Digital Ally Ramps Up Production of FirstVU HD Body Cameras for Law Enforcement Officers

Digital Ally Ramps Up Production of FirstVU HD Body Cameras for Law Enforcement 
Officers 
Patent-Pending VULink Feature Provides Wireless Interaction Between
In-Car Video and Body Camera Systems 
LENEXA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 10/07/13 --  Digital Ally, Inc.
(NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced
video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security
and commercial applications, today announced that it has completed
its initial production run for the FirstVU HD body camera system. The
FirstVU HD is designed to operate independently or in conjunction
with in-car video systems, thereby allowing law enforcement agencies
to more effectively collect, record and manage video documentation of
officer activities and evidence. 
The two-piece design of the FirstVU HD is revolutionary within the
rapidly growing market for body-worn cameras, and the camera head is
the smallest in the industry. This is important for law enforcement
officers because it is a product that is very lightweight and
discrete, without sacrificing functional excellence. In effect, the
camera is designed around the entire officer, not just the head or
chest areas. This allows for a variety of mounting options, including
on a weapon or a canine (K-9) companion.  
Another significant competitive advantage of the FirstVU HD system
involves the Company's new patent-pending VULink device, which allows
the FirstVU HD to wirelessly communicate and interact with in-car
video systems installed in police cruisers and other law enforcement
vehicles. The VULink provides a bi-directional "trigger" between the
officer wearing a FirstVU HD and the in-car video system. The VULink
system automatically starts recording on both systems (the FirstVU HD
and in-car video) when either system is activated, allowing the
seamless collection of time-sequenced video evidence from the vehicle
and the officer's location outside of the vehicle. If the officer
activates the FirstVU HD while away from the vehicle, VULink
wirelessly signals the in-car video system to begin recording, as
well. 
"We believe that the demand for body cameras is expanding at a rapid
rate, and with FirstVU HD, we can offer law enforcement agencies the
smallest two-piece HD body camera on the market," comme
nted Stanton
E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "When combined
with VULink, the missing piece of the body camera puzzle, our system
provides unparalleled flexibility when it comes to critical video
documentation of evidence. We believe VULink also provides compelling
advantages to motorcycle officers, marine patrol and K-9 units by
wirelessly alerting the FirstVU HD system to begin recording upon
activation of a vehicle's emergency lights or when the 'dog popper'
door is opened on a vehicle. This allows officers to perform their
duties without having to manually start their recording device. We
also expect 'cloud' storage of recorded video to be available soon." 
"We have shipped over 200 test and evaluation FirstVU HD units to an
approximately 160 potential customers, including some of the largest
metropolitan law enforcement agencies in the United States,"
continued Ross. "We are encouraged by the preliminary results of
these field tests and have been notified that Digital Ally has won a
number of large test and evaluation competitions. We are optimistic
that contract awards will follow." 
In addition to its small size and light weight, the FirstVU HD
provides 1280x720 HD quality video, has a 130-degree field of view,
contains a battery that generates full power throughout the length of
an officer's complete shift, and incorporates a tool-less mounting
system that allows the officer to effortlessly relocate the camera to
a dash mount vehicle application. Other mounting options are
available for helmet/head, motorcycle/ATV and K-9 applications.
