Edesix, a provider of of body worn cameras (BWC), will be showcasing its new camera streaming gateway software, called ONStream, at ISC West 2018. ONStream integrates Edesix’s wearable cameras with existing video management systems (VMS) traditionally used for viewing footage from fixed IP cameras.
This new software enables ONVIF compliant video management systems to be compatible with body worn cameras. Cameras integrate seamlessly with VideoManager and leading CCTV video management systems, meaning captured footage can be instantly shared and viewed by security staff.

Unifying security and monitoring system
“Body Worn Cameras have been proven to help improve the safety of those in public facing roles, whilst producing compelling legal evidence when needed,” explains Richie McBride, managing director of Edesix.
“One of the most important recent innovations in the body worn camera market has been the ability to integrate the cameras with existing video management systems, enabling organisations to unify a site’s security and monitoring system, and create mobile and first-person viewpoints and add contextual detail to footage."
“Fixed security cameras connected to a video management system are a powerful tool for monitoring and securing many different environments, from retail floors to distribution centres. By integrating wearable cameras, it gives security teams the ability to view unparalleled detail of incidents as they unfold. Our software furthers the potential of VMS, protects valued staff, and captures concrete and secure footage for future review."
Studies examining the use of BWCs show they make a real difference in protecting frontline staff and the public
“It enables immediate response by control rooms and later review by supervisors. It also means live streams can be recorded as evidence, which can then be securely shared with third parties, including the police. The service is fully encrypted with audit trails to protect the evidential quality of footage stored.”
Studies examining the use of BWCs show they make a real difference in protecting frontline staff and the public. Not only do they deter aggression and in many cases eliminate the need to activate a panic alarm or radio during an incident, but they also help staff feel valued, safe and more protected.
