Does this device record sound?
Yes, there is a stereo microphone within this device. The microphone will be able to clearly record voices within a general 7 metre radius.
Is the video recorded good enough to be able to recognise faces?
Yes, it is very easy to identify people on the footage as long as there is enough light in the environment that the recording takes place. The button camera uses a high quality lens, so crisp imagery is assured.
If video footage obtained was needed as evidence in a court case, would this package be up to the task?
Evidential video footage requires time and date stamping on the video to be accepted. There is an option to switch the time and date stamping off, but as long as this is switched on then the footage should be admissible in evidence.
Can I use the MP4 recording unit with different cameras?
Yes, the recorder will accept both analogue and digital feeds from many types of video camera.
Could I use this system in a static situation rather than a body-worn application?
Yes, the MP4 recorder has motion activation facility and although battery powered, will still operate in record mode when connected to the mains supply, so a long term static deployment could be considered.
Can I play back the video footage with audio on the player itself
Yes, this can be played back on the MP4 recorder/Player and as the unit has an in-built speaker, then audio can be heard as well.
