With the ever-increasing needs for enforcement transparency, the body-worn cameras have been extensively used among law enforcement agencies, which may result in better accountability between the police officers and civilians. By exposing bad or proper behaviors, the body-worn cameras also have a robust deterrent against misuse of force by the police officers and violent behavior of citizens.
It is essential to select the right body-worn camera for every genuine requirement. Here, Hytera presents its LTE body-worn camera VM780. It can capture HD videos to provide evidence for trial. More importantly, this camera has the potential to send live videos back to the control center over a 4G network. This helps the dispatcher know exactly what is happening, enhance real-time situational awareness and facilitate decision-making.
One of the most remarkable aspects is the 216-degree rotatable HD camera. It enables users to easily adjust the angle and capture pictures or videos in an ideal view, without removing the camera from the gear. Meanwhile, the 116-degree wide-angle lens captures more of a scene with minimal distortion. In dark conditions, the camera can still recognize a human face 5 meters, or outline 10 meters away thanks to its infrared night vision capability.
The body-worn camera VM780 uses H.265 video compression technology to save 50% storage and bandwidth compared with H.264, without sacrificing video quality. Equipped with a 3,500 mAh battery, this camera helps up to 9 hours of continuous recording. The camera provides a 64 GB/128 GB storage capacity, which is equal to 40/80 hours of recorded footage.
Improve Situational Awareness
The LTE body-worn camera VM780 uses the dual-stream technology. When the camera streams live video to the control center over 4G/LTE network, it can additionally save the same video locally. This allows dispatchers and responders to share the same data in real time, making response quicker and more efficient. The body-worn camera provides positioning services by using GPS, GLONASS, BDS, and indoor Bluetooth. Users can carry out positioning, historical tune playback, E-fence, and patrol route planning on the map.
Protect Your Data and People
Hytera embeds AES-256 encryption in the body-worn camera for unbreakable data security. All footage recorded by the camera is encrypted and only accessible to approved users. The video is automatically tagged with time stamp, device ID, and user ID upon recording for tamper-proofing. If the battery goes off suddenly during recording, the body-worn camera can automatically recover the corrupted video file after power-on, so that users will never lose any critical moment.
The LTE body-worn camera VM780 comes with a dedicated emergency key. By pressing the key to alert dispatchers for help in an emergency, it helps users remain safe and secure.
Be a PoC radio
Hytera LTE body-worn camera VM780 also serves as a push-to-talk over cellular (PoC) radio. Over 3G, 4G, or WLAN networks, this camera enables users to make a voice call certainly by pressing the push-to-talk (PTT) key. Thanks to the advanced noise reduction technology, the camera picks up the voice while getting rid of the ambient noise. Meanwhile, the camera has two effective 1.5-watt speakers to deliver loud and clear audio throughout the call, even in quite noisy environments. The body-worn camera can also be paired with a narrowband radio through Bluetooth to act as a remote speaker microphone of the latter.
Rugged and Durable
Hytera LTE body-worn camera VM780 is strong and difficult towards the rigor of the job site. This IP-68 certified camera is completely dust-proof and water-resistant. Meeting the MIL-STD-810G standards, the body-worn camera can withstand a drop from 2 meters. Even in harsh conditions such as dust and rain, the body-worn camera still works in a stable and reliable manner.
Comprehensive accessories and solutions
Hytera gives a entire solution to manage the body-worn camera and digital evidence from the field to the court. This solution consists of the mobile device management (MDM), integrated device station (IDS) and digital evidence management (DEM). The MDM can program and improve body-worn cameras in batch remotely, to enhance working efficiency. The IDS can collect information from body-worn cameras automatically, to query and replay the evidence. The DEM can process massive amount of information and provide a effective search function to rapidly discover electronic evidence, and support role-based access control and user authorization for security.
In the meantime, the body-worn camera provides a broad vary of accessories like belt clip, power adapter, USB earphone, data cable, multi-unit charger and strap to fit distinctive situations.
