“The Toughbook Arbitrator 360° has given us a true end-to-end solution for not just recording video, but storing, organizing and accessing video as well. In addition, we quickly realized the benefits of deploying multiple in-car cameras by disproving an internal affairs complaint using evidence captured on a rear-facing camera. From our perspective, a room full of DVDs is no better than a room full of VHS tapes, so the ability to manage and transfer all video evidence digitally is a huge bonus. Our patrol officers found the Arbitrator 360° software interface very easy to use, and were up and running with very minimal training. We value the long-term presence and stability Panasonic has demonstrated in public safety.”
--Sergeant Todd Beam,
Lincoln Police Department (NE)
“One of the biggest advantages I see is being able to utilize this technology with the courts.”

“The Arbitrator system has given us a decreased time in court, the ability to gather evidence in a much clearer fashion than before, ease of use and a high comfort level with our officers to use it.”
City of Lewisville Police Dept. (TX)
“It's an excellent tool for catching evidence on video.”
Sacramento County Sheriffs Dept.
Toughbook® Arbitrator 360°™ provides solid-state digital recording with low light imaging and a high capacity SD card (SDHC) video and audio recorder. Integrating seamlessly with Toughbook mobile computers, the Toughbook Arbitrator is a complete mobile video solution, taking evidence capture and security to the next level.
Sacramento County Sheriff's Department Police Department
As a result of an unwitnessed officer fatality, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department decided to invest in a mobile digital video system that would enable them to capture evidence and protect officers in the field. The department outfitted all 260 sheriff vehicles with the Toughbook Arbitrator, giving officers increased security, eye-witness corroboration and peace of mind. Using cutting edge technology, the
Toughbook Arbitrator 360°
automatically records video during traffic stops and high-speed chases. Sacramento County also employs the Arbitrator's wireless microphone, which clips to the officer's belt and records sound up to a distance of 1000 feet from the squad car. Once the incident is captured, the footage is automatically uploaded to a secure server, making the recordings secure and tamper-proof while ensuring the submission of reliable courtroom evidence.
The Toughbook ROI Evaluator
The Toughbook ROI Evaluator is an application that objectively analyzes the costs/benefits of mobile computing solutions from different vendors. This vendor-neutral application is designed to help purchasing managers choose a solution that provides the best ROI (Return On Investment) and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) based on their unique business needs. It performs a detailed cost analysis of up-front purchase cost, repair expenditures and downtime, specific product features, value of ownership, disposal, and much more.
This objective third-party interactive tool was built to answer the most critical questions asked by customers:
- What will it cost to buy?
- What will it cost to own?
- What will it cost to deploy and decommission?
- What value will be created for the organization?
The reports that are generated can be replicated, modified or entirely changed without any input from Panasonic, using Microsoft Excel.
