VIDMIC was founded in 2001 and was the first company in the United States to bring to market an officer-worn video system. With thousands of units used by first responders, patrolmen, soldiers, and others in the field, it continues to lead the industry today.
The company has also initiated a new channel partner program to provide better local customer support for VIDMIC clients. VIDMIC will launch a certification program to ensure its channel partners will be able to provide a broad depth of service for clients.
