Digital Ally, Inc., has announced Safariland’s initial order for 200 VuLink patented automatic recording systems for Vievu body-worn camera systems. The VuLink will allow Vievu’s cameras to receive wireless triggers from emergency lights, speed thresholds, or even from a Digital Ally in-car video system to automatically activate a recording without requiring officers to manually start the recording. The units will be shipped this quarter.
Upon returning from the International Association of Chiefs of Police 2017 Conference (IACP), both companies commented on their thoughts regarding the recent agreement. “The response at IACP was strong, and a clear indication of the industry’s anticipation for the solutions this distribution agreement provides,” said Sean McCarthy who leads Vievu and Safariland’s wearable technology platform. "With this initial order we are thrilled to collaborate with Digital Ally to provide the law enforcement community with our combined industry-leading innovations of the LE4 and LE5 body-worn cameras connecting with the VuLink system.”
Last week, Digital Ally announced a supply agreement with Safariland that provides Vievu the exclusive rights to integrate the VuLink system with Vievu body cameras. “We could feel the industry’s excitement surrounding this relationship at IACP. We are confident that this agreement will be advantageous for both companies as we move forward with our exclusive agreement,” said Stanton Ross, CEO of Digital Ally. This agreement is good through 2020 as long as minimal purchase requirements are met, and can be extended upon mutual agreement. Digital Ally will also continue to market the VuLink system with its FirstVu HD body camera series and complete line of in-car video systems.
