New tech enables live, HD video from cruisers
Demo cruiser features 5 HD cameras; Capable of sending video to anyone over 4G wireless connection
CHELMSFORD, Mass. - Axis Communications, a Swedish video technology company with its U.S. headquarters in Chelmsford, has created its own police cruiser to demonstrate how law enforcement agencies could use networked high-def video cameras.
Using such a set-up, police or other law enforcement agencies could watch cruiser camera footage live, rather than after the fact, and send video to fellow officers - or anyone - over a 4G wireless Internet connection, according to Scott Dunn, Axis' director of business development.
