Darim Wearable Camera KitBy: John Honovich, Published on Jun 30, 2009
Darim produces a wearable wireless video kit. The kit provides bundles camera, encoder, wireless networking and batteries providing up to 5 hours of use. Darim reports that they expect integration with Milestone in August. For wireless connectivity, they have WiFi and Motorola Canopy mesh options. The kit offers two camera options: analog or thermal (using FLIR's PathFindIR). The MSRP for the analog camera version is $2,500 and the MSRP for the thermal version is $6,000. At these price points, the target market is likely military/police use for responding to emergencies. An alternative is to building these kits oneself. However, the fixed cost of testing and optimizing may make this unattractive unless you are deploying dozens of these kits.
