Digital Video Solutions



Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers, when used in combination with the Panasonic Arbitrator 360°, comprise the most advanced incident digital video documentation system available today. The system eliminates the need for tape—revolutionizing the way government and military operations capture, process, retrieve and transfer video. Toughbook digital video solutions are designed to withstand the harshest environments likely to be encountered by military personnel and other federal officials.


Military police at large U.S. Army bases around the world encounter many of the same issues faced by state and municipal police departments. They operate around the clock in all kinds of weather conditions, including extreme temperatures, high humidity and intense sunlight. Policing bases that often cover tens of thousands of acres requires a staff that can remain in constant contact with headquarters and each other, as well as with local police in the communities surrounding the base. As with state and municipal police, military police must effectively capture, store and manage video evidence, so their computers and video cameras must be able to withstand the rigors of routine—and not so routine—police fieldwork.

U.S. Army Military Police use rugged, weatherproof Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers. With features, such as advanced wireless capabilities, sealed keyboards, shock-mounted hard drives and daylight-viewable touch screens, officers are able to operate 24/7, rain or shine. And, with the multitude of mounting solutions available, Toughbook computers can be used in cars, trucks, bicycles or even Segways. Adding the Panasonic Panasonic Arbitrator 360° offers military police patrol units the versatile evidence capture and documentation solution they require. The Panasonic Arbitrator 360° is the first solid-state, all-digital video system with an integrated camera, microphone and recorder built to perform in even the harshest environments. Using state of the art compression, the Arbitrator 360° enables rapid wireless transmission of full-motion video files. The captured video is digitally archived, eliminating the need for videotapes, and making it easier to search by a number of criteria, including date, vehicle or incident, Because Toughbook units are the most widely used mobile computers among local police departments, there is a wide range of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware to meet the needs of the U.S. military police.
