Upland, CA, July 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- RoboVu, LLC recently announced that they were selected to deliver Phase 1 of a city-wide enterprise video management solution starting with in-car video for the Lompoc California Police Department. RoboVu partnered with Insight Video Net to design the complete solution comprised of video and audio from in-car cameras, traffic cameras, interview room cameras, jail cameras, special event cameras and back end digital asset management. Eventually this solution will offer a bridge to the private sector to allow secured sites like banks and sensitive sites like schools to be managed with one video and audio asset center.
“We evaluated the in-car video solutions from multiple organizations over the course of 60 days and selected the RoboVu & Insight Video Net solution,” said Police Captain Larry Ralston. “We were looking for a total solution that was feature rich, easy-to-use, cost-effective, had a good track record for uptime and their solution fit the bill. More importantly, our goal is to have one partner that handles the computer/video from the patrol cars and the fixed video that we want to address in Phase 2 and Phase 3. Having one organization like RoboVu oversee and manage the project addresses all the concerns undertaking such a large project.”
In phase 1, Lompoc California Police Department will be outfitted with Robo III’s (rugged mobile data computers) and RoboCAM (rugged in-car video) from RoboVu. The RoboCAM solution uses the integrated software, RoboEYE, that officers will use to tag events in the field. Video will wirelessly upload from the vehicle to the server upon its return to the police station. Video collected from the vehicles will be automatically managed as evidence using Insight Video Net’s CMS Flex software that also provides tight audit trails for each file that Lompoc collects. In Phase 2 and Phase 3, Lompoc plans to use CMS Flex to manage all other video collected from within the department and from the public, as well as other digital evidence such as crime scene photos and 9-1-1 audio files using the same evidentiary format and tight audit trail capabilities.
“We are excited to continue to work with such a forward thinking and strategic agency as Lompoc Police,” said Ed Foster, RoboVu CEO & Co-Founder. “We’ve worked with this agency for the past five years and have been impressed with their long range plans for continuing to expand their technology infrastructure to increase their efficiencies that overall increase public safety. The RoboCAM solution is only the first step in their plan and they are looking to the future to continue to expand their existing infrastructure to meet their growing needs with our RoboSPY solution that handles fixed cameras and audio assets.”
