LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - Digital Ally, Inc. (
The Evansville police department evaluated all of the major body cameras on the market during a 60-day testing period before selecting Digital Ally's FirstVU HD for its officers. Testing included evaluation of product durability, versatility, ease of use, battery life, video and sound quality, upload and download speeds, and the data storage requirements for a typical officer's daily shift.
"We have sold over 350 FirstVU HD units, including the Evansville order, since the new body camera was officially launched in July 2013, and the FirstVU HD is being tested and evaluated against competitive products by over 150 law enforcement agencies," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "These test and evaluation programs are typically one to three months in duration, and based on an analysis of completed test and evaluation programs, our FirstVU HD has emerged as the top-rated system by a clear majority of the agencies performing the evaluations. We have averaged approximately 20 new police agencies initiating test and evaluation programs per week, with active and completed test and evaluation projects representing potential sales of over 4,600 units at the present time. However, the test and evaluation programs do not always translate into immediate orders, because agencies must follow requisition procedures, secure appropriate approvals, and ascertain that funding is available, which is never assured, before actually placing the orders."
"Digital Ally recently participated in the International Chiefs of Police (IACP) show in Philadelphia, where interest in our FirstVU HD was very strong. The Company is actively following up with the more than 900 police agencies that indicated an interest in the FirstVU HD at the show," concluded Ross.
