Getac, a manufacturer of rugged computers has built a new law enforcement management solution on the Microsoft Azure Government cloud platform. The Veretos Mobile Video System (MVS) is an evidence management solution designed to handle digital assets obtained from in-car video solutions, interview rooms, and other digital devices.
The evidence management tool will work with the rest of the MVS kit which includes night vision cameras, back seat cameras, wireless microphones and video software. Getac is offering the kit as a comprehensive camera and recording solution for law enforcement.
Data collected by the system is permanent and many not be overwritten. Veretos Cloud complies with CJIS guidelines and uses digital signatures for integrity validation that meet American Bar Association (ABA) digital signature guidelines as recommended by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
The system is also device agnostic and will work with any existing body or in-car cameras already in operation by a police department or department of corrections.
The partnership with Microsoft represents a new effort by Microsoft to capture part of the public safety market. With the Microsoft Cloud, law enforcement can start using the service without having to first set up a server room designed to manage the large amounts of storage and data that video takes up. Veretos will work off the shelf with a government cloud subscription.
