- UK Patent "Secure Digital Recording"

AV Niche supports the digital revolution with the changes that are occurring in the migration from analogue to digital recording technology within the Criminal Justice System. AV Niche pioneered the digital recording of interviews onto removable digital media.

In 2004 AV Niche were granted a UK Patent, GB2387956, for "Secure Digital Recording".

"Secure Digital Recording" relates to the digital recording process only being allowed to commence when certain criteria and conditions have been met. These include confirmation that the video and audio signals to be recorded are detected as being present, the correct number and type of recording media to be recorded are detected as being present together with confirmation that all the recording media are blank and free from any previous recording.

Additional patents have been granted in Australia, South Africa and New Zealand with applications pending in Europe, USA, Canada, India and others.

- Digital Network "NPIA ISIS" friendly

AV Niche can provide a fully integrated digital evidential recording network solution to the Criminal Justice Sector which is "NPIA ISIS" friendly. An implemented network can be located within any single building, a local area, a region or even nationally. A fully integrated digital evidential recording network is able to support and provide audio and audio / visual recording back up for interview rooms, charge desks, custody suites, identification parades, evidential content input with the additional provision of "on line" monitored officer training, video on demand together with a complete administration audit of the Criminal Justice process. Within the network are workflow management solutions enabling Simple Speedy Summary Justice. A secure and controlled access to the network can also be offered to other Government Agencies such as the Crown Prosecution and Court Services thus providing the desired "end to end" digital evidential recording network. The "NPIA ISIS" friendly network will support the entire Criminal Justice System in both the present and future whilst addressing key objectives identified in the Bichard enquiry and the more recently published 2008 Sir Ronnie Flanagan Review on Policing.
