Vievu Announces Cloud-Based Storage for Public Safety

June 11, 2012  | 

On-body video vendor Vievu has introduced a cloud-based storage service via Amazon Web Services that allows users to store, share, review, and access secure and encrypted video evidence for $10 a month per camera.

According to a study sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, 93% of police-misconduct cases in which video is available result in the officer's exoneration; 50% of complaints are immediately withdrawn when video evidence is used; and 94% of citizens support the use of video.

Moreover, on-body cameras provide a "police perspective" and factual accuracy into critical incidents while dismissing erroneous eye-witness accounts, and offer the only foil against the staggering monetary lawsuits brought against law enforcement agencies nationwide, according to the company.

"Our mission at VIEVU is to make body worn video technology as easily accessible and as cost effective as possible," said Steve Lovell, Vievu's managing director. "The ability to store video evidence in the cloud represents a significant cost-savings opportunity for police and other security organizations, who can now pay only for the storage used per month, and, just as important, can ramp up or down as needed."
