CEDAR Trinity - Satellite

CEDAR Trinity Satellite

The Satellite program is the means by which an operator accesses the assets held on a Recorder. Depending upon the permissions granted by the Administrator, a Satellite (whether running on the same PC as the Recorder or remotely via a network) allows the operator to monitor and enhance audio, add events (text notes), as well as export and archive audio. All network communication between CEDAR Trinity systems is encrypted using AES256. The key is a random number unique to each connection session.

There are many occasions when you might want multiple listeners to be able to access the Recorder, perhaps with some people monitoring events as they happen while others inspect past events of interest. That's no problem at all because every Recorder can host a potentially unlimited number of CEDAR Trinity Satellites.

Since there's no limit to the number of Satellites that can be connected to a given Recorder, multiple users can address each of the audio streams, whether to monitor the incoming audio and perform real-time speech enhancement, or to listen to and enhance past events for logging and transcription. To the operator, the only difference between a standalone system and a PC running a Satellite is the location of the Recorder - whether it's local to the computer that the operator is using or accessed across the network. The user interface is otherwise identical.

Sometimes, it will be desirable to allow some operators to work on particular live streams or assets, while other operators will have access to different streams and assets. Again, this is no problem. The system administrator can decide which operators have access to which assets so that multiple teams can work on within a single system.

In addition, transcription can be aided by the use of a suitable USB footpedal, which can control facilities such as play/pause, fast forward and fast rewind or slow playback to leave your hands free for typing.

It's fast, efficent, and very flexible.
