MPH Industries Introduces Muvi LE, a New Body-worn Video System
The Muvi LE is ideal for all officers to document activity away from their vehicles
MPH Industries is proud to introduce the Muvi LE, a compact, body-worn video recorder that documents everything the officer sees and everything the suspect says. The small unit is a complete video system, with wide-angle color camera, internal microphone, and battery. Recording can be activated by voice command or by pressing the record button. The video can be downloaded and played on any computer with a USB port.
Muvi LE allows officers to document crime scenes in ways they couldn’t previously. For example,
• It accompanies the officer wherever he goes: to domestic disturbances, traffic stops, or drug arrests.
• It sees what the officer sees, records the presence of any contraband in a suspect’s home or vehicle.
• It films field sobriety tests, searches of the suspect or premises, and arrests.
• It records interviews with suspects and witnesses, and documents everything that is told to the officer.
• It’s especially useful for motorcycle and bicycle patrols.
The officer has full control of when the unit records and when it is off.
One of the best things about the Muvi LE package is its price. This unit is attractively priced at a $149, and discounts are available for larger quantities. The Muvi LE package includes a special accessory mounting kit and a watertight carrying case for the recorder.
John Broxon, marketing manager of MPH, commented, “We are very impressed with the Muvi LE. It is selling faster than we anticipated, due to the combination of its great features and low price. It is a great tool for law enforcement, and every officer needs to have one. When officers see the unit in action at a trade show, they often want to buy our demonstration units right there and then. The video is clear and crisp, yet the unit is very small and easily incorporated into the officer’s uniform.”
Mr. Broxon continued, “Agencies purchase the Muvi LE for two main reasons. First is the quality of the evidence it captures – it documents the probable cause and creates iron-clad cases. The second reason is the protection it gives the officer and the department, protecting them from false allegations. Officers especially like the degree of freedom it gives them – they can turn it on when needed, and turn it off when handling personal business. They see it as a tool to make their job easier, and way to document their professionalism.”
