Recorded Room Clarification

Recorded Room - Shadow Spells

"This spell makes a visual image of a room"...

Is this intended to be a single image, a snap-shot if you will, or - since it is a sustained spell - would this show more of a live-stream video?

Recorded Room (Shadow Spells, p.18) lets the spellcaster capture a comprehensive 3D image of a room in just the length of time it takes to cast the spell, and hold it in their mind for as long as they sustain it, like a detailed hologram that they can explore thoroughly when it's more convenient. You can view anything from any angle; the only downside is you can't move anything for a better view. Great when you need to search a place but don't have any timeóMr. Johnson's office, a research lab, a crime scene, etc.

The image is a single moment trapped in time; it doesn't update in real-time. For that, you want Clairvoyance (SR5, p.286, also see the Detection spell example on p.285).

Thanks chummer.  Thought that was the case but figured it would be good to ask.
