San Jose PD Selects IPVideo Corp. to Upgrade Interview Recording Platform
IPVideo Corp. helped SJPD ramp up a high-definition recording system to assist officers in recording interviews quickly and efficiently.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose Police Department (SJPD) has selected IPVideo Corp. to help improve and upgrade its current interview recording platform.
SJPD implemented IPVideo Corp.’s AVfusion solution, which is said to be an easy-to-use, network-based A/V recording system designed for police interview rooms where recording frame-by-frame, synchronized audio and HD video is critical.
The system allows law enforcement professionals to quickly search and retrieve recordings from a secure desktop computer.
SJPD employs more than 970 sworn officers along with many civilian personnel. The department is administered by a command staff that includes the chief, assistant chief and four deputy chiefs. The command staff presides over an operations command center with four bureaus comprised of 11 divisions with more than 50 specialized units and assignments.
The Bureau of Investigations is divided into four primary groups: gangs, sexual assault, robbery and homicide with six interview rooms in the department headquarters that consists of 45 detectives who conduct interviews from within these primary groups.
High Def Solution Provides Flexibility
With an older, analog interview recording system in place, the SJPD wanted to upgrade to a new recording platform that would utilize HD camera technology and provide more flexibility with officers having the ability to access recorded interviews on workstations throughout the facility over the network, while maintaining viewing capabilities in a command type room.
“We are really pleased that we found AVfusion which allows us to record all of our rooms simultaneously and in HD quality,” says SJPD Lieutenant Paul Spagnoli. “Our officers enjoy being able to queue rooms in advance helping to streamline the overall recording process and look forward to more of the features that IPVideo Corporation will be releasing in the future.”
Based in Bay Shore, N.Y., IPVideo Corp. is an industry pioneer in network-based surveillance recording solutions. The company’s systems are deployed across a range of vertical markets, including Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and municipalities, utilities, healthcare facilities, school districts and universities.
