Digital Ally Introduces DVM-100 In-Car Video System

Lowest-Priced Complete Digital In-Car Video System on the Market Targets Law Enforcement Agencies Facing Budget Constraints

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - At its annual shareholders' meeting last week, Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, introduced the Company's newest in-car video system. The DVM-100 is designed specifically for those law enforcement agencies that need a high quality digital in-car video system, but are budget-constrained due to reduced tax revenues at the state, county and/or municipal level.

The complete DVM-100 system is priced at only $1,895, including the Company's Video Manager II back office software and a one-year warranty. "We believe this is the lowest-priced digital in-car video system currently on the market that is compatible with the needs of law enforcement agencies," noted Ken McCoy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Digital Ally, Inc. "The DVM-100 offers customers a complete digital in-car video system that is incorporated into a rear view mirror. This is in keeping with the Company's DVM-750 and DVM-500 Plus systems that have been installed in law enforcement vehicle fleets throughout the world."

"We recognize how difficult it has been for some departments to afford in-car video systems, or as many as they need, during a period of declining tax revenues," stated Stanton E. Ross, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "We often encounter departments with limited budgets that are unable to purchase in-car video systems that can provide protection for law enforcement officers and citizens while documenting important criminal evidence. The DVM-100 allows budget-constrained and smaller domestic agencies to install in-car video systems that are consistent with their capital budgets, while also addressing the many requests we have received from international countries for a lower-cost system."

Although the DVM-100 does not have all the features of the DVM-750 and DVM-500 Plus, it is easy to operate and offers high quality video with H.264 Codec at 30 frames per second, pre-event recording, covert mode, metadata, a remote wireless microphone, an integrated microphone for recording inside the vehicle, a USB or removable SD card for downloading, back office software, and a one-year parts and labor warranty. The Company plans to begin selling the DVM-100 in the third quarter of 2011.

Also at the shareholders' meeting, the Company announced a new feature for its FirstVU portable digital video system. The FirstVu, which was designed to be worn by law enforcement officers or mounted to motorcycles, ATVs, or cars, can now be partnered with a remote wireless microphone. This allows law enforcement officers to capture an entire scene on video from their vehicles, while allowing the officer to send audio recordings back to the FirstVU from distances as great as 1,000 feet. "We believe this added feature will enhance the value of FirstVU as the most portable, versatile digital video system available by offering, in addition to remote audio recording, an integrated monitor, a menu for entering metadata, password protection, and a robust back office software package for securely storing, archiving and downloading video and audio," added McCoy.
