The Axon Body 3 camera can be connected to a laptop or computer with Axon View XL operating in Standalone Mode to allow priority upload of videos from the camera to Axon Evidence.com.
In Standalone Mode, Axon View XL lets users view recorded videos, add metadata to videos and upload camera videos to Axon Evidence.com.
The Axon Body 3 camera is connected to the laptop or computer with a USB A to USB C cable and uses the Axon View XL standalone mode. You can request a compatible cable from your Axon Representative.
Note: When connected to View XL an Axon Body 3 camera can be charged. However, Axon recommends that you regularly place you Axon Body 3 camera in an Axon Body 3 Dock to ensure that the camera has the correct time synchronization and latest firmware updates.
Videos that are uploaded from an Axon Body 3 camera are not deleted from the camera by Axon View XL. When the camera is placed in a dock, the video will upload again to Axon Evidence.com resulting in two videos. Because each video is managed separately after the first is uploaded by Axon View XL, the videos may have different audit trails.
Axon recommends that agencies limit the number of videos uploaded from Axon Body 3 cameras using Axon View XL until the issue is corrected. This issue is a priority and will be corrected with a future update.
When searching in Axon Evidence.com, both videos of the incident will appear in search results. Users assigned to Pro roles can also use Multicam playback to surface both videos to ensure they are both found.
Because there are two videos of the incident in Axon Evidence.com and the videos may have different audit trails, agencies should have a policy for retention and deletion of these videos.
