"We believe Digital Media should be presented, with all associated meta-data, in an interactive manner to provide complete Situational Awareness after the fact. With this in mind, we now deliver a platform to Court officials that makes receiving and manage Evidence effortless," said Simon Araya, Chief Technology Officer at Utility, Inc. "Ultimate Witness streamlines the process of sharing Evidence from multiple Law Enforcement agencies with the DA's office. It's an extension of our ecosystem to the Courtroom. We are releasing Ultimate Witness to our early adopter partners to gather valuable feedback before making it generally available to all our customers early next year."

Utility's Complete Evidence Capture and Management System
Both the BodyWorn camera and the RocketIoT™, singularly or in conjunction, utilize their unique communication capabilities to activate specific recording triggers that automatically start video recording. These triggers are set by the Department's individual recording policies – including a built-in accelerometer, prone positioning, light bar sensors in concert with door opening, rapid motion, GeoFence entry, etc. – and can be updated at any time through video management system, AVaiLWeb. The BodyWorn camera and the RocketIoT system offer unique integration with real-time GPS reporting of officer and vehicle location, automatically relating video for synchronized video playback, dockless evidence offload and more.
