  2. In-car Video Camera Systems for Police that provide for officer safety. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2014

    We have had a number of police cameras systems in our department before the Martel DC3. All of them where a bust for reliability. Most of the video cameras where dash-cams and had poor resolution. After we got our first Martel dashcam we order 3 more right away. They fit in all of our vehicles even though we have suv tahoes and impalas and crown vics. I dont normally write reviews but I was compelled to tell every police department that the Martel police car camera systems are well worth the money!!! Do it right the first time. Solid state, Gps, wireless file transfer, radar cable interface, touch screen control, 2 cameras front and rear, 2.4ghz wireless microphone, Military MIL810G and the best part manufactured in the USA.

  3. Police in-car camera system wireless video transferring package 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2014

    When we bought our first couple of DC3 police cameras we did not plan to wireless upload our videos. After the second year we order 11 more in car cameras systems from Martel. Now we had a problem and needed to manage the cars. There are 2 shifts a day. So we needed a way to get the videos from the police car to the server without having a Captain pull memory cards. So we called Martel and they explained how the wireless\wifi uploading from the cars to the station worked. The video evidence files will be automatically uploaded into the video management software through a encrypted 802.11n private network. The officer has no interaction with the system which means our chain of evidence is pure and untainted. The files are moved down the wireless network with any hands touching the video. The DC3 police car camera does not need a MDT or computer, this was important to us since we did not have a laptop in our cruisers. Plus if we had to integrate it with windows we would have to hire a IT technician. The Captain can review the video and burn them to dvd if they are needed for court. Well its been a few years now and we have over 56 cars downloading a day. It works just like advertised. Here is the kicker Martel has been updating us FREE with new Video Server software since we started and gets getting faster and better every year. We are always going to be a Martel customer. Even some of our officers who have left to take jobs in our county have had their sheriffs departments order Martel video systems. Is the ultimate Fleet management software for wireless video transferring.

  4. Half the price Police In-Car Camera Video System with Wireless video uploading from the car 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2014

    Allot police departments already have video in car cameras systems there are still several thousand departments without police dash-cams recording devices in their police vehicles. The police dashcam has some huge advantages over the police body cameras. The biggest is that the in car camera system automatically starts recording when the light bar is activated or the speed of the police car goes over a certain speed. The draw back or con of the police body worn cameras is that it is totally up to the officer to hit record. Not the best idea if you want video to be recorded during a huge incident. The biggest problem with body cameras is that there is no pre event recording. The one minute before the incident so you never really see why the officer is making the arrest. 1080P In-Car Camera System with with GPS and H.264 may not be the best solution because of the huge files that are created. Storage is going to be expensive. Police camera system that incorporates GPS Geotag that stamps the longitude and latitude coordinates onto every video file, frame by frame and picture by picture. Many departments deployed the in-car video camera to record traffic violations now days. Allot of police departments who go 10-8 need to have a police in car camera system and a police body camera on them at all times. 10-8 mean on duty by the way.

  5. American made police car camera system 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2014

    Since Martel manufactures all their parts in the USA it really makes a difference. We have had 12 Martel video systems since 2001. None of these units have had any issues and have been working perfectly for over 13 years now. I cant say enough about Martel quality police cameras. Now the DC3 in car systems are our next purchase and we are going to get them with the wireless video uploading transferring system from the police car to the police station. After this our next Martel system will be a add on ALPR license plate reader.

  6. Police car cameras and the modern police agency 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2014

    We chose the Martel DC3 police in car camera system because we wanted the wireless uploading of the video. We have now over 19 Martel video systems and you need to watch their videos, it impressive. Police cameras in the car guard us against law suits. The touchscreen is so small and can be mounted anywhere. I do recommend getting the drivers license scanner. Its been a real crime tool for my department.

  7. New, police in car video, 802.11N Only One in the world that is MIlitary 810G 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st May 2014

    The DC# police in car video is made in the USA. I have been looking a reasonable priced video system for our police department now for over a year. I looked at mirror units and seat mounted police in car video systems. I found them to be lacking the area of durability. The police officers treat them very harshly. The Martel police in car video has no button just a touch screen. It has no moving part, totally solid state and records to flash cards. It also has the ability to auto wirelessly download the video from the police car to the police stations server. All that and a price we can afford. We have had them now 6 months and I would recommend them to every department I meet.
