Former Chicago police officer Joe Brady sat down as a member of the Motorola Solutions Enterprise mobile video enablement team to talk about something unique to Motorola Solutions: connecting voice and video systems. Brady went in-depth on the body camera, VB400, and its ability to connect not just to the VMEX (Video Manager software)  but to the rest of the Motorola Solutions ecosystem. With the use of mobile video, Motorola Solutions can connect public safety officers with enterprise customers using the robust safety and security ecosystem.

Brady reviewed the advantages of using the VB400 with VMEX, including the ability to turn on multiple cameras at once. With peer-assisted recording all cameras within 30 meters (100 feet) of the starting camera will turn on to record. A feature that is exclusive to the Motorola Solutions ecosystem is the emergency button that connects a corresponding radio to the VB400 turning on the camera with the press of a button. A huge differentiator of the VB400 is its ability to stream to Avigilon and other ONVIF-compliant VMS using Wifi. Motorola Solutions has been able to tie body camera video with fixed security systems erasing blind spots and offering different points of view. In the event that it is necessary for corporate or judicial use, the VB400 can also sync with in-car video. Because the VB400 uses mp4, the standard video format, the footage can easily be moved onto another platform in the ecosystem such as ACC to use some of the features such as license plate recognition and appearance search.  

Brady also demonstrated one of the convenient features of the VB400/VMEX connection, Email and SMS alerts with live video links. When the camera was started he received both an email and text message with a link to the live-streamed video coming from his body-worn camera. Similarly when the camera is started a Curve notification is sent out to all of the set-up devices giving them a message similar to “Joe Brady’s body-worn camera has been activated”. 

The last half an hour of the discussion from Joe Brady was dedicated to Q&A where he fielded questions about the usage, current issues, and connectivity help. The overall message was on the importance of preparation for the camera system, setting up the proper databases, having high-speed Wifi, and opening all of the ports. Brady also quickly touched on the mounting options available with the VB400, stating that the easiest and most effective options are the Klickfast products with a variety of styles there should be a good mount for every use.
