Viridian® INSTANT-ON® Weapon-Mounted Technology Provides True Automation; Hundreds of Holster Offerings with Technology

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – March 27, 2019 – Viridian Weapon Technologies, leader in innovative weapon-mounted accessories, offers a full line of highly advanced laser sights, tactical lights, cameras and holsters that are equipped with the patented INSTANT-ON® technology. The first to pioneer automatic activation of a weapon-mounted accessory in 2011, Viridian continues to offer INSTANT-ON technology with every C Series®, X Series® (Gen 2 and 3) and REACTOR® models. Viridian also offers its proprietary TacLoc® holster line, giving users instantaneous, reflex-fast response to any threat.

In addition to the TacLoc holster lineup, Viridian works closely with many top holster makers to create solutions for Viridian-equipped firearms with INSTANT-ON. Some of these brands include DeSantis®, SafariLand®, Galco®, CrossBreed, BLACKHAWK! ®, Sticky Holsters and Alien Gear. A complete list of holster partners can be found online.

“Viridian has been offering revolutionary INSTANT-ON activation for more than eight years, and we continue to give customers true automation and blinding speed with the technology,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “Unlike other holsters that tout instant activation, Viridian’s holsters equipped with INSTANT-ON are sleek and practical, with no manual switches that impede laser/light/camera activation, cause the user to fumble or create an awkward grip. We’ve been changing the firearm accessories game for years, and we’re committed to providing the most innovative weapon-mounted technologies available.”

Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON technology automatically activates whenever users draw the firearm from its holster. This means that the split-second the gun is drawn, the INSTANT-ON system ignites the brilliant laser and/or light—targeting and intimidating in one reflex-fast move. For the Viridian FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC) and X Series® Gen 3 with Camera, INSTANT-ON immediately actives the HD camera and microphone as soon as the handgun clears the holster.

With virtually unlimited laser and light modes and hundreds of holster options equipped with the breakthrough INSTANT-ON system, Viridian has taken combat readiness to a whole new level. Draw-and-activate is obsolete. Not only does the system eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the laser, light or camera during a critical event, but it also keeps users from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.

The Viridian C Series, X Series and REACTOR Series are equipped with INSTANT-ON technology and activate when drawn from Viridian TacLoc holsters. The FACT Duty WMC and X Series Gen 3 with Camera are also equipped.
