OVERLAND PARK, Kan. , Aug. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Digital Ally, Inc. (Nasdaq: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced digital technology products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, today announced that the Company has received its fifth order for its DVM-500 In-Car Video Rearview Mirror Systems from the West Virginia State Police. The state police agency placed orders for 124 systems in early 2007, an additional 50 systems in September 2007 , a third order for 100 systems in the first quarter of 2008 and a fourth order for 13 systems in April 2008 . The latest order, for 229 units, brings the total number of DVM-500 systems being utilized by the West Virginia State Police to 516 units.
"We are very pleased that the West Virginia State Police is so satisfied with the performance of our DVM-500 In-Car Video Rearview Mirror Systems that the agency has placed its largest order, to date, with our Company," stated Stanton E. Ross , Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "While the cumulative total of 516 units ordered by the West Virginia State Police represents the largest number of DVM-500 systems ordered by a single law enforcement agency in the United States , the number of our customers that have placed multiple follow-on orders after gaining field experience with their initial DVM-500s continues to expand."
The Company also announced that it has received its largest single order, to date, for DVF-500 Digital Video Flashlight systems. The DVF-500 is a portable digital and video recording system integrated into a high-quality, water-resistant machined aluminum law enforcement-style flashlight. It provides law enforcement officers with the ability to document the discovery and/or collection of criminal evidence on a "real time" basis and is not limited to the fixed field of vision that is characteristic of in-car video systems.
"While this order from an international customer totals only 25 units, it illustrates that law enforcement agencies are moving beyond the testing phase and into the deployment of the DVF-500 within their organizations," continued Ross. "We have always expected that broad acceptance of the DVF-500 Digital Video Flashlight would take more time than was the case with our DVM-500 In-Car Video systems, because we are defining and serving a market that did not exist prior to the introduction of our product. On the other hand, the DVF-500 provides law enforcement officers with much greater flexibility in the documentation of criminal activities regardless of their location, and we believe the long-range market potential for digital video flashlights will be substantial."
