NEW YORK, Apr. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --DirectView Holdings, Inc. (OTC:DIRV) ("DirectView" or the "Company"), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, announced its agreement with xG Technology, Inc. ("xG") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, to integrate DirectView's body-worn camera with xG's xMax private mobile broadband technology.
The proprietary integrated solution (code named the "DVXG-1000") is scheduled to be launched in the third quarter of 2015. The DVXG-1000 will consolidate the advanced features and functionality of DirectView's body-worn camera with the private, secure, high-performance communications capabilities of xG's xMax. Both companies intend to initially focus joint marketing efforts toward the law enforcement, military, government, education and real estate security markets. The DVXG-1000 will have a number of state of the art features including high capacity streaming video, Bluetooth®, GPS, push to talk, WIFI/4G LTE, and imbedded biometric access.
With a number of recent high-profile law enforcement incidents bringing national attention to the need for the use of body-worn cameras by public safety and police officers, both companies see a rapidly increasing market for real-time video access to personnel in security related operations. The use of body worn cameras has also become a high profile topic of political debate. President Obama has recently proposed federal spending of $75 million (as part a broader community policing initiative) to help pay for 50,000 body-worn law enforcement cameras. Additionally, on April 29th, Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton advocated that all police departments in the country have body cameras to record interactions between officers on patrol and suspects.
Roger Ralston, CEO and Board Chairman of DirectView, said, "We are excited to partner with xG and its xMax technology as we work towards the launch of this next generation law enforcement solution. xMax's native IP design will enable us to seamlessly integrate our cutting edge body camera to offer a secure, "always on" solution to support high-reliability streaming video transmissions. Together, we will offer a comprehensive, market-leading solution to law enforcement, and eventually, other sectors that require mission essential security applications."
George Schmitt, CEO and Board Chairman of xG Technology, said, "We are pleased to enter into this agreement with DirectView. The ability of our technology to deliver secure and resilient communications in fluid and unpredictable situations is an excellent complement to their state-of-the-art body camera hardware. We expect that the market for such devices will have outstanding potential, and we look forward to working closely with DirectView to bring a feature-rich, tightly integrated solution to law enforcement markets and beyond."
