New versions of the company’s 360/VR cameras now allow search & rescue to combine color video and near-infrared illumination, as well as to stream directly to the cloud over 4G-LTE
[Dallas, Texas, August 10, 2018] Bounce Imaging, a leading provider of advanced tactical cameras for fire/rescue, industrial safety, law enforcement, and defense, has announced a new version of its 360-degree safety/rescue cameras at the Fire-Rescue International 2018 conference in Dallas, Texas. In its first year at the conference, Bounce Imaging was selected to be highlighted along with other cutting-edge fire and rescue technology companies in the “Innovation Corral”.

At the show, the company announced that it is releasing new versions of its 360-degree/VR rescue cameras that can use both color video and infrared illumination via changes to its lenses and illumination systems. In addition, the company announced that the 4G-LTE capability it has recently added to its tactical camera systems (in partnership with Verizon) has also been extended to its rescue and safety camera systems.
“We are constantly working to push forward our technology to better serve the needs of first-responders. These new system capabilities and our growing partnership with Verizon on the 4G-LTE front are just two ways we are working to fulfill our commitment to bring cutting-edge technologies to first-response at cost accessible even to small departments.” – Francisco Aguilar, CEO Bounce Imaging
