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

Maryland Capitol Police Acquires Forensic Video Analysis Equipment

March 04, 2011  | 

Maryland's general services department has acquired Ocean Systems' dTective forensic video analysis system for deployment by the Capitol Police in government buildings in Annapolis and Baltimore, according to the company.

The department acquired the system with a grant from the governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention. These new tools will allow investigators to enhance video and images recorded in less than optimal conditions, including poor lighting and varying weather conditions. Once processed, hidden details can be revealed that can help direct or solve cases more efficiently, which should also result in lowering their investigation costs, according to the company.

After talking with Ocean Systems and reviewing all of the professional tools included with its market leading dTective forensic solution, the Department of General Services (DGS) elected to obtain a mobile version called "The Flyaway." Investigators will receive training at Ocean Systems' main office located in Burtonsville, Md.

There are many ways law enforcement can leverage these tools to help solve crimes more quickly. Key features of this technology include the ability to capture and enhance proprietary security and surveillance videos, still images, and audio from multiple sources. Video evidence can also be stabilized or important areas can be clarified with super resolution. Areas of the video can be highlighted or objects such as faces can be blurred to protect the innocent when broadcasting evidence over TV channels.

"Just last month the University of Maryland College Park added a similar system," according to Charles Guarino, vice president of Ocean Systems. "As a Maryland native and resident myself, having completed all my schooling here including a degree from the University of Maryland, it is a great source of pride that our tools are used to help keep fellow Marylanders safe."

The Department of General Services-Maryland Capitol Police (DGS-MCP) provides law enforcement and security for Maryland State Government buildings and personnel located at its two principal office centers in Annapolis and Baltimore. DGS-MCP is also responsible for safety and security for the Maryland State House of Representatives and Senate buildings.
