You can access everything from your PC, through your office's existing local-area network. With simple configuration and minimal upkeep, SnapStream puts your finger directly on the pulse of news coverage.

A single SnapStream appliance can simultaneously record up to 10 TV shows and store up to 40,800 hours of recordings. Its powerful technology gives you the ability to quickly and easily search the entire archive by keyword, clip out content of interest, download or burn that video to DVD, and then email it to colleagues.

Customer Quotes

“Swapping tapes and locating the stories was very time consuming for our small staff. We would have to pull the original recording, fast forward to the mention, re-record onto another VHS tape and then send it off.”

– David Brown, Channel 13 Senior Producer for the City of Greensboro

“SnapStream was incredibly user friendly without opening a book or reading any instructions. A couple of words in the search engine and the results just pop up. I can go directly to it.”

– Napier Velazquez, public relations specialist for the City of Miami Police Department
