Modern bodycams are smaller, lighter and increasingly sophisticated in the type of features they now support including; full HD video quality, infrared, night vision, integration with wearable equipment and even the ability to stream live footage to other devices. A feature which is especially possible when combining a Hytera Bodycam with a Hytera PDC760 Multi-mode Advanced Radio or utilising the new Hytera VM780 Bodycam which has built-in LTE.

Bodycams are typically used by police, fire and ambulance services, but they are also issued to prison staff, private security officers, healthcare workers, railway workers, traffic wardens and parking attendants, any workers who may face abuse and the threat of violence in their jobs.

Studies have shown that bodycams can help to deter verbal abuse and aggression, as people often calm down if they know they are being filmed. As such they provide an additional means of protection for front line staff and lone workers.

Choosing the correct Bodycam for your requirements is essential, but with the full range of Hytera solutions there is a product to meet all needs and budgets.

  • Logging system for evidence retrieval. Classify evidence files and correlate them with a specific case using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) location information
