i-PRO releases 4K panoramic front camera for police vehicles
June 3, 2022 By Blue Line Staff
May 2022, Rolling Meadows, IL – i-PRO Americas Inc. has announced the launch of its new 4K Panoramic Front Camera for police vehicles, the WV-VCF41P. A component of i-PRO’s powerful ICV4000 in-car video (ICV) system, the new camera is designed for law enforcement agencies seeking wide-angle coverage and high-resolution capture of video evidence from the vehicle.
Unlike traditional forward-facing cameras, the WV-VCF41P is engineered to provide a full 150-degree field of view. The innovative lens is designed to minimize distortion and edge warping, resulting in the widest angle offered. Behind the lens, the camera’s 4K sensor is i-PRO’s highest resolution sensor for mobile video evidence applications. This advanced lens and sensor combination is said to record events as they unfold across the entire scene in front of the vehicle. With support for detailed forensic zooming into areas of interest without image blurring, the WV-VCF41P is able to present clear evidence.
The compact design of the WV-VCF41P fits behind the rearview mirror so it does not obstruct the driver’s view. Its 32:9 aspect ratio image reduces storage requirements by cropping away unnecessary areas, such as the sky or a vehicle’s hood, allowing agencies to concentrate on the relevant parts of the evidence. A Power over Ethernet connection allows for easy installation, and a built-in G-force sensor is designed to provide automatic activation upon impact which reduces the cost and complexity of installing a separate sensor.
The ICV4000 and WV-VCF41P support uploading video evidence into the CloUDE digital evidence management system using either Wi-Fi, a mobile router or a mobile data terminal with cellular connection. Powered by Genetec Clearance, CloUDE allows officers and investigators to store, manage, review and share evidence from their in-vehicle or body-worn cameras efficiently and easily from within a single application. Authorized individuals can share cases and digital video evidence with cooperating agencies, prosecutors, attorneys, or members of the media. Secure access and chain of custody are controlled through straightforward policies managed in the application. Additionally, advanced logging creates an audit trail of all user actions, available for management review at any time.
