Console System

Voice Print International Inc. (VPI) announced the successful integration of its VPI Capture recording technology with Avtec’s Scout voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) console system for streamlined, software-only recording. The certified integration of VPI Capture with Avtec’s Scout console system results in the capture of IP traffic directly from the console system. This direct recording integration results in the capture of the entire voice transmission. VPI’s recording method captures transmission streams via certified direct integration, eliminating the need for spanning ports or managed switches. This efficient integration approach saves hardware resources, expedites implementation and captures all audio files in a standard, Microsoft-native WAV format for simplified file management.
