International. It is anticipated that the global installed base of cameras for official use and body cameras in police forces will increase by almost 30% for 2018, with more than 1,5 millions of cameras in use worldwide.
With a greater number of cameras in use and an associated increase in the possible collection of evidence, the capabilities of the underlying digital evidence management systems are becoming an increasingly critical factor in the ability of the forces of law to effectively manage and interpret huge repositories of digital evidence.
IHS Markit describes digital test management software as the software used to manage digital multimedia tests. At the entry level, this software should be able to manage the storage of captured video through a body-worn camera or a video surveillance system in the car, however, the initial intake of media from the Recording device does not have to be inside the digital test management software. The software can act as a platform to connect existing repositories and device configuration applications. Digital evidence software can be combined with cameras in the body or systems in the car or sold separately.
The market for digital evidence management software has evolved rapidly, as the federal funding programs in the United States for body-worn cameras used by the police were announced at 2014. This funding and subsequent initiatives stimulated and accelerated increases in camera shipments at the state level. The United States and the entire world have been directing their efforts towards increasingly sophisticated digital evidence management solutions.
The capabilities of digital evidence management software can range from simple media storage to sophisticated investigative and case creation tools. The evolution of the ecosystem and the integrations with the records management systems and other existing law enforcement workflows allow the application of the law to obtain efficiencies and additional knowledge of digital multimedia evidence. These workflows offer the possibility of faster evidence availability and more far-reaching investigations.
The so-called "Body Worn Cameras & Digital Evidence Management Report" from IHS Markit focuses on the worldwide market for body cameras, digital evidence management software and in-car video surveillance systems used by police and authorities.
