TASER to Acquire MediaSolv to Broaden Digital Evidence Management Solutions

May 05, 2015  | 

TASER International today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire MediaSolv Solutions Corp., a leading solution for interview room video, CCTV, in-car, and on premises digital evidence management. MediaSolv's product suite will be connected to TASER's Axon and Evidence.com platform, further enabling law enforcement to unify existing silos of digital media and evidence into a seamless workflow from capture to the courtroom. The combination will offer MediaSolv's existing customers enhanced management, storage, and sharing capabilities through the Evidence.com cloud platform, while simultaneously enhancing and expanding TASER's existing portfolio of products and services.

Since 2009, MediaSolv has focused on delivering an integrated product suite, expanding its capabilities in 2011 with the acquisition of Insight Video Net—the core team behind the Panasonic Arbitrator in-car video system. An established leader, MediaSolv delivers an integrated digital evidence management software product for law enforcement that handles evidence from interview rooms, surveillance cameras and provides support for Panasonic's Arbitrator in-car video. Current customers include the Chicago Police Department, Philadelphia Police Department, Toronto Police Services, among others. In total, Mediasolv's customers include an additional 7 major cities, bringing the total number of major city agencies on TASER's digital platform to 23.

The acquisition will expand on TASER's investment in digital evidence management, providing existing and new customers a cloud-connected pathway for data siloed across their agency, including CCTV, in-car video, interview room video, digital images, and more. The MediaSolv product line immediately expands both the near and long term growth opportunities for the Evidence.com platform.  It provides law enforcement officials comprehensive tools and resources for managing all of their digital evidence in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

"MediaSolv and TASER share the vision of delivering innovative products to our customers," said Jim Weaver, president and CEO of MediaSolv. "We're excited to join the TASER team so we can partner together to solve the challenges agencies face when managing their digital evidence." 

"Jim and the MediaSolv team have built something greatly admired by their customers," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. "Together, we will accelerate our efforts to deliver the leading solution for end-to-end digital evidence management for law enforcement. Our shared customer passion underscores our commitment and we're looking forward to welcoming the MediaSolv team to TASER."
