The Viridian Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC®) from Viridian Weapon Technologies was chosen by NBC’s 12NEWS in Phoenix, AZ, as a centerpiece in a feature on new law enforcement technology. Viridian’s WMC was chosen for of its ability to reliably capture unobstructed footage of officer involved shootings.
“The Viridian WMC is designed to provide clear footage that traditional body cameras often miss,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The WMC records HD footage of a critical incident from its unobstructed position on an officer’s gun. Since it isn’t blocked by an officer’s hands, the WMC records additional information that can provide clarity to officer involved shootings.”
The highly advanced WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology automatically activates the camera and microphone whenever the officer draws the firearm from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the camera during a critical event, but it also keeps the officer from fumbling with cumbersome equipment.
