The Security Optical Microphone has uses in machine and
equipment monitoring, particularly in hostile environments,
and in overt or covert security surveillance applications.
The only part of the Security Optical Microphone present
in the monitored area is the tip of an inert 6mm diameter
cylinder. In overt or covert security surveillance, whether
used as a back-up device supporting other overt recording
technology, as a covert unit or as an overt, albeit concealed
device, the combination of innovative opto technology with
advanced signal processing and conditioning has produced
a device with many advantages over more traditional approaches.
For applications where evidence gathering is the primary
objective, the high quality of the captured sound recording
the wide coverage achieved by the unit make it a very useful
addition to the equipment portfolio.
Where there is no benefit in thin, transparent fiber cable,
we recommend the more robust Kevlar reinforced 3mm PVC cable.
