LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 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 that it has commenced shipments of its DVM-800HD in-car video system, the first in-car video system on the market to provide full HD quality.
"Digital Ally has always focused on providing the most innovative and cutting-edge products on the market," said Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally, Inc. "We are especially excited about the DVM-800HD because we feel it truly sets itself apart from other competitive products for its features, capabilities and value it provides. In addition to offering the DVM-800HD at industry leading pricing, we also make available a five-year advanced exchange warranty," Ross continued. "As orders begin to ship, we see potential for customers to begin bundling the DVM-800HD with our patented VuLink® technology, which allows for simultaneous 'hands free' auto-activation and seamless integration of our in-car video systems and FirstVu HD body-worn cameras," concluded Ross.
The DVM-800HD is the new standard in high definition 1080p in-car video systems for law enforcement applications. The DVM-800HD records at full 1080p HD, while other competitive systems capture only D1 (SD) or 720p (HD) resolution. This feature allows law enforcement to capture five times more detailed video compared to D1 resolution and two times more detailed video compared to the older technology, first generation 720p HD systems. DVM-800HD system captures the smallest of details by utilizing a ten times zoom 1080p camera. The DVM-800HD is the highest quality in-car camera system available on the market, taking advantage of the latest optics on the market with an F1.8 aperture, 67-degree field of view and image sensor with minimum .03 lux and 120db WDR.
The big challenge with recording at full 1080p HD video has been the significant increase in the size and cost of storage, which is typically five times the size/cost of standard definition. With this limitation in mind, the DVM-800HD was designed to efficiently handle the additional video storage volume without creating the historical size/cost increase compared to standard definition, despite creating crystal-clear HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels that results in recordings with additional file size. Taking advantage of the latest video compression technologies, combining multiple bit rates from additional cameras allows the system to use far less than the storage requires for a standard definition video system, while still on the highest quality settings. Typical full HD systems without the latest video compression technology would require five times the storage capacity. Therefore, Digital Ally's new DVM-800HD provides unparalleled performance and features at an unmatched competitive and efficient all in cost.
In addition to the innovative and advanced HD camera and internal storage technology, Digital Ally has revamped and optimized the operating components of the DVM-800HD system to increase its wireless performance over a law enforcement department's existing wireless infrastructure or uploading via its cell network by up to three times the speed of the current DVM-800.
An increased storage capacity of 256GB for Digital Ally's Evidence Capture Assurance™ (ECA) now comes standard on the DVM-800HD. This increase in storage capacity allows the Company's ECA™ system to constantly record and store recorded triggered events, all for automated wireless uploading after the event. The DVM-800HD is the Company's first system to provide the total end-to-end video solution in the cloud. Users will have cloud based access to features such as case management and video redaction for DVM-800HD, FirstVu HD and VuLink® products.
