Intergraph Video Responder allows the investigation to start while the incident is underway. The product leverages award-winning video technology to enhance situational awareness and to provide public safety agencies with a powerful tool for aiding first responders and incident commanders. Video Responder helps dispatchers size a response appropriately, so one or two officers are not sent when 10 are needed or 10 when only one or two are needed. It gives dispatchers a real-time visual of the scene or even of the perpetrator, which allows them to provide better information to the officers before they arrive at the scene of the incident. Knowing what an officer faces before arriving on the scene is invaluable; it increases officer safety, efficiency, and overall public safety.
