Press Release: Lightweight and discreet

wearable video and audio surveillance – the

Tactical CCTV Vest from GIT

December 2013 Security personnel are faced with a host of potential incidents and being able to assess the liability of parties involved after the fact is crucial. Graphic Image Technologies (GIT) has developed the ideal solution for this challenge – the Tactical CCTV vest with live GSM streaming capability, a wearable solution that delivers a live video and audio feed as well as GPS information from security personnel in the field to the control room. “Typically when security incidents occur, management teams need to rely on eye witness accounts as well as the guard’s version of events. This can lead to a ‘he said, she said’ scenario, which makes taking the decisive action, legal or otherwise, a challenging task. The Tactical CCTV Vest provides a comprehensive view of events as they happen, moving CCTV in the field from a post-event analysis tool to a real-time proactive solution,” says Mark Chertkow, Managing Director at GIT. Using SerVision CVG-M video gateway technology, the Tactical CCTV Vest provides real-time, low bandwidth live streaming, enabling the control room to have eyes and ears on the ground at all times for fast response and an accurate picture of events. Constructed of lightweight mesh, the vest features a starlight camera for clear pictures night and day, a microphone, GPS antenna for positional tracking, GSM antenna for reception and live video feed to control rooms. It also features a 10- or 20-hour rechargeable battery pack and supports remote viewing on iOS and Android smart devices. All of these technologies are discreetly incorporated into the vest, which weighs around two kilograms with a 10-hour battery. “There has always been a need for wearable CCTV in the security space, but technology and cost constraints have hampered this development. Solutions were often bulky and uncomfortable, without the benefit of live streaming. The Tactical CCTV Vest is lightweight, comfortable and discreet, blending in with security personnel uniforms, as well as easy to use and rugged enough to withstand everyday wear and tear,” says Martin Cooper, Account Executive at GIT and designer and creator of the Tactical CCTV Vest. For armed response units and security personnel in the field, the Tactical CCTV Vest provides continuous recording and live streaming of events, with two-way speech capabilities for ‘always-on’ communications. The vests provide full remote surveillance capability, the ability to trigger alarms with a panic button in the event of an incident for rapid and appropriate response, and full tracking capability for accurate location identification. Using SerVision’s innovative low bandwidth streaming capability, anyone with permission can log onto the SerVision platform to view events from computers, tablets and Smartphones, wherever they are in the world, and can even remotely direct the guard or communicate through the guard should this be necessary. “With all of the components hidden in a vest that bears a strong resemblance to the usual attire of security guards, the Tactical CCTV Vest is ideal for everyday use as well as covert operations. Should an attack take place against security personnel wearing the vest, the probability of perpetrators being caught is significantly higher thanks to live video and audio surveillance,” says Chertkow. “In addition, the vest allows security organisations to spend less time assessing wrongful accusations, and increases the accuracy of security incident reports. Staff can be more efficient and productive, with the assurance that they have proof to back up their version of events. The live streaming component also adds a proactive element to guarding solutions, as events can be identified and quickly responded to with backup should this be necessary,” he concludes. The Tactical CCTV Vest is now available exclusively from GIT. About Graphic Image Technologies Graphic Image Technology (GIT) was formed in 1991 and specialises in remote CCTV and control room technologies as well as broadcast technologies including video playout, compression and transmission.  The company targets organisations that require CCTV technology and broadcasting companies with its solutions, delivering technology that has been specifically chosen due to its quality and best of breed status.
