KONEXX UNVEILS USB PHONE 2 PC

SAN DIEGO, CA, June 1, 2004 -- Konexx (http://www.konexx.com) has introduced USB Phone 2 PC-Law Enforcement. Alan Gutzmer, Konexx Vice President - Operations, made the announcement.

USB Phone 2 PC-Law Enforcement is an innovative recording solution consisting of the USB Phone 2 PC interface and recording software developed specifically for use by law enforcement agencies. The USB Phone 2 PC interface is a combination telephone to computer interface and sound card combination. It obtains its power from the computer's USB port and doesn't require any additional power source, which makes it ideal for use in the field.

USB Phone 2 PC-Law Enforcement is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98 SE, Millennium, 2000 or XP.

"USB Phone 2 PC-Law Enforcement is not only easy to use and install, the product can be used in a variety of applications by law enforcement agencies," said Gutzmer. "The portability and ability to record from the supplied external microphone facilitates field use, including patrol vehicles."

Gutzmer added that since copies of recordings are digital, there is no degradation introduced in the copy process, commonplace with tape duplication. Critical segments of recordings can be indexed and played immediately, without having to fast-forward or rewind through less relevant portions. Files can be distributed by email as file attachments, so that law enforcement officers can distribute copies to colleagues or to prosecutors almost immediately, keeping everyone in the loop on the progress of a case. Conversations can also easily be recorded for training purposes.

"As more law enforcement agencies move toward keeping case records on electronic media, such as recordable CD-ROM, this allows files to be kept in one place without having to convert from one type (tape recordings) to another (digital format)," he said.

Key capabilities of USB Phone 2 PC-Law Enforcement include:

  • Record telephone calls digitally to the computer for easy storage and distribution.
  • Record meetings or interviews using the supplied external microphone.
  • Portability -- record in the field or the office.
  • Enables dictation of reports or important daily activities that can be played back, emailed or transcribed.
  • Original recorded conversation is encapsulated between "voice stamps" to ensure the integrity of the original recording for evidentiary purposes.
  • Bookmarks can be inserted during recording or playback for easy access or reference to important points in the recorded conversation
