TASER International has developed a low-cost on-body video system for law enforcement agencies that can't afford the company's high-end, point-of-view Axon Flex on-officer video system. The TASER Axon Body system lists for $299 per unit.

Despite its low price point, the Axon Body offers feature-rich performance in a compact wearable video system. Features include a 30-second pre-event buffer, 12-hour record time, 130-degree wide-angle lens, low-light recording, automatic uploading of videos to Evidence.com, tamper-proof recording. live stream of review video over secure Bluetooth to smartphones with Axon Mobile App, and multiple mounting options: chest, belt, or in-car.

"Axon Body is a truly disruptive product, offering best-in-class features at a fraction of the price of competitive products," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. "For entry level users looking for simplicity at the lowest price, the Axon Body delivers a ruggedized video option for less than $300. Less capable police body cameras are typically priced in the $700 to $900 range."

"With the new Axon Body and our flagship AXON Flex point-of-view system, we now have a product lineup that includes a range from best price to highest performance," Smith added.

Smith said that TASER's strategy for the Axon Body was to offer a high-quality video system that almost any agency could afford. "We created a camera that is so compelling, at such an aggressive price that every agency can afford to protect their officers. For only $299, every officer can defend themselves from unfounded complaints while preserving an indisputable record of the events they encounter every day," Smith said.

From the website it does not seem large or heavy: 3.3''x2.6''x.8'', less than a deck of cards for sure. When adrenaline kicks in during a stressful situation you will want the easy to find button to record the event too!

I've been retired for 5 yrs. I led my agency in adopting in-car system. The KEY feature we used to get that product approved by my city council was what they're calling "buffering." This is amazing that this technology can now be in something as small as a badge. I would have killed for this.
