The UK-based wearable camera expert already supplies VideoBadges to the Abu Dhabi police force. With the new office, the company is targeting sectors including security, transport, parking, retail, construction and the emergency services in the region.

“Body Worn Cameras have been proven to help improve the safety of those in public facing roles, whilst producing compelling legal evidence when needed,” explained Richie McBride, managing director of Edesix.

“We see the Middle East as a fast-growing market and have recently opened an Edesix office in Dubai to ensure that we are at the forefront of the wearable camera market in that region. At the same time, we are keen to support our growing channel within the UAE and promote our current VMS integrated solutions there,” McBride added.

Edesix has recently launched ONStream which aims to enable seamless Body Worn Camera (BWC) integration with existing Video Management Systems (VMS). Cameras integrate seamlessly with VideoManager and leading CCTV Video Management Systems to capture footage instantly for the security staff.

“Fixed security cameras connected to a VMS are a powerful tool for monitoring and securing many different environments, from retail floors to distribution centres. By integrating wearable cameras, it gives security teams the ability to view unparalleled detail of incidents as they unfold,” McBride said.

Edesix’s software aims to protect valued staff and capture secure footage for future review. It enables immediate response by control rooms and later review by supervisors. The service is fully encrypted with audit trails to protect the evidential quality of footage stored, McBride concluded.
