Body Worn Video (BWV) technology specialists and industry pioneers, Audax® who are based in the UK, are celebrating once again after winning another major contract to supply the Police in Vietnam with Audax® cameras.
Adam Liardet, Managing Director of Audax®, said: “as a result of a careful procurement selection process by our customer alongside the huge success of previous projects, the Police in Vietnam are boosting their inventory with more of our cameras.”
“Ensuring our cameras are robust and durable for all British climatic conditions is one thing, but they have also proved to meet the demanding conditions and requirements of our customers in more ‘exotic’ locations. Audax® products have been used globally by the emergency services on the frontline for nearly 20 years. Our years of experience in dealing with Police forces and security professionals worldwide have greatly contributed to the design and development of the products we offer today.”
Headquartered in Plymouth, with satellite offices in Canterbury and Brussels, the Audax® team is predominantly composed of service veterans. The company design and develop products and perform all final assembly, testing and quality control functions in their Plymouth facility. As such, Audax® is an approved Members of Made in Britain, the register of British Manufacturers.
With a large front record button, the devices are simpler to operate, and unlike other cameras used by some UK Police forces, the video review screen is on the rear of the camera, so it is not as easily damaged. It also doesn’t require linking to a mobile phone. Audax body worn video cameras have a longer life battery and can be used in the dark as they include built-in IR lamps. They also feature GPS for location pinpointing and are both significantly lighter and more robust to cope with the climate.
Mr Liardet, adds: “Our products are designed to be secure so evidence can’t be manipulated or tampered with, and they protect members of the public just as much as they protect officers from false allegations. They are independently tested and certified in both Europe and the USA for use in dynamic environments.”
“We have shipped nearly 8,000 cameras to Vietnam in the last two years. As a result of this, and our other customers recognising our ‘Made in Britain’ quality, we have not only avoided furloughing any staff but have even recruited new staff members to the team this year. Furthermore, demand is so strong that we have had to double our floor space in Plymouth.”
