In-Car and Body-Worn Video System from WatchGuard

WatchGuard’s 4RE HD Panoramic in-car video system and one or more VISTA WiFi body-worn cameras work together seamlessly as a single system, capturing synchronized video of a single incident from multiple vantage points. The Wi-Fi capability in the body cameras and a Wi-Fi access point in the car allow the cameras to become members of a group-recording network with the in-car system. Multi-Peer Recording technology distributes decision-making to in-car and body-worn cameras, giving any officer on the team the power to initiate a group recording in which all cameras in the recording group begin capturing synchronized video evidence. Recordings from the individual cameras are uploaded and automatically linked in evidence management software for viewing and sharing.

Built with law enforcement feedback, Axon Fleet 2 includes redesigned front and back cameras with new features like infrared and zoom.
