Atlanta, Georgia, September 14, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Intrensic and GoPro Join Forces Bringing the Most Advanced Body Worn Camera Technology and Storage Capabilities To Law Enforcement
Intrensic, LLC is proud to announce a distribution partnership with GoPro®, Inc. (GPRO) to bring the world’s most advanced body worn cameras to law enforcement. Intrensic™ provides a robust, secure storage platform, working for both on-site and cloud based storage. Intrensic CEO, Kevin Mullins stated, “There has been much anticipation as to when GoPro would be market directly to law enforcement. There is no question that GoPro offers the most dynamic, durable, and wearable video technology in the world. We are very excited to be working with GoPro and offering our high-end, secure video storage options. A GoPro transition into the law enforcement market is perfect and comes at a time when need and demand are very high.”
GoPro is recognized as the leader in extreme action video photography and many police officers, unsatisfied with current video capture options, have purchased GoPro technology on their own for use in the field. GoPro cameras offer the highest quality video image capture on the market. Intrensic® has partnered directly with GoPro to provide a secure cloud-based storage solution with their Evidence on Cloud™ storage capabilities as well as local storage options.
Intrensic will offer both the Hero 4 Silver and Hero 4 Session cameras, depending on the specific needs of the department. Intrensic and GoPro will offer over 25 mounting options for the cameras, making the technology the most wearable and dynamic on the market. The Hero 4 Silver and Hero 4 Session camera were chosen for law enforcement for their ability to highlight tag certain video files, auto low-light capabilities, and the Super View capture allowing the most immersive wide-angle field of view. Drop test and Ingress Protection ratings far exceed other body worn technologies in current operation.
Kevin Mullins said, “The mounting ability and functionality options of GoPro are tremendous. Mounting options are so versatile with GoPro, a department’s body cameras and dash cameras do not have to be independent of each other. This is especially important for agencies with tight budget constraints.” With Intrensic and GoPro, a department can have world class video capture and storage at a fraction of the prior costs. Many of the current body cameras on the market offer an approximate 70° degree field of view. GoPro is the only body worn camera on the market that will allow officers to capture full super-wide 170° video images. This is especially important in law enforcement as capturing the entire field of view is critical in accurately documenting police encounters.
Since the unfortunate events surrounding the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri one year ago, both the public and law enforcement have embraced the need for body worn cameras by police officers. A study in Rialto, CA showed a decrease in use of force incidents by 94% over three years, once body worn cameras were in use by the police department. An even more telling number is a reduction in citizen’s complaints over two years from 51 complaints in 2009 to only 3 complaints in 2011. The vast majority of law enforcement agencies agree that body worn cameras will reduce unwarranted citizen’s complaints and mitigate liability to the departments.
With the tremendous demand of body worn cameras in law enforcement, storage on both the camera and servers can become huge hurdles. The Intrensic and GoPro solution offer 64GB of on-board storage, which is more than twice the majority of most other technologies in this market. Kevin Mullins stated, “Intrensic will offer the best body worn video technology with GoPro, and a solid storage solution catered for law enforcement, both at a cost agencies can afford. We have catered our solution so that there are no surprises with the hardware or cost of storage.”
