Homeland Security, Defence and Police sectors.

Homeland Security – Example: Monitoring of public gatherings and sporting events in areas such as parks and football grounds where flexibility and crowd control are of vital importance and often fast moving.

A voice message can convey less information and take longer to convey the situation than a moving picture. With Vemotion, CCTV cameras can be rapidly deployed to key locations, offering coverage that would not otherwise be possible and, as situations change, or targets move, so too can Vemotion maintaining coverage and relaying accurate and timely information. This allows key command personnel to decide on additional resource requirements or an appropriate response to rapidly changing situations.

Vemotion can be located within a vehicle to stream video back to a central control room, giving a live view of what is happening. Operators on the same Vemotion system can also send back streamed video to the control room from their body-worn solutions and viewing can be switched to allow continuous coverage of a target – even if it becomes mobile.

Deployable units can be remotely operated with full Pan, Tilt and Zoom (PTZ) control allowing much improved safety for field operatives.

Example Scenario 1

A covert operational team take over a Safe House in an urban environment and need to deploy both a protective perimeter video screen and direct video observation of selective targets. Deploying a VB-40 (PC platform) allows up to 16 Analogue and/or IP cameras to be easily deployed from an individual location just using the domestic electricity supply

Example Scenario 2

A co-ordinated surveillance operation using man-borne, vehicle and direct feed CCTV needs to allow continual coverage of several targets across a variable geographical area. Equipped with vehicle mounted VB-30 units, man-borne and pre-placed static VB-20 units and linking in to direct feed CCTV through VB-40 units, the team can maintain coverage no matter where and how the targets move.

Example Scenario 3

Covert coverage is needed on an unobtrusive platform both for target acquisition and viewing. Utilising the VB-10 Android smartphone platform, covert teams can get up close and personal, sharing their live video output with other team members and both Central and Operational Control Centres simultaneously.
 

Defence

What do you want from a field deployable live video system?

Rapid deployment, easy and intuitive operation, alarm triggered, immediate visibility of approaching threats, robust and lightweight package, cost effective, uses existing communications bearers, record and snapshot capability.

OK, we can do that with both our VB-20 (body-worn) and VB-30(vehicle-mounted) products.
Vemotion’s capability can be deployed across all three tactical environments (land, sea and air) to offer live video surveillance for battlefield monitoring.

Vemotion’s encoders can deliver a live video (780 x 144-pixel resolution) picture over tactical radio or satellite communication capabilities that offers upwards from a minimum of 5 kilobits per second (kbps) at 1 frame per second (fps) up to 300 kbps at 25 fps. Higher resolutions and higher frame rates can be supported dependent on the available bandwidth and platform processing power.

Example Scenario 1

A Forward Operating Base with a ring of up to 8 video cameras on likely approach routes or perimeter blind spots covered by a single VB-30.

Example Scenario 2

A Forward Observation Point with a single video camera and VB-20 linked to remote ground sensor, break beam, pressure pad or contact breaker on a pathway or gate to give early warning of unexpected movement.

Example Scenario 3

A coastal maritime patrol boat shows a live video to an onshore or shipborne command centre of the contents, crew and passengers on a suspicious boat, receiving direct authorisation for response activities.
 

Police Force

The strength of the Vemotion solution lies in the collaborative power inherent in the technology. This power to share live streams wirelessly has seen Vemotion become the first choice for police forces, first responders and those required to work within the inner cordon in Britain and overseas. Police bodyworn cameras using Vemotion compression technology are at the forefront of both overt and covert surveillance operations.
