VALT for Interviews

Recording Solution for Interview Recording

The IVS team has been providing law enforcement interview recording solutions since 2001. VALT is our third generation product. It is simple and easy to use, supports industry standard MP4 high-definition video, and is extremely reliable and secure.

VALT takes advantage of high-definition IP cameras which yield high-quality audio/video recordings and is easily accessible from any PC, Mac, or tablet on the network. Recordings are launched directly from a device running the software, from a button outside the room or from an access control panel. Video files are indexed and easily searchable based upon your department’s search requirements and/or notes taken during the interview. Extensive permissions and rights allow you to segment which users have access to specific videos and features of the VALT application.

HD Camera Support

Our software integrates with the full line of Axis IP cameras. We can capture and stream HD content at resolutions beyond 1080p. 

Multi View

Quickly change views from single camera to 2×2 to 3×3. Users are able to observe up to nine rooms simultaneously.   


Built on top of a hardened Linux server operating system and proven application stack, the VALT software is an extremely reliable video recording application on the market.

Browser Interface

Easy to use intuitive browser-based software interface works on Mac, PC or mobile devices. This simplifies deployment and allows users to debrief and observe videos from any authorized device.

LDAP Integration

Automatically import LDAP users into the system and assign them to the proper VALT user group.  LDAP allows users to use their same network login information to access our system while completely automating the user management process.


Enterprise class video engine can support up to 500 concurrent remote connections. Multiple users watching live or recorded video will not cause any performance issues for our systems.

Integration & Features

VALT is a network based solution. Deployment and support of the system is simple and straightforward due to the simple architecture and reduced power and AV connections. All cameras reside on a network along with one of our appliances (servers) which runs the VALT software. An unlimited number of clients may access VALT via a browser. There is no client license charge for VALT. VALT is able to scale from one to many cameras and or multiple locations depending upon your department’s needs. VALT integrates with the Axis Communications line of IP cameras. Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras, fixed cameras, and covert cameras are all supported.

Camera Grouping

Group multiple cameras or encoders together into a single room. Grouped cameras start recording together and also playback together in a synchronized fashion.

Button & LED

Start and stop recording with the push of a button or the swipe of a RFID card reader. The system also integrates LEDs providing a visual indicator as to when a recording is active.


Tag specific points within a recording either during live observation or during the review process.  These points can have searchable descriptions associated with them. These “markers” allow users to easily jump right to that point in the video similar to chapters in a DVD.

MP4 File Format

Our system records in a standard .MP4 file format. Videos are ready to be exported as soon as you press stop — no additional render or re-encoding time required. Recordings can easily be shared with district attorneys or other individuals without the need for proprietary video players.

Beam for Mobile Interview Recording

The Beam application from IVS is an add-on application that works in conjunction with our VALT system. Beam turns any iPad or iPhone into a secure mobile recording platform. This enables officers and department officials to be able to record video in the field or other areas not outfitted with fixed cameras and microphones. The Beam iOS application integrates seamlessly with the VALT system.  Video recorded using the Beam enabled iOS devices are automatically uploaded to the main server whenever the devices are in range. This completely automates the management process for any videos recorded using Beam while opening up new uses for video including procedure training and briefings.


Capture Content Anywhere

Easily capture and stream video content from any iOS device.

HD Video Capture

Record in resolutions up to 1080p using either the front or rear camera.


The Beam application can be set to upload captured videos either automatically or on-demand.

Ease of Use

The mobile capture application is easy to deploy and use. The video management and sharing can be completely automated using our back end VALT application.
