Panasonic Announces Arbitrator 360°HD

Next generation solution for digital evidence capture delivers 1080p Full HD resolution for improved officer safety and overall situational awareness

The Arbitrator 360°HD system integrates video capture, storage, transfer, and file management to serve as a complete digital evidence solution. The system includes Panasonic's SafeServ™ Evidence Management Software Suite, which provides secure evidence management with a built-in case file management system. It also includes the ability to ingest an expanded range of digital evidence including still images, IP surveillance video footage and automatic import of video from Panasonic’s WV-TW310 wearable camera systems. The SafeServ suite can be configured to fit an agency's specific chain of custody requirements for recall, retention and dissemination. Backward-compatibility with previous Panasonic Arbitrator models helps to protect customers’ existing investments.


The Arbitrator 360°HD system's wireless options allow for simple file transfer, with an integrated 802.11n radio that supports 2X2 MIMO offloading. The Arbitrator 360°HD allows for offload manually or via the CommandR™ application running on a Wi-Fi or wireless broadband-enabled Windows OS device. The system also connects seamlessly with in-vehicle routers such as Utility Inc.’s Rocket for expanded flexibility in wireless offload via wireless broadband or Wi-Fi. The Rocket architecture provides complete IP networking and routing in the vehicle to expand command and control capabilities and overall situational awareness.


“In the many years our department has relied on Panasonic’s Arbitrator 360° in-car video systems, they have proven their value countless times in helping officers capture video evidence that is vital to investigations and prosecutions,” said Chief Mark Tolbert, Morganton, NC, Public Safety. “The upgrade to 1080p Full HD quality and additional functionalities will only serve to make this system an even more important tool for our officers, our agency and our city.”


“As one of the world’s leading developers of video technology, Panasonic is in a unique position to leverage advancements in our line of surveillance cameras toward improving evidence capture for first responders,” said Greg Peratt, Senior Director, Video Solutions Integration Team, Panasonic System Communications Corporation of North America. “The Arbitrator 360°HD system provides agencies with a platform to record evidence in unmatched clarity and quality while ensuring the integrity of the chain of custody and delivering significant time and cost savings in the acquisition, management and review of recorded evidence.”




In the United States, the Panasonic Arbitrator 360°HD system will be available in October 2013 from authorized Panasonic evidence capture resellers.


Panasonic’s Arbitrator 360°HD and other technology for law enforcement professionals will be showcased at the 120th Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference, October 19-23, 2013 in Philadelphia.
