CCW 2013: Danish paramedics first to use Motorola’s new image management system for TETRA radios

Motorola Solutions used Critical Communications World 2013 to announce the first contract win of its TETRA image management solution unveiled in London earlier this year.

The Danish Authority in Zealand will use the system, which includes the MTP6750, the first TETRA radio with an integrated five megapixel camera and the Photograph and Intelligence Communication System (PICS) image management solution.

Through PICS, images captured on the MTP6750 can be managed, authenticated and shared within a public safety organisation´s existing workflows, enabling verification of captured images at any point and reducing the chance of evidence being deemed unusable in a prosecution.

At the launch of the system, Motorola said it expected the main users to be police forces, but paramedics and doctors are often first to be called to a crime or emergency scene to help to save lives. Rapid and secure evidence capture can help them find out the root cause of a mission-critical situation and even improve prosecution success rates.

With limited resources, evidence often is not captured or degrades before dedicated evidence-gathering officers can be deployed. With this in mind, the Health Authority in Zealand, Denmark, is empowering its new paramedics and doctors team with Motorola´s mission-critical image management system.

The Health dispatch and control room centre in the region Zealand (one of five regions) is the first in Denmark to employ paramedics and doctors, equipped with their own cars to help increase efficiency in saving lives and in successful prosecution rates. The group of 26 doctors and paramedics are on duty 24x7 and are covering a region with 821,000 citizens.

Tommy Jonasson, head of Health dispatch and Control centre, Zealand in Denmark, said: ‘The MTP6750 handheld radio from Motorola offers health professionals the reliable and secure voice communication to stay in touch with dispatch and colleagues at all time, plus it includes in the same intuitive form, a built-in camera that enables them to capture images at a crime or emergency scene in order to collect evidence. The image capture and management solution is the right fit for the workflows and needs of our paramedics and doctors team.’
