During the IACP 2023 show in San Diego on Oct. 14-17 i-PRO Americas will show an array of security and safety solutions for law enforcement.
Houston—At IACP 2023 in booth #1127, i-PRO Americas Inc., a global manufacturer of professional security solutions for surveillance and public safety, will demonstrate its latest range of security solutions for law enforcement professionals.
The company says its portfolio of public safety and law enforcement solutions includes body-worn cameras, in-vehicle video systems, interview room video solutions, as well as on-premises and cloud-hosted digital evidence management solutions.
“We design our public safety products specifically for the on-the-job rigors of police, fire, and EMS crews. i-PRO products deliver unparalleled reliability with a less than 1% failure rate for in-car and body-worn camera systems since 2004, affirming our commitment to excellence,” says David O’Connor, director, public safety division, i-PRO.
“We know how important cybersecurity and regulatory compliance are to our customers, so we develop complete solutions that automate processes to enable users to focus on the job, not the technology.”
In addition to developing a range of imaging and evidence management offerings, the company develops AI-driven software and intelligent analytics, such as automated redaction to protect personal privacy. i-PRO states its open-platform approach to Public Safety and Security solutions supports integration with partners like Genetec to create CloUDE, a digital evidence management system which utilizes the features of Genetec Clearance. i-PRO says customers maintain full control of their DEMS and VMS strategies, with full-featured choices using traditional servers and storage, hybrid storage solutions, or cloud-hosted services.
Moreover, at IACP, attendees will learn about i-PRO’s latest Interview Room Video Solution. The company says the system is simple to operate and offers automated activation to ensure every interview is recorded. The new VMS dual-mode architecture supports multiple room monitoring and it helps to ensure that video and audio evidence is captured reliably.
Body-Worn Cameras, In-Vehicle Video Systems Highlight i-Pro IACP Booth
Taking a closer look at some of the products i-PRO Americas will exhibit at the IACP 2023 booth, the company will feature its latest body-worn cameras, in-vehicle video systems, and its latest data collection solutions.
Some of those products on display include:
Body-worn camera solutions:
i-PRO’s BWC4000 body-worn camera features a 12-hour field-swappable battery that is said to provide law enforcement and security officers with extended camera operation without having to deal with charging cables. Officers can quickly tag videos with essential metadata using an easy-to-use LCD menu. Options such as automated activation in response to specific events such as drawing a weapon help to ensure that important video evidence is available every time. Designed to provide officers with a more durable and reliable way to capture video and audio evidence in virtually any conditions the body-worn cameras utilize the industry-standard Klick Fast mounting system, which is said to provide a choice of options to secure the camera. The cameras themselves are built to the MIL-STD 810H military standard with an IP67 weather-resistant rating.
In-Car Video System:
The company’s the ICV4000 in-car video (ICV) system incorporates a video processing unit (VPU4000), as well as wireless networking, enhanced security features, and improved image quality. The system employs MPEG-4 recording, eliminating the need for proprietary media formats to provide a more streamlined approach for reviewing and sharing video. The ICV4000 can utilize 4G/5G connectivity from a mobile router or the squad MDT (Mobile Data Terminal) for evidence uploads and live streaming.
i-PRO notes the in-car system also supports up to five total cameras and several options for front-view cameras. The ICV4000 can provide 1080p Full HD recording with a wider field of view and 360 degree coverage around a vehicle. Additionally, the system incorporates embedded Bluetooth (BLE) and two wireless LAN modules to support seamless integration with i-PRO’s BWC4000. The system supports up to 16 triggers for system activation or status indicators.
Panoramic front cameras for police vehicles:
According i-PRO Americas, IACP attendees will also be able to see its WV-VCF41P 4K Panoramic Front Camera for police vehicles. A component of i-PRO’s in-car video (ICV) system, the camera is designed for law enforcement agencies seeking wide-angle coverage and high-resolution capture of video evidence from the vehicle.
The company also points out that unlike traditional forward-facing cameras, the WV-VCF41P provides a full 150-degree field of view. The lens is specifically designed to minimize distortion and edge warping, resulting in the widest angle offered. Behind the lens, the camera’s 4K sensor is i-PRO’s highest resolution sensor for mobile video evidence applications. With support for forensic zooming into areas of interest without image blurring, the WV-VCF41P is designed to produce high levels of image quality.
Unified digital evidence management:
Wrapping up i-PRO’s IACP display of body-worn cameras, in-vehicle video system displays is the company’s in-car video system and law enforcement cameras. i-PRO boasts these cameras enable officers to easily upload video evidence into the CloUDE digital evidence management system (powered by Genetec Clearance) using either Wi-Fi, a mobile router, or a mobile data terminal with cellular connection. CloUDE allows officers and investigators to store, manage, review, and share evidence from their in-vehicle or body-worn cameras efficiently and easily from within a single application. Authorized individuals can share cases and digital video evidence with cooperating agencies, prosecutors, attorneys, or members of the media. Secure access and chain of custody are controlled through straightforward policies managed in the application.
Additionally, advanced logging creates an audit trail of all user actions, available for management review at any time.
