Announcing CEDAR Trinity 3 - CEDAR's flagship audio surveillance system
CEDAR Trinity Satellite
CEDAR Trinity Server is a very powerful surveillance tool, but it would be even better if many listeners could access each of the live feeds, perhaps with some people monitoring events as they happen while others inspect past events of interest.
That's no problem at all because every Server can host a potentially unlimited number of CEDAR Trinity Satellites.
A Satellite doesn't contain the record service, but is connected to its host Server (or Servers) across a network to access audio assets. Since there's no limit to the number of Satellites that can be connected to the central Server, multiple users can address each of the audio streams, whether to monitor the incoming audio and perform real-time speech enhancement, or to listen to and enhance past events for logging and transcription. To the operator, the only difference between the Server and the Satellite is the location of the recorder - whether it's local to the system that the operator is using (a Server) or accessed across the network (a Satellite). The user interface is otherwise identical.
Sometimes, it will be desirable to allow some operators to work on particular live streams or assets, while other operators will have access to different streams and assets. Again, this is no problem. The system administrator can decide which Satellite operators have access to which assets so that multiple teams can work on specific assets on a single system.
It's fast, efficent, and very flexible.
