Wearable security specialist introduces new VideoTag series
Edesix, a market leader in the provision of body worn camera solutions, has just launched its new VideoTag Series. The VT-100 and VT-50, are its smallest, lightest and most discreet incident recorders to date and are proven to deter aggression, protect staff and provide secure evidential-quality footage on demand.
Designed for less frequent use than Edesix’s VideoBadge body worn cameras, both the VideoTag VT-100 and VT-50 are lightweight, unobtrusive, cost-effective and easy to use. Both require no extra training, stream live footage, and have a standby battery-life of up to three months meaning users don’t need to worry about charging the device frequently. The VT Series also provides complementary audio and video capture of incidents when utilised as part of a larger body worn camera and CCTV security function.
The VT-50 has been designed mainly for indoor use, and is aimed at sectors such as airlines, indoor retail or education. The VT-100 is a more robust, weatherproof camera and has room for an ID badge. It is ideal for lone workers, debt collectors, supermarket workers and areas of the police. The VT-50 can record up to one hour of footage, while the VT-100 records up to 2 hours.
Managing Director Richie McBride said: “The VideoTag Series provides another option in our armoury of body worn cameras, they are light-weight and completely unobtrusive, making them perfect for any uniform, and ideal for those looking to record on a less regular basis or to equip all staff with recording devices.
“The VideoTag will complement your current security function, providing additional body-worn protection to staff throughout any organisation. The VideoTag Series allows staff in public-facing roles, who are not part of the security team, to create a safer working environment for themselves and their colleagues.
“Body worn cameras are now making a real difference to the protection of staff, and the general public, across an ever-growing list of sectors, including security, retail, local authorities, and emergency services to name but a few.”
