TASER Disrupts On-Officer Video Market With AXON Body
The Best Body Camera at a Disruptive Price of $299
SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/13 -- TASER (NASDAQ: TASR)
today revealed the newest addition to its family of on-officer video
cameras. The AXON body(TM) camera provides a convenient option for
officers who are looking for world-class functionality in a simple
design. At just $299, agencies with budget restrictions can now
afford top-tier video capability.
"We have been very happy with the existing AXON flex and EVIDENCE.com
solution during the last two years," said Lt. Tom Peterson,
Winston-Salem Police Department. "We look forward to exploring AXON
body as a complement to AXON flex."
TASER, the market leader in on-officer cameras, created the new AXON
body for agencies that value a simpler camera option at a lower price
point. The sleek design, wide-angle lens, and automated workflows
allow for wearability and easy deployment.
"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-$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.
"With AXON body, our strategy is simple: 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,"
Features of the AXON body system:
-- Pre-event buffer captures 30-second video before activation
-- Full shift 12+ hour battery / record time
