The Real-Time Situation Recording Archive is a vastly powerful system which allows Middlemen to observe practically anything, anywhere. While it is most clearly demonstrated through the use of the Middle-Watch, which among its many functions is a recording device, Ida has proven able to record with the internal cameras of A.N.D. Laboratories and has at least one camera hidden in Wendy and Lacey's apartment. Video was also captured from an outdoor power station, suggesting the RTSRA either has many such hidden cameras or access to extremely high power satellites.
Events recorded in the Real-Time Situation Recording Archive can be played back at Middleman Headquarters indefinitely, and are usually displayed on a multi-panel screen, either to show multiple perspectives of the same event, or one perspective in large view.
