Patent Office Grants Digital Ally Two New Camera Patents
LENEXA, Kansas, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Ally, Inc. (Nasdaq: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, is pleased to announce a new development from the United States Patent Office in its continued prosecution of critical patents for the law enforcement community. The Patent Office has granted Digital Ally two new patents: U.S. Patent Nos. 10,074,394 (“the ‘394 Patent”) and 10,075,681 (“the ‘681 Patent”). These patents will be critical for assisting Law Enforcement Officers capture and collect evidence.
The ‘394 Patent is a continuation of the original VuLink auto-activation patents that currently are being asserted against Axon Enterprise Inc. (“Axon,” formerly TASER) and Enforcement Video, LLC (d/b/a WatchGuard Video). The ‘394 Patent broadens Digital’s auto-activation patent portfolio by providing more functionality relating to auto-activation, including triggering camera operation when a law enforcement officer exits the vehicle.
The ‘681 Patent is the first patent to issue in a new family of inventions from Digital. The ‘681 Patent is directed to forward and rearward cameras that are mounted in a manner so the law enforcement officer can rotate and point them where necessary. For example, a point-of-view camera including both a forward and rearward camera view mounted to the officer’s head also allows the officer to adjust the recording angle of the cameras as the situation dictates.
“We are excited that the Patent Office continues to recognize the pioneering work of our engineering team at Digital. We have always prided ourselves on our ability to out-innovate even our largest competitors,” said Digital Ally’s CEO, Stanton E. Ross. “These patents further cement Digital as one of the pioneering inventors in the body worn camera space for law enforcement. And the ‘394 Patent, which was granted after the Patent Office inspected Axon’s alleged prior art, further validates Digital as the pioneering inventor of auto-activation for body worn cameras,” concluded Ross.
