VQiPS - Video Quality in Public Safety

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Apr 22, 2014

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.
