Chapter 1: Introduction
Axon Capture is a mobile application (app) that allows you to perform the following actions:
• Capture audio, video, and photo evidence.
• Categorize files with a title, case ID, and a retention category.
• Enable the application to add geolocation metadata to evidence files automatically.
• Upload audio, video, and photo evidence captured with the application or saved on the mobile
device to your Evidence.com agency, using either a cellular data connection or Wi-Fi Internet connection.
Recorded evidence is stored on the mobile device. A setting within Axon Capture allows you to configure the application to delete evidence from the mobile device after it has uploaded successfully to
Evidence.com.
Notes:
• Axon Capture does not work with Evidence.com LITE accounts.
• Axon Capture cannot interact with Axon cameras. Axon View, a different application by TASER, does
enable you to view and add metadata to video evidence files recorded on an Axon camera. For
more information, see www.axon.io/products/view.
• Photos taken with another application can be imported into Axon Capture. However, Axon Capture
cannot import or otherwise work with audio and video files recorded by other applications. Use
Axon Capture for any video and audio recording you intend to use with the Axon Capture application.
• If you experience issues with Axon Capture or have any feedback, please contact TASER Customer
Service (evidencehelp@taser.com).

add text after the prefix. If necessary, you can also edit the prefix text.
For information about specifying an ID prefix, see ID Prefix.

is not available when you bulk annotate more than one evidence file.
