DV-1 - 5th Generation Product Image

WatchGuard’s DV-1 is the In-Car Video system that revolutionized the way police record video. Saddled with hours of VHS tapes and painful court preparation of video evidence, agencies needed a solution that was simple to use and simple to manage.

The DV-1 is a standalone Direct-to-DVD system that requires no backend servers to operate. With advanced video capture, DVDauthoring and burning in the vehicle, the officer’s evidence leaves the car ready for court on a standard playable DVD.


  • Real Time DVD Recording: The DV-1 is the only In-Car Video solution on the market today that can record directly to a DVD in real time inside a moving patrol car.
  • Rugged Design: A system designed with officers in mind utilizing industrial grade components and rubber overmolding for a tough military finish.
  • Record After the Fact: Developed first by WaychGuard Video, Record After the Fact technology will allow you to go back in time, up to 20 hours, to capture video evidence that was not previously recorded. Never lose video again!
  • No Server Needed: Eliminate the need for costly servers and IT support.


  • Overhead Mounted: Fits into virtually every police vehicle made since 2000. Customized brackets make installation simple and easy.
  • Modular System: The DVR and DVD drive are in a separate housing mounted virtually anywhere in the vehicle, with a separate control panel for a simple and easy user interface in the vehicle.
