SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 31, 2013— 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.
