Deluxe Pen Voice Recorder
A seemingly ordinary ballpoint writing pen is actually a professional digital voice recorder in disguise. Place the pen in your pocket or leave it in a room or vehicle to capture audio evidence. Voice-activated and manual recording modes. 30-days standby time (voice-activation) and 24 hours continuous recording. Time and date stamp as evidence. Record quality up to 44 kHz (PCM) for super-clear audio plus tweak the microphone sensitivity level. The pen is a stunning example of quality and reliability that you will be proud to own.
Voice Activated and Continuous Recording; With 30 Days Standby + Time | Date Stamp
Boasting an incredible standby time of 30 days, this real ballpoint Pen Voice Recorder offers everything you need for gathering discreet audio evidence from inside a room, a vehicle, or for conversations of a meeting, an interview, or a dispute within the home or workplace. In fact, because the Deluxe Pen Voice Recorder has a normal appearance, it will pass visual inspection for complete peace of mind.
There are no external buttons, sliding clips, moving parts, markings or recording indicators. You can confidently leave the pen in full view without drawing attention. And the best part? Recording ON | OFF is very clever under natural movement.
It should be noted that the pen has a 14.5 mm circumference; however, because writing pens are manufactured in all shapes and sizes, it's a fair assessment to say the design of the pen would fly past suspicion.
TIME AND DATE RECORDINGS
The Deluxe Pen now comes with easy-to-use software that gives you the option to stamp each audio file with the time and date of when the file was created. The supplied software for Windows computers is super easy to use.
ADJUSTABLE SOUND QUALITY
The software will also adjust the audio quality between PCM (highest 44 kHz quality) and XHQ (extra high quality), and HQ (high quality). The lower setting (HQ) will draw less power when recording and is best suited to confined areas like a vehicle. The higher PCM setting is best used when recording in larger rooms, or you want stunningly clear audio.
ADJUSTABLE SVOS LEVEL
Use the software to adjust the microphone sensitivity. For example: lowering the sensitivity of the microphone reduces triggering the recording of unnecessary sounds like a cough, passing traffic or a creaking door. Increasing the microphone sensitivity will heighten the pen's detection capability.
ON-DEMAND AND VOICE ACTIVATION RECORDING
2x recording modes:
- Record 'On-Demand' (manual) - carry the pen out of sight - in a pocket or leave it casually on a desk. Start and stop recording any time under natural body movement. With 24 hours of recording time, it's a perfect surveillance product for capturing audio continuously.
- Voice Activated Recording - place the pen inside a room or a vehicle (or any indoor environment), and it is ready to record when sound is detected - for up to 30 days! If you believe somebody is entering your property while you are absent, or perhaps you need to capture the highest audio of an upcoming event - then voice-activation is a must.
CONNECT TO COMPUTER FOR SUPER LONG RECORDING
When the pen is recording and connected to a computer, it can record continuously for 288 hours until its 8 GB storage memory is full. Or, put the pen into voice-activation mode to extend the standby time to many weeks or months!
SUPER SENSITIVE MICROPHONE
The pen records each audio file in MP3 format @ 44 kHz (PCM) for a superior and clear sound than ever before. Furthermore, the built-in ALC automatically balances sound for a perfect audio level.
INVISIBLE ON | OFF RECORDING SWITCH
We understand that gathering audio evidence will sometimes need to pass the most observant person/s. For this reason, the pen offers a unique recording mechanism that can be enabled under natural movement.
WINDOWS AND MAC COMPATIBLE
The pen can connect to any Windows or Mac computer. You can play audio files and recharge the pen on any computer; however, if you wish to use the supplied software to set the time and date and adjust the sound and microphone level, these actions can only be done on a Windows computer.
The pen's 8 GB memory can be used as a Mass Storage Device for holding spreadsheets like Excel, Word, Powerpoint or photos, documents, videos etc.
The Deluxe Pen Voice Recorder is an excellent investment for all your audio recordings, guaranteeing the highest quality, reliability, and performance rarely found elsewhere.
ARE THERE RECORDING INDICATORS OR LED's THAT MAY AROUSE SUSPICION?
No. There are no buttons or sliding clips. In fact, the pen can be openly displayed. It should be noted that the pen has a slightly thicker diameter than our other pen recorders; however, pens come in all shapes and sizes and does not look out of the ordinary.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT RECORDING MODES OF THE PEN?
There are 2x recording modes depending on your preference. For example, if you are about to go into an important meeting or a face-to-face conversation or perhaps a conference chat around a table, manual (continuous) recording would be the best choice. If, for example, you were absent from the room or wanted to catch conversations in a car and did not know when such conversations may take place, then voice-activated recording would be the better choice.
DOES THE PEN SUPPORT TIME AND DATE RECORDING?
Yes. The Pen is capable of time and dating each recorded file as evidence if required. The time and date procedure can only be set on a Windows computer. However, the default setting of the pen, including audio file playback and charging, can be done on any computer (Windows or Mac).
CAN I ADJUST THE SOUND QUALITY AND SENSITIVITY?
Yes. The supplied software (Windows only) is supplied with software that allows the pen to be adjusted between PCM | HQ and XHQ quality and increase | decrease the microphone sensitivity.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE TO START | STOP RECORDING?
The design of the pen does not make this obvious. A subtle 'twist' mechanism will enable | disable the recording and even be actioned under the scrutiny of people around you.
HOW DO I SELECT THE RECORDING MODE?
Unscrew the pen to reveal the charging USB (direct connection without messy cables) and the recording mode switch. Pre-select your preferred recording mode (manual or voice-activation) and screw the pen back together. It's that easy!
HOW LONG WILL THE PEN RECORD FOR?
On the highest PCM audio setting, a fully charged battery will provide 24 hours of continuous or 30 days of voice-activated recording. This is a substantial length of standby time. Bear in mind that 30 days standby time will reduce in increments when recording takes place.
WHAT IS THE STORAGE CAPACITY OF THE PEN?
8 GB. This is enough to hold 288 hours of recordable audio. You can use the pen's 8 GB of memory to store documents and other private material.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO POWER THE PEN THROUGH A COMPUTER?
Yes. When you activate recording and then connect the pen to a computer - the computer will purposely not recognise the pen, so people using the computer will be unaware. While connected, the pen is being powered off the computer and capable of recording for up to 288 hours.
WHAT RECORDING FORMAT ARE THE AUDIO FILES CREATED IN?
Each recorded audio file is stored in MP3 format @ 44 kHz (PCM). MP3 is encoded and suitable for all computers.
