Have you ever wished you had a digital recorder that simply popped you out a CD at the end of the days recording, just like a tape in the old days? The Martel CD Recorder 4 does this exactly, working like a normal tape recorder until it automatically burns you a CD when you're done recording.
Court reporters can now just buy a 3 cent CD instead of cassette tapes or memory cards and have a solid physical backup to save their record. If the judge requests a copy of your recording, just hit the burn button and hand them one.
Here at Martel we choose meeting recorder devices based primarily upon two factors, reliability and ease of use. The Martel CD Recorder 4 backs up all recordings as it goes along, so if the power dies or the recorder is turned off, you won't lose anything. At all times it is recording to both a SD memory card and a flash memory.
As for ease of use, we have a large color display that helps you navigate the CD recorders features. The low weight and small size, plus battery operation make it portable for use anywhere.
Record in either of 2 file formats, .MP3 or .WAV. The MP3 format gets you 40 plus hours on a compact disc, and the WAV format allows for broadcast quality.
Most importantly though, the Martel CD Recorder 4 is manufactured in Japan, in an ISO certified tech facility. Choose the best meeting recording equipment available.
USB for Easy Transfer of Files to PC or Flash Drive
Connect to your computer for quick file transfer, or copy files onto a USB storage device for convenience.
Misplaced the manual? No worries! The Martel CD Recorder 4 features an on-board EZ Guide that gives you step-by-step instructions for common operations. Just press the EZ Guide button on the front panel, select the pertinent subject from the menu, and you're good to go. Couldn't be simpler!

I believe this recorder is so good I just purchased a second to be used at our hearings and other meetings, and we have been recording such hearings and meetings for the past 18 years.

We were looking for a long time for a meeting recording system that could archive to cd at the meeting. Our board requires copies of the minutes before they leave. after the meeting we just slip in a blank cd and copy it 5 times. It takes only a few minutes to accomplish. The conference microphones pickup everyone in the group perfectly. Since getting our first cd meeting recorder, we now have 3 more of the conference equipment. I would recommend this conference recording equipment to any government agency or business.

I recently purchased this Digital MP3 Recorder to record official municipal meetings for permanent record, and I love it. It gives crystal clear quality, is easy to record and play back, and easy to set up. Otherwise, this item is a dream!

Our jurisdiction looked at many options when we needed a recording system for our courts. Most of the software court room solutions where to pricey. After hearing the pitch from the software integrators my head hurt. No one in their right mind could remember how to work this software. We need a better courtroom recording system that was simple. Then I remembered our court reporter telling us that they buy all their microphones from Martel. That did it. I went to this site and landed on the cd courtroom recorder package 4. Nice and simple. We order 3 of them and love it. We can record all day and burn a cd on the way out the door for archiving. The package came with 4 microphones, 4 cables stands and the recorder. We added the carrying case so we could take it when we traveled in the circuit. I have to say it was only around a $1200, thats a deal since the software recording solutions where way more than that. Plus I don't have to learn any software just drop it and press record. When finished I put a bland cd into the recorder and press burn. I can even make copies on the spot for pesky lawyers. The audio is cd quality and no one ever complains to me about the voice quality. I think Martel has the solution for most small courtrooms in the country. You can take it from me.

Our circuit court in Texas needed to find a reliable way to record our proceedings without breaking the bank. We travel from court room to court room in our county. We need a turn-key courtroom system\solution that we could pack up and move. I bought the carrying case and it all fits nicely into with with a shoulder strap. Connivence, simple and the audio quality is amazing. The best part of it though I have to say is the cd burning. It fast and can make multiple cd copies of the court recordings on scene in minutes. I do not even need to use a computer or software. I aslo bought the Court Room Recording/Transcriber with the usb foot pedal for transcribing. The digital transcriber cost $129.00 and comes complete and universal with everything you need.

After researching on the web for months I had a hard time finding a courtroom recording equipment that was easy to use. The courtroom recording solutions involved complicated software servers and computer and that wasn't for me. Luckily a court reporter friend told me to go on Martel Electronics web site and I found the cd courtroom recorder package. Well I bought it and love it. I can record all day in the court and burn a cd at night. So simple and user friendly. No pc or server needed. Thats what I call user friendly. I want all the other courtrooms in my circuit court in Texas now to buy them

We now have purchased more than 33 of the Martel Martel CD Courtroom Recorder with CD burners. The voice recordings are great and we archive each day of court onto 1 cd, cost around 10 cents a day. We also use the All N One transcription kit to transcribe the audio when we need to do so. The courtroom CD recorder works for us. They have sent me technology updates for the courtroom recorder along with best practices and news and information periodically also.

We recently bought this courtroom recording system to record hearings in our courtroom. We love the ability to burn a cd recording after the hearing and give it to our judge and lawyers. The system records the court proceedings onto the recorder in the mp3 format and then we just burn it to cd. Perfect simple.

We have about 4 of the DCRP COURTROOM RECORDING PACKAGES. The Martel DCRP was selected for use in our COURTROOM RECORDING proceedings. The COURTROOM RECORDER product to replace tape based courtroom recording systems in the State courts. The Sony BM 246 machines were being replaced so we need a cost effective solution for court recording. Now when we are finished recording in our courtrooms we download the audio files directly into our court server where they are archive so later use and transcription. The information I found on Martel site was extremely important in making our purchase order decision. We have recommended this system to other state courtrooms in the last couple of months and it has been a wise decision. Courtroom Recording? You need this courtroom recording package non pc. The best part is that is was a total Turn key COURTROOM RECORDER SOLUTION.
