Envision EES is proud to announce that we are submitting a proposal to the Raleigh Police Department to provide a complete Body Worn Camera solution. Our integrated solution includes one of our cornerstone services with our partner Zadara. By providing a metered on premises storage solution we are bringing all the cost advantages of a cloud storage solution while providing all the security of having an onsite data storage solutions. RPD will only pay for the data it stores, not have to purchase a 3 or 5 year capacity that requires an enormous upfront capital expenditure.
Additionally, through our VP360 Argus cameras (see above) we are able to provide a durable, integrated solution for RPD officers to wear every day. Highly dependable, quickly deployable and easy to operate these cameras will be a very economical solution for RPD to implement. In conjunction with vehicle mounted cameras and other city or department owned cameras our solution will provide a multi-point documented view of any incident.
Many local law enforcement agencies with body worn camera initiatives are surprised at how quickly it becomes cost- prohibitive to store video evidence to meet state and federal retention policy requirements. In addition, multi-tenant cloud solutions that share resources with other applications create security and chain of custody issues.
The VP360 Argus Body Camera Solution provides the unique option to reside either on-premise, within the agency’s own four walls, or in a remote cloud data center — whichever the agency prefers. It is CJIS compliant, infinitely scalable, readily configured, and delivers industry-leading reliability with a 99.999% uptime guarantee. Because the solution is provided as a service, the VP360 Argus eliminates typical video storage equipment maintenance and troubleshooting hassles.
Proper system integration is essential.
