Axis Communications has announced a major update to its wearable solution with the launch of AXIS Body Worn Live to deliver live data streaming in the form of video, audio, and metadata from Axis body worn cameras.
AXIS Body Worn Live supports informed decision making by operators, enhances intelligence gathering for incident response teams (IRTs) and also provides an added sense of safety for camera wearers.
Wearers can activate the data stream simultaneously with recording. The operator can be notified in their management system to view GPS location data and follow along in real-time in the cloud-based application.
The wearer can be notified when the operator begins monitoring. Permissions can be assigned based on roles to safeguard data integrity and transmission is protected by end-to-end encryption.
AXIS Body Worn Live works independently of the choice of video or evidence management system. The data stream can be viewed on computers, or mobile devices, and can be streamed to one or more viewers.
Data is accessible for 24 hours and buffering ensures that no data is lost even if transmission temporarily drops out, while cameras connect via pre-configured WIFI. AXIS Body Worn Live also runs on the Microsoft Azure platform, it supports GDPR compliance and is always updated with the latest software releases and patches.
Axis body worn cameras offer a robust and lightweight security solution which has been designed for use by law enforcement and private security teams.
These cameras represent the next generation of physical security, providing flexible surveillance on-the-move, often in challenging situations, and meeting Axis’ usual high standards when it comes to quality, ease of use, design and usability.
Open system architecture also facilitates simple integration with a broad range of third-party systems, which promotes collaboration with Axis’ partners.
Ian James, UK Sales Engineering and Training Manager, Axis Communications, commented, “The first-person perspective gained from a body worn camera can complement a fixed camera solution, gathering real-time intelligence and capturing evidence of a situation at the point at which it occurs.
“Integration with an operator’s VMS allows one system to monitor all cameras, both wearable and fixed, and enables the data from both wearable and fixed solutions to be combined, building a highly accurate incident report.”
Licenses for AXIS Body Worn Live will be available for purchase in Q2 2023. The product can be added to existing Axis body worn cameras through firmware upgrade.
