In Car Video Just Keeps Getting Better

Police and Law Enforcement News

It's exciting to watch the constant advances in the 'in car video' police dash cam arena.

The next generation of digital tape in-car video systems has been released by Decatur Electronics to provide a cost-effective alternative for law enforcement agencies demanding high quality but not high price.


The company’s Gemini Plus II™ in-car video system uses the SONY Digital 8™ recorder to produce from 90 to 135 minutes of high-resolution recordings. The Gemini Plus II combines this improved tape clarity with enhanced audio quality for an industry benchmark in evidentiary documenting recordings. The system can be mounted in vehicles either overhead or in a two-piece console mounting and is easily installed in under 45 minutes.

Decatur introduced the Gemini Plus™ line of in-car video tape record systems in 2002 and has placed more than 7,500 units in small and large police departments across the United States. In addition to its newest Gemini Plus II system, the company offers true hard drive digital with its Gemini Digital line of in-car video.

“Our Gemini Plus II meets the needs of departments wanting high quality video without the expense of moving to the next tier of true digital,” said Greg Roberts, Decatur’s sales manager. “This allows departments to easily upgrade and improve their Gemini Plus systems or to move to a cost effective but high-quality system.”

Decatur Electronics has served the public safety sector for more than 50 years and was the first manufacturer of law enforcement radars. It also carries a full line of speed measurement, message trailers and a complete line of in-car video systems.

In addition to the trusted quality and service programs of Decatur Electronics, the Gemini Plus II™ system features:

  • · Light Indicator – initiates recording when emergency lights are engaged

  • · Brake Indicator – records BRK on video, offering brake history

  • · Radar Overlay – allows the Gemini Plus II to interface seamlessly with the Genesis I™ or Genesis II Select™ radar units to display speeds.

  • · Active Matrix Color Monitor – easy event viewing

  • · Wireless Audio – convenient wireless mounting options

  • · Record Over Protect – “bulletproof” previous recording protection

Founded in the early 1950s, Decatur Electronics is headquartered in Decatur, IL. The company operates an engineering technology facility in Ft. Collins, Colorado and a high tech vehicle outfitting division, ThunderWorks Mobile Engineering, in Santee, CA. The company manufactures equipment for use primarily in law enforcement, but also makes speed measurement equipment for sports, industrial applications and OEM products for companies, including Harley-Davidson, Polaris and Jugs.
