Taser +2.4% AH on NYPD trial report; Digital Ally +2%


Taser (NASDAQ:TASR) is up AH on a WSJ report stating the NYPD is using the company's wearable cameras, along with cameras from Vievu, in a trial program.

The Vievu camera can be worn on an officer's shirt, and the Taser camera can be mounted on glasses, a collar, or a shoulder. ~60 officers in 6 precincts will take part in the trial by year's end.

Shares rose 4.8% in regular trading after Taser announced multiple non-camera orders.

Fellow wearable camera maker Digital Ally (NASDAQ:DGLY) is also up AH. Its shares rose 13.2% in regular trading, continuing an epic run.

    you got it backwards. The TASR camera can be worn on glasses, collar, shirt and Vievue has to be worn on the shirt.

    While I like the TASR options for placement of the camera, I wonder if the Cloud software is going to hold up against Vievue? I have not seen either, but I have heard from some officers that the Vievue system appears to be easier to use and understand, which may drive the mass adoption toward them vrs. TASR.

    Yeah, but the problem with Vievue as opposed to TASR is that TASR can most likely handle the bandwidth and storage required by NYPD (the largest police force) compared to Vievu. NYPD has over 34,000 employees.
