The site must also provide sufficient storage capacity to retain the recordings. Installations may choose to save the recording files on the local computer, or on a central data repository. In the former case, the recording PC should have sufficient space to retain the files for the required period of time. In the latter case, the server should have sufficient capacity. Regardless of where the data is saved, appropriate measures must be taken to provide for backup and recovery of the data. Note that the multi-channel files created by the Liberty Recorder are standard computer files and may be moved, copied and saved, just as any other computer file. Standard file backup strategies including data mirroring, and RAID configurations are applicable to the Liberty files.

The Liberty Player will run on any standard PC or laptop with a Windows 98 or later operating system. The computer must be equipped with a standard sound card which will be used for audio play-back. The Liberty Player is a no-cost download, available from the Liberty Recording web site. The Player allows users to access and listen to individual channels within a .dcr file.

The Liberty Player may also be used to Export a .dcr file into a .wav or .wma file than may be played by other players such as Windows Media Player.
Note that older PCs may not have sufficient resources to playback video files created by the Liberty Recorder.

Computers must run Windows 98 2nd Edition or later and must be equipped with a USB connection, in order to use the foot-pedal.
