Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions announced their new in-car video (ICV4000) system featuring a powerful new video processing unit (VPU4000). With high-speed processing, wireless networking, new security features, improved image quality, and easier deployment, the Panasonic i-PRO ICV4000 system takes in-car video technology into the future.
“Panasonic i-PRO in-car video systems for law enforcement and professional security applications have a well-deserved reputation for exceptional reliability and video quality,” said David O’Connor, Director, Public Safety Division, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America. “Building from that legacy and our extensive experience in professional video recording technology, the ICV4000 is a next-generation in-car video evidence capture solution with higher performance, improved security, and simplified installation.”
The new ICV4000 employs the MPEG-4 recording format, eliminating the need for proprietary media devices and making it easier to share video and audio content with other applications. By eliminating the conversion processes and workflows associated with proprietary video formats, the ICV4000 provides a more streamlined approach to video reviewing and sharing.
As with all evidence-capture technology, securing the integrity of video and audio data is a top priority. The ICV4000 uses new and improved security features such as SSD drive lock and AES/256 data encryption at rest, which ensure that evidence data is completely secure and cannot be accessed or forcibly removed by unauthorized parties.
Designed to mount out of the officer’s line of sight, the compact AS-1 main camera captures an 86°, wide angle view of the vehicle’s front in 1080p, high-definition video. It features extreme low-light performance down to .02 lux. A single Ethernet cable carries power, signal, and control, and a built-in G-Force sensor reduces installation costs.
The AS-1 is fully compatible with the Arbitrator 360®™ HD camera, which offers a wide viewing angle and is equipped with a 360x digital zoom and ultra-low-light viewing, to capture clear evidence from a distance, even at night. Arbitrator 360° HD makes recording seamless, with 16 automatic and manual triggers to ensure users capture clear evidence—from double-tapping a wireless mic, to opening a back door, to turning on the light bar. In addition, the system provides the ability to record evidence simultaneously from up to five different cameras and three audio inputs, with pre-recording for up to 90 seconds. Built to survive the demands of law enforcement use, the Arbitrator 360 HD system is MIL-STD- 810G-tested for resistance to shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, moisture, and other harsh conditions.
With several options for front-end cameras, the ICV4000 offers full HD recording along with a wider field of view and multiple optical/digital zoom levels. This provides users with superior video evidence quality and ensures that every detail is clearly captured, even under challenging conditions.
The ICV4000 incorporates embedded Bluetooth (BLE) and two wireless LAN modules to support seamless integration with Panasonic i-PRO’s BWC4000. Additionally, the ICV4000 features a consolidated system design that combines multiple system features, which results in reduced vehicle installation time and easier deployment and usability.
