FLIR Launches Body Cameras Unified With VMS (TruWitness)

By Sean Patton, Published on Dec 11, 2018

While FLIR is best known for their thermal cameras, now they have expanded into body cameras, launching TruWITNESS, a public safety focused body wearable camera 'unified' with their VMS offering.

In this note, based on a conversation with FLIR we look at:

  • What is TruWitness?
  • Does it integrate with 3rd Party Systems?
  • How is it deployed and managed?
  • How much does it cost?
  • How is it sold?
  • How does it compare to the competition?
