Police departments are collecting massive amounts of video data –mostly from cops’ body cameras. A recent Office of Justice Programs report found resource issues surrounding body-worn cameras adoption were considerable, specifically data storage and management due to the enormous amount of video data that must be stored properly and securely.
One of the most-effective and reliable options to store digital data is through cloud storage, said Richard Zak, director of public safety and justice solutions for Microsoft Corp. The company recently collaborated with VIEVU on a body camera cloud solution for law enforcement. Zak said the work is an example of how VIEVU’s body cameras and Microsoft’s cloud solutions can work together to help deliver secure solutions for law enforcement.
The PatrolEyes HD is a body worn, high-definition video recorder for law enforcement with true HD 1080p recording. With its 140 degree wide angle lens or 170 degree in 480p mode and 16GB or 32GB of storage, it can capture hours of footage. With the press of a single button, recording can start even when the camera is turned off. The built in LCD allows you to review videos, photos or audio recordings in the field. The PatrolEyes HD has 3 indicators (vibration, LED light and sound) to confirm start/stop of recordings and has built in watermarks that cannot be tampered with.
