‘Top 10’ Camera System Requirements Seon’s Justin Malcolm isn’t a late-night talk host, but he does have his own list of


requirements for purchasing a future-forward camera system.


• A high definition, hybrid recorder that records both existing standard and new high- definition cameras of up to 1080p in resolution.


• Ensure the vendor’s approach to viewing software is backward compatible, so that a future recorder upgrade doesn’t require new software to view and manage the video.


• Wireless downloading and live video streaming capability, with dual-video streams and one low resolution for quick review, plus live view and one high-resolution for evidence download.


• Ample storage capacity of at least one terabyte. • Low total cost of ownership (the vendor can prove its track record for longevity, low repair rate and reliability).


• It is compatible with intuitive-viewing software and web-based video evidence management solutions.


• Must use proprietary file formats, to ensure evidence chain of custody and prevent tampering.


• Archiving software must include a privacy blurring feature, to protect student and driver privacy. • Must include out-of-the-box integration with GPS and other vehicle data, plus signals that are synchronized with video and audio footage.


• Ensures a future-forward approach—six or more HD video channels at up to 1080p recording.


to replace two or more cameras. Other issues to be aware of con- cern storage requirements for much larger files, bandwidth required to move these bigger files, and time-saving techniques that need to be available when preparing video to be used as evidence. But, 360 cameras are prone to distortion and lost details when certain dewarping technologies are used. In fact, 360-degree cameras can


deliver greater detail than even 12 months ago, he noted. “People are familiar with the fish bowl effect. When you have a very specific incident and you want to really see what is going on between the seats, you don’t want distortion,” Scott said. “We have that solution, where you can zoom in on a full frame on the camera and then pan across it to get a very high-resolution image of a small space.”
