Motorola Solutions at BAPCO 2020: Into the future

1/6/2020

Motorola Solutions has announced its presence as a Platinum sponsor at BAPCO 2020 in Coventry. In this article, the company discusses the technology it will be showcasing at the event - on Stand C1 -, as well as its thought-leadership presence during the conference

Motorola Solutions’ future-leading innovations enable public safety organisations to overcome their most complex challenges, streamline their processes, as well as prepare for tomorrow’s requirements. The demos at the BAPCO 2020 Motorola Solutions stand will include body-worn cameras, evidence management systems, video solutions and advanced command center applications and analytics.
 
Cutting-edge technology
 
Motorola Solutions will present its new compact body-worn cameras VT-50 VideoTag and VB-320 VideoBadge, designed for covert operations at safety enterprises, in hospitals or at airports and train stations. We will also present our latest land mobile radio (LMR) and public safety LTE devices, including the MTP6650 TETRA Portable Two-Way Radio, the ST7500 Compact TETRA Radio and the LEX L11 Mission Critical LTE Device.
 
Broadband push-to-talk
 
When emergencies strike, public safety organisations depend on instant and reliable push-to-talk (PTT) communications to coordinate emergency response. With that in mind, Motorola Solutions will demonstrate its cloud-based broadband PTT service WAVE at BAPCO 2020, showing how teams can communicate real-time at the push of a button.
 
The cost-efficient, subscription-based, group communication service instantly connects teams across different devices, networks and locations – no matter if they are using TETRA radio technology, LTE devices, smartphones or a desktop PC.
 
AI-based video security and analytics solutions
 
Public safety organisations are facing increasing volumes of data, which have to be evaluated and turned into decisive action in an instant. Security solutions powered by artificial intelligence (AI) enable them to tackle this challenge, making their response times faster and allowing them to focus on the events that matter most.
 
At BAPCO in Coventry, Motorola Solutions will showcase its latest video security and analytics solutions, including:

- The new Avigilon H5A camera line. This features next-generation video analytics technology, which can detect more objects with greater accuracy, whether stationary or moving, even in crowded situations

- The new high-resolution Avigilon H4 Thermal camera. This combines patented self-learning video analytics technology with heat-sensing capabilities, in order to improve perimeter security in areas with poor visibility, absolute darkness or containing extreme environmental conditions such as weather, dust, debris, smoke or foliage. The H4 thermal camera can detect and classify objects - and notify end-users of potentially critical threats - at longer distances, empowering them with the information they need

- The new Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software introduces a new concept in live video monitoring, in the form of ‘Focus of Attention’. This leverages AI and video analytics technologies to determine what information is important and should be presented to security operators.
 
ACC leverages advanced artificial intelligence and video analytics, including ‘Appearance Search’ technology and ‘Unusual Motion Detection’ technology. The bookmark, event, alarm and thumbnail search options in ACC are designed to improve event response times and help make video actionable.
 
Integrated control room solutions
 
The CommandCentral software suite from Motorola Solutions helps public safety agencies and organisations work smarter and more efficiently. CommandCentral Aware aggregates and integrates video streaming, real-time alerts, advanced data analytics, resource tracking, social media analytics and computer aided dispatch into a single, intuitive interface. It allows operators and analysts in a control room to communicate actionable intelligence to field staff. 
 
The CommandCentral control room solution meanwhile offers a seamless transition for control rooms, as public safety organisations improve efficiencies by eliminating silos and streamlining workflows. CommandCentral is available as software as a service (SaaS) and provides enhanced communication functionality to meet the needs of the emergency services.
 
In support of the demo, Kelly Harrison - solution manager, CommandCentral suite - will speak on ‘Maximising the value of digital evidence and asset management solutions by streamlining workflows with CommandCentral.’ This will take place during the BAPCO 2020 conference, on March 11 at 12:30.
 
The session will demonstrate the value of streamlining workflows and achieving operational outcomes when deploying a digital evidence and asset management solution (or DEAMS). 
 
DEAMS platforms in isolation are primitive and time-consuming without intuitive automated workflows. With that in mind, an increasingly important question is, within today's digital society, how can public safety organisations utilise existing ICT platforms to increase their time, whilst operating within the community? What’s more, how can they overcome the challenge of managing evidential data for crime prosecution and crime prevention on a daily basis?
 
Kelly will demonstrate step-by-step operational scenarios in a non-technical, user-friendly demonstration. 
 
Digital transformation of policing
 
More than one-third of UK police forces are already benefiting from digital mobile policing, using Motorola Solutions’ Pronto digital policing application suite. 
 
Pronto is proven to deliver significant operational and cost-related benefits in an intuitive, easy-to-use software solution. It simplifies and streamlines disparate operational processes (such as time-consuming, resource-intensive paper-based systems) into an efficient, effective, mobile and interconnected solution. This removes the burden of managing essential information, thereby putting the power back into the hands of frontline users.
