Motorola Solutions Transforms Body-Worn Cameras for Public Safety
Innovative solution combines body-worn video camera, radio speaker and microphone, and cloud-based data storage
- New body-worn video camera and radio microphone and speaker combines voice communications and recording, video, pictures and emergency alerting into compact and easy-to-use device
- Cloud-based storage solution enables secure video management with superior technology at lower costs than solutions on the market today
- The video camera, radio microphone and speaker offered together with the storage system simplify evidence gathering and management for law enforcement
Responding to law enforcement demand, Motorola Solutions is transforming body-worn cameras and digital evidence management with the debut of its first-ever, three-in-one combination body-worn video camera, radio speaker, and microphone along with a new, cloud-based content management system.
The importance of capturing, storing and properly managing video evidence has never been greater for law enforcement agencies of all sizes. While use of body-worn cameras has widespread and growing acceptance with public safety agencies and the citizens they protect, the massive amounts of data cameras create needs to be managed and stored, at significant costs.
Motorola Solutions’ innovative end-to-end solution, the “Smart Interface” (Si) Si500 and Si300 Video Speaker Microphone (VSM) reduces the equipment officers carry by combining a state-of-the-art video camera and high-quality radio speaker microphone into one easy-to-use device. Using the Si500 or Si300 VSM in combination with “CommandCentral Vault,” a new cloud-based, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS)-compliant storage solution, will make evidence management significantly easier while lowering costs.
“A picture says a thousand words, and it’s true in our industry,” said Waukegan, Illinois, Police Sgt. David DeBaufer, whose officers recently experienced the new Si500 and Si300 models. “Having a body-worn camera combined with a radio microphone would be a benefit to the officer because it’s one less item that they are going to have to carry."
“After an incident that is not on video there are multiple people that have multiple perspectives of how an incident took place,” Waukegan Deputy Chief Keith Zupec said. “Now we will have that recorded and officers will be able to complete their reports after viewing that video, which will refresh their memory on how things occurred. It will be a more accurately and truthfully documented incident.”
Motorola Solutions’ Si500 and Si300 VSMs integrate voice communications, real-time video, still images and emergency alerting into one innovative design.
Both body-worn camera and remote radio speaker microphone, the compact Si500 VSM is a unique interface that extends the mission-critical performance of Motorola Solutions APX™ rCommandCentral Vault is a cloud-based application to securely store, review, manage and share digital evidence. It completes a digital evidence management solution when paired with the Si Series VSMs but can also stand alone and accept evidence gathered from any device. The system ensures end-to-end security that reduces any challenge to chain of custody for agencies.
