Beside having to mitigate the potentially dangerous (even life-threatening) situations they encounter on a daily basis, police officers and other law-enforcement agents also need to be able to prove that they've acted according to regulations at all times. For this reason, Motorola has just introduced the MVX1000 In-Car Digital Video System, which has been designed to capture critical evidence and protect law enforcement officers from spurious false charges
The solution from Motorola features a rugged design to protect against water, dust, vibration, heat, cold, shock and other rigors of today's law enforcement vehicles (MIL-STD-810G and IP54). Its compact footprint makes it particularly suitable for installation in the trunk or passenger cabin, allowing the best use of valuable vehicle space, and also leverages its flexible, touch-screen interface using either an in-car computer like the MW810 Mobile Workstation, a vehicle-mounted laptop, or the dedicated 5-inch display.
Since we're on the topic of interfaces, it's also interesting to mention that this thing comes packed with a mission-critical user interface designed with input from public safety personnel, to allow the officer to concentrate on the situation at hand. Furthermore, the system supports high-speed wireless data upload, featuring onboard 802.11n Wireless LAN capability with 3x3 MIMO, allowing the system to upload data up to six times faster than an 802.11g solution.
Last, but certainly not least, we'll have to mention that the solution
comes with an advanced backend video management application developed in partnership with NICE Systems Inc., and based on the NICE Inform multimedia incident information management solution, providing the ability to easily find, review, and export video. Law enforcement can reconstruct an incident by synchronizing video, audio, location, and data streams from one or multiple vehicles into a single incident.
"The MVX1000 is Motorola
's latest innovation in next generation public safety solutions, designed with police officers' needs in mind," said Rod Guy, director of Motorola Mobile Computing Operations. "We collaborated extensively with law enforcement agencies nationwide to develop a product that delivers intuitive video and workforce mobility capabilities to maximize effectiveness."
