VIEVU, the industry leader in body worn video (BWV) for Law Enforcement today announced availability of its VIEVU², the first ruggedized, wearable video camera for "Prosumers" and the professional workforce built on the same military-grade technology used by law enforcement and government agencies. The VIEVU² camera protects against erroneous accountability/liability, efficiently and accurately documents claims, and mitigates workplace theft while C-level and other executives can use it to document meetings or other important employee interactions.
 

Milled from a solid block of aluminum, VIEVU² withstands the bumps/bruises of daily use and can be worn on a belt, lapel, pocket, or other places bulkier cameras simply don't fit. The camera's professional appearance and functionality make it ideal for applications including: private security, general contractors, insurance adjusters, facilities maintenance, fleet management, inspectors, and technicians; who can all now utilize the same camera technology trusted by law enforcement.

VIEVU² records in three configurable settings up to full 1080p HD resolution and features a proven law enforcement "one switch" design for quick activation even while wearing gloves. Footage can be streamed to a smartphone using the VIEVU² mobile app. The video can then be reviewed, stored, and shared without requiring a computer.

Additional specifications:

  • High dynamic microphone 
  • 16 GB internal storage
  • 802.11 Live Video Streaming
  • Waterproof (IPX5)
  • Remarkably small and lightweight (2.4 oz)

"At VIEVU, our sole focus is to make the best body worn video cameras on the market. With VIEVU², businesses can augment their existing stationary camera systems by using body worn video to document interactions with customers or other employees and protect themselves from liability," said Steve Ward, VIEVU CEO and founder.

VIEVU is the market leader of wearable cameras for police, corrections, campus and private security. VIEVU's cameras meet the demands of public safety, are preferred because of their ease of use, rugged and durable design.

Legal Questions
ContractingBusiness.com had questions related to potential privacy issues that could result if a technician attempts to use a camera at a customer's home or business.

Q: Does the user (such as an HVAC technician visiting a site) have to inform the resident that he is recording the visit?
A:  It depends on the state the technician/contractor works in. According to VIEVU, some states have two party consent laws while others don't. For a full list of states regulations, visit: http://www.vegress.com/index.php/can-i-record-calls-in-my-state

Q: Does the user need to obtain written or verbal permission to record the visit?
A: it is best to record verbal permission on-camera, and if the party says "No", simply switch off the camera and go about your business.

Q: Does this type of video recording override the regulations by a building owner related to their building's security rules? (Similar to "concealed carry" not applying when entering many buildings.)
A: Video recording is not held to the same standards as concealed carry and most people carry mobile recording devices into buildings every day (cell phones, tablets, etc.). The key here is how the footage is used. If used to intentionally damage a company or person, then it is illegal, but the contractor/technician can use the footage for liability protection, civil litigation, etc. The footage recorded in homes/businesses also cannot be socialized in any way (uploaded to YouTube/Facebook/Twitter) unless given consent.

Q: Are there any official court rulings that allow proceedings to be recorded?
A: Please see links for examples/court rulings:
