LEAWOOD, Kan., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Digital Ally, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, today disclosed a number of new features and enhancements for its advanced surveillance technology that will be on display in its booth (#1843) at the 114th Annual Association of Chiefs of Police Conference. The conference will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans , Louisiana, October 14-16, 2007. The new features are briefly described below.
Live Streaming Video
Digital Ally has expanded the functionality of its popular DVM-500 Digital In-Car Video System Integrated into a Rearview Mirror by allowing police officers in the field to transmit live streaming video to headquarters. Streaming video can be transmitted using wide-area network Wi-Fi deployment, satellite, or cellular networks.
The live streaming video solution, powered by Iveda Solutions, utilizes IP-centric infrastructure with a highly-secure data center that has redundant bandwidth and power. The data center can host and broadcast video for law enforcement agencies, while allowing camera access by multiple users without compromising video image quality.
"This solution will allow the DVM-500 to transmit live video to headquarters and record the video at the same time," noted Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "It will provide law enforcement personnel with more effective tools for situation analysis by allowing them to view secure real-time video from the field using a web browser, without the need for proprietary equipment or software. Such technology integration will allow for true centralized real-time access to critical information."
"Live streaming video becomes a 'virtual partner' for police officers when they are on duty," continued Ross. "Headquarters personnel can now view video from every DVM in the field and, if necessary, other officers and first responders can simultaneously access the same video from their mobile data terminals. Faster back-up response is facilitated by this technology, which extends the support of headquarters and other first responders when necessary."
Digital Ally's new wireless download feature will also be introduced at the IACP Conference. The complete integrated wireless download solution requires no laptop or Mobile Data Computer (MDC) interface in the vehicle. Instead, video images and audio recordings are wirelessly transmitted directly from the DVM-500 to a network server at police headquarters if the vehicle is within range of a certified Wi-Fi "hotspot". Following the secure transfer and verification of digital files to headquarters, such files are automatically removed from the solid state memory in the DVM unit.
If the connection to the network is lost, or the transfer is interrupted for any reason, files will be saved and the software will resume the transfer when a connection to the network is re-established. All file transfers are logged for a complete audit trail to ensure the integrity of the audio and video evidence. After successful transfer of the files from the DVM-500 to the designated computer, the files are automatically uploaded into VideoManager.
Digital Ally will introduce its new VideoManager Server -- a secure centralized video management system - at the IACP Conference.
The VideoManager Server has all the same features and functions of the stand-alone version of VideoManager currently available, but it will allow multiple user access to video files, fully protected by individual user passwords and permission protocols. By accessing the secure and reliable enterprise-level SQL server database, authorized headquarters personnel can view, upload, playback, search and manage video files from any networked computer that has proper access rights.
