Abstract: Researchers at the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) in Boulder, Colorado are trying to make sure important emergency video comes through clearly. They are in the process of developing requirements for publicsafety video applications. The institute is working with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to ensure that first-responder radio and video systems communicate clearly and accurately. The institute’s research centers on the data collected from public-safety practitioners who volunteer to participate in its subjective audio and video quality tests.
