|TruWitness transforms cell phones into real-time networked video surveillance cameras
DVTEL, INC., IP video surveillance technology innovator, recently announced its industry-first mobile surveillance application, TruWitness, has been honoured as a winner in the Security 2012 Exhibition’s New Product of the Year Awards. The award program recognises the best security product innovations, judging products on their originality, benefit to users and installers, andease of integration with current market technologies. More than 20 products were entered into the competition.
The first application of its kind in the security market, TruWitness transforms cell phones into real-time networked video surveillance cameras. Users can tap into the power of their smart devices to stream, record, analyse, review and export video from any location. Available with DVTEL’s Latitude 6.2 VMS, the product operates over WiFi, 3G/4G and LTE networks, and provides security and operational teams with more mobility and enhanced awareness. TruWitness extends the coverage of surveillance networks to reach blind spots and other areas that traditional cameras cannot reach, and enables the relocation of cameras in real time, as the needs arises.
“We are pleased to be honored with this prestigious award. The industry is always searching for solutions that deliver a high level of situational awareness to allow for quick response and better informed decision-making in crisis situations,” said Yoav Stern, President and CEO, DVTEL. “With TruWitness, we ensure users have access to those capabilities by enabling them to expand their surveillance network on the fly and capture surveillance data in areas that were previously outside of their reach.”
TruWitness, which also won the Security Industry Association 2012 New Product Showcase award for Best Video Storage, Distribution and Management at ISC West in March, is currently available toexisting and new Latitude 6.2 users free of charge. It is supported on Android-based smart phones running on OS version 2.2 and above. TruWitness and DVTEL’s end-to-end product line is marketed by Melbourne-based Pacific Communications, which showcased the application at the ASIAL exhibition in Sydney.
