SONICLEAR RECORDING SYSTEMS - Meeting 9
Meeting Recorder 9 is designed for 'an individual board secretary or clerk to record meetings and review recordings for preparing minutes or transcribing'. The software is used on a Windows PC or laptop to provide an 'easy to use' audio recorder for meetings, briefings and non-evidential interviews. It is supplied on a CD and with the supplied USB key can be used as a 'floating' solution for use on any computer or locked to a particular computer. The Soniclear 9 removes the need for note taking and prevents any disputes as to what has been said.
The supplied microphone is omni directional and is 'ideal where a group of people are present'. It is unobtrusive and can be moved between computers.
High quality mono / stereo digital recording ensures maximum clarity; there are options to set the level of quality required. Audio recordings are saved automatically to prevent accidental erasure. Recordings of meetings may be shared; they can be 'burned' to disk to provide a copy or e-mailed or uploaded.
