Safety Vision, L.P. Expands PatrolRecorder™ Line of In-car Video
Houston TX - Safety Vision, a global provider of mobile digital video solutions, expands the PatrolRecorder™ line by introducing the PatrolRecorder™ CF and the PatrolRecorder™ RHD. Both mobile recorders provide law enforcement personnel with high quality mobile video recording in a digital format.
The PatrolRecoder CF is a solid state mobile digital recorder with no moving parts and can store up to 13 hours of data. The PatrolRecorder RHD is able to store several shifts' worth of data with its removable 2.5" mobile-rated hard drive. Both units power up in less than four seconds and provide pre-event recording time of up to 60 seconds. A standard feature includes integrated GPS positioning, which tracks vital information such as location and speed for each recorded event. Data is retrievable by removing the compact flash card or hard drive, or using wireless technology.
The PatrolRecorder CF and PatrolRecorder RHD are stand-alone units designed for mobile applications in harsh temperature and high vibration environments. "They are being very well received for their ruggedness, compactness and versatility. Police departments like that the recorders are lightweight and easily fit inside the patrol car. The compact flash card or removable hard drive make data retrieval simple, which adds to their appeal," stated Safety Vision National Sales Manager, Law Enforcement Video Solutions Duane Rumski.
To assist police departments in managing and archiving collected data, a software application that integrates with database technology was developed for these units. Video files and corresponding metadata are stored in a database allowing efficient information retrieval as needed.
In 2004, Safety Vision entered the law enforcement market with an analog line of mobile recorders and in two years responded to customers' rapidly changing needs by offering the PatrolRecorder series of digital recording units. "Building on our decade of mobile digital expertise in the transit and pupil transportation markets, we continue to develop units that work well with law enforcement," stated Safety Vision president and CEO Bruce Smith.
