As a law enforcement officer, have you ever wished that you could choose the resolution of a video after the incident took place? HD video is wonderful when you want it, but 90% of the time…you don’t want it. That is exactly the problem that 4RE addresses with Multiple Resolution Recording. 4RE records in both HD and standard definition at the same time, then you choose the resolution to keep based on whether or not it is a critical event. Listen to this brief video to find out more about 4RE and what it can do to help your agency. To find out more about 4RE, visit http://watchguardvideo.com/4re.
Record After The Fact is WatchGuard Video’s unique ability to go back in time and pull events off the hard drive that were not originally recorded as events. Learn more about Record After The Fact at http://watchguardvideo.com/record-after-the-fact.
Have you ever looked into incorporating 360 degree video coverage for your agency's vehicles? This video is an example of how 360 degree coverage helps when the action doesn't happen directly in front of your vehicle.
On March 7, 2013, Chief James Winstead II of the Blaine Police Department in Tennessee was in his cruiser on his way to City Hall when he received the call that a white, Nissan Altima had been flagged to pull over and refused. Officers were in pursuit. The road he was on was single lane in both directions with lots of hills. As he approached one uphill climb, the car in front of him suddenly veered off the road. Immediately the Chief saw why - the Altima was in the passing lane headed straight towards him. With no time to react, Chief Winstead hit the brakes and steered toward the ditch. The driver of the white Nissan hit him off-set/head-on, with an impact of 100 MPH. Video testimony from the Kustom Signal's Ion Eclipse installed in his vehicle provided the back-up evidence needed. Hoping that the pursuing officer's system could provide additional testimony from another angle, Chief Winstead was disappointed to discover that the other in-car video system (not from Kustom Signals) was not functional. Though his vehicle was totaled, Chief Winstead had the evidence he needed to document the incident.
This little incident happened right in front of our CEO on his way to the office recently. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. You can see the rider look down for just a second, but that's all it took...a good reminder for us all to leave space and keep our eyes on the road! — in Allen, TX.
