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
The 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.

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.

The user-friendly Valt police interview video capture software easily replaces antiquated VHS, DVD and adapted DVR technology. Metadata is attached to each police interview session, enabling authorized users to locate individual sessions quickly, catalog them with further data, and search and retrieve any recording from a desktop computer, tablet, or other network enabled device. Prompt video availability is often important in a law enforcement video recording system. 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.
