Police departments across the country are increasingly deploying body-worn cameras to better protect and serve their communities. Nearly every large police department in a nationwide survey said they plan to move forward with BWCs, with 95 percent having either implemented a body camera system or committed to doing so. However, medium-sized police departments (those with about 50 – 250 officers) appear to be facing the biggest challenges with when rolling out BWCs to their forces. The major issue is cost – not just for the actual cameras, but for handling the data the cameras produce. The demands for video storage are unprecedented for many police departments, which don’t have enough space on servers or hard drives to store the additional data.
Toshiba Surveillance and IP Video Group, a business unit of Toshiba Information Systems, Inc., has expanded its line of Percept cloud-powered network video recorders designed to enhance the management of IP video networks. Percept has a universal sign-on that lets users access their recorders from anywhere, with almost any device. This does away with the integration hassles common with IP networks, so tech support time is reduced, plus system authorization is better safeguarded by the elimination of improperly stored passwords. Percept NVRs make it easier to export, share, and download video to the cloud, and to monitor the health of the recorder remotely using Toshiba’s MySurveillix service.
As LTO storage technology is beginning to take root in the video surveillance retention market, a lawsuit such as this described below, could ultimately reduce the number of sources to obtain this storage technology and would more than likely increase costs thus stunting the acceptance of this technology in the physical security market. With companies like Quantum and SpectraLogic and others showcasing the low-cost option of long-term video retention when using LTO storage technologies, such a supply-chain lawsuit will not help grow this market.
