 audio streams could be 'live' at any given time, but this has now been extended so that CEDAR Trinity itself imposes no limitations; the upper limit is determined only by the capabilities of the host computer and its I/O hardware. This means that multiple listening and recording operations can be undertaken on a single networked system - perhaps monitoring probes in hotels or domestic rooms, microphones in interview rooms and live streams from automobiles. Operators can view these channels simultaneously, recording as many as required, switching with a single click to any feed that seems to be displaying activity of interest.

In addition, CEDAR Trinity Server now supports the AudioTel (Security Research) Spyder. Designed specifically for multi-channel audio surveillance systems, the Spyder can stream up to eight channels of high-quality audio over an Ethernet connection, and is now available as a CEDAR Trinity 3 Server input device.
