Federal Signal Corporation's Safety and Security Systems Group (SSG), a world leader in public safety solutions, today announced its strategic partnership with Edesix Ltd, a leading manufacturer of body-worn camera systems. This partnership will offer the jointly-developed IndiCue family of law enforcement video offerings, a comprehensive suite of products that provide law enforcement professionals the ability to collect, distribute, and manage video evidence. With streamlined use and predictable costs, IndiCue makes it easy for police agencies to implement body-worn video programs without risking the hidden fees and hardware management headaches that have plagued body-worn video programs in the past. Federal Signal and Edesix will debut IndiCue at Booth 4327 of the 2016 International Association of Chiefs of Police trade show in San Diego, CA.

"Edesix designs and manufactures the highest-performance, easiest-to-use body worn camera solutions on the market, and Federal Signal has an extensive channel reach and deep expertise in designing and integrating law enforcement equipment into vehicles. The overlap between our companies' strengths could not be better," said Richie McBride, CEO of Edesix.

The CueCamTM is a rugged, wearable camera designed to capture incidents from the officer's point of view. It comes equipped with advanced features like standard or high-definition resolution, built-in GPS for camera location tracking and video geolocation, seamless RFID-based dynamic camera allocation, on-camera encryption, built-in Wi-Fi, and an IP65 enclosure rating. CueCamTM is available in models with 8 to 14 hours continuous recording with configurable pre-record, and can live-stream video and audio while simultaneously storing high quality footage.

CueClassifyTM is the IndiCueTM family's comprehensive back-office management software suite, able to import and manage evidence collected by the CueCamTM, CueCarTM, or 3rd party cameras. It delivers a streamlined user interface for managing body worn cameras and collected footage, and provides a suite of functions including automatic footage download and simple, intuitive redaction. CueClassifyTM is exceptionally scalable, allowing customers to manage one camera or tens of thousands of cameras with equal ease. Furthermore, CueClassifyTM can be deployed in the cloud, on-premises, or a hybrid of the two, with straightforward storage and equipment pricing regardless of configuration.

Due for full rollout in early 2017, CueCarTM is an in-car video solution based on the CueCamTM architecture. Designed to capture multi-perspective footage from any police vehicle, CueCarTM is equipped with the same security and footage protection features as the CueCamTM. The CueCarTM is robust, secure, and capable of recording and streaming high quality video and audio for evidential purposes. Unlike other in-car systems, the CueCarTM is fully web-based and Wi-Fi enabled, allowing footage and associated notes to be accessed, updated, and shared from a tablet PC or an existing mobile data terminal via Federal Signal's CueClassifyTM. The CueCarTM unique system controller enables initiation of recording by external cues and our multi-camera installation can provide dash, rear, and light bar-mounted views.

"Body-worn video saves life, property, and speeds the resolution of investigations, but traditionally has come with unpredictable costs and difficulty managing evidence," said Matthew Brady, SVP of Federal Signal's SSG group. "IndiCue solves those problems, making the benefits of bodycams available to agencies and communities of all sizes."

The IndiCueTM system has been deployed with a law enforcement agency in North Carolina for several months, with strong praise for its functionality and budget impact.
