Everything Flows; Nothing Stands Still

ZRT 3 is the evolutionary development of the world’s leading manual cell phone investigation tool. Since its debut in 2007, it has been continuously developed and enhanced, based on feedback from some of the world’s leading cell phone investigators.

ZRT 3 for Cell Phones

Easy to Use–Reliable and Essential

ZRT 3 streamlines the time consuming task of taking pictures or recording HD video content from cell phones and other portable devices which are not supported by logical and physical extraction tools. These pictures and videos are then processed through the new powerful report generator that automates the process of categorizing, labeling and resizing the data to build a very professional and easy to read digital or paper based report.

ZRT 3 OCR Module

Fernico Innovates – It Does Not Imitate

The innovative OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capability is a game-changer for investigators. It is no longer necessary to manually examine each individual photograph for evidential content. The OCR engine will extract the text from the photo and store it in a case database for searching and further analysis. This feature was pioneered by Fernico and puts ZRT 3 in a league of its own.

ZRT 3 Supports Every Phone–Every Time

Cell phone investigators cannot rely on any one tool to support every device. With the ever expanding range of new cell phones released each year, ZRT is essential for dealing with devices, old or new, that are otherwise not supported. Photo documentation is also increasingly becoming a key process in validating findings from other methods.

Some Phones Just Do Not Want to Play Ball

Boost Mobile

Many cell phone investigators have experienced difficulty extracting data from Boost Mobile phones using digital methods. With ZRT 3, the manual method of obtaining evidence is the only way.


When data extraction from a mobile device is not possible, as is the case with many Tracfones, it is necessary to capture the evidence manually.

ZRT 3 Hardware


To supplement its compatibility with specific Canon DSLR cameras, ZRT 3 is also equipped with USB HD webcam support. ZRT 3 comes standard with either the Canon Rebel T5 DSLR camera or the Microsoft LifeCam Studio HD web camera. The following cameras are also supported. Contact us for more details.

DVR Capture

Efficiently documenting evidential video recovered from crime scene surveillance cameras can be a challenge for law enforcement agencies. ZRT 3 has been designed to easily and quickly create an evidence report that links recovered DVR surveillance video to a suspect.

ZRT 3 Imports Surveillance Video Directly from the DVRs

With ZRT 3, the user can import and document their evidential video footage into a professionally formatted report, which can be generated into a PDF, DOC, or HTML file. ZRT 3 also allows video frames to be captured as pictures and added to the report and/or stored on a PC or other removable device. Supplementary items such as PDF files, Word documents and text files can also be included in the final report.

ZRT 3 supports archiving all case items to DVD or Blu-ray at the end of the process, allowing data transfer between departments or to other agencies. ZRT 3 has a well designed workflow that is customizable through its program settings to integrate with existing departmental procedures.
