2014: the counter-espionage year

2014 will be, without doubt, the counter-espionage year. After the Datagate scandal that hit the world with different effects depending on the area, many have asked during the  2013 to improve their security and surveillance systems. This isn’t a real innovation, but it’s a inevitable requirement. The principle is the that of the espionage, more and more frequent, especially by hackers, who in 2013 tried to develop them with testimonials and referrals to top-secret documents. In fact, 2014 will eliminate the espionage threats that causes uncontrolled daily damages to many businesses and people, even unsuspected. In 2013 it was brought to light the scandal, in 2014 it’s time to do the math.

We must recognize that numerous espionage acts are often make easy by the lack of equipment against external intrusion. In the course of 2013, smartest employers have already begun to increase the protection level of their companies with constant environmental bug sweeping and with the implementation of video surveillance and pc security tools.

These are monitoring tools that should be in every business whether large or small. In fact, it’s customary to think that small businesses are exempt from espionage, but in reality they are the most affected and subjected to the most disastrous damages.

To these systems are added personal attention for those who believe they can be subjected to indiscreet interception. This is for example the use of mobile phones impossible to intercept, as the Stealth Phone proposed by Endoacustica Europe. Unlike a mobile phone that operates on the encrypted voice data, codifying and making them unintelligible to any listener outside, the Stealth Phone instead protects the phone itself, making it untraceable. In addition there are other tools that can verify the presence of a bug on the phone line.

In short, the wide Endoacustica Europe range can be considered a great ally for the security of business and personal data and informations.

Digital video recorders to expose cases of bribery

March 6, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Take the Money and Run

When it comes to having the possibility of using one’s position and power in the political arena, no matter how small or big, for a personal gain, the world is all the same, no matter which side of the fence one sits in.
So, at any latitude, at any level, you can hear about agreements reached under the table between majority and opposition, agreements which, instead of bringing about an advantage for the community, end up being profitable mostly for politicians of either side, or of both.

Generally this kind of agreement is reached silently, to avoid publicity and unpleasant political consequences. Sometimes though, it may happen that among the members of a chamber, or a local or regional council, there is someone who says no to this status quo and decides to expose these under-the-table agreements.

Something like this is what happened in a small Russian town, lost in the middle of the Siberian tundra. In that part of the world, corruption is unfortunately part of daily life, and opposing it means, too often, running a personal risk or putting one’s life in danger. All this was not enough to put down the local MP Sergei (not his real name) from his idea of making a corruption case known to the general public.

The question was about the opening of a waste processing plant near his town. The fact itself is quite a common thing which would not make the headlines, if not for the fact that, unbeknownst to the inhabitants, the plant was going to be used not only for common waste, but also to dispose of much more dangerous nuclear waste, of course without making the whole thing public.

To guarantee approval of this slight deviation from the official plan, both coalitions received promises of substantial sums of money, personal benefits or even luxury cars. This was being openly discussed during council meetings, with no shame whatsoever or any respect for the public.

To make this case public, Sergei equipped himself with a miniature video recorder, slightly smaller than a pack of cigarettes, concealed in the front pocket of his jacket.

A micro digital video recorder, in spite of its extremely small size, is capable of recording high quality video footage and clear sounds, without being visible at first sight, saving its recordings on a memory card, either built-in or additional, with a capacity of up to 32 Gb or more.

Recording can be easily started by casually pressing a button, without giving out any sign of activity and without raising any suspicion. Once the recording operation is completed, all you have to do is connect your digital video recorder to any computer thanks to the USB cable, and download your footage.

This is exactly what our Sergei did, and once he had his movies downloaded on his PC, he uploaded them on YouTube and made the link public in his town. Despite the fact that in Russia, people have a very lax attitude towards their politicians, and often turn a blind eye to corruption and bribery cases, getting to know that their hometown was to become the gravesite of tons of nuclear waste generated a widespread outrage, and several protests in the city ended up in having the project rejected. All this thanks to a local MP without a price tag on, and to his passion for technology.

If you want to give a go at taking video footage without being seen, not only to expose such cases, but just for work reasons, to take notes during a meeting, or for leisure (a day out with your friends, a concert and so on) and to have more information on how micro video recorders are working, you can visit the Endoacustica website.

A micro camera hidden in a button

January 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Thanko

One of the latest novelties in the miniature video camera field comes, needless to say, from Japan, where Thanko, a manufacturer specialized in miniature gadgets, has just released an improved and upgraded version of its micro camera concealed inside a button, which allows for recording of sound as well as images.

In fact, if the previous Camera Button version was capable of filming high definition videos and shooting image stills, this newer version has been improved by adding a microphone which makes it possible to add sounds to your footage, thus enabling you to use it for shooting of covert videos that can be used as evidence before a court of law.

This micro recorder is approximately 7 centimeters long, and a lens that looks like a common jacket button, and can therefore be easily concealed inside clothes without raising attention. The footage is then saved on a Micro SD type memory card, with a capacity of up to 16 Gb. Power is supplied by a Lithium-ion battery, which allows for continuous recording up to 70 minutes.

Recording is started by simply pressing a button, while the previous version was equipped with a remote control which made operations slightly easier. In any case, given its price range around 55 US dollars, we are talking about a quite reliable product.

Of course, if it is a professional micro camera we are after, or a real digital micro video recorder to be used in surveillance field, it is recommended to spend a bit more to provide yourselves with a product that guarantees a flawless performance; in order to do so, our advice is to visit the Endoacustica website.

Micro video recorders for the holidays, and not only

January 5, 2010 Technology No Commenti

mini-dvr

It may be a bit too late for a Christmas present for a relative or a friend, but it’s never too late to make yourselves ready in case you have to take video footage on the go.

If during your New Year party with friends, or your Christmas lunch with your family, you thought even for a second that you wished you had a video camera on hand to save memories of a particularly funny or special moment, you really might have used a miniature digital video recorder.

Thanks to their extremely small size, they are perfectly suitable for being comfortably placed in the front pocket of your jacket, and can be concealed inside key holders, cigarette lighters, pens and so on, in order not to arise suspicion and take candid or covert recordings.

Generally, the high definition video footage is captured by a microscopic high sensitivity viewer, and stored on an embedded memory card which, depending on the model, can have a capacity of up to 8 Gb, that is, several hours of recordings in the most common video formats, which can easily be downloaded on your computer thanks to a USB cable.

Besides leisurely use, some models of micro video recorders hidden inside everyday objects, are suitable for covert gathering of images and evidence during surveillance operations or corporate counterespionage, and are therefore recommended for use by law enforcement agencies or professionals in the surveillance field.

Not only to shoot quick videos from your holidays or parties, but also to gather evidence of marital infidelity or of any crime that you may be witnessing, usage of a pocket video recorder can help you solve a wide range of problems, at home or at work, and even help keep our cities secure!
