LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2016) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) ("Digital" or the "Company"), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced the receipt of notable orders from the Santa Fe, New Mexico Police Department ("Santa Fe") for its FirstVu HD body-worn camera, DVM-800 in-car digital audio/video system, DVM-440 Motorcycle system and patented VuLink® automatic activation system.
The Santa Fe Police Department has been a Digital Ally customer since 2008 and currently deploys the DVM-500 Plus Legacy in-car digital audio/video system in addition to its new DVM-800 in-car system. The latest order involves three DVM-440 Ultra motorcycle cameras and 27 additional DVM-800 in-car digital audio/video system as part of the Department's plan to complete a full-fleet upgrade to Digital Ally's integrated solution utilizing the Company's FirstVu HD body-worn camera, DVM-800 in-car digital audio/video system, DVM-440 Ultra motorcycle camera system and patented VuLink® automatic activation system. The Santa Fe Police Department has previously completed orders in its planned upgrade including over 120 FirstVu HD body cameras and docking stations, 85 DVM-800 in-car digital video systems and approximately 40 patented VuLink® connectivity systems, which provide "hands-free activation" of the body-worn cameras and the in-car video systems in a fully integrated manner. Over 100 DVM-500 Plus legacy systems are expected to be upgraded in continuation of the planned full-fleet upgrade.
"This order illustrates an industry-wide trend in which we believe a growing number of law enforcement agencies will choose Digital Ally as their total video solution," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "Our superior products and comprehensive back office software are fully integrated, thereby truly setting us apart from our competitors. The Santa Fe Police Department is just one of many agencies that have selected Digital Ally as their 'one-stop' video solution provider. An important factor in obtaining these orders is the ability to offer our patented VuLink® auto activation system, which allows our digital audio/video cameras (such as the DVM-800) and our body-worn cameras to automatically and simultaneously start recording once either of the devices is activated. This allows multiple recordings of the same event from different perspectives in order to provide a more comprehensive recording of incidents in the field. The automatic activation technology included in our patented VuLink® has quickly become a standard requirement in many requests for proposals and has drawn attention from our competitors, who have attempted to introduce their own automatic activation technology that we believe infringes on our patent. In that regard, the Company has initiated patent infringement lawsuits against two competitors: Taser International, Inc. and Enforcement Video, LLC d/b/a WatchGuard Video."
