Complete 8 Microphone Turnkey courtroom recording system with four separate channel\tracks Solution 

We combined state-of-the-art digital courtroom recording and hard archiving.  Get 8 Uni-directional microphones spread out around the courtroom ensures complete coverage of every word. Each of these microphones has a pickup range of 30 feet (ca. 9 m). Also, included is the transcription kit, which contains a USB foot-pedal, headset and 4 track transcription software.

 The Martel DM246 V2 is the Next generation of 4 channel standalone court room recorders & recording equipment. It is the direct replacement for the discontinued Sony BM-246 and Lanier Advocate 4 courtroom recorders.

Bonus Case

The Martel DM246 V2 Four Channel Recorder is composed of a special voice recording system that will capture every low volume voice, even in a noisy courtroom environment. The DM246 V2 has real-time confidence monitoring via headphones and "live" VU meter graphs, knob individual gain, and monitoring controls. Additionally, it has the ability to control each channel individually, isolating the microphone you want to hear by itself. It has AC and battery backup operation, plus built-in microphones that make it the worlds' only reliable 4 channel recorder available today for courtroom recording.

Tired of computer recording software that doesn't work, or have errors causing you to lose the entire record? We have the non-computer solution. Never worry about windows errors while recording, since it isn't a computer. Numerous Major Court Reporting Firms in Washington DC place large orders to outfit their reporters who cover congressional hearings.

The DM246 V2 was created specifically as a replacement for your 4 track court tape recorders. It has several key distinct advantages to Court agencies: Records 4 separate tracks of audio. Burns directly to a DVD for archiving. Record 22 hours of 4 track audios and download the case # or docket to an external USB hard drive for long term storage.

Voice Writers are using the DM246 V2 as well. You can record the mask on channel 1 and the deposition or courtroom on the other 3 channels. Since you record in standard .wav format you can easily load the channel one into a voice recognition software such as dragon and get high accuracy voice recognition.

Today there is only one standalone Digital 4 channel court room recorder with the ability to cover an entire court room. You can add up to 8 separate Court room microphones into the DM246 V2 court room recorder. We must stress that we are making only very limited quantities.

    We have 12 of the DM246 Court Room Recorders in our system, 6/9/2009

    Posted by Donna O'Connor on 3rd Jun 2014

    We love the 4 channel courtroom recorder DM246. We outfitted our entire court system with them. We saved $4000 on each court room. All the other system were $6000 and up. This is a real bargain at $1595.00. I would recommended this court room recorder to record in court. We replaced a number of the sony bm246 tape recorders and Lanier advocate.
