NEW YORK, September 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The evaluation is part of COPsync's plan to market body-worn cameras to its current installed base of approximately 670 law enforcement agencies in 14 states
DirectView Holdings, Inc. (DIRV) ("DirectView" or the "Company"), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, today announced that its body-worn cameras have been chosen for evaluation by COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), a Texas based operator of the nation's only law enforcement real-time, information sharing network.
The evaluation of several vendors is part of COPsync's plan to become a reseller of body-worn cameras to market to its growing customer base of law enforcement agencies across the nation. COPsync also currently manufactures and sells VidTac™, a software-driven, in-car, law enforcement video system and plans for the video footage captured by the body-worn camera it selects to be integrated with the video footage captured by the VidTac in-car video system. The VidTac video system software operates on the in-vehicle computers used by patrol officers, rather than the separate hardware device used by traditional hardware-centric video systems making them a more cost effective solution for law enforcement agencies.
Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync commented, "A third party body-worn camera is a natural extension of the Company's in-car law enforcement video system. Offering a third-party body camera enables COPsync to participate in this growing market without incurring any material development expense. These body-worn cameras can be sold to the Company's current installed base of approximately 670 law enforcement agencies in 14 states."
Roger Ralston, CEO and Chairman of DirectView, stated "We are very pleased to have been chosen by the team at COPsync for its body-worn camera evaluation. They have an outstanding reputation with the law enforcement community and we are excited at the opportunity for COPsync to become a potential reselling partner of DirectView. We believe our products fit right in line with their philosophy as we deliver a wide array of functionality at a very competitive price and we look forward to working with them during this evaluation period and beyond."
