NEWPORT, R.I. -- LiveWave, Inc., a leading developer of enterprise video surveillance solutions for mission critical security applications, announced it was selected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Federal Protective Service to provide FirstView RoverCamTM Systems for real-time mobile video surveillance from their incident command vehicles.
The mission of the ICE Federal Protective Service (FPS) is to provide law enforcement and security services to over one million tenants and daily visitors to all federally owned and leased facilities nationwide. FPS focuses directly on the interior security of the nation and the reduction of crimes and potential threats to federal facilities throughout the nation.
FPS successfully deployed FirstView RoverCams at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Based on this success, FPS currently utilizes these systems for several applications and events that require mobile and long range surveillance. RoverCams have been operational during several high profile events and most recently for the Red Sox World Series Victory Parade in Boston on October 30th.
"LiveWave is once again honored to support the Federal Protective Service," said Peter Mottur, LiveWave's CEO. "The RoverCam system has proven to be an effective rapidly deployable surveillance tool that can aid law enforcement in a wide range of security and safety applications. Our network based FirstView software allows these images to be securely distributed to authorized users, acting as a force multiplier while enhancing inter-agency interoperability."
The FirstView RoverCam system is available as a fully integrated turn-key package for law enforcement, homeland security and military vehicles. The package includes a rugged vehicle mounted robotic camera system, a notebook computer running FirstView's(R) Video Encoder/Mobile Digital Video Recorder, along with video display, vehicle computer stand, a variety of wireless options for real-time networked video distribution, as well as installation, hosting and support services.
