City Of Pharr Fire Department Purchases VidTac In-Vehicle Camera System for Front-Line Fire Apparatus

(September 03, 2014)

DALLAS, Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc. (OTCQB: COYN), which sells the
nation's premier software-driven video system and operates the
nation's largest law enforcement mobile data information system,
 announced that the City of Pharr Fire Department has
purchased the company's VidTac software-driven video system for use
in the city's front-line fire apparatus.

Video System Capabilities Extended to
Fire Department

The VidTac® software-driven system uses the
power of existing in-vehicle computers and eliminates the need for
a separate DVR (digital video recorder).  Its ultra-compact
camera (3 by 2.5 by 2 inches) simultaneously captures both
full-motion HD video and high-resolution five megapixel still
images. The system records at resolutions of up to 1080p, which
provides more than 10 times the image detail of standard resolution
analog cameras. By eliminating the need for a DVR, the VidTac
system sells for about half the price of other high-end systems on
the market.

"This was an easy decision for me," said City of
Pharr Fire Chief Jaime R. Guzman. "The real-time situational
awareness provided by a video system facilitates an effective
response when responding to a fire emergency. The video record can
also be used for protection of the crew or as evidence relating to
the incident itself. The ability of the VidTac system to capture
video at all times that the equipment is operational, even when not
in 'record' mode, was extremely important to the department. 
We believe this use of in-vehicle video by Pharr will set a
precedent to be followed by other fire departments throughout Texas
and the U.S."

"The innovative VidTac software-driven video
system has been reviewed by the Pharr IT  department, and we
recognize this as the right technology for our front line fire
units," said Jason Arms, the city's Director of Innovation &
Technology. He continued, "This will be a great asset to the city's
first responders and our citizens. I am proud that the Pharr fire
department is the first in the nation to adopt this needed and
innovative technology."
