The Atom is a professional digital audio recorder with a magnetic neodymium base for deployment to metal surfaces. Each unit is hand-built, rolled in sand grid and baked at temperature for a unique finish that keeps grubby fingerprints at bay. Excellent standby and voice-activated recording times with outstanding 384 KBPS sound quality at 24 kHz. Time and date stamped for evidence. Optional external microphone for extra functionality.
The Atom is a UK hand-built voice-activated recorder to capture incredible sound quality at distances of approx 30-40 feet - and is easily one of the best sound recording devices available. A single ON/OFF recording switch makes user operation very easy, and the magnetic neodymium base provides fast deployment to metal surfaces.
Each Atom Recorder is hand-rolled in sand grit and baked at temperature, and then seal coated for a stunning appearance which also keeps grubby fingerprints at bay.
Fitted with one of the finest microphones, the Atom is extremely sensitive to audio and has been pre-set to record above a -50db sound level (normal room ambience). When recording, the integrated Digital Noise Filter lowers background noise, for example, TV or Radio, to emphasise foreground conversations.
Audio files are automatically compressed together as a single playable file and removed of irrelevant silent durations to keep the file system tidy and minimal without having to trawl through hundreds of separate audio files.
A time and date is stamped when the recording commences to provide evidential proof of an audio timeline.
Catering to the demand of professionals seeking even longer recording times and superior sound resolution, the next generation Atom Endurance is fitted with a larger capacity battery of 3'950 mAh yet adds just 7 mm to the depth. The new technology offers a pinnacle recording rate at 384 KBPS | 24 kHz for ultra-clear audio at even further distances and zero interference on file playback. It is not an exaggeration that conversations can be picked up at 40 feet indoors and 30 feet outdoors.
The battery performance is further increased to approx 17 days to surpass even the most advanced recorders.
Note: Overall time will vary depending on how many times recordings are triggered and how long each recording duration.
The Endurance Atom stores audio files separately in a 24-hour format, rather than a single compressed file, as this is traditionally how Law Enforcement prefer to time stamp audio files for operational use.
The original Atom is suited for most individual and business users and provides excellent sound quality at a fantastic price. Upgrading to the Atom Endurance reflects the improved recording time with pinnacle sound quality.
The Atom Recorders are compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems. No special software to playback audio files. The Atom can be recharged by a computer or by mains power.
No other device on the market supports both an internal microphone and an external microphone connector. The uses of connecting an external microphone to the Atom are explained in the 'More Information' tab.
The Atom can be connected to a Power Bank (not supplied) to increase overall operation time. The Power Bank we offer is 6'700 mAh and uses iSmart technology to apply the correct voltage. The iSmart Power Bank can also recharge smartphones and tablets and is a handy accessory when travelling.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements such as VOX levels, external mic VOX levels, recording format, compression rate and device name etc.
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) is required to recharge the Atom from a mains power. We offer a genuine Apple USB mains plug from the menu above. You may also charge the Atom Recorder from a computer via the supplied USB cable; however, charging times will be longer.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL AND NEW ATOM ENDURANCE?
The original Atom model records outstanding audio and is suitable for the vast majority of customers. In contrast, the new Atom Endurance model is the next generation and aimed at professionals, including Law Enforcement, with the following functions:
HOW DO I CHARGE THE ATOM RECORDER?
Connect the supplied USB cable to the Atom device and then to a computer or a mains power via a USB plug, for example, an Apple USB Plug. Charging time is approx 3-4 hours.
IS THE ATOM RECORDER MAGNETIC?
Yes. A layer of neodymium material is fitted to the base to provide fast deployment capability to metal surfaces.
WHY WOULD I NEED THE ATOM RECORDER?
There are many reasons people need to gather audio evidence; for example, you may need to know who enters your personal space without authorisation. Perhaps you need to gather clear audio evidence for an ongoing dispute to provide the relevant authorities.
WHY WOULD I NEED AN EXTERNAL MICROPHONE?
An external microphone can be connected to the Atom; for example, the recorder's main body can remain out of sight with only the tip of the external microphone 'peeking' out or through carpeting, or an open crack etc. An external microphone is optional but invaluable to the professional user and made of a thin, anti-glare material measuring 125 cm in length and just 4 mm diameter. When connecting the external microphone, the internal microphone is automatically disabled, and the mic sensitivity increases from -50 dB to -60 dB.
HOW FAR CAN THE ATOM PICK UP AUDIO?
Contrary to many sellers that boast a pick-up range of 10 meters+ from audio recorders is an exaggeration. The Atom models can pick up sounds some 30-40 feet from where the unit is deployed. With good quality computer speakers, the playback of audio recordings are fantastically clear. We also recommend the commercial software called 'Boom 3D' by Global Delights, available from the Google / Apple Store, which adds a decent sound and bass enhancement to audio file playback.
DOES THE ATOM RECORD CONTINUOUSLY OR ONLY WHEN SOUND IS DETECTED?
The Atom is programmed to record upon voice activation. This means when the microphone detects sound thresholds above -50 dB (normal room ambience); recording will commence until the sound level drops below the dB threshold.
The original Atom model will store audio recordings to its 8 GB memory as a single WAV file. Regardless of how many times the Atom starts and stops recording, the device cleverly compresses all audio files into one playable file.
The Atom Endurance will record a separate audio file with a 24-hour format time and date for each start and stop recording.
Upon request, the Atom models can be fully programmed to operate in any way that best suits the client.
CAN YOU ELABORATE ON STANDBY AND RECORDING TIMES?
The device uses just 8 mAh of battery per hour while on standby and 120 mAh per hour while recording. Standby time = switched ON and actively monitoring the dB audio levels but not actually recording. Based on the calculations with the original Atom placed on standby for 8 hours (9 am - 5 pm) will only consume 64 mAh of total battery power. When the device is recording over an 8 hour period, the consumption will be much higher, ie, 8x 120 Mah = 960 Mah in total.
The Atom Endurance has a 3'950 mAh battery, which means the overall standby and recording times are triple that of the original Atom model.
For even longer standby times, the Atom can be connected to a special PB-A Cable which connects to any Power Bank. For example, connecting a 6700 mAh power bank can provide 5 times longer standby.
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 stored in the WAV format, which many different audio players support.
ARE THERE ANY VISIBLE LED's WHILE RECORDING?
A brief LED will flash when ready to record. The LED is purposely built inside the Atom and only viewable by looking into the connection port. The LED's can be disabled upon request, although we advise against it.
IS THE AUDIO FILE TIME AND DATE STAMPED?
Yes. The original Atom model will store just one file containing all the recorded audio files spliced together; therefore, the time and date is stamped for that single file. The Atom Endurance model will create a separate time and date stamp for each audio file. The supplied software for Windows and Mac allows you to pre-configure the time and date.
HOW CAN I PLAYBACK RECORDED AUDIO FILES?
Connect the Atom device to a computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will begin recharging the device and assign a drive to the recorder (drive a, b, c etc). Inside the drive contains a 'recordings' folder with the voice-activated recordings.
