TASER Disrupts On-Officer Video Market With AXON Body

The Best Body Camera at a Disruptive Price of $299

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/13 -- TASER (NASDAQ: TASR) today revealed the newest addition to its family of on-officer video cameras. The AXON body™ camera provides a convenient option for officers who are looking for world-class functionality in a simple design. At just $299, agencies with budget restrictions can now afford top-tier video capability.

"We have been very happy with the existing AXON flex and EVIDENCE.com solution during the last two years," said Lt. Tom Peterson, Winston-Salem Police Department. "We look forward to exploring AXON body as a complement to AXON flex."

TASER, the market leader in on-officer cameras, created the new AXON body for agencies that value a simpler camera option at a lower price point. The sleek design, wide-angle lens, and automated workflows allow for wearability and easy deployment.

"AXON body is a truly disruptive product, offering best-in class features at a fraction of the price of competitive products," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER. "For entry level users looking for simplicity at the lowest price, the AXON body delivers a ruggedized video option for less than $300. Less capable police body cameras are typically priced in the $700-$900 range.

"With the new AXON body and our flagship AXON flex point-of-view system, we now have a product lineup that includes a range from best price to highest performance.

"With AXON body, our strategy is simple: we created a camera that is so compelling, at such an aggressive price that every agency can afford to protect their officers. For only $299, every officer can defend themselves from unfounded complaints while preserving an indisputable record of the events they encounter every day," concluded Smith.

Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
