What You Need To Know About the "Video Quality in Public Safety" Initiative

Date: 2014-10-09
Share |, a section of the Department of Homeland Security’s Science & Technology  Directorate that provides first responders with information on technology, resources, programs, and the like, has posted the Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS) video.  This 100-second-long overview of the VQiPS program is intended to assist the first responder community in clearly defining and communicating their video quality needs.

As the video explains, video is becoming an increasingly important tool in public safety, as administrators and city officials are looking more and more to video technology to deliver public safety services.  Video will play an even bigger role in FirstNet, which has been tasked by Congress to facilitate the building, deployment, and operation of a nationwide public safety broadband network.

Public safety practitioners rely heavily on video technology as a tool by which to keep the Nation safe. Poor quality video footage can have serious implications and may mean the difference between life and death.  Through the VQiPS initiative, public safety practitioners, Federal partners, manufacturers, and representatives of standards making bodies are working to improve the way in which video technologies serve the public safety community.

With this short video tutorial, 9-1-1 and emergency response administrators learn the basics of what they need to know about the VQiPS program and how video technology will be used, received, and communicated by public safety in the coming years.
