' bodyworn devices send live streaming footage back to a control centre to enable faster response times for road accidents and emergencies in the City of Makati, part of the Manila metropolitan area.
The company's EdgeVis Live solution is powering the live-streaming capability. Digital Barriers claims the platform creates live streaming from any location, including over wireless networks. The bodyworn cameras can operate for eight hours and are equipped with a panic button to provide traffic officers additional protection.
EdgeVis is based on patented transport video interface (TVI) video compression technology.
