In May, Edesix, a market leader in the provision of body worn camera solutions, launched VideoTag VT-100, a recording device meant to be worn by retailers, lone workers and other public facing staff.
One of Edesix’s smallest, lightest and most discreet incident recorders, VT-100 is robust and weatherproof, while remaining lightweight, unobtrusive, cost-effective and easy to use.
Incident recorders are proven to deter aggression, protect staff and provide secure evidential-quality footage on demand, states Edesix.
The advantage of VT-100 is that it combines the discreetness of an incident recorder with the longer recording times of a traditional body worn camera.
VT-100 provides four hours of continuous footage, requires no extra training and streams live footage. It has a standby battery life of up to three months, which means users don't need to worry about charging the device often.
The VT-100 also provides complementary audio and video capture of incidents when utilised as part of a larger body worn camera and CCTV security function.
Richie McBride, CEO of Edesix, commented: "The VT-100 will allow staff in public-facing roles, who are not always part of the security team, to create a safer working environment for themselves and their colleagues. It offers a cost-effective, secure and practical approach to wearable security for incident recording and workflow management."
