Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS) Fact Sheet


First responders rely heavily on video technology to in-crease their situational awareness while on site at an incident, monitoring the situation from afar, or conducting day-to-day response. As video technology has evolved, equipment options have become increasingly complex. Many first responder agencies lack the tools and subject matter expertise needed to make informed video system purchasing decisions, so they often turn to manufacturers to direct them. The Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS) initiative provides information and support to first responders so they can articulate their video quality needs and ultimately buy the best products to fit their unique needs.
