Sainte Anne de Bellevue firm MaestroVision has won a contract worth nearly $120,000 to equip Longueuil Police with its state of the art audiovisual recording systems for its three interrogation rooms.
“The systems that we sell to police departments and to universities are all derived from broadcast technology,” MaestroVision video expert Michel Girard told The Suburban. “This solution is suited to those kinds of applications.”
By indexing interview notes, the Quebec-developed technology makes it simplifies and speeds up the process of selecting salient portions of the recordings, enabling investigators to use the system themselves without having to rely upon a highly trained technician, added MaestroVision marketing director Maria Martinez.
“The interface is very easy to user,” she said in an interview.
The company has sold its systems to many police departments all over Quebec and has just made inroads into the United States, where it has an office.
“Lévis, Quebec City and [Canadian] Military Police are some of the police services that use it,” added Girard. “We just sold two in Florida. We also have people in Mexico.”
Founded in Vaudreuil-Dorion in 1998, MaestroVision subsequently moved its headquarters to Sainte Anne de Bellevue. In addition to the applications that it sells to law enforcement agencies, it also provides leading-edge broadcast solutions for webcasting council meetings, municipal video libraries, broadcast automation, video servers, traffic management and classroom recording, among other applications.
