Digital Ally Announces The EVO-HD, Its Next Generation In-Car Video Solution Product

Digital Ally’s new EVO-HD represents the industry’s only multiple HD video solution product featuring built-in patented VuLink auto-activation technology

Lenexa, KS (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, is pleased to announce the development and production release timeline of its completely new and highly advanced in-car video solution; the EVO-HD.

The EVO-HD offers a multiple HD in-car camera solution system with built-in patented VuLink auto-activation technology. The EVO-HD is built on an entirely new and highly advanced technology platform that enables many new and revolutionary features including auto activation beyond the car and body camera. No other provider can offer built-in patented VuLink auto-activation technology. The EVO-HD provides law enforcement officers with an easier to use, faster and more advanced system for capturing video evidence and uploading. Additional features include:

  • A remote cloud trigger feature which allow dispatchers to remotely start recordings;
  • Simultaneous audio/video play back;
  • Cloud Connectivity via cell modem;
  • Near real-time mapping and system health monitoring;
  • Body-camera connectivity with built-in auto activation technology; and
  • 128GB internal storage, up to 2TB external SDD storage.

The EVO-HD is designed and built on a new and highly advanced technology platform that will become the platform for a whole new family of in-car video solution products for the law enforcement and commercial markets. The innovative EVO-HD technology will replace the current in-car mirror-based systems with a miniaturized system that can be custom-mounted in the vehicle while offering numerous hardware configurations to meet the varied needs and requirements of its law enforcement and commercial customers. The EVO-HD can support up to four HD cameras, with two cameras having pre-event and evidence capture assurance (ECA) capabilities to allow agencies to review entire shifts. An internal cell modem will allow for connectivity to the VuVault cloud, powered by Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), and real time metadata when in the field.

Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally, commented “We believe our customers will embrace the highly customizable hardware and backend solutions that the EVO-HD offers with its many industry-leading features because of its new technology platform. Importantly, we are the only provider who can offer an in-car video solution that includes our built-in and patented VuLink auto-activation technology that now includes remote triggering beyond the vehicle. Digital Ally has always been the technology pioneer in our field and the EVO-HD continues our tradition.”

“Our built-in and patented VuLink auto-activation technology allows for activation of the in-car camera and body-worn camera to work seamlessly and simultaneously when triggered by events like G-Force, light bar activation, vehicle speed and many other factors. All evidence captured is protected by a chain of custody using block chain technology,” Mr. Ross concluded.

Digital Ally is currently the Plaintiff in patent infringement lawsuits against Axon Enterprises, Inc. (“Axon”) and WatchGuard Video (“Watchguard”) regarding alleged infringement by Axon and Watchguard relative to Digital Ally’s patented auto-activation technology.

Digital Ally will begin production of the EVO-HD in the first quarter of 2019 and is expected to be in full production by second quarter of 2019. Agencies can preorder the EVO-HD starting in late January, 2019.
