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 on-demand 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 session, 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

IPVideo Corporation Selected by San Jose PD to Upgrade Existing Interview Recording Platform

September 08, 2017  | 

IPVideo Corporation, manufacturer of IP-based video surveillance and command center solutions, announced that it has been selected by the San Jose (CA) Police Department (SJPD) to help improve and upgrade their current interview recording platform. The SJPD implemented IPVideo Corporation's AVfusion solution, which is an easy-to-use network-based audio/video recording system designed for police interview rooms where recording frame-by-frame, synchronized audio and HD video is critical. The system allows law enforcement professionals to quickly search and retrieve recordings in one simple process – all from a secure desktop computer. 

With over one million people to keep safe, the SJPD employs over 970 sworn officers along with many civilian personnel. The department is administered by a command staff that includes the chief, assistant chief, and four deputy chiefs, presiding over an operations command center with four bureaus comprised of 11 divisions with more than 50 specialized units and assignments. The Bureau of Investigations is divided into four primary groups—gangs, sexual assault, robbery, and homicide—with six interview rooms in the department headquarters that consists of 45 detectives that conduct interviews from within these primary groups.

With an older, analog interview recording system in place, the SJPD wanted to upgrade to a new recording platform that would utilize HD camera technology and provide more flexibility with officers having the ability to access recorded interviews on workstations throughout the facility over the network, while maintaining viewing capabilities in a command type room. "We are really pleased that we found AVfusion which allows us to record all of our rooms simultaneously and in HD quality," states SJPD Lieutenant Paul Spagnoli. "Our officers enjoy being able to queue rooms in advance, helping to streamline the overall recording process, and look forward to more of the features that IPVideo Corporation will be releasing in the future."

"We offer a unique approach to network-based recording solutions that are tailored to meet the specific needs of police departments across the country," states David Antar, President at IPVideo Corporation.
