Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corporation of America is reaffirming its position in advanced technology solutions for law enforcement applications at IACP 2020 with the introduction of the BWC4000. This new body-worn camera features a unique 12-hour field-swappable battery, providing law enforcement and security officers with extended camera operation without having to deal with cumbersome charging cables. All they need to do is quickly and easily swap a discharged battery with a charged replacement if they remain in the field for more than 12 hours.
“Panasonic i-PRO is a new highly versatile and agile company structured to establish and implement new innovative technologies and strategies for specific market applications, such as public safety and secure cities, that deliver higher ROI and lower TCO,” said Bill Brennan, President, Panasonic i-PRO. “This represents a significant shift in vision for our organisation as demonstrated by the addition of the next generation i-PRO BWC4000 to our continually expanding portfolio of solutions for longstanding and emerging law enforcement challenges.”
The new i-PRO BWC4000 also features the ability to quickly tag videos with essential metadata using an easy-to-use LCD menu; MP4 file recording; H.264/H.265 video compression to maximise recording capacity; and 1080p, 720p or 360p HD resolution in either the 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio. For use in harsh conditions, the new BWC4000 is built to the demanding MIL-STD 810H military testing standard with an IP67 weather-resistant rating. For added deployment versatility, the new BWC4000 also offers built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and much more.
Part of a comprehensive system solution, the new BWC4000 seamlessly integrates with i-PRO’s Unified Digital Evidence management software. It also works in unison with the Arbitrator in-car video systems and i-PRO’s fixed-surveillance cameras to form a unified evidence management platform that preserves the chain of custody.
