Law enforcement, homeland security, surveillance, emergency response and military operations may span a range of operations, but they all share a crucial need for a detailed, real-time picture of rapidly changing events from various field locations.
Leading law enforcement agencies have learned that there's no better way to evaluate the nuances of a critical situation than through live video with picture quality normally seen in TV news broadcast. And with advances in video capture, transmission, management and sharing, it's a powerful enhancement that agencies can now rely upon as routinely as they once did voice communications alone.
Emergency responders can capture video using a mobile pack in places vehicles wouldnt be able to reach because of blocked roads Imagine taking the pulse of civil unrest from many points in the thick of the action and from rooftops above the crowd, using proactive monitoring and policing to help calm situations before they escalate. Or streaming live video to central command from fire-fighting ground crews, trucks and helicopters, providing key information to coordinate and mobilize resources from multiple fire departments. Hostage negotiations, large public events, transportation safety or homeland security. No matter how complex the scenario, analysts can use real-time broadcast-quality video to get the real story as events unfold.
Using video to make critical, often life-and-death decisions, however, requires technology that goes far beyond the limitations of body cams or static surveillance cameras. Truly effective mobile live video surveillance must work seamlessly within the organization's existing digital infrastructure while delivering five key capabilities:
1. Respond Quickly
Cost-effectively deploy and re-deploy equipment as the situation dictates, with compact, lightweight, portable systems, rugged modular components and long battery life.
2. Capture Video Immediately
Start recording and transmitting professional-quality HD video with the simple push of a button. Or multiply resources by transmitting video from any smart device with a simple mobile app.
3. Transmit Signals Reliably
Securely send encrypted video, even in areas with weak wireless networks. Transmit from cars, armored vehicles, motorcycles, trains or helicopters without interruption.
4. Manage Information in Real Time
Stream live video to command centers for evaluation, and to in-field mobile devices for immediate response.
5. Share and Archive Video Easily
Distribute live video inside the organization, to other agencies or to news media. Automatically record all video for archiving, analysis or legal evidence.
In order to meet these stringent criteria, law enforcement units around the world are turning to California-based TVU Networks, a leader in IP-based live video solutions. Long a standard among large broadcast station groups, TVU's cost-effective, simple-to-use digital technology offers the best-in-class solution for delivering live video over wireless networks. Whether performing surveillance or emergency response, TVU's solutions leverage into existing workflows to help organizations transform traditional hard-wired operations to a predominately wireless IP-based infrastructure. They're designed to be flexible and scalable, so the platform can grow and change with the organization's needs.
