Digital Ally gets first camera order since Ferguson shooting

Digital Ally, which also makes cameras compact enough to be pinned to shirts, belts or eyeglasses, said on Thursday it received an order of more than $1.1 million from Michigan state police. Michigan police ordered Digital Ally's DVM-800 video camera which are fitted in the rear view mirrors of patrol cars, the company said. These and the company's miniature, body-worn audio-video systems together generated about 45 percent of Digital Ally's total revenue of $3.5 million in the quarter ended June 30.
