Viridian® to Introduce New Products at DSEI
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – September 1, 2017 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is proud to present cutting-edge weapon-mounted technologies at the 2017 Defense and Security Equipment International (DSEI) event in London. DSEI, a world-leading event for global defense and security markets, will be held at the ExCel convention center September 12 through 16. Attendees will be able to see and experience Viridian’s new FACT (Fast Access Camera Technology) Weapon-Mounted Cameras (WMC™) at the show.
Recognized as a leader in laser technology in Europe, Viridian creates an entirely new category for handguns and law enforcement with the introduction of the FACT™ camera. The highly advanced, Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC™) employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Designed exclusively to answer the needs of duty officers, the FACT camera provides an unobstructed view between the gun’s muzzle and subject, overcoming an inherent limitation with body camera products.
The advantages FACT offers over traditional body mounted cameras and other products in use today are gaining momentum. Recent local news coverage and law enforcement interest illustrates just how important this new category could become. FACT is compatible with many full-size semi-automatic pistols and popular duty holsters including Safariland®
Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment. All three FACT models—including the FACT DUTY™, FACT COMPACT™ and FACT MICRO™ —come fully equipped with Viridian’s patented INSTANT-ON® technology.
“FACT is making its international debut at one of the biggest defense and security events in the world, and we’re eager to bring this product to law enforcement agencies everywhere,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “An officer should never be limited or hindered by inadequate technology, and it’s more important than ever to have reliable equipment that improves post-action analysis. With INSTANT-ON technology, strategic placement, clear audio and HD-quality video, FACT will be a game-changer for officers across the globe.”
