In your work as an EMS you well know that every minute counts. So when new tech promises superior emergency communications, you may want to look into it. A new military-grade tablet, the DT325 debuted at last month’s International Association of Chiefs of Police 2017 Conference. The company behind it says it will “ensure guaranteed compatibility and seamless interoperability for superior information capture/transfer and mobile communications.” It’s not just first responders, but anyone who works in outdoor, fast-paced conditions who have made the rugged tablet industry take off. But this specifically targets military, police, and emergency medical personnel. DT Research makes a variety of other tablets as well as medical cart computers. In the press release, the President of DT Research, Daw Tsai, said, “We saw a need in the market for a more versatile tablet that could be used in and out of vehicles. Other mountable tablets are too bulky and do not consider how the tablets will be used in real-world situations. Our vehicle mount tablet solution mirrors the unique features needed in first responder, law enforcement, and field service environments.”

Features of the DT325T

One of the new DT325T’s time-saving features is Windows® HELLO Face Authentication. This technology is considered superior to logging in with a fingerprint in challenging environments. Other features include:

  • A 12.5 inch Full HD display
  • Vehicle Mount Cradle with Fold-up Keyboard –  This cradle can protect the screen and folds for more space in the vehicle. Plus, you can use the tablet outside the vehicle.
  • Dual Pass-through Antenna – The antenna includes 4G LTE and GPS communications.
  • High-Performance CPU – It uses a Quad Core processor from Intel. That means it can handle multitasking with greater speed and less battery drain.
  • 4K Ultra HD Display – The touchscreen offers extremely sharp images.

Considering what we know so far, this tablet is one for first responders to consider. So what do you think? Would you try it out to improve your emergency communications? PHOTO: Julie McMurry / CC0 Public Domain
