This February in 2020 we continue our celebration of 20 years and 4 generations of the all Australian designed and made Total Recall VR audio logging and call recording products.
While it all started in 2000 with the first award winning Total Recall VR Desktop unit, we quickly found ourselves between a rock and a hard place when IBM announced that OS/2 is not going to ‘warp’ any more after 2002. So we made the brave move to Linux and even braver move to Java (Java for real-time!? You have to be crazy we hear you say. Well we said it was brave). And the 2nd generation of award winning Total Recall VR Desktop started rolling off the production line.
While we kept the award winning “cash register” look, the TUI became a GUI, the storage capacity increased 10 fold to 10,000 audio hours and we started offering a recorder with 4, 8, 12 or 16 recording channels.
The product was so popular that we were exporting to more than 20 countries around the world with the US, UK and South Africa leading the way.
