Stalker unveils in-car video system controllable using a smart device


The world’s most advanced in-car video system is now even better.

Stalker recently introduced its second-generation CopTrax II real-time streaming in-car video system. The new CopTrax II builds on the original CopTrax automatic wireless file upload platform and integrates a powerful on-board computer video processor, allows full system control through any smart device, and records separate redundant video as backup.

CopTrax II moves video processing tasks from the patrol vehicle’s laptop to CopTrax II’s own integrated computer. Doing this has the dual benefit of relieving the patrol vehicle laptop of some of its processing load, while shifting the processor-intensive video tasks into the CopTrax II standardized environment. Both systems are controlled through the vehicle laptop’s touch screen.

Users can now fully control the CopTrax II in-car system with any smart device. The complete CopTrax control screen that is presented on the patrol vehicle laptop is visible on any Android, iPhone, or iPad. The user can start and stop recording, switch cameras, take a photo, find a location, review video – anything that can be done from the in-car laptop can now be done remotely from a smart device.

CopTrax II ensures that no video evidence is lost by automatically activating redundant background recording when the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. Running in the background, it captures up to 120 hours of video on a separate internal drive. When the main CopTrax video system records an event, both the event video and the redundant background video are saved.

In addition, CopTrax II includes a user configurable impact-sensing accelerometer with crash/pursuit settings, 1280x720 HD video recording, embedded WiFi, and 8 separate hardware triggers. A built-in battery backup maintains operation even if the vehicle’s battery is fully discharged. This allows an orderly system shutdown during an outage.

CopTrax II builds on original CopTrax’s ground-breaking live video streaming to any Internet-connected computer and its labor-saving automatic video file upload, even while on patrol. CopTrax II includes all of the functionality of the original, including: 

Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)

GPS synchronized video recording

Automatic recording initiated by user selectable triggers

Advanced video labeling by incident type

Video playback with mapping / tracking

Dual high-resolution video cameras

High-quality audio recording

The CopTrax system embeds geographic positioning data into the video stream. Now, what the officer is seeing, hearing, and where they are seeing it is captured in real-time. Agencies have greater situational awareness, better asset coordination, and more accurate event recreation.

The CopTrax System's Command and Control Center is accessible from any Internet connected computer – at the station, the Chief's office, even a computer located at a residence.

The Command and Control Center and Case Management System include the following features: 

Displays the location of all devices (MDTs and smartphones)

Searches and exports video by meta data

Plays back video with synchronized tracking data

Uses GPS tracking data for event reconstruction

Monitors geo-fenced areas and proximity markers

Automatically emails and texts alerts to officers and/or staff

Attaches documents to cases / incident reports

Generates crime maps

CopTrax is available in the United States through Stalker Radar's network of Regional Sales Managers and outside the U.S. through authorized distributors. For more information, visit the CopTrax web site, CopTrax.net.
