Appendix A: Acronymns, Abbreviations and References A.1 Acronymns and Abbreviations References

1.0 Introduction
The use of body-worn cameras (BWCs) by criminal justice practitioners (e.g., patrol, corrections, SWAT and other tactical responders) offers potential advantages in keep-ing officers safe, enabling situational awareness, improving community relations and accountability, and providing evidence for trial. These products are also sometimes called officer-worn or wearable cameras. In the last couple of years, there has been a dramatic increase in the criminal justice use, public and media attention and commercial offerings of BWCs. This market survey report aggregates and summarizes information on commercial BWCs to aid criminal justice practitioners considering planning, acquisition and implementation of the technology in their agency. In 2011, a brief market survey reference was published by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Sensor, Surveillance and Biometric Technologies Center of Excellence (SSBT CoE), Body Worn Camera Information Sheet (http://goo.gl/rSWrcV).[1] The following year, a report was published that highlighted topics for agencies to consider while pursuing BWC implementation, A Primer on Body-Worn Cameras for Law Enforcement (https://www.justnet.org/pdf/00-Body-Worn-Cameras-508.pdf).[2] This report updates
product information in those earlier offerings.


1.1 About the NIJ SSBT CoE
The NIJ SSBT CoE is a center within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System.[3] The CoE provides scientific and technical support to NIJ’s research and development (R&D) efforts. The Center also provides technology assistance, information, and support to criminal justice agencies. The CoE supports the NIJ sensor and surveillance portfolio and biometrics portfolio. The Centers of Excellence are the authoritative resource within the NLECTC System for both practitioners and developers in their technology area(s) of focus. The primary role of the CoEs is to assist in the transition of law
enforcement technology from the laboratory into practice by first adopters. 1.2 BWC Information Sought
In December 2013, the SSBT CoE, through NIJ, published a notice within the Federal Register requesting information and comments from vendors in support of this market survey.

 

(https://federalregister.gov/a/2013-30246).[4] The following categories of infor-mation were sought for the various BWC systems contained herein. As needed, additional comments for the categories are also included here.


1. Model Number and Name of the BWC.
2. Where the BWC is Mounted (e.g., Head, Chest, Glasses, Helmet, Various).
a. Optional mounting locations require add-on accessories.
3. Maximum Video Resolution of the BWC (e.g., 640x480, 1080p).
4. Recording Speed of the BWC (e.g., 30 fps).
a. Recording speeds often depend on the video resolution selected.
5. Recording Format of the BWC (e.g., MPEG-4, MOV).
6. Whether the BWC captures Still Photos.
7. Whether the BWC embeds a Time/Date Stamp in the recorded video.
8. The Field of View of the BWC (e.g., 75°, 120°).
9. The Lux Rating of the BWC.
a. The minimum amount of light that produces an acceptable image. This rating is for normal camera operation and does not take into account any Night Mode.
10. Whether the BWC has a Night Mode and in what format (e.g., Low Light, IR Lens, etc.).
11. Whether the BWC has a Playback Screen for on-person video viewing.
12. The Audio Format of the BWC (e.g., MP2, AAC).
13. Whether the BWC contains Video Safeguards that limit access or editing by users.
14. Whether the BWC has a Pre-Event Record feature. (And, if so, the buffered time and whether the recording includes audio.)
15. Whether the BWC possesses an Event Marking capability.
a. Event marking capabilities provided by offline video management software is considered a “No” response.
16. The Battery Type used by the BWC and whether it is internal or removable.
17. The Recording Life of the BWC battery.
18. The Standby duration of the BWC battery.
19. The Charge Time of the BWC battery (use N/A for disposable batteries only).
20. The onboard memory Storage capacity of the BWC.
21. The Recording Time of the BWC under default resolution settings.
a. Recording time is dependent on the video resolution settings and BWC
memory.
22. Whether the BWC possesses a GPS, and if so whether that information is embedded in recorded video.
23. The physical Dimensions (in inches) of the BWC (camera, control unit and/or battery).
24. The Weight of the BWC and all accessories worn by a user.
25. Whether the BWC has undergone Environment Testing, and if so, what stan-dard did it pass.
26. Whether a Warranty comes standard with the BWC unit.
a. A range of warranty durations indicates an optional extended warranty is available.
27. Whether Video Software is available for video management of the BWC recordings, and if so, whether it is required to use the BWC.
28. Whether there is a default Police Radio Interface for the BWC.
29. Whether the BWC is Vehicle Mountable for dashboard applications.
a. Many BWCs that can be mounted in a vehicle require optional accessories; these are not included in the price.
30. The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the BWC.
a. Does not include optional features, accessories or services plans.
31. Whether the BWC has Wireless capabilities to communicate with a computer or external DVR unit.
32. Any Other information or notes that is relevant to the BWC.
