FTR Recording Suite

The gold standard in digital court recording.

For  The  Record’s flagship suite of software tools for capturing and managing the court record sets the digital court-recording industry standard.   

FTR Recording Suite 7.7 continues to expand these industry-leading capabilities,
enhancing the live streaming functionality with configurability and improving the live listening and confidence monitoring experience for court monitors and court reporters working remotely.    

In the latest version, live streaming features have been enhanced to reduce networking overhead and provide a better live listening and confidence monitoring experience in FTR Monitor. Courts can not only directly stream the court recording to FTR Player in real time to any authorized user on the court network, but also choose how they stream the content.

This configurability for live streaming ensures courts have more flexibility to manage the requirements of modern proceedings and any potential connectivity limitations. As such, courts can choose to stream both video and audio, or audio alone, and they can choose between high or lower definition streaming depending on the network. 

Additionally, reduced delay and loading time within FTR Player provide a reliable live-listening experience, even during poor network connectivity.  

With HD video recording (up to 4 channels) from more non-IP video sources, 16 channels of high-fidelity audio, and the reduced bandwidth required to capture both, FTR Recording Suite is the comprehensive capture solution for courts committed to meeting demand beyond their traditional four walls.
