Digital Ally, a provider of fleet vehicle video systems used by governmental entities, says its DVM-250Plus Video Event Data Recorders (VEDRs) has been upgraded so it is now able to utilize eight cameras while maintaining a dual recording feed, rather than the three cameras that it had been limited to.
In addition, by customizing the automatic record triggers to activate specific cameras, users can gain the best angle while minimizing file sizes and simplifying review, Digital Ally says. Also, to balance privacy and file size with storage, wireless transfer and ease of review concerns, the recording timer is customizable, the firm says.
To ensure that important information regarding an incident is captured, pre-event recording saves video and optional audio prior to the event that triggered the recording, the company says. That minimizes the file size of recordings for wireless transfer and storage, as well as providing privacy and review benefits by only recording what is needed, the firm says.
The internal memory may now also be set to continuously record on a loop while only event recordings are stored on the SD card in case additional footage is required, Digital Ally says. Reporting software is also available to identify strengths and weaknesses or run system checks, according to the company. Administrators can customize reports or use default options, including:
- Video details such as basic recording information, user-defined marks and notes, file information and activity
- Video summaries, including a synopsis of each recording
- Device activities, including the number of events and tallies for each trigger listed by specific video system
- Device exceptions, including a list of devices not uploaded to the system recently
- Device histories, including recordings arranged according to specific video system
- For operators recordings can be arranged according to specific users
- Recording triggers in which recordings are arranged according to the trigger
Further, the software also provides management, playback, duplication, archiving and video usage logs.
Streaming capabilities are now available to view incidents as they occur, Digital Ally says. Compressed, high-quality video and/or audio may be transmitted at low bitrates using a 3G or 4G modem or Ethernet and may be accessed by smart phones or computerized devices with security access, the firm says.
