IACP Conference, 2012: Kris Pearson, Director of Sales, VIEVU, Inc
Kris Pearson describes VIEVU as the world leader in body-worn video technology, with 23,000 customers worldwide. One of the reasons that police officers are now wearing surveillance devices, he asserts, is to capture their interaction with the public through audio and video so that they can prove what they’ve been doing when they’re out of range of the in-vehicle video, which only captures what’s in front of the car. Another reason for body-worn cameras is to establish a secure evidentiary chain, which the VIEVU devices achieve, since officers cannot alter what has been recorded by the camera. Pearson discusses the features and benefits of the company’s LE 2 HD product, which he says is rugged and very easy to use, and also the company’s LE 4, which he says provides the next step in video quality and is expected to get a great reception by law enforcement and public safety agencies in the coming year.
