Viridian Weapon Technologies has introduced the FACT Duty WMC weapon-mounted camera.

The FACT Duty WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. The weapon-mounted camera provides a clear view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras.

Viridian’s proprietary Instant-On technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment, Viridian says.
