Abbotsford, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 11th, 2014 / Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (TSX.V: GSI) is pleased to announce the launch of its high definition body worn recorder and camera for the law enforcement market.
The high definition wearable device (“PR-104“) is a personal high definition recorder and camera designed specifically for police work, which is activated by the officer with a single push of a button. Built rugged, the PR-104 will record high definition video (1080p or 720p) in stunning clarity, both day and night. The device also has integrated Infrared LED’s that allow the PR-104 to see and record images in total darkness.
The PR-104 is rated IP67, meaning that the device is completely dust tight and can be submerged in 3 feet of water without any harmful effects. A fully charged battery will allow for 24 hours of standby time with a record time of 8 hours. In addition, it survives drops from up to 9.8 feet (3 meters).
The PR-104 has a 160? video capture angle. Most human’s eyes can see scenes up to a 100? angle. This super wide angle is achieved without any noticeable distortion in the image. The 160? capture angle allows for catching the entire scene even when the officer is operating in very close confines.
On the rear is a 2-inch (measured diagonally) LED display, which allows the officer to review video immediately. In normal operation the LED screen is off to extend battery life. The PR-104 can be configured to display the devices unique serial number, officer ID, day, hour, minute and seconds. This provides a positive record of which device captured the video and at what time.
When officers return from duty they will place the PR-104 personal video recorder in a Data Management Terminal (“DMT-16“). The DMT-16 is a freestanding terminal that allows up to 16 PR-104′s to be charged and have the audio and video data downloaded automatically. Once the video/audio data has been downloaded, the DMT-16 can be configured to automatically erase the memory of the PR-104 so that it is ready to go for the next shift. The DMT-16 generates usage statistic automatically and has the ability to be configured to upload data to a central server.
Once the data from a PR-104 has been transferred to the DMT-16 the video is then uploaded to a centralized server running Document Management Software (“DMS“). DMS can either be run locally on city servers or it can be provided as a hosted solution.
Doug Dyment, President and CEO of Gatekeeper, stated, “Our initial field trials and demonstrations with County Law Enforcement and School District Law Enforcement personnel was met with positive results. The high definition imaging produced by the PR-104 is superior to traditional analog video and provides law enforcement personnel an extra set of eyes, ears and memory as they engage in the task at hand. We are excited about the expansion of our law enforcement product offering. The PR-104 expands our XFORCE(TM) law enforcement product line, which includes an in-car video system. Gatekeeper will now provide law enforcement officers with a wearable device capable of capturing high definition video and audio for evidence from crime scenes, highway patrol or specific field operations”.
