Digital Ally Receives Order From State Police Of Michigan Valued at More Than $1.1 Million

Inclusion of DVM-800 Increases Total Contract Value by Over 40% to $6.5 Million

LENEXA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) ("the Company"), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced the receipt of an order valued at more than $1.1 million from the State of Michigan.

On December 3, 2013, Digital Ally announced that the Michigan State Administrative Board had approved appropriations for a one-year extension of its statewide contract with the Company, along with the expenditure of an additional $1.0 million for purchase of the Company's DVM-500Plus In-Car-Video Systems. The Company was originally awarded a three-year contract with the State of Michigan that, in addition to the State Police, allows any state, municipal or county agency to purchase Digital Ally's products without requiring competitive bid. The one-year extension brought the full value of the Michigan State Police contract to $4.5 million, including orders previously received under the original three-year contract.

Shortly after the extension of the statewide contract, Digital launched a series of new products, including the DVM-800 In-Car Video System and the patented VuLink device, which connects the Company's in-car-systems with its FirstVU HD body-worn cameras. Digital Ally originally expected significant orders from the Michigan State Police during either or both of the first two quarters of 2014. These orders did not materialize because the Michigan State Police elected to undertake an extensive test and evaluation program that specifically involved the DVM-800 system. This program was recently completed, and the Company's DVM-800 system has now been selected for full deployment by the Michigan State Police cruiser fleet.

Michigan has now extended and increased the size of the contract with Digital Ally to include the DVM-800, with a $2.0 million increase in funds appropriated for this purpose. The value of the total contract awarded to Digital Ally now approximates $6.5 million, which includes the original three-year contract plus the two extensions that are now in effect. The Company has received its first purchase order, which is valued at over $1.1 million, under this newly extended contract. This order is expected to ship in the quarter ending September 30, 2014.

"The Michigan contract is a great example of how our DVM-800 has been disruptive to the industry and has been accepted by our customers and potential customers," noted Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "We believe the DVM-800 was selected for its rich features, unparalleled five-year extended warranty with advanced replacement availability, the patented VuLink connectivity option, and its superior overall cost/benefit proposition."

"Many of our current and potential customers are evaluating our new DVM-800 in-car-video system and FirstVU HD body-worn cameras, together with the patented VuLink interconnectivity device," continued Ross. "The test results have been positive, and we believe a majority of customers that have undertaken such test and evaluation programs will select our total package, which addresses the need for secure video and audio evidence from many different viewpoints as incidents in the field unfold."
