Hytera wins Body-Worn Camera contract from the Police Force in Pakistan
Hytera, the global leading provider of professional communications technologies and solutions, has been awarded a contract to supply body-worn cameras (bodycams) to Pakistani police. Hytera will be equipping the police with Hytera bodycams.
The devices are being deployed to help the police enforce traffic and safety laws, as well as assisting with security and recovery tasks.
“To ensure the bodycams serve the police well in all kinds of working conditions, they must meet various standards,” said Ken Dai, general manager of Hytera’s Pakistan office. “They have to be able to survive extreme conditions including sudden drops, heavy rain and dust storms. In addition, they need to be capable of recording high-quality video even in the dark. We have carried out multiple tests with the police and the results have proved satisfactory.”
The bodycam model used in this project is one of Hytera’s top-of-the-range bodycams. It features a small, slim, lightweight and portable design suitable for use by frontline police officers. It supports 1080P video recording at 30fps and has a long-range night vision capability of up to 10m distance.
The bodycam has an integrated remote speaker microphone to provide video dispatch and real-time video streaming over 3G/4G/Wi-Fi. This means it can also double as a PoC device, so the police can make push-to-talk (PTT) voice calls and initiate an emergency alarm in mission critical situations.
The police officers are also able to take advantage of the Hytera SmartMDM IDS (Integrated Device Station) System and SmartEye System. The SmartMDM IDS provides centralized management of multi-media evidence collected by the bodycams. It supports both centralized or distributed storage of the evidence, making it simple and easy to view, download, edit, and share.
The SmartEye System is an intelligent management platform, which enables the main office to monitor and control the on-site bodycams in real time.
The deployment of Hytera’s comprehensive bodycam solution will help improve traffic conditions in Pakistan and further enhance the safety of both citizens and police officers.
