NICE Inform

Modern emergency centers and public safety organizations need to deal with a variety of incoming information sources, unlike in the past where there were just voice calls. Soon Next Generation emergency centers will become a reality where any person can send text messages, pictures, video clips and make other type of multimedia emergency call. NICE Inform helps emergency centers manage multimedia incident information efficiently and effectively. It captures all available data, providing all the facts as they unfold and increasing the chances that all vital evidence is available to review.

Today’s public safety answering point must be able to record and process event information in a variety of media:
audio, video, photographic, Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems, Geographic Information Systems (GIS and others).
All media which can be crucial for investigation, evaluation and training must be captured, reconstructed, organized, stored
and distributed accurately, efficiently and securely.

 

NICE Inform

 

NICE Inform fuses these different types of media into a common application and interface. It provides structure to unstructured multimedia, seamlessly combining the data for a complete, authentic, chronological audio/visual timeline and 360-degree view. 


Specifically, NICE Inform enables your command and control center to:
