Genetec has announced the new camera registry module for Genetec Clearance, a digital evidence management system that facilitates collaboration between public safety agencies, corporate security departments, businesses and the public.
Video evidence is an invaluable tool to help investigators review events and solve crimes. However, the process of retrieving recorded evidence from surveillance cameras can be cumbersome and time-consuming, leading to delays in an investigation and increased risk of evidence being missed.
The new camera registry module simplifies the video request process and improves collaboration between businesses and public safety agencies. Organisations can share a registry of the cameras they’ve deployed, including surveillance cameras, body cameras, and on-board recorders from different manufacturers, to allow authorised parties to identify cameras of interest and request video.
The ability for administrators to customise request forms and the required approval workflow ensures protocols are followed when releasing video to a requesting party.
Once a request is approved, encrypted recordings can automatically be sent, while also maintaining the chain of evidence.
Clearance supports a variety of video codecs, so recipients can review recordings from a web browser without having to download and install a separate player.
