Atom Magnetic Voice Activation Recorder
The Atom is a professional digital audio recorder with a magnetic base for fast deployment to metal surfaces. Record 5 - 60 hours of voice activated audio from a single charge. Hand rolled in sand, baked at temperature and then coated it's unique texture helps keep grubby fingerprints at bay. The Atom is fitted with one of the finest microphones to capture exceptionally clear audio and a time and date can be applied on both Windows and Mac computers.
Magnetic Sound Activated Recorder; with Long Standby and Recording Times
The Atom Voice Activated Recorder is hand-built in the UK to a very high standard and is suitable for gathering audio evidence within a room or vehicle with stunning performance. A single low profile ON / OFF switch puts the Atom into voice activated recording and eliminates being turned on or off by accident. A thin neodymium magnetic strip is applied to the base of the device for fast deployment to metal areas.
The Atom Recorder is rolled in sand and baked at a temperature to form a slightly rough textured finish and then seal coated to help keep grubby fingerprint marks at bay.
IMPROVED ATOM II
The newly upgraded Atom II is fitted with a higher capacity internal 1300 mAh fully rechargeable battery which uses a super efficient power management of just 03 mAh per hour standby time (standby = switched ON but not recording) and 120 mAh per hour when recording. This equates to approx 25 days standby time whilst still maintaining a small footprint of just 80 (L) x 40 (W) x 15 (D).
It is now possible to connect an external Power Bank (not supplied) to the Atom II using the new PB-A Cable which will substancially increase the standby and recording times. For example; connecting a power bank with a 6700 mAh capacity would provide approx 39+ days standby time and a voice activated recording time of 6+ days.
This is quite exceptional performance for such a small device and it would be a fair assessment to say the Atom Recorder can rival any other high end audio recording device.
VOICE ACTIVATED AUDIO RECORDING
The Atom Recorder is fitted with one of the finest microphones available. The microphone has been preset to the threshold of -50db and a special harmonic buffer helps to ween out unwanted background noises for example: TV and radio whilst emphasising on foreground conversations.
Here is the clever part which also saves storage space. The Atom Recorder does not create hundreds of seperate audio files for each voice activation but instead automatically splices all the voice activated files together into just a single playable audio file.
TIME AND DATE RECORDING
A time and date stamp is applied upon powering the Atom, providing proof of deployment. The software for setting the time and date on both Windows and Mac computers is supplied should you need to update it for BST (British Summer Time). Please note due to the Atom recording one (1) file containing all the seperate audio files spliced together, the time and date is stamped for that single file.
WINDOWS AND MAC COMPATIBLE
The Atom Recorder is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. To recharge the device, and / or play back recordings, simply connect the Atom device to your computer via the supplied USB cable to access the recorded folder. Audio recordings can also be archived or emailed to other recipients in the normal manner.
OPTIONAL EXTERNAL MICROPHONE
Measuring 52 cm long with a 4 mm microphone head, connection to the Atom is easy via the external mic input. The cable itself is machine moulded, noise-free and super flexible, providing you with an anti-glare finish and a clip for securing to material or other objects. Once the external microphone is connected the internal preset -50 db microphone level is automatically increased to -60 db to enhance sensitivity.
It should be noted the Atom Recorder works fantastic with its own internal microphone and an external microphone is not required for general use.
CUSTOM DESIGNED ATOM MODEL
Please contact us to discuss your requirements such as VOX levels, external mic VOX levels, recording format, compression rate and device name etc.
The Atom Magnetic Voice Activated Recorder is a wise investment for personal or business use.
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) is required to recharge the Atom from a mains power or you may optionally purchase a genuine Apple USB mains plug from the menu above. A USB mains plug is not a necessity and the Atom can be charged through a computer too.
HOW DO I CHARGE THE ATOM RECORDER?
Charging is done by connecting the device to a mains power (using a USB mains plug) or through a computer USB port.
IS THE ATOM MAGNETIC?
Yes. The thin layer of magnetic neodymium material is applied to the base of the device which provides additional deployment capabilities for example; under a vehicle seat, underneath a desk or table or behind metal surfaces.
WHY WOULD I NEED AN ATOM RECORDER?
There are many reasons why people use voice recorders for example: you may need to find out who enters your room premises when you are not there, or perhaps you may need to gather audio evidence of an ongoing home or office dispute to provide the relevant authorities.
DO YOU SUPPLY AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE?
Yes. The external microphone is made of a thin, flexible anti-glare cable of 52 cm length and 4 mm diameter microphone tip. We can make any cable length upon request. External microphones are useful for concealment of the Atom's body so only the microphone peeks out through material or a open crack in the ceiling, wall etc. Connecting the external microphone will automatically disable the internal microphone and heighten the sensitivity from -50 db to -60 db.
It should be noted the Atom Recorder works excellent with the internal microphone and connecting an external microphone is not required for general use.
DOES THE ATOM RECORD CONTINUOUSLY OR UPON SOUND DETECTION?
The Atom is programmed to record upon voice activation. This means when the microphone detects sound above -50 db, the Atom recorder will silently commence recording until the audio drops below the threshold . All recorded audio stored from the period when it was deployed is compressed as one (1) single playable audio file to the Atom's internal eight (8) GB of memory.
Please note we can modify all aspects of the device so if you prefer continuous recording we can program that but voice activated is better for the majority of uses.
CAN YOU ELABORATE FURTHER ON THE STANDBY AND RECORDING TIMES?
The Atom uses a low power battery management of just 03 mAh per hour (standby) and 120 mAh per hour (recording). Bench tested and based on these calculations the Atom II can achieve a maximum battery performance of 25 days standby time and recording times between 5 - 60 hours.
If you require longer standby and recording times, the Atom II is fitted with a PB-A Connector which allows any Power Bank to be connected via the PB-A Cable (available from the menu above). For example; connecting a 6700 mAh power bank can provide up to 39+ days standby time and voice activated recording for 6+ days.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD A SPECIAL AUDIO RECORDER FOR MY REQUIREMENTS?
Yes. Please contact us and let's talk.
WHAT AUDIO FORMAT ARE THE FILES SAVED IN?
Recording files are created and stored in standard .WAV format which is supported by many different audio players.
ARE THERE ANY VISIBLE LED's WHEN RECORDING?
An LED will indicate when the Atom device is being charged, and a short LED will flash when it is about to record. The use of an LED is to show you exactly what is happening whilst being very subtle without bringing unwanted attention. We can disable LED's but we advise against it.
IS THE AUDIO FILE TIME AND DATE STAMPED?
Yes. And the function is very easy to set for both Windows and Mac. Please note due to the Atom recording one (1) file which contains all the seperate recorded audio files spliced together, the time and date is stamped for that single file.
HOW CAN I PLAY BACK THE AUDIO FILES?
Simply connect the Atom device to your Windows / Mac computer using the supplied USB cable. Once connected, your computer will begin recharging the device and at the same time the computer will assign a drive to the recorder (drive a, b, c etc). Inside the drive will contain a folder labelled 'Recordings' and inside this folder will contain just one (1) audio file compressing all voice activated recordings which can be played through your media player without any special software.
