This isn't an ordinary calculator, although it may look and function just like one. Its actually a sound activated voice recorder with 75 days standby time, and 65 hours recording time over that period - and a very high quality microphone which is capable of recording clear sound approx 25 feet away. Recordings are stored in MP3 format which is easily playable on a Windows or Mac computer without any special software. An ingeniuos concept in a functional everyday home / office item.
This fully functional desk calculator with solar panel is an ideal solution towards gathering high quality voice activated recordings from within the home and office for evidential purposes. Professionally hand built and integrated within the casing of the Calculator, the recording mechanism when enabled can provide a huge 75 days standby time and a total of 65 hours of actual recording time over that period.
This Calculator Voice Activated Recorder from our range of audio surveillance equipment is a cut above the mustard and can be closely examined and used as a normal functioning digital calculator without revealing its recording capability.
The recording mechanism works independantly of the normal functionality of the Calculator and is enabled separately by a tiny pin. Once enabled, audio is very clear and easily captured some 25 feet away from where the Calculator is placed.
Each recorded audio file can be stamped with a time and date by simply opening the supplied software (Windows only) which then automatically syncs the computer's time and date to the Calculator.
A recently introduced feature (provided on the same Windows software as setting the time and date) allows you to adjust the audio sensitivity between HQ (high quality) and XHQ (extra high quality). The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power when recording and is best suited to smaller rooms. The higher XHQ setting increases the microphone sensitivity and is best used when recording in larger rooms.
The Calculator is fitted with an eight (8) GB flash memory which is enough to store 144 hours of voice activated MP3 audio encoding @ 64 KBPS for a sharper, clearer sound. Should recording be triggered for a few hours a day, the Calculator can exceed weeks of use before a recharge is required.
To play back audio, the Calculator must be opened (accessory supplied) and the unit connected to a Windows or Mac computer. No special software is required to play the audio files. When connected to a computer the Calculator will automatically begin to recharge back to full performance.
This Calculator Voice Activated Recorder is a fantastic way to incorporate a functional and practical item into a room environment and knowing that whenever the need arises, you have peace of mind of a reliable audio recording product.
CAN I USE THE CALCULATOR AS NORMAL?
Yes. The Calculator is fully functional and operates separately to the recording aspect.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TELL WHEN THE CALCULATOR IS RECORDING?
No. The Calculator has no moving parts, external LED's, beeps or other indicators that would bring unwanted attention.
CAN I RECORD AUDIO AT THE SAME TIME AS USING THE CALCULATOR?
Yes. The voice activated recording mechanism operates completely separately to the normal functionality of the calculator so you (or others) can use the calculator as normal. It should be noted that tapping on the buttons of the Calculator whilst recording will record that sensation on the audio file.
IS TIME AND DATE SUPPORTED?
HOW GOOD IS THE RECORDING QUALITY?
The microphone is very high quality therefore, you can expect conversations to be recorded very clearly and without audio interference (unless you or somebody is tapping on the buttons). Audio can be recorded some 25 feet away from where the Calculator is placed.
DO I NEED ANY SPECIAL KIND OF SOFTWARE TO PLAY AUDIO FILES?
No. Each audio file is stored in MP3 format which is compatible with many standard Windows and Mac media players. We do however, recommend downloading the FREE VLC Player from videolan.org which supports all kinds of audio / video media.
HOW LONG WILL THE RECORDING LAST BEFORE I NEED TO RECHARGE THE CALCULATOR?
A fully charged battery can power the Calculator for up to 75 days (standby) over which period can record for 65 hours voice activation. Each recorded audio file is labeled in sequence 001, 002, 003 etc. In real terms, if recording a few hours per day the Calculator can easily remain powered for a few weeks before a recharge is required.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO ADJUST THE MICROPHONE SO IT DOESNT DETECT REALLY SENSITVE ENVIRONMENTS?
Yes. Supplied is a software for Window's computers which not only allows you to set the time and date, but also adjust the quality recording between High Quality and Extra High Quality, but also adjust the sensitivity (increase / decrease) microphone level.
