Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS)
First responders rely heavily on video technology to increase their situational awareness while onsite at an incident, monitoring an incident from afar or conducting day-to-day response. As video technology has evolved, equipment options have become increasingly complex. Many first response agencies lack the tools and subject matter expertise needed to make informed video system purchasing decisions, so they often turn to manufacturers to direct them in their purchasing decisions. The VQiPS Initiative provides information and support to first responders so they can articulate their own video quality needs, and ultimately buy the best products to fit their unique needs. Through the creation of unbiased guidance and educational resources, VQiPS assists the first response community in clearly defining and communicating their video quality needs. VQiPS empowers practitioners with the tools and information needed to purchase and deploy the appropriate video technology solutions to support their mission. 8
