Black Vox Audio Solutions are a UK produced range of audio solutions built specifically for Covert Tactical Audio ops.

Originally designed for Law Enforcement and used by hundreds of Investigation departments worldwide. 

Why is this Black Vox the preferred solution for Law Enforcement? 

Black Vox is designed to overcome many of the issues investigators face when using covert audio recording equipment:

Ease of Use

All Black Vox solutions are designed with ease of use in mind.

When you need to use a professional audio recorder, you need peace of mind that your solution can be quickly and easily deployed without worrying about what you need to do to capture your audio. 

With only 1 button on the Black Vox Internal, you only need to press it once and it is ready to capture any sound it detects.

Law Enforcement operations happen in real time and there is no room for error.

When you need to capture important audio evidence, you need a solution which can be deployed quickly and easily.

Black Vox External gives LE a long-term audio solution which can be deployed in difficult environments and operate for long periods of time.

The tiny appearance of the External mic is ideal tactical audio deployments, hiding the main unit out of sight and using the 3-foot flexible Mic proves useful for recording in noisy environments and getting the mic as close to the target as possible.

Black Vox can only be fully appreciated by Investigators who need equipment which can stand up to the real time environment of an investigation.

Investigators can be trained to use Black Vox in less than 5 minutes.

Black Vox Audio addresses all of the common issues at point of design, a no frills, extremely effective and well built system designed for professional use.

Multiple sound tests have been performed on Black Vox systems.

The 40-foot audio capture range is based on multiple testing scenarios in a variety of environments including cars and busy places where recording audio may be compromised.

The onboard adjustment settings on the software included with Black Vox allows Investigators to adjust the Microphone sensitivity.

Covert Deployment

Black Vox has 2 super strong magnets built into its tiny housing. The positioning of these magnets and lightweight housing of the device allows the Black Vox to be deployed in a variety of environments

Using the magnetized housing, users can place the Black Vox in difficult environments such as under a desk: attaching the device to any metal frame on the underside of a desk within 40 feet of the target.

Black Vox can be left for long periods and sit in a state of sound detection (VOX) for up to 160 days on a single charge.

Capturing audio when sound (VOX) is detected means the Black Vox is efficiently using its battery to only record when sound is made.

When users review the captured data, you can be sure there are no long silences and Black Vox has only recorded events where sound has been detected and all files with audio will be time and date stamped. 

Overcoming Difficult Deployments

Recording Audio in a Moving Vehicle presents a lot of problems to investigators.

Attaching devices to cars in a covert manner and trying to limit the potential for discovery whilst ensuring the device can record clearly has been a common issue for many years.

Black Vox solves this problem.

Underneath the passenger seats of any vehicle are metal plates. Deploying Black Vox under a car seat provides maximum protection against discovery and positions Black Vox perfectly.

If Black Vox is positioned under the car seat against the metal plates, it is not going to be moved, even if the vehicle starts moving from side to side erratically.

Black Vox Externals magnetized housing will hold the device perfectly still.

Deploying Black Vox under a car seat can be achieved in less than 2 seconds, simply aim for the middle of the underside of the seat with the magnets towards the underside and Black Vox will attach to the underside of the seat and stay intact no matter what speed the vehicle is travelling. The Black Vox External Mic can be threaded out of sight in many locations in a vehicle.

Long Duration and Efficient Use of Battery

As Black Vox only operates in VOX (sound detection mode) it can sit in wait for long periods and only activate recording when sound is captured.

Black Vox (PBN-BVIM) can record continuously for up to 160 hours on a single charge and the 8GB memory capacity can hold upto 288 hours of recordings before audio files need to off-loaded or deleted to free up space.

Tiny Size

At just 3.24 inches long and just and 1.24 inches wide and 1 inch thick, the Black Vox External is extremely small.

The tiny form factor of this professional audio recorder allows users to deploy the device very close to a target with little chance of discovery.

Multi Compatible device for fast offloading of Audio Files

Black Vox External Mic comes supplied with an OTG adapter.

Use the adapter to listen to or offload audio files through any iPhone or Android device.

Users can also plug the device directly into any PC/MAC to listen to, save, and delete recordings from the device.
