Camera registry facilitates video sharing for businesses and public safety agencies

by Brian Sims

Genetec has announced the new camera registry module for Genetec Clearance, a digital evidence management system that facilitates collaboration between public safety agencies, corporate security departments, businesses and members of the public.

Video evidence is an invaluable tool to help investigators review events and solve crimes. However, the process of retrieving recorded evidence from surveillance cameras deployed by cities and private businesses located nearby an incident is cumbersome and time-consuming. This can lead to delays in an investigation and increase the risk of evidence being missed.

The new camera registry module in Genetec Clearance simplifies the video request process and improves collaboration between businesses and public safety agencies. Organisations can share a registry of the cameras they’ve deployed (including surveillance cameras, body cameras and on-board recorders from different manufacturers) to allow authorised end users to rapidly identify cameras of interest and then request video to assist in an investigation.

The ability for administrators to customise request forms and their required approval workflow also ensures protocols are followed when releasing video to a requesting party. Once a request is approved, encrypted recordings can automatically be sent to an authorised investigation, while also maintaining the chain of evidence.

Genetec Clearance supports a variety of video codecs so recipients can easily review recordings from a web browser without having to download and install a separate video player.

“The Genetec Clearance camera registry allows organisations to reduce the time to fulfil access requests and share video evidence between stakeholders operating across different systems, departments and jurisdictions,” explained Erick Ceresato, Genetec’s product manager. “The technology allows organisations to maximise the use of their staffing levels and provides investigators with faster access to evidence to help enhance their response and focus on public safety within their communities.”
