TANDBERG Compliance Appliance™ is a high volume, transparent video recording solution that enables organizations to archive video calls and easily identify content for compliance and auditing purposes. Scalable, flexible and secure, the Compliance Appliance is designed to meet the unique challenges of local and international video call compliance and operates seamlessly as part of a standards-compliant video solution.

A Complete High Volume Recording Solution For Video Conferencing Archiving

Regulations around the world currently require financial, legal and medical institutions to maintain archived records of voice communications in the event they are called into evidence for inquiries or investigations. As an example, Financial Services Agency (FSA) requirements in the UK mirror similar policies around the globe that stipulate financial companies must be able to provide recorded documentation for specific types of conversations. As more organizations migrate to video communications as a mainstream method of collaborating, they too will likely need to comply with similar requirements in the future.

TANDBERG Compliance Appliance™ (TCA) is the industry's first and only video recording product that provides a seamless approach to document video conversations. While many organizations have the ability to archive e-mails and record phone calls and meetings, there is no solution in place to seamlessly record and transcode large volumes of video meetings for archival. The TANDBERG Compliance Appliance™ integrates with any standards-compliant video conferencing network to record the video and audio for up to 50 point-to-point video calls.

Considerations for Video Conference Communications Compliance

Organizations need to consider several elements when determining the archival requirements of their video conferencing network:

External Requirements

  • Would you be able to provide adequate documentation of video conference communications if investigated?
  • What are the current and future regulations for the recording, archiving and retrieval of conferencing records?
  • As your organization migrates to video collaboration, will you be able to document the important messages delivered through nonverbal communication?
  • What recording and archiving solution is currently in place to document audio and video calls?

Network and End-User Requirements

  • How do you preserve, secure and track video calls with your video communications network?
  • Does your video recording integrate seamlessly with your Storage Area Network (SAN)?
  • Is it interoperable with your existing network, regardless of vendor?
  • Is it easy to use, secure and reliable?
  • Will it impact the quality of your calls?
  • Does it provide the flexibility to scale as your organization grows?

A Simple Solution to Ensure Conferencing Compliance

The TANDBERG Compliance Appliance™ is completely interoperable with standards- based, PC-based video, desktop video, executive conferencing and even telepresence. Whether you have only a few endpoints you need to record or thousands, you can scale the Compliance Appliance to meet specific needs. TANDBERG Compliance Appliance is flexible enough to balance the needs of your organization with the requirements of any governing body.

  • Scalable - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance is the only video conference recorder that can scale to accommodate the size of your network. Whether you need to record calls between two executive conference rooms or 20,000 video endpoints, you can expand to meet your evolving needs, regardless of how expansive they are. Multiple TANDBERG Compliance Appliances can be run in parallel to capture as many endpoints as needed.
  • Compliant - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance meets the legal requirements that apply to other media such as audio recordings and e-mails and are likely to apply to video conferences.
  • Flexible Configuration - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance can be configured to meet the unique needs of your organization, as well as local, regional or national regulatory regulations or requirements.
  • Simple Retrieval of Data - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance assigns a file name to each recording consisting of the date, time and the endpoint IDs, making it easy to identify and retrieve specific conferences using any standard file management tool.
  • Tamper-Evident Storage - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance's storage method assigns each recording a checksum to provide proof of authenticity - a critical element in determining admissibility of evidence.
  • Disaster Proof - If a recording fails for any reason, such as one endpoint dropping out, TANDBERG Compliance Appliance automatically terminates the entire conference and starts recording again when all the participants reconnect. This ensures a complete recording of a conference.
  • Space-Saving Compression - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance automatically compresses video and audio files to save storage space. It also gives you the option to store audio and video in separate locations, providing the flexibility to maintain the records for different periods of time.
  • Seamless Integration with Most Networks - TANDBERG Compliance Appliance is interoperable with any standards-based network that is connected to a TANDBERG VCS.
