Audax Global Solutions Ltd, world leaders in pioneering body worn video (BWV) technology, today announced that it had received notification that it will receive an order to provide 20,000 Audax® Bio-AX® cameras to a national police force. The roll-out of body worn cameras, valued at approx. £13.2 million ($17M / €15.2M), ranks as globally significant and is expected to start in December 2021 with final delivery completed by May 2022.
The Cameras will be deployed to assist in the Government’s aim to modernise policing, assisting with border protection and assisting security operatives dealing with organised crime. Adam Liardet, Founder and Owner of Audax said, “The use of body worn cameras promotes transparency and openness, which inevitably leads to improved officer performance and increased public confidence in national policing. We are privileged to be chosen to assist and look forward to working with our local assembly partner for further projects in the region.”
Audax will be working alongside their in-country technology partner to manage the deployment. This partner will be assisting in the final assembly of key components of the Bio-AX® system in country, with support provided directly by the Audax team. This collaborative approach will provide skilled jobs to locals in the region and facilitate the transfer of technical skills.
The rugged, all-in-one, Bio-AX® camera is designed to protect both the police and the public with its intuitive recording function and live streaming of securely encrypted video. The camera’s internal GPS provides location on the video and live asset tracking is possible via mapping in the control room. A unique innovation of the Bio-AX® camera is the ability for staff in the control room to turn on the live stream remotely. This feature not only provides managers with visibility and situational awareness of their assets ‘on the ground’, but also ensures complete oversight for compliance and professional standards. These features make Bio-AX® a valuable tool to ensure professionalism. The product offers superior battery technology, which provides world-beating live streaming and recording durations.
Once completed, this will be the latest in a series of global body worn camera deployments, with both public authorities and law enforcement. Additional deployments include: 8000 cameras to Vietnam, numerous Councils and private security firms in the UK, a large volume of local police users in France and other users in several EU nations as well as the USA.
Audax is looking forward to sharing further details of this exciting project in the coming weeks.
