Panasonic i-PRO Allies With Genetec on Cloud-Based Digital Evidence Solution
CloUDE Powered by Genetec is said to offer the added versatility and option of storing video evidence and data in the Cloud versus onsite.
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America has collaborated with Genetec to offer a Cloud-based digital evidence management system (DEMS) for law enforcement customers.
The new solution, CloUDE Powered by Genetec, is said to offer the added versatility and option of storing video evidence and data in the Cloud versus on-site.
CloUDE Powered by Genetec works directly with Panasonic i-PRO’s body-worn cameras (MK3 and BWC4000) and in-vehicle camera (MK3 and VPU4000) systems and is said to allow law enforcement agencies to retain complete ownership of all evidence and metadata.
Additionally, officers and investigators can gather digital evidence from a variety of sources, and easily store, manage, review and share it from within a single application, according to an announcement. Cases and digital evidence can also be shared with different parties, and access is controlled through security policies managed in the application. Plus, audit trails log all user actions to maintain chain of custody and are available for management review at any time.
“This innovative law enforcement solution, developed in partnership with Genetec, enables agencies to reduce the amount of time and money spent on evidence management with complete confidence that critical data is secure,” states Bill Brennan, president, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America. “With this addition to our public safety offering, i-PRO provides an end-to-end digital evidence solution — from video capture to evidence storage and sharing.”
“We’re excited to work with i-PRO and collaborate with their public safety group,” says Christian Morin, vice president of Cloud services and CSO at Genetec. “With an increasing amount of highly sensitive video being collected and managed by public safety and law enforcement agencies, the need for a secure, scalable solution that helps them streamline their operations while protecting data and individuals’ privacy is critical. This Cloud-based solution makes this accessible to agencies of all sizes.”
CloUDE Powered by Genetec will be available from Panasonic i-PRO through its resellers effective April 15, according to the announcement.
