Getac Launches Veretos Mobile Video System for Law Enforcement
Innovative in-car mobile video system leverages decades of research and development with law enforcement for optimal performance
Getac, a leading manufacturer of rugged computers, announced today its release of the Veretos Mobile Video System (MVS), an in-car mobile video recording system engineered for use in law enforcement vehicles to capture all activities in and around the vehicle as they happen. Designed for superior performance, expandability and ease of use, Getac’s Veretos MVS incorporates several advanced features including extreme low-light video recording, secure and redundant recording capabilities, a high resolution display that is 2.5x the resolution of its nearest competitor, and built-in WiFi enabling easy video transfer with optional 4G LTE wireless. The complete MVS kit includes a ZeroDark HD camera for front mounting, 5-inch display control unit, backseat camera, wireless microphone, cables and video software. The new mobile video system is available through certified Getac Veretos resellers.
“Getac’s new Veretos Mobile Video System represents more than 25 years of R&D combined with the evolving voice of our customers,” said Rick Hwang, president of Rugged Solutions Business Unit at Getac. “Veretos provides law enforcement officers with an effective way to capture, save and archive video content to accurately preserve all activities as they happen. As law enforcement activities become further scrutinized, it is imperative to have a reliable system to clearly and accurately capture events.”
Features include a ZeroDark HD Camera, which can capture detail in illumination levels as low as 0.03 lux, nearly complete darkness. This is critical for law enforcement officers who work in rural unlit areas. With a powerful 18x zoom feature, ZeroDark far exceeds the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) standard of 10x.
The Veretos MVS features the most robust in-car Digital Video Recorder capabilities available on the market today. The standard front-facing camera records video in widescreen high-definition format using H.264 compression. The system is designed to capture multiple camera sources simultaneously using different encoding standards for security and redundancy.
Veretos is a highly customizable solution that can be configured to support numerous trigger points (lights, siren activation, door, AUX input, crash, speed and microphone functions) enabling automatic recording of critical events. This is especially important in situations where emergencies and life-threatening environments require immediate action and manual activation would compromise officer safety. Additionally, the system has numerous event logging options to categorize videos for matching to a department’s video retention policy or to tag a spot within a video as an event marker, such as when evidence is tossed from a moving vehicle.
At 800x480, the resolution of the Veretos Large 5-inch HD Display is 2.5x the resolution of any other MVS system currently on the market. With a 5-inch display, it is also the largest display with a 33% larger viewable area compared to that of the nearest competitor. The modern and intuitive Veretos User Interface was designed for maximum ease of use. The spacious touchscreen displays large, easy-to-use buttons needed for real-world usage in a fast-paced environment.
The Veretos MVS comes equipped with the latest high-speed 802.11ac WiFi and an external antenna port to support roof-mounted, high-gain antennas for an even faster and stronger connection to the station. With its Advanced and Intuitive Software, the Veretos user interface was designed to be familiar and intuitive, providing ease of use for the officer. The Veretos solution also supports complex event logging and classification as well as flexible video data storage and management options. Evidence can be uploaded locally to a server behind department firewalls, or users can leverage the Microsoft Azure Government cloud platform.
In addition, the Veretos system uses one of the most powerful backend Video Management Tools in the industry built by IRSA Video. The highly scalable software provides dashboard overview, media management and remote management of an entire fleet of Veretos systems. Additionally, Veretos Enterprise was built with options to handle any type of digital media.
