CEPROPIE is responsible for video and audio documentation and for media communications concerning the public activities of the president. It records, broadcasts and stores all the content generated by presidential activities. This requires technology that is robust and reliable, especially in terms of storage.

Édgar Acevedo, Project Coordinator at CEPROPIE, said they chose SpycerBox because it has proved to be the most robust and stable on the market, and that is what was needed, given the importance and volume of the content generated. Acevedo added that, in this six-year term of office, R&S SpycerBox's ability to handle data efficiently has been very helpful. Without such efficient equipment, it would be incredibly difficult to find one day's content in six years of records, he said.
