Recordings Where You Need Them Most

Let Your Tools Work For You

Reduce how much time you spend in your logging recorder by moving recordings in and out to other systems or people automatically.

Have a solution you want us to integrate with? Our API makes it easy. Contact us to get the process started.

CentralSquare CAD
Professional (coming soon)
Once a CAD event is closed, all phone and radio recordings are automatically packaged, and a link to the appropriate media is automatically added into the CAD system for that incident number.

  1. Find your recordings via one of 14 search/filter features
  2. If needed, annotate the audio/video using bookmarks and tag by incident # for easy grouping
  3. Download all related recordings at once, either individually or grouped
  4. Audio, and any associated metadata (including RapidSOS data), downloads in a concise ZIP file
  5. That file can easily be saved to a shared network location, online location like Google Drive or OneDrive, burned to a USB stick, or emailed.

Ways to Search & Filter


Recording Software Features

Logging recorder redaction tagging bookmarks

Spend Less Time

Searching For RecordsReviewing RecordsRedacting AudioDownloading RecordsSearching For Records

  • Search for records with one of 14 methods

  • Use chain, repeat, and variable speed for seemless examination

  • Tag records for easy grouping

  • Bookmark records by timestamp to come back to later

  • Export, download, save, and email records quickly

  • Redact sensitive information, without compromising the integrity of recordings

Live Monitoring & Instant Replay

Monitor and replay live/recent phone or radio audio across all channels. Change volume levels and speed (with constant-pitch) to easily understand what’s being said.

Powerful Incident Management

Use tags and bookmarks to segment any type of recording by CAD Incident ID or court case number. Records can easily be exported and then redacted before being emailed or burned to a CD.

Share Recorders & Costs with Distributed Recording

A single recorder (and associated costs) can be shared across multiple departments or organizations while only allowing appropriate access to recordings. Partition access to records by user, team, department, agency, or organization.

Tell Me More About This
Never Miss a Recording

Recordings are automatically backed up to a secondary storage location. Real-time fault monitoring alerts you if something goes wrong. Recorders can be set up in redundant or geo-diverse* redundant configurations for 24/7/365 up-time.

What Type of Redundancy is Right For Me?
Grow Easily

Exacom uses open architecture (Windows OS and SQL databases) to build our logging recorders, so they’re easy to maintain and scale. Add more recorders cost-effectively as your communications expand.

No-Hassle Archival & Storage

Automatically delete recordings based on retention schedules that you set. We also have a wide variety of cost-effective storage options depending on your retention schedules and recorded media types.


Analyze What Matters Most

Multiple out-of-the-box charts and reports are included, but custom ones are available to pull in more data from your other systems.

Get The Whole Picture

When looking back at how a call-taker or dispatcher handled an interaction, audio can only capture what they said or heard. This means valuable information can be missed, such as:

  • What notes did they take during the conversation?

  • What map/location (GIS or ANI/ALI) data did they receive or view?

  • What information was entered into the CAD system?

  • What other metadata did they receive that could have influenced them?

Exacom’s Screen Recording functionality captures what personnel are doing on their consoles and any visual info they receive. This information can be recalled later to assist in Quality Assurance or risk mitigation.
