Ovation Systems to distribute Cypher Technology's award winning PUMA automated media card archiving system


Ovation Systems is pleased to announce an agreement with Cypher Technology to distribute their PUMA automated media card archiving system.  PUMA was designed in conjunction with the UK police to meet the exacting requirements of law enforcement organisations when handling video, audio and picture evidence gathered on removable media cards.

The key to PUMA is its simplicity. Once a media card is inserted into PUMA’s multiple card reader, one button press is all that is required to generate a bit-for-bit master copy of the evidence to a CD or DVD with data verification.  PUMA can then produce number of working copies that are processed and authored for ease of playback as required by the user.  This type of archiving operation using a standard PC requires a number of software packages, specialist training and is evidentially insecure.  With PUMA, handling and archiving of highly sensitive media card evidence is now quick and easy, requiring minimal operator training.  PUMA has been very well received by the UK police and won second place in the 2009 Equipment Technology and Innovation Awards organized by the UK’s Home Office Scientific Development Branch. 


Mike Parker of Cypher Technology commented, "PUMA was designed to meet real operational need of the UK police and has been very successful so far.  Teaming up with Ovation Systems is very exciting as they have an established worldwide customer base that has a need for an automated archiving product like PUMA”

David Millar, Sales and Marketing Director of Ovation Systems said “we are delighted to be working with Cypher Technology for the first time. PUMA perfectly complements our range of covert digital video and audio recorders and it will undoubtedly be a very useful tool for our customers.” He went on to say “As a manufacturer, Ovation Systems has chosen not to distribute any third party product lines in the past, however, the fit with Cypher Technology and PUMA is so strong it is impossible to ignore. I’m sure this is going to be a very successful partnership!”
