HD Protech Body Worn Camera Solution

In the early 1990’s dash cameras emerged as a new technology for capturing real-time contact between police officers and the public. Despite early resistance to the dashboard camera by officers the technology led to improvements in officer safety, accountability and reduced agency liability. As a result dash cameras have been widely embraced by law enforcement and have proven their worth in the courts and public relations.

Over the past few years the Body Worn Camera (BWC) has emerged as the new technology to replace dash cameras in smaller budget constrained departments while complementing dash cameras in larger law enforcement agencies.

Innovation in the field of Body Worn Cameras has redefined video capture implementation not just for law enforcement but private security and their operating procedures when BWC is deployed.

There are numerous reasons to use BWC as standard issue equipment. In addition to its normal use in the field many agencies are leveraging BWC in criminal investigations as a means of capturing evidence to decrease frivolous lawsuits. It provides the means to improve efficiency and effectiveness as an extension of police authority especially if force is required.

HD Protech saw the potential benefits of BWC back in 2000 and began to develop solutions for private security, first responders and law enforcement agencies. Our initial entry into the market supported many third party cameras which we integrated in our media management product C3 Partner.

After several years of deployment and use, customer feedback, comments, usage analysis and in-depth analysis of other products in the market space we have developed the next generation of BWC and video media management software addressing the concerns, requirements and needed enhancements to satisfy our customer base.

HD Protech is proud to introduce the CITE M1G2 Body Worn Camera and the C3 Sentinel management solution. Together the CITE M1G2 and C3 Sentinel management system provide a comprehensive answer for your body worn camera needs and media management.

    BWC Data Management – C3 Sentinel

    C3 Sentinel represents a major upgrade and step forward from C3 Partner, our camera media management solution. C3 Sentinel is our most comprehensive Body Worn Camera (BWC) management system to date and is a direct result of customer input and market requirements by both law enforcement and private security agencies. While C3 Sentinel works best with our CITE camera it is not limited and can support any media device that captures and stores media files including attached scanners.

    C3 Sentinel presents an easy to use and logical interface allowing users to focus on the media files important to them and provide the tools needed to optimize workflow. You can organize, categorize, group, view and search files with ease. C3 Sentinel also delivers complete media retention services to improve data storage based on defined polices and provide archival capabilities that are fully logged.

    C3 Sentinel includes many new features that help automate and streamline camera uploads, client software updates and intelligent monitoring of data storage. A new enhanced video pixilation process protects privacy concerns when releasing video to resources outside the agency.
