Technology has placed near unlimited resources at our fingertips. With one click, you can watch any episode, read any article, or hear any song. Today, missing out is obsolete. The same now holds true in conferencing. Whether they missed the meeting or need to access content for review, the CONTEX Digital Record and Playback (CDRP) 3.0 system allows all participants to listen to conference playback at their convenience.
In the same spirit, conferencing technology has rapidly evolved to keep customers from missing out. Live conference recording with playback with CONTEX Digital Record and Playback (CDRP) 3.0 system allows participants to experience a conference long after it has concluded. From individuals who are unable to attend a meeting to those who need to access the call content for later reference, all participants can listen to the recorded content at their convenience.
CONTEX Digital Recording and Playback (CDRP) Standard Features
The CDRP can function as a stand-alone system or integrate seamlessly with the powerful CONTEX® Summit or Summit Olympus™ media processor. Unlike other recording options on the market, the scalable CDRP functions as both a recording and a playback platform, with hybrid ports that can be used for either function.
It features a VoIP network interface and provides comprehensive control through an easy-to-use, web-based interface. The software-based architecture runs in a Linux® operating system and facilitates growth by only requiring installation on Asterisk® server hardware.
- Manual Record and Playback: During a conference, CDRP recording can be initiated at any time. Once recordings are stored in the system, authorized users can initiate playback. Each recoding entry contains details that include recording, playback, and listener information, which can then be reviewed, imported, downloaded, and published.
- Automatic Record and Playback: When integrated with the Summit or Olympus system, the CDRP can initiate recording or playback automatically, adding another level of convenience to the recording and playback experience.
- Playback Control: The CDRP enables listeners to manage playback by skipping forward, backward, return to the beginning of a recording, adjust the volume, play the meeting information, and listen to instructions using DTMF commands.
- Convenience: A listener can begin playback at any time – even as other participants are listening to the same recording, which enables effortless flexibility.
- Scalability: The CDRP features 24 ports of direct recording/playback capacity, which can be expanded to over 240 simultaneous direct audio connections. The web interface can scale up to 100 user connections.
- Reporting Capability: Generates metrics and statistics on component utilization, and a range of other reports including number of calls, average times, login and access reports, length of call, and recording reports.
- Accessibility: Supports multiple languages for accessibility and inclusivity and can be configured for system-wide use or per user.
- Security: Utilizes secure login with specified user roles to ensure safety and security.
- Archiving: Robust archiving tool with files stored in the standard MP3 file format.
- Connectivity: Easily connects to multiple CONTEX systems.
- Network: VoIP network Interface and PSTN support.
