Microsoft Windows 10 Universal Application for NC4 Street Smart™
The Microsoft Windows 10 Universal Application is an extension of the current NC4 Street Smart™ operating platform now accessible from mobile devices, laptops and tablets as well as large-scale displays including Microsoft’s new Surface Hub. The application allows the crime fighter to go from an 84” Microsoft Surface Hub in the roll call room to the desktop and to mobile data terminals (MDTs) in their police cruisers. While not limited to Microsoft hardware, the application is designed to take advantage of the latest advances in Windows 10 technology and the latest hardware including GPS location services and onboard cameras on mobile and tablet devices for picture, video capture and upload capabilities, giving officer’s easy-to-use, mission-critical tools for fighting crime.
Turn information into intelligence
NC4 Street Smart is a state-of-the-art tool that provides real-time data to keep officers informed and protected as they patrol our streets. The NC4 Street Smart solution provides essential facts about incidents and crime patterns in the precinct, with up-to-the-minute data feeds, maps, blogs, bulletins and case management tools that allows the officer to achieve constant situational awareness and maximizes the absorption and dissemination of tactical intelligence to and from the organization.
The Microsoft Windows 10 Universal Application provides an unparalleled platform, giving NC4 the opportunity to leverage the latest technology advances. For example, an officer can leverage speech-to-text using Microsoft’s Cortana - the world’s first truly personal digital assistant - to quickly enter information into NC4 Street Smart. Or leverage Microsoft’s Edge Web note feature, allowing the officers to take and share notes on crime maps directly on the browser or view video surveillance clips at the touch of a finger on a Microsoft Surface Hub.
Another unique feature is the utilization of Windows Continuum to provide a seamless experience across all devices. As an example, an officer can validate and create a Crime Alert Bulletin from a device in a police cruiser, alerting all other officers in the area of a crime. Then using a Windows 10 mobile device, capture pictures on-scene and note location through GPS without having to navigate on the mobile device, thus creating a quick and effective experience. NC4 Street Smart remembers where the officer left off, gaining valuable time. GPS will also provide real-time situational awareness for officers, increasing officer safety and allowing officers to focus their effort on fighting crime.
“Built with help from more than 4 million people around the world, Windows 10 marks the start of a new era of personal technology, designed to empower people to do great things,” said Rick Zak, Director of Microsoft’s Justice & Public Safety Solutions. “NC4’s new app flexes the power of Microsoft’s latest technologies to help law enforcement better fight crime and protect citizens.”
