DVTEL, INC., IP video surveillance technology innovator, announced the availability of TruWitnessTM, an industry-first mobile video application that turns mobile smartphones into full- featured IP video surveillance cameras that stream video into DVTEL’s Latitude Video Management System.
TruWitness is a revolutionary application that transforms cell phones into real-time networked video surveillance cameras. Users are able to 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 than ever before. It 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.
“TruWitness is the first mobile application of its kind in the surveillance market,” said Yoav Stern, President and CEO, DVTEL. “It allows responders to leverage smart devices to provide real-time visual reports of an incident, and stream the video and data to a central command centre for on-the-spot decision making, dispatching and resolution in a timely manner. TruWitness enhances situational awareness by putting a live camera on the scene to provide video evidence of a situation as it occurs, helping response teams decide what is needed, as the event evolves.”
TruWitness is currently available to existing and new Latitude 6.2users free of charge. It is supported on Android- based smart phones running on OS version 2.2 and above.
“DVTEL is committed to delivering solutions that enable users to have the flexibility necessary to enhance safety and quickly solve investigations, thus improving the efficiency of normal operations and procedures,” Stern added. “DVTEL’s advanced technologies, such as TruWitness, allow our partners and end customers to practically and seamlessly reach beyond traditional expectations to realise new levels of operational efficiencies and cost effective security applications for people and assets.”
