The British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General Chooses FTR Digital Recording Solution for Provincewide Upgrade.

PHOENIX -- FTR Gold will replace Sony and Lanier tape recorders in 296 courtrooms throughout British Columbia

FTR Limited (FTR), the leading global supplier of multimedia recording and content management solutions for courts, hearing rooms and public meeting venues, today announced that the British Columbia Ministry of the Attorney General has awarded Acrodex Inc. (Acrodex), one of its audio/video integration partners, a contract to replace Sony and Lanier tape recorders in 296 courtrooms provincewide with an FTR-based digital recording and management solution.

The Ministry had been evaluating several vendors to upgrade the courts to digital recording, and solicited competitive bids in September 2004. Acrodex was awarded the contract based on its proposed solution, which is built around FTR Gold, FTR's digital audio recording and management tool. FTR-based solutions have become a proven standard in the market because they allow courts to upgrade to digital recording across the enterprise without requiring radical changes in established organizational procedures.

During the pilot phase, Ministry officials were impressed with how easy FTR Gold was to install, use and maintain. Each installation includes a versatile FTR DMX8 USB Mixer which combines the functions of an 8-input to 4-channel mixer with a 4-channel audio encoder card. This implementation allows authorized court employees seamless access to recorded audio across the court network and streamlines the transcription preparation and management process.

According to Steve Townsend, president & CEO of FTR, the Ministry's choice of FTR Gold demonstrates that FTR's multimedia recording and content management solutions are the ideal choice for enterprise applications. "Our 13,000+ installations include entire cities, counties, states/provinces, and even entire countries," he said. "Our products have become the de facto standard for court recording applications because they are easily scalable across the enterprise, easy to implement and cost-effective to maintain."
