Unit 1Recording: Deploying Smartphones

The need for body cameras continues to grow all across the country, but some traditional systems are prohibitively expensive.  Visual Labs will show how an Android smartphone can be deployed as part of a CJIS-compliant, cost-effective body camera solution.  By utilizing a smartphone, an agency can get the functionality of a body camera, a digital camera, an audio recorder and a personnel locator, all while retaining the full functionality of the smartphone itself.  In this webinar, you will learn how the Visual Labs smartphone body camera solution will help to:

  • Improve Productivity – Automatic upload of footage from the field eliminates the need to return to a central location at the end of a shift;
  • Deploy Cost-Efficient Hardware – No need for docking stations, routers, special uniforms or complicated wiring;
  • Comply with Policy – A variety of automatic triggers can be configured to start a body camera recording; and
  • Increase Community Relations – Advance analytics are available to complement proactive policing efforts.
