SEATTLE, April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VIEVU the industry leader in body worn video (BWV) for law enforcement, security, and emergency responders, today announced a partnership with Net Transcripts that will integrate transcription and translation service into VERIPATROL, its highly secure video evidence management software, to provide rapid and cost effective transcription from video evidence collected in the field for later use in the courtroom.
Agencies continue to deploy police-worn BWV cameras as studies continue to show its benefits, including a recent study of the Rialto PD in CA illustrating an 88% decline in complaints filed against officers, and a 60% decline in use-of-force. VIEVU cameras are used by more than 3,100 law enforcement agencies including Oakland PD, Houston PD, Dallas PD Atlanta PD, and Phoenix PD.
"We have enhanced the process of body worn video evidence collected in the field, offering an investigative tool of efficiency and accuracy that is courtroom ready. By integrating Net Transcripts into VERIPATROL, officers can quickly upload encrypted crime scene footage or interviews. Then through our software users can securely request transcription from files stored in the database," said VIEVU President Steve Lovell.
Additional benefits include:
- Chain of custody tracking for single and multi-speaker transcription
- No upfront costs or commitments with an online management center
- Expedite turnaround, email notifications and live customer support
The recently released VIEVU LE3, is a highly secure HD video camera, designed for law enforcement and was built not only to capture the best forensic video evidence possible but also to make operation simple with its large slide on/off switch for easy activation in stressful situations.
VERIPATROL, its accompanying software, installs in standalone, network, mobile or cloud-based environments; and can also be securely integrated through an advanced SDK into existing video systems or other video management platforms (i.e. dash cams, interview rooms or other third party software, et al).
VERIPATROL exceeds current evidence standards and prevents tampering, editing or deleting video using a FIPS 140-2 compliant file authenticity process. It also prevents unauthorized access if the camera is lost or stolen.
