Move the ON/OFF switch on the camera to the ON position.
With the camera turned on, the Axon system is in the BUFFERING mode. When BUFFERING begins:
- The Operation LED on the camera will blink green.
- The camera will be capturing video but no audio, and will not record to permanent memory while in BUFFERING mode.
- Buffered video duration is up to 30 seconds (00:00:30).
When you activate the EVENT mode, the buffered video (not audio) captured directly before the event, up to 30 seconds, will be saved and attached to the event in permanent memory. This feature is intended to capture the video of an incident just before your activation of EVENT mode.
Because the system does not capture audio in BUFFERING mode, the first 30 seconds of a recorded event will be video-only. Buffering mode starts only after the Axon Body camera is turned on. The system does not record when the camera is turned off.
Note: An agency can turn off the BUFFERING mode. If your agency has deactivated the BUFFERING mode, your Axon system will operate the same way as described in this manual, but the camera will not record anything until you double-press the EVENT button.
