Interview Room Video & Audio

I have an opportunity with local Law Enforcement to install new systems for their Interview rooms. I have done this many times in the past with analog cameras, covert setups using PIR's and Thermostats etc., but with IP Video the game changes a bit.

One of the issues is Audio sync with Video. No wiggle room here. It has to stay sync'd thru several hours of interview otherwise the courts will throw it out.

An Internal Affairs detective asked me if it would be possible to erase the video after he burned it to DVD. This is a permissions issue with the VMS we all know, but do we allow a typical cop (no offense intended here) to just erase video on the fly.

Anyway, I'm looking for feedback on systems or methods of using one VMS on a server to record several rooms or several small server/workstations to accomplish the same thing. One of the catches here is that with the advent of Live viewing on a thin client or a smartphone/tablet, how do I accomplish that on several servers?

Comments welcome....including any on IP covert cameras that are already concealed or can easily be concealed (with audio inputs)
