PC Body Camera Docking Station

Managing digital evidence can be a daunting task, especially for law enforcement agencies that need to handle large amounts of data. That’s where Audax DEMS (Digital Evidence Management System) and docking station solutions come in.

Audax Digital Evidence Management System

Audax offers DEMS for both of our Bio-AX and 20-1 cameras and these are connected with the Docking Station. Both offer a wide range of functionalities and are similar in their capabilities. The system is designed to manage Officer to Camera assignments via onboard QR code and also allows users to fully manage their recorded media.

Collect & Store Body Worn Video Digital Evidence

With Audax DEMS, you can collect and store digital evidence recorded on a BWV camera, and tag it with key words, case numbers, and other metadata to facilitate easy retrieval. For role-based functions, you can assign different permissions to different users or groups, giving organisations full control over user access rights, retention tables, and more.

Capable of Large Data Processing

The system is capable of processing large amounts of data securely, with redundancy backup and load balancing mechanisms in place for reliability. Audax offers both cloud-based and locally hosted servers for centralised storage and control, and automatic or timed data upload to simplify data management. You can also set up data retention policies per file type or all data types for ease of use.

Secure Video Viewing

With built-in AES media player for secure video viewing, the system offers role-based access control and user authentication for added security. In addition, you can issue secure one-time share links to other authorised external persons, making sharing evidence easy and secure.

Ideal for control rooms, Audax CMS offers dynamic management of ongoing live situations and has user SOS Panic Alerts for emergency situations.

You can also analyse past camera actions, locations, and more, allowing for a 360-degree audit trail of your digital evidence gathering for retrospective search. For data security, you can assign different permissions to different users, giving organisations complete control over user access rights.

The system is capable of processing large amounts of data and live video streaming, and it accepts virtually all IP-based cameras, including vehicle, mobile, fixed, traffic, and more. Audax CMS can be cloud-based or locally hosted, offering centralised storage and control.

With role-based access control and user authentication, the system ensures security, and you can view live or historic bread crumb trails of camera location-based activities. You can also converse with users via PTT or send text messages (certain models only) and harness the power of Google Maps via automated Geo Fence Alerting.

For added security, Audax CMS offers the ability to manage lost or stolen devices by issuing a Stun/Wipe command (Bio-AX). The Bio-AX camera is ONVIF Profile S compatible, allowing for integration into other compatible platforms, and it also offers the unique feature of remotely commanding camera recording.

Audax CMS offers complete situational awareness and dynamic management of live situations, making it an essential tool for control rooms and organisations that need to monitor user movements and camera actions.

In today’s world, it is important to ensure that data is kept secure and only accessed by those who are approved. This is particularly true for law enforcement agencies and security workers who use body-worn video (BWV) cameras to capture footage of their interactions with the public. In the UK, the Home Office and College of Policing provide technical guidance requirements for Police use of BWV cameras (but these are generally accepted as the authority for security professionals as well). One requirement is that they must have non-removable media storage within a sealed unit for data security and integrity.

Audax® BWV cameras, which are manufactured in the UK, are designed to meet these strict requirements. The cameras provide high-quality HD video and audio on secure non-removable memory. The camera is a sealed unit, and the standard 32 GB memory is ‘fixed’ to the motherboard. This means that the memory cannot be removed and it is ‘tagged’ to only work with the particular motherboard. By its unauthorised removal it will disable the entire memory and prove useless for data recovery.

All recordings are also secured by AES 256 encryption, which is one of the strongest and most recognised encryption methods available. This encryption is not only on the recordings held in the camera memory, but it also on the live streaming video, being transmitted to a control room. All video is protected by AES 256 encryption and the decoder / decryption media player (for secure video viewing) is hosted in Audax DEMS. Without access to this software, the video playback will just show a green screen and be useless to anyone. Our docking stations also have role-based access control and user authentication for security.

One of the other key features of Audax® BWV cameras is their password encryption. The cameras are password protected, and the settings are secured with the Audax® camera management software (CMS). This ensures that only authorised personnel have access to the footage and settings, adding an additional layer of security to the device.

Overall, Audax® BWV cameras are best-in-class for law enforcement agencies and security workers who require secure and reliable body-worn video cameras. Our adherence to the UK Home Office’s technical guidance requirements, non-removable media storage, and strong encryption methods make us an ideal choice for those who require the highest level of data security and integrity.

The Audax Holster Aware is a brand-new solution that detects whether a handgun, non-lethal weapon, CED (Conducted Energy Device) or PAVA Spray has been removed from a holster worn by the body worn camera wearer.  This new feature is now available across Audax’s range of pioneering Body Worn Video (BWV) cameras.

Audax have been pioneers in body worn video (BWV) technology for the past few decades. Once again, with the release of the Audax Holster Aware the BWV experts are leading the field with ground-breaking features that will change the way in which security and emergency service workers are protected.

Designed to minimise the number of actions a camera wearer must take, Audax’s Holster Aware Sensor recognises the presence of a firearm (or a non-lethal weapon, CED or PAVA Spray) within a holster and will trigger recording to begin via Bluetooth wireless technology to an Audax Bluetooth-enabled camera if this item is removed or inserted.

Before this technology, these workers would need to press the recording button on their BWV camera in order to capture the event and securely store it, however, if the camera wearer is faced with a situation where they must draw their weapon, the pressing of a button will likely be impossible. However, without this vital recorded evidence, prosecuting criminals can be tricky. That’s why this innovative technology is so important.

With Audax Holster Aware, the officer or security personnel wearing the camera does not need to worry about pressing a button to begin recording, as the removal of the weapon from the holster will do this automatically. This simple action could potentially save crucial time and capture valuable evidence.

Using wireless Bluetooth technology, the sensor pairs and connects to the nearest Audax camera in a 10m range, providing instant recording initiation on the BWV camera. This level of connectivity also enables an audit report to be generated in Audax DEMS to log every instance a sidearm has been drawn from a holster.

Adam Liardet, Managing Director of Audax comment: “At Audax, we are always looking for new ways to enhance operational capability in the field. This innovative new feature was designed to prioritise the safety of the emergency services and security professionals, along with other BWV users.”

Audax – worldwide leaders in Body Worn Video technology – will continue to use their extensive experience and knowledge to develop and advance their products, and increase the safety of those who wear them.
