ForTheRecord (FTR) digital recording solutions implemented in 352 courtrooms across Slovenia
Phoenix, AZ, June 20, 2011 — ForTheRecord (FTR), a global leader in digital recording and content management solutions for judicial and public safety venues, today announced that all 352 court rooms in Slovenia have been outfitted with the FTR Gold suite of products. Project “Audio Recording in Courts” is part of E-justice projects in Slovenia, and is co-financed by the European Social Fund.
FTR Reporter and FTR Mixer were the key products from the FTR Gold family that were leased by the Ministry of Justice through FTR partner and audio integrator, AVC Group based in Slovenia. In addition, the courts also leased copies of TheRecord Manager and FTR Monitor software solutions to facilitate superior management of their digital recordings.
Jani Medic, from AVC, who led the team that designed and project-managed the complex installation said, “The FTR suite of products met the requirements of what we were looking for almost perfectly. We needed to record up to eight independent channels, all of which had to be fully backed up. In addition, the recordings were required to be shared amongst judges, lawyers and transcription services, while providing security, usage tracking and archiving. The FTR solution had all of these components and was able to be customized.”
According to Daniel Bennett, Executive Vice President of FTR, “The courts in Slovenia were looking for major productivity gains along with enhanced services for the judiciary and legal practitioners. The FTR system was tested against stringent requirements and proved to be able to deliver the type of results that the Ministry was looking for.” Further, he added, “Slovenia now has one of the world’s most efficient court recording work flow systems and is well placed to meet future demands for open and transparent administration of justice.”
