Incidents involving vehicles are time-consuming issues to resolve. A lack of solid evidence can often mean companies automatically accept liability, but easy settlements have led to an increase in cases against those operators – who quickly get known as a soft-target for further similar claims. False claims, crash-for-cash and shrinkage are now costing businesses millions each year. Add to this the issues of vandalism and attacks on drivers and the job of a transport manager becomes evermore difficult.
By capturing footage from vehicle-mounted cameras, Brigade’s vehicle Digital Video Recorder (DVR) systems offer the solution. It provides an accurate witness and gives irrefutable evidence in the case of an incident. Having recorded footage where there are conflicting reports of actual events or by being able to prove a staged accident, companies can make major cost savings whilst importantly support their drivers, who are often the subject of increased scrutiny after an incident.
RecordableRecords from up to eight cameras simultaneously.
Speed & LocationBuilt-in GPS for recording speed and location.
High Quality CompressionAudio functionality with high quality compression (monitor and/or camera must have microphone).
Motion DetectionMotion detection for capturing footage when the vehicle is unattended.
G-sensorsG-sensor provides impact data and accelerating and braking.

Both four and eight-channel vehicle DVR systems include models with WiFi and/or 4G connectivity capabilities, allowing data to be accessed from the recorder without physically having to go to the vehicle.
