Viridian Showcases the FACT Duty Weapon-Mounted Camera at National Sheriffs’ Association Expo.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – June, 2021 – Viridian Weapon Technologies is showcasing the FACT Duty® Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC®) at the annual National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) Conference and Exposition in Phoenix, Arizona from June 22-24, 2021. The conference will give law enforcement personnel an opportunity to see the capabilities of Viridian’s Weapon-Mounted Camera (WMC). Attendees are encouraged to visit Viridian at booth #922 on the main aisle to learn more.
“This is our fourth year at the NSA conference and we’re proud to have the opportunity to showcase the growing track-record of our Weapon-Mounted Camera,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “The WMC automatically captures footage from the end of an officer’s firearm from the moment it comes out of the holster, and this additional footage has proven to be an essential evidentiary tool for understanding use of force events.”
The Viridian WMC
The highly advanced FACT Duty WMC employs a 1080p full-HD digital camera with a microphone and 500 lumen tactical light. This distinctive weapon-mounted camera provides a clear view of critical use-of-force events from the end of the firearm, addressing limitations officers can face with body cameras. 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. Body and dash cameras were not designed to capture officer-involved shootings. However, Viridian WMCs were designed specifically for this purpose.
