2018 DHS S&T Video Quality in Public Safety Workshop, Scheduled for May 9-10, 2018 in Albuquerque, NM
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (OIC) is pleased to announce its annual Video Quality in Public Safety (VQiPS) Workshop, scheduled for May 9–10, 2018 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We invite you to attend to learn from panel speakers and attendees about public safety video use cases and applications from across the country.
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Wednesday, May 9 – Thursday, May 10, 2018
Who should attend:
Public safety (e.g., law enforcement, fire response, emergency medical services), representatives from standards development organizations, industry and federal partners with an interest in video applications for first responders.  This includes but is not limited to:  cameras, body worn cameras, video software, analytics, video networks, system design, facial recognition, and data communications.
What is VQiPS:
First responders rely heavily on video technology to increase their situational awareness while onsite at an incident, monitoring an incident from afar or conducting day-to-day response.  As video technology has evolved, equipment options have become increasingly complex.  The VQiPS Initiative provides information and support to first responders so they can articulate their own video quality needs and ultimately buy the best products to fit those needs.  VQiPS empowers practitioners with the tools and information needed to purchase and deploy the appropriate video technology solutions to support their mission.  Recent knowledge products include Policy Considerations for Video in Public Safety which assists practitioners by providing guidance for government agencies crafting written policies and procedures for the use of video in a variety of public safety applications.  In addition, the Digital Video Quality Handbook was recently updated to account for the latest in video standards development.
