10-8 Video’s Arsenal in-vehicle video system is backed by five generations of unmatched reliability

By Ron La Pedis

Like your lights and siren, in-car video isn’t something you think about. It should be there – and it should work – without fail.

10-8 Video’s embedded systems have always been the most reliable systems on the market, with many departments still using their first generation systems from several years ago. But time and technology don’t stand still, that’s why 10-8 Video presents its new fifth generation system, the Arsenal on-board video system.

The Arsenal 10-8 Video is a component-based system, making it the easiest and most reliable system to use.

Supporting up to four time-synchronized audio and video channels, this system immerses you in the action. A camera can look out the front window to record saves, one pointed at the cage, and there are two more for whatever you think is important – to the sides, above the trunk, or maybe keep an eye on your K-9 partner in the back of an SUV.

Component-based system

The Arsenal 10-8 Video is a component-based system, making it the easiest and most reliable system to use. After easy installation, if any of the four main components fail, they can easily be replaced by the user in just minutes; there is no need to take a vehicle offline or schedule and pay a store for removal and replacement.

In addition to storage with no moving parts that could fail on impact, the system offers Wi-Fi downloading at no additional cost.

Always save

The Arsenal system can be set to always save. Often this data is not necessary, but when it is, it really is.

When an agent activates the system with lights, wireless microphone, manually or with other triggers, the video leading up to the activation is recorded. Administrators can configure the system to include a specific time before the event as a permanent part of the event recording. And if more video is needed, authorized personnel can view and record video events before automated event recording.

In addition to audio and video, the 40 G-force impact safety system features built-in GPS that displays real-time speed, GPS sensor for speed-triggered recording and of Google Maps location when playing when using the 10-8 software package. If the vehicle is involved in an accident, the system is automatically triggered, recording data before and after the accident.

Two cameras

The system comes with two cameras. The front is a Sony StarVis sensor with a maximum resolution of 1080p using a 3MP 4mm crystal lens and the inside uses a Sony sensor with 12 built-in IR emitters. The StarVis sensor on the front provides accurate color during day and night for more usable footage, but automatically switches to black and white when needed for very low-light, albeit very rare, images. An officer-worn 900Mhz wireless microphone kit is included as standard. Technical specifications can be found here.

No compromise

Digital video recorded in a format easily manipulated on a computer is ready for attack. That’s why 10-8 Video saves video in a proprietary format that can’t be manipulated with any commercial video editing software, giving you proof of a positive chain of custody. Although 10-8 software is required, the company does not charge you for licensing or using it.
