Designed using extensive feedback from law enforcement agencies, and drawing from more than 50 years of Panasonic video innovations, the Arbitrator 360° maximizes officer safety by enabling a 360-degree view surrounding the entire vehicle. Its intuitive user interface can simultaneously display and record up to five camera feeds, so patrol officers can effortlessly monitor their entire surroundings from the driver's seat. Live video streaming capabilities are built in to the Arbitrator 360° as an additional safety feature. Police dispatchers can now monitor what's happening in each patrol car from headquarters. If an officer is in trouble, such as an altercation during a traffic stop, the dispatcher can remotely zoom the camera for a better picture, or change the frames-per-second bit rate for more details.
One upgrade from the previous Arbitrator version is the supporting software, which was developed and will be maintained exclusively by Panasonic to enable complete quality control. Key attributes to the new Arbitrator software include:
- Continuity: The consistent front- and back-end software interface makes it incredibly simple for users to monitor, record and access saved videos - all with minimal training. The software is also backward-compatible with older hardware.
- Remote Management: The system can update vehicle settings, vehicle software and client software all from the administrator console, eliminating the need to adjust settings in each vehicle manually.
- Virtual Case Files: The system can manage all types of digital evidence, ensuring a secure and auditable data source with every image and video file retrievable through a simple case number search.
