New laser-based speed camera meets international standards


A new laser-based hand-held speed camera system has been certified to be in compliance with International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) performance specifications for enforcement technology equipment and has been added to the IACP Conforming Product List (CPL). The LaserCam 4 is the fourth generation hand-held video LIDAR (Laser Illuminated Detection And Ranging) from Kustom Signals. Powered by the ProLaser 4 for superior performance, the fourth-generation hand-held camera offers greater range to target, faster acquisition time, and image resolution of plates at longer distances than previous models, providing a comprehensive video record of speed enforcement and target tracking history. With patent-pending features including AutoTrak, the LaserCam 4 continually zooms with target tracking, optimizing video recording of target specific speed measurements and simplifying the user experience. The result is irrefutable video evidence, confirming every speed enforcement, seat belt, mobile phone or other traffic safety infraction.

The new LaserCam unit is able to wirelessly print to a Bluetooth printer for roadside citations. User selected snapshots with on-screen data are easily printed, with one or two images per citation with GPS coordinates, posted speed limit, measured speed and target range, device serial number, operator ID and date and time stamp. The large 3.2in (8.1cm) high-resolution color display and intuitive, glove-friendly touch screen control make the LaserCam simple to operate. The large display and easy to navigate menus uses icons for ease of operation, and also supports multiple languages with a simple pull down menu, without the need for factory support to reprogram. The ergonomic and rugged design makes it a well-balanced, hand-held unit with available shoulder stock and tripod mount, if preferred. LaserCam 4 can be operated as a corded unit or with batteries.

The company’s ProLog back office system enables any agency to easily manage their video evidence, by securely storing each video, image, and metadata generated by their LaserCam 4. Scalable upgrades to ProLog, include ProLog Standard or ProLog Standard Client, which add multiple device support, administrative reporting and networking capabilities to a database. ProLog reports incorporate useful tools such as, speed versus time tracking history graph.
