Earlier this week, Motorola Solutions announced the launch of its “compact and lightweight” Si200 body-worn camera.

The Si200 integrates with CommandCentral Vault, the company’s software solution for digital evidence management that enables agencies to manage content from its capture in the field through to sharing it with criminal justice systems.

Motorola Solutions describes the Si200 as being compact and lightweight. Once the captured footage is uploaded to CommandCentral Vault, the latter and digital evidence technologies work to simplify the process of tagging video, automating redaction, correlating video with incident information in police records and maintaining chain of custody when managing evidence.

The company claims that the complete digital evidence ecosystem enables agencies to securely manage files, connect public safety workflows and analyse digital evidence within one integrated platform. Motorola Solutions’ digital evidence management platform can take in and manage digital evidence from different providers.

The Si200 is now available in North America. A Motorola Solutions spokesperson said that they will inform Critical Communications Today “as soon as it will be launched in other regions”.

“Many companies offer elements of digital evidence technology, but without integration across the workflow, these point solutions can create more work for law enforcement agencies that already have limited resources,” said Dan Twohig, Motorola Solutions vice president, Software Enterprise sales. “We’ve created a unified portfolio that centralises digital evidence, records and other multimedia content in one secure location.”
