Body-worn video cameras are a vital asset for gathering valuable evidence during critical situations. A new technology for improved audio, image and video evidence has been unveiled. The VM682, a unique body camera that captures, stores and shares media from the field, is designed to operate standalone or as a bodycam/speaker microphone. Its rotating camera head, capturing high definition 1080p video at a rate of 60 frames per second and boasting an IP67 rating, makes this body camera ready for front-line action.
The technology was developed by Hytera, a leading global provider of Land Mobile Radio communications solutions.
The camera is useful across any market sector but especially where staff members interact with the public or for lone workers, including at schools, event venues, sports and leisure facilities. It is specifically designed for optimal use in tense situations. The camera system dramatically improves situational awareness, information gathering and evidence collection in the field, according to the company announcement on prnewswire.com.
Among the features – one-touch record buttons, simple menu options, long battery life and covert mode.
The innovative camera design offers dual microphones to capture clear audio and a camera with automatic infrared technology that can adapt to low light conditions. The body-worn camera with remote speaker mic allows users to initiate and receive voice communications, initiate an emergency alarm, and deliver real-time video to a control center.
This lightweight device boasts a 180° rotatable and 140° wide-angle lens, a 16-megapixel image sensor, six infrared LEDs and extensive battery life that can continuously record up to six hours.
With an intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI), users can review, manage, and share data simply and efficiently from their PC. To ensure the content captured remains tamper-proof and secure, operators can dock the device in the charger to export audio, video and other data to the evidence data management (EDM) platform. Additional connectivity is available via Wi-Fi to push information and support programming.
