Digital Ally Receives Initial DVM-250 Order From Kansas City Transportation Group

Company Targets 5,000+ Vehicles Operated by Affiliates of Veolia Transportation

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2013) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced that it has received an initial order for 100 DVM-250 Video Event Recorders from Kansas City Transportation Group ("KCTG"). Operating under the names "Yellow Cab", "10/10 Taxi", and "Super Shuttle", KCTG manages a fleet of over 400 transportation vehicles in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

KCTG is part of the transportation division of Veolia Transportation ("Veolia"), the largest non-governmental provider of transit services in North America, with over 5,000 vehicles, 21,000 employees in the United States and Canada, and annual revenue approaching $1 billion. Veolia, which manages many modes of public transit, provides transportation by charter bus, commuter rail, paratransit, private sedan, taxi and airport shuttle services. It is the North American business unit of Veolia Transdev, a global provider of public transportation solutions that is partly owned by Caisse des Depots, a leading French financial institution.

"Our immediate objective is to become the preferred provider of event recording solutions to the 400-plus vehicles that comprise KCTG's fleet in the Kansas City area, and thus we view this initial 100-unit order as a 'first step' in an expanding relationship with a regional leader in public and private transportation," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "The initial installation of 100 DVM-250 event recorders, along with the infrastructure to wirelessly move video for all of KCTG's vehicles, should be completed by January 1, 2014."

"Longer-term, we hope to expand our relationship to include Veolia Transportation affiliates in other North American cities. We currently have pilot programs underway in four U.S. cities for other Veolia divisions that involve fleets totaling well over 1,500 vehicles."

"We believe that KCTG understands the enhanced safety statistical value of having video event recorders in its vehicle fleet, but it wanted a solution that did not involve the payment of recurring monthly fees, which are charged by a number of our competitors," continued Ross. "We offered the customer a more cost-effective, turn-key solution that includes the in-vehicle recorders, associated infrastructure and video archiving software systems, while eliminating the need for monthly fees."

"We believe Veolia represents a 'game-changer' for our commercial group that affirms our business model for the event recorder market. The deployment of our DVM-250 within the Veolia organization represents a multi-year opportunity. It provides our Company with an 'anchor' customer that should allow us to invest additional resources to assure that our hardware and back office solutions for the commercial fleet market are state-of-the-art in performance and reliability. The Veolia opportunity could eventually represent the single largest systems deployment in Digital Ally's history," concluded Ross.
