Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Alabama City's HD Surveillance System Drops Crime Reporting 75 Percent

September 15, 2010  | 

The Selma (Ala.) Police Department and city has deployed a high definition (HD) surveillance system to boost community safety and reduce criminal activity.

The Avigilon HD Surveillance System was deployed at the Selma PD and at the Selma Housing Authority's George Washington Carver complex, a 215-apartment facility with more than 500 tenants, and has helped reduce criminal activity, according to Avigilon.

A citywide HD system connecting the Selma PD and the Selma Housing Authority offers greater surveillance coverage across the municipality. Since installing the system, Selma has seen a reduction in criminal activity at GWC—crime reporting has fallen 75 percent, from 40 to less than 10 incidents per week.

The system is more reliable and functional than the Selma PD's previous analog-based system, and has become an important investigative tool, according to Chief William Riley.

The city has installed more than 30 HD cameras ranging from three to five megapixels to monitor the exterior of the GWC complex and at police headquarters to monitor the parking lot, main lobby, booking rooms, holding cells, Magistrate's Office, and the Selma Municipal Court.

The SPD installed several Avigilon analog video encoders to create a hybrid surveillance system that dramatically and cost-effectively improves the performance of its existing analog cameras.

The Avigilon HD surveillance system is monitored around-the-clock at both the SPD and GWC complex and stores up to 45 days of footage.

"The city has taken advantage of a wide area network to weave together an effective information system that addresses the needs of multiple organizations, and at the same time, now has the ability to investigate and share indisputable video forensic detail," according to Dave Tynan, Avigilon's vice president of global sales and marketing.

Selma manages the HD surveillance system using Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with HD Stream Management.
