Safety Innovations International, a leading provider in body-worn cameras, used the VidMic VX™ to demonstrate live video streaming across an LTE network using the new Harris XL-200P, a P25 multiband radio. The VidMic VX™ is an all-in-one body worn camera and speaker mic that integrates with over 200 models of common radios. The demonstration took place at APCO 2015 in Washington, DC, and consisted of the VidMic VX™ body camera, the XL-200P radio and an Android tablet.
The VidMic VX™ enabled a live video stream to an XL-200P radio and transmitted the video across a private LTE network to another XL-200P radio. The android tablet, connected via WIFI to the second radio, displayed the live video stream. Michael D. Nelson, CEO of Safety Innovations said:
The VidMic VX™ body camera was the logical choice for Harris because of its many advanced features and all-in-one speaker microphone and body worn camera capabilities. The technology that was demonstrated has many applications – including giving police command staff the ability to view an incident, in real time, while communicating with those involved to ensure a desired outcome.
The combination of the body-worn camera and built-in radio reduces quantity, weight and the complexity of equipment officers wear. The VidMic VX™ uses Safety Innovations’ AccuView™ technology capable of recording video in low light conditions. This innovative technology is a fifth-generation device based on the original VidMic that served as the first body-worn camera ever used by public safety professionals.
Along with the VidMic VX™, Safety Innovations also manufactures the VidCam VX™ and VidVault™ evidence management software. The VidCam VX™ is a ruggedized body-worn camera designed specifically for law enforcement officers and the harsh conditions they face. VidVault™ is a user-friendly secure evidence management system that works with the cloud, on local servers, or a hybrid of both depending on your department’s unique needs.
