By downloading the video automatically, the potential for officers to remove or tamper with files is almost eliminated
Byron Center, MI (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
PRO-VISION, the leader in mobile video recording, has been working to help law enforcement agencies and private security companies increase data security and improve the simplicity of transferring and storing video files recorded. By introducing automatic video file transfer to the BODYCAM® BC-100 model body-worn video camera, PRO-VISION has done just that.
While body-worn video cameras are worn primarily to provide the officer's perspective in court as part of an effort to exonerate them from false accusations, the argument has been made that officers could potentially delete or tamper with video files. The BODYCAM BC-100 now has the capability to have video files automatically downloaded and securely filed when the camera is connected to a configured computer work station. By downloading the video automatically, the potential for officers to remove or tamper with files manually is eliminated and the chain-of -evidence is protected.
Another benefit of the automatic file transfer is the simplicity of the download process itself. Video download is as simple as each officer connecting their BODYCAM cameras to a computer work station at the end of each shift. The software then initiates the automatic download process to a designated evidence location and simultaneously charges the camera. When completed, the process provides each officer with a fully charged camera by the time they begin their next shift, and video from the previous day is backed up and removed off the camera.
