CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 27, 2005--Global ePoint, Inc. (Nasdaq: GEPT - News), a leading manufacturer of security technologies for the aviation, military, law enforcement, industrial and commercial markets, announced today that a leading Southern California Police Department is equipping 25 patrol vehicles with its revolutionary Ranger 350i Wireless Mobile Video Surveillance System. This order reflects the Company’s ongoing relationship with agencies and organizations dedicated to emergency first response and “as it happens” field command management.
One of the most progressive law enforcement agencies in the country - based in Southern California and known for its consistent and ready adaptation of cutting-edge technologies - has chosen the Ranger 350i platform which will be integrated into existing in-car laptops using proprietary custom software developed by Global ePoint.
The new enhanced Ranger 350i Mobile Video Surveillance system combines the latest in digital video technology with powerful and effective automated wireless data transfer, unsurpassed backend management, easy archival access and data/video retrieval, and a compact long-term storage solution.
In patrol vehicle applications, the Ranger 350i supports essential police officer duties without distraction and automates numerous critical functions once video surveillance data is collected, retrieved and managed based on a number of predetermined criteria - easily customized and tailored to a police department’s specific needs. After a specified period of time, recorded video data is also automatically transferred to DVD media for long-term storage.
“It is a must-have tool for any law enforcement department,” said Daryl Gates, former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Global ePoint CEO, Toresa Lou states, “We are encouraged by another leading Police Department having chosen the Ranger 350i Mobile Video Surveillance System over numerous competitors...and by the fact that there are an estimated 500,000 patrol vehicles nationwide in need of this superior wireless technology. Virtually any vehicle or aircraft requiring digital surveillance equipment for emergency service, Homeland Security or military field command management can and will deliver optimum performance with the assistance and support of this new mobile DVR system.”
