Digital Ally and Pivot International Enter Agreement for Design and Manufacture of Innovative Breathalyzer Device
LENEXA, Kan. - December 26, 2019 - ( Newswire.com )
Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video recording products for law enforcement, emergency management, fleet safety and security, today announced its partnership with Pivot International (“Pivot”) for the development and production of Digital Ally’s new, innovative breathalyzer for law enforcement. Pivot will integrate Digital Ally’s recently issued patent, U.S. Patent No. 10,390,732 (the “’732 Patent”), into a revolutionary breathalyzer. With this new technology, when an officer is conducting a field sobriety test and the breathalyzer is activated, the digital video recording device will automatically start a recording, later embedding the meta-data captured onto the recorded video. The ’732 Patent was granted by the U.S. Patent Office in August of 2019 and is an expansion of Digital Ally’s patented VuLink automatic activation technology.
Common defense claims during the prosecution of court cases are that field sobriety tests were incorrectly administered or that human error has occurred. Digital Ally’s new breathalyzer, integrated with the ’732 Patent and paired only with the Digital Ally’s video recording devices, will aid law enforcement officers in convicting suspects on criminal acts, such as DUIs, by helping to authenticate and preserve the chain of custody of the meta-data captured by the breathalyzer in the court of law. All meta-data and video captured will automatically be uploaded and stored in Digital Ally’s back-office solution powered by Amazon Web Services.
Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally, stated, “We are extremely happy to partner with Pivot International as we begin to develop and produce our newest innovation. Our product will be unlike any other in the industry because it will have the ability to display data captured on the recorded video. We are confident that our product will be a vital tool for law enforcement officers.” Mark Dohnalek, CEO of Pivot International, stated, “We are extremely happy that Digital Ally has chosen Pivot International to develop and manufacture its newest patented innovation involving breathalyzers. Pivot has a long track record of bringing revolutionary products to market in a timely and efficient manner. We’re confident this new product will become an industry-standard while providing a critical new tool for law enforcement officers in their effort to enforce drunken driving laws.”
