Digital Ally Developing Glasses-Mounted Bullet Camera For Police Officers

Digital Ally, Inc. is responsible for the development, manufacturing and marketing of advanced video surveillance products specifically for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications and, a couple of months ago, announced that it would introduce a bullet camera option for its FirstVu HD officer-worn video system.

According to a statement from CEO of Digital Ally Stanton E. Ross, “While the wide-angle lens of our torso-mounted camera allows for a comprehensive view of an incident, the bullet camera provides greater insight into where an officer was specifically looking during events in the field. In this respect, the bullet camera is similar to our FirstVu HD’s helmet mount, but it can be attached to a pair of glasses or an officer’s hat.”

Ross went on to say, “The new bullet camera provides another option in the extensive array of possible mounting locations for our FirstVu HD body camera system, which will now be able to meet the needs of law enforcement agencies regardless of their specific body-worn camera policies. Our bullet camera is smaller and lighter than other eyeglass-mounted options currently on the market and is therefore more comfortable to wear.”

“The bullet camera also works with our patented VuLink connectivity device,” Ross continued, “which allows hands-free activation for the body camera system, thereby enhancing the safety of officers in the field and eliminating distractions that can result from having to manually turn on some of our competitors’ body cameras.”

In closing, Ross noted, “Currently, over 1,300 law enforcement agencies/departments are either using or evaluating our FirstVu HD body camera system. We firmly believe that state, county and city police departments should consider the value proposition of the FirstVu HD system, and our other video solutions, as part of their due diligence regarding options available in the marketplace.”

Specifications of the bullet camera include:

  • 130º wide-angle field of view
  • Ability to capture Officer’s field of view
  • .08 Lux low-light sensitivity
  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) recording
  • 720p HD resolution
  • Advanced H.264 compression

Digital Ally’s FirstVu HD is currently the most technically advanced officer-worn body camera system on the market and has features that include:

  • Turns on automatically with emergency lights in cruiser
  • Eliminates distractions with having to manually turn on camera
  • Can activate in-car video system within a 200-foot range
  • Longer pre-event recording time
  • Rechargeable battery with 2.5 day lifespan
  • User replaceable battery
  • Larger memory for increased recording
  • Cloud and local storage
  • Free app to add notes, GPS and event tagging, incident recordings, ability to display live view or playback recordings, secure access to camera controls, etc…

Cameras are paramount in a lot of legal disputes as they are the perfect eye witness. Cameras are mounted in police cruisers for recording things like traffic stops and other incidents and are used as evidence frequently. A body-mounted or glasses-mounted bullet camera allows for more evidence to be gathered, especially if an officer has to step away from his cruiser. This could also be paramount in cases such as the one in Ferguson, Missouri where there are two very different sides to events that unfolded.
