The Liberty Digital Court Recorder is an audio/video recording program designed to run on a standard PC using the Windows operating system. The Liberty solution can record and playback multiple channels of audio and video. The system also includes bookmark and text notes features that allow tab stops for instant cuing and text to be embedded directly into the resulting recording files.
Instead of using analog tapes, the Liberty system records the audio and optionally the video from the proceedings to a PC’s hard drive. The hard drive may be located on either the local PC or on a central server elsewhere in a network. After a recording is complete, the file may be saved as a PDF file with the associated notes, cue points and media (audio and optionally video). The recordings may also be transcribed or moved to any other PC-compatible storage device. The files may be moved throughout a network just like any other type of file.
