Digital Ally to Acquire New Intellectual Property Platform to Address Non-Law Enforcement Markets

New interactive video annotation and presentation technology will bring augmented reality to new addressable markets, such as medical, education, legal and psycho-therapy by providing virtual consultants and specialists

/EINPresswire.com/ -- LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - May 25, 2017) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY) ("Digital" or the "Company"), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced the signing of a letter of intent to acquire the SightDeck intellectual property ("IP") from iMatte, Inc. The SightDeck IP was developed to produce theatrical-quality special effects where real-time integration of graphics and images are needed and the platform is currently installed in several universities and hospitals.

The Company believes that the SightDeck technology, paired with Digital Ally's video and software products, will establish a new technology foundation for interactive video annotation and presentation. The combined technologies will form the basis for a new business strategy for Digital Ally as it targets new markets, such as medical, education, legal, and psycho-therapy. These markets have not fully utilized the power of augmented reality on a real-time basis, which improves the efficient use of premium and scarce resources, such as doctors, lawyers, specialists and consultants.

Digital Ally has already spent considerable efforts developing new distribution channels and potential customer networks that may find this new technology very appealing and a radical change/improvement over their traditional revenue streams. Digital Ally CEO Stanton Ross stated, "We have a clear roadmap to commercialize this new technology given the extensive market research we have completed, although we have much engineering development and integration work to accomplish after closing this transaction. We are excited about the SightDeck IP platform and the many new market channels for which we expect to adapt new products and service offerings. This product will help Digital Ally develop new recurring service revenue streams, which is a major initiative to restore its profitability and provide more consistent operating results," concluded Ross.

Key members of iMatte Inc., responsible for the SightDeck development, will be joining Digital Ally's research and development team. They will facilitate both the SightDeck technology transfer and integrate the new technologies developed by iMatte with Digital Ally's audio/video products that are central to Digital Ally's new business initiative. 

Closing of the transaction is subject to the successful completion of due diligence and negotiation of the definitive agreement. Under the proposed terms, the Company will pay 6% of revenues, with a minimum of $1 million, generated from the licensing and sale of products created from the SightDeck intellectual property platform over the three-year period after closing. The parties expect the purchase to be completed in the third quarter 2017.
