Video: Bringing us together

Video just keeps getting cooler. Here's an article about a digital surveillance company called ICOP that just released a product called ICOP LIVE, which pushes live video streams to responder vehicles and/or to any authorized viewer "without special viewing software." I have a couple calls out and I'm still not sure whether or not this company works with private security companies/monitoring stations, but it seems like a useful technology to incorporate into the security world. I realize that video really isn't all that prevalent in many monitoring stations yet, but the prospect of dispatching an alarm and then sending the responding officer live video of the scene sounds like technology worth checking out. Plus, it might actually help improve the relationship between cops and private security. Maybe.
