NSW Police equipped with body cameras

NSW Police on the beat are being fitted with body cameras that will allow them to collect visual evidence and record their interactions with others.

The first frontline officers attached the cameras to their uniforms on Thursday as part of a rollout to city and transport police.

Encrypted footage with audio is captured and saved or can be live-streamed to remote command posts.

Police will use the cameras by manually pressing record when they need to take footage.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Steve Cullen said the cameras would be attached to the front of an officer’s body and video taken from their point of view.

“While the cameras will be constantly viewing the officer’s point of view, the officer must initiate recording to actually capture footage in the memory of the camera,” Assistant Commissioner Cullen said.

“There will be a 30-second back capture of vision only, which can allow for the visual recording of an important piece of evidence.”

Once the footage is downloaded onto the secure police database, all footage on the camera is erased.

Deputy Premier and Police Minister Troy Grant said cameras would be used just like a notepad and would help officers called to domestic violence cases.

“Body-worn video cameras could also assist in domestic violence cases where victims may be vulnerable and reluctant to give evidence.”

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said the footage would be helpful for gathering evidence to support prosecutions but also for police to use as a training and education tool.

“A picture is worth a thousand words, and if you’re recorded doing the wrong thing – no matter who you are – the evidence will be tough to dispute,” the commissioner said.

He said trials of the equipment found the cameras reduced the time spent on paperwork, enhanced the preparation of evidence and improved the behaviour of officers and the public.

The government will spend $4 million over the next two years rolling out the cameras to three local area commands and the police transport command.

All frontline officers across the state are expected to be kitted out with body cameras once the initial roll-out has been trialled.

Nokia News & Events July 2015 – Nokia Networks, du first in UAE to use telco drones for better network planning & faster optimization

Dubai, UAE – 07 July 2015

In yet another noteworthy step toward a smart city future, Nokia Networks and du, the Middle East’s fastest growing telecommunications service provider, employed drones carrying smartphones with network testing applications to analyze du’s network. The test was carried out at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai Sports City*, which has a seating capacity of 25,000 people. The Proof of Concept (PoC) gathered network data and provided Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for a speedy performance test and efficient network optimization actions. Telco drones were also used for tower inspections, radio planning and Line of Sight (LoS) testing between radio towers.

Automated testing and analysis is more efficient than traditional manual walk tests, as drones can cover the desired area quicker. Additionally, the test data is collected automatically and sent to a server so that it can be instantly processed at Nokia Networks’ Global Delivery Center (GDC) for immediate reporting and any necessary actions to improve network performance.

Telco drones were also used for tower inspections to reduce the number of times technicians need to climb up and down a telecom tower. It is especially important when weather conditions make climbing too dangerous. This method delivers a high-quality site audit with unique and detailed panoramic and top-down views of the lattice tower captured in one pass. Drones can also help supervise the quality of installation by remotely monitoring the installation via wireless video streaming.

The drones were also used for radio planning and Line of Sight (LoS) testing**. The engineers knew if a frequency used was impacted by trees, if there was sufficient power to cover the distance, what the simulated latency would look like and what performance over such a connection could be expected. This helped achieve optimal site design, establish a clear LoS, as well as suitable antenna height and site location.

Solution details at a glance:
– In the PoC, these demonstrations were carried out in close collaboration with Nokia Networks’ partners Dubai Sports City, Ascom Network Testing, DroneWorks FZ LLC, and Secutronic FZE.

– Smartphones pre-installed with the TEMS™ Pocket software from Ascom Network Testing

– High-capability drones from Secutronic were used: INSPIRE1 for network optimization at the stadium, and MICRODRONES md4-1000 for tower inspection, LoS and radio site planning

Wireless video broadcast camera were used from m-View Live Video Pty Ltd for remote monitoring

Marwan BinShakar, Vice President – Mobile Access Network & Operations at du, said: “Innovation is the lifeblood of the UAE’s smart city future, and we are proud to successfully demonstrate our network capabilities. Together with Nokia Networks, we are satisfied with the results from the use of drones for network planning and faster optimization in specific location at Dubai International Stadium, as well as for radio planning and tower inspection which will result in greater efficiency and improved safety.”

Tony Awad, Head of du Customer Team, Nokia Networks, said: “Drones are becoming a common phenomenon across the world and multiple sectors are embracing the benefits drones bring such as faster deliveries in logistics or delivering emergency services in health care. In the telecoms sector, certain operators have already embraced the use of drones for telecom tower audits, and we are proud to be able to demonstrate multiple use cases using drones with du in the UAE. With the use of drones we continue to bring innovation and automation into our service delivery to make our networks even more efficient and reliable.”

The Australian January 2015 – Fire chief see benefits of camera with own eyes

 WEARABLE technology could change the decades-old practice of gauging the colour of smoke and relying on third-hand information to fight fires and save lives.

Fire & Rescue NSW is set to begin trials of a body-worn video camera that will live stream footage of fires back to its command centre. The command post will for the first time be able to see what is happening inside a burning home, building or site.

“That’s a view that we’ve never been actually able to have (at the command post) before,” said ­Graham Tait, ‎operational communications systems officer at Fire & Rescue.

Mr Tait said senior officers at the command centre needed to know what was happening inside and outside the affected area so decisions were made that ensured fires were fought correctly.

“Decisions on how many ­resources are required and where people need to be will be a lot ­better,” Mr Tait said.

“(This is because) they can ­actually see with their own eyes what’s happening and not rely on third-hand information or seeing the colour of the smoke — what we do currently.

“We will be able to put in tactics to resolve fires quicker, and if ­anybody’s trapped inside a building we’ll be able to rescue them faster.”

The video camera, dubbed Firecam and supplied by m-View, is about 100mm long, with the ­diameter of a 20c piece. It weighs 110g.

“They’re quite small and connect to a smartphone and broadcast from there. There’re no wires or cables or anything to connect to it,” Mr Tait said.

The camera can be attached to a firefighter’s shoulder, helmet or anywhere else and “we can see whatever they can see”, he said.

Live video is streamed back to base using a smartphone’s 3G or 4G connection.

The device captures video in high-definition on a storage card in the camera as it simultaneously broadcasts live.

While the video footage beamed to Fire & Rescue’s ­command post is not in high-­definition (as it would be too bandwidth-intensive), Mr Tait said it was “good enough to watch live”.

For reference or other purposes, the high-definition video can be downloaded from the storage card once the firefighter returns.

Fire & Rescue predominantly uses iPhones, but it would use an Android smartphone during the trials as m-View’s iPhone app for the wearable device was under development, he said.

The organisation is an existing customer of m-View, which allows firefighters to capture video using iPhones.

Mr Tait is not concerned about battery life, often the bane of many smartphone users.

He said most incidents were quite short and firefighters normally wore their breathing apparatus for 30-40 minutes at a time inside fires. The cameras can run for about eight hours before needing to be recharged.

The trial will start within weeks for an undetermined period of time.

The NSW government is gearing up to equip its law enforcement officers with wearable video cameras, with a tender for suppliers about to close.

M-View chief Andre Obradovic said the company was “actively interested in working with NSW Police”.

In the US, President Barack Obama has backed the use of such devices following the Ferguson riots.

Mr Obradovic said the technology had a wide variety of applications and could be used in mining, transportation and healthcare.

IT WIRE January 2015 – m-View Trials Live Video Streaming Body-Worn Cams

Aussie company m-View has secured distribution deal for the US ‘Fire Cam’ ruggedised wearable camera with trials for live video streaming and recording to police and emergency services

m-View is an Australian mobile video streaming company which has ‘signed an exclusive distribution agreement with US developer of ruggedised wearable cameras, Fire Cam, in a deal expected to fuel adoption of live video streaming and recording for front-line police and emergency services officers in Australia.’

Founded by the aptly named navy servicemen and fire fighter, Rob Schield, Fire Cam is a US-based supplier of ruggedised and fire-resistant worn cameras now being rapidly deployed by emergency and law enforcement agencies keen to integrate live video streaming for more responsive operations, evidence gathering and training of personnel.

The technology has only gained in appeal following the recent ‘controversial events’ in the US featuring police and fatalities, with m-View noting President Obama’s declaration that ‘more public funds should be allocated to expedite its deployment.’

m-View has been around for a decade, with the company saying it ‘quickly gained a reputation for developing intelligent software supporting the reliable transmission of live video across mobile networks, with a range of supporting solutions around the presentation of video data to enhance command and control and logistics operations.’

Its customers over the years include ‘Australian emergency services, including the Queensland, NSW, Victorian and West Australian fire services, as well as several state law enforcement agencies’.

m-View’s streaming software will ‘form a central component of Fire Cam’s recently announced OnCall Live Video System.’

The cloud-managed service or licensed server lets users ‘stream live video, audio and GPS location data to a command post, dispatcher, or another team member enabling real-time situational awareness.’

As part of the deal, m-View has also delivered ‘a secure chain of custody solution that meets the stringent requirements of law enforcement agencies.’

The company is now the ‘exclusive A/NZ distributor of both Fire Cam’s Fire Cam ruggedised and heat-resistant cameras – targeted at emergency services as well as industrial market segments – and the Police Cam cameras aimed at law enforcement.’

In NSW, Fire and Rescue ‘will soon commence trials of m-View’s video streaming solution and body-worn Fire Cam cameras in a bid to improve the responsiveness of field officers and command managers battling fires in the state.’

Graham Tait, NSW Fire and Rescue’s operational communications systems officer notes his organisation has been an m-View customer ‘for several years to gain better awareness of emergency situations – capabilities enhanced by the improved sophistication of mobile devices and applications’.

“We are looking to trial the use of body-worn cameras to further enhance this capability, and to provide our incident managers with live point of video directly from the firefighters,” Tait said.

“The views available from both inside and outside an incident scene help to provide enhanced intelligence from the emergency event, and can assist in resolving the incident faster and more efficiently.”

Wilson Security is also set to begin trials of the solution soon, in the hope of improving security outcomes for its clients as well as ensuing better safety for security officers.’

John McMellan, CEO of Wilson Security Asia Pacific said: “The ability of Wilson’s on-site security officers to conduct live video streaming of events occurring within and around our clients’ premises allows us to deliver better levels of responsiveness while giving us rich video data to inform ongoing strategic planning. “We look forward to working with m-View in harnessing this powerful new technology.”

CSG MD, Julie-Ann Kerin said: “We are interested in exploring the real-time video streaming technology with our field service technicians, so that customers can gain rapid assistance from our experts.

“As CSG has a number of customers in regional Australia, we are hopeful that the technology could also support our customers by increasing their access to some of our most highly skilled technical specialists,” Kerin added.

Matt Cameron, Global Partnership Manager and CTO at m-View said ‘the partnership with Fire Cam brings together two companies with extensive expertise to deliver the next generation of wearable wireless cameras that stream live video.’

“There are many examples of wearable cameras that record to SD card, but with our live streaming solution we are changing the game by bringing a proven live capability – in a secure cloud or private managed service system – to a whole range of customers which have been crying out for such a solution,” Cameron explained.

At one end of the system is the Wi-Fi Pro camera, which attaches to any shirt, vest or coat. Capable of recording in high-definition 1080p, the camera sees everything with its 150-degree wide angle lens.

The camera features both a powerful LED light and an infrared light for optimal night-time stealth.

m-View CEO, Andre Obradovic said: “We have built the software and the application that enable the wearable cameras to stream high quality video live. Our applications intelligently look at the network quality and ensure video streams are delivered with low latency and reliability, providing optimal situational awareness for front-line law enforcers and emergency responders.

“We also provide a flexible environment where the video is recorded in standard formats and we work with the customer to respond to their needs.”

He added that m-View is planning a global release of new hardware and streaming solutions for January next year, while flagging the announcement of several new innovations to further empower officers in the field.

Australian wearable video streaming solutions distributor m-View is setting its sights on the New Zealand market, with plans to penetrate government and emergency services.

m-View has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with US developer of ruggedised wearable cameras, Fire Cam, in a deal expected to fuel adoption of live video streaming and recording for front-line police and emergency services officers in Australia. The company is hoping the same will happen in New Zealand.

Since its inception 10 years ago, m-View quickly gained a reputation for developing intelligent software supporting the reliable transmission of live video across mobile networks, with a range of supporting solutions around the presentation of video data to enhance command and control and logistics operations.

m-View will become the exclusive A/NZ distributor of both Fire Cam’s Fire Cam ruggedised and heat-resistant cameras – targeted at emergency services as well as industrial market segments – and the Police Cam cameras aimed at law enforcement.

Andre Obradovic, m-View CEO, says the company is hoping to establish itself in the New Zealand market and build a partner network.

“We want to focus on the software and have partners who can sell the capability to customers,” he says.

“We’re looking for New Zealand resellers,” he says. “We’re really busy in Australia and Singapore, and we want to get something going in New Zealand as quickly as we can.”

Aimed at government, emergency services and even wildlife and fisheries, Obradovic says there is certainly space in the New Zealand market for this kind of software.

“There is nothing in the market right now that does live streaming in this kind of rugged form,” he says.

“Ideally we’d like to help all the emergency services in New Zealand with a capability of streaming live video. This type of capability should be across all government and emergency services as it provides an open collaborative platform during times of emergency.”

Obradovic says m-View is keen to talk to ICT and SAAS providers in New Zealand to distribute the software, with skills in software sales and those who have good relationships with government departments.

m-View has long standing relationships with customers within Australian emergency services, including the Queensland, NSW, Victorian and West Australian fire services, as well as several state law enforcement agencies.

m-View CEO, Andre Obradovic, said it was looking to expand it channel relationships in the market, particularly with partners that service local councils and municipalities, which he touted as a big growth area.

“We’re trying to find IT partners that don’t just sell hardware, but would also be interested in selling our service,” Obradovic said. “Our core skill is building the software and making sure it works with the hardware. We want partners to be our feet on the street with customers. They’ll make a good margin on hardware but also great margins on the software sales and cloud-based storage.”
