Expands Capabilities in Body-Worn and In-Car Cameras
California-based Vigilant Solutions announced on 4 October it has completed acquisition of Edesix Limited, the United Kingdom’s leading manufacturer of body-worn cameras.
Founded in Edinburgh in 2002, Edesix has a global footprint of customers from the UK and the United States to Abu Dhabi and Australia, in industries ranging from law enforcement and airport security to fire safety, rail safety, university security and healthcare. Its body-worn video system – VideoBadge – employs footage encryption and a wire-free design that make it extremely versatile for various types of users and applications. Similarly, its VideoManager software solutions enable web-based viewing and editing of incidents, and preparation of evidence packages. The software is designed to control and manage cameras, their footage and data from other sources in a highly efficient and secure manner. Additionally, its in-car cameras will seamlessly integrate with Vigilant’s suite of technologies.
Law enforcement agencies no longer need to keep their automatic license plate recognition, facial recognition, ballistics analysis, gun crime and body-worn/in-car camera images siloed in multiple systems. All the images captured can easily be integrated into the Vigilant investigative platform, providing law enforcement with a single platform for securely managing images in one place.
