WatchGuard Video's release of Version 6.0 software for the WatchGuard DV-1 police in-car video system. The Version 6.0 upgrade includes a feature known as “Record-After-the-Fact” which allows officers to retrieve buffered video that was not previously recorded to a DVD.
“The Power to Go Back in Time”
This feature goes far beyond the traditional pre-event video feature common in many digital in-car video systems. Record-After-the-Fact provides the ability to create a new video recording event up to several days after the time the event actually occurred. Many officers can recall times when important events occurred, but the in-car video camera was not recording. Furthermore, most agencies can point to multiple court cases that were lost because the video camera never recorded the event. At times, a patrol vehicle may happen to drive by a location where suspects have been loitering prior to committing a crime. With Record-After-the-Fact, those unexpected encounters can be recalled to assist in an investigation or to exonerate an officer.
