VQiPS - Video Quality in Public Safety

By Carlton Purvis, Published Apr 22, 2014, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

The Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS) working group is run by the US government and is comprised of "public safety practitioners, Federal partners, manufacturers, and representatives of standards making bodies," that meets annually to collaborate and share information on how surveillance is being used, what technology is available and what end users need to make it more efficient. 

We spoke with program manager Cuong Luu about Homeland Security's efforts to increase interoperability and the main limitations they find in city surveillance.

Tried collaborating with them. They allegedly fell off the edge of the world during the Fed shutdown last fall. Never heard from them again. Sometimes one does find justification to give away free work to collaborate with the Feds, but they gotta show up to the party for it to work. Another example of why "public-private partnership" sounds like a no-op phrase.

We participated this year, in Houston, and it was a good event. There were lots of cross organization discovery taking place and I would recomend participating in future events.
