Audax work in partnership with the police, emergency services and the security industry. to provide BWV solutions that meet 'evidence secure' technology requirements.

Adam Liardet, Managing Director of Audax, said: “Following a successful two year procurement selection process, the military and police in Vietnam are rolling out thousands of our cameras.”

“I am proud our ‘Secured By Design’ product excellence is recognised by our partners in Vietnam who selected us because of our international reputation and ‘evidentially’ secure cameras."

"We have shipped 2000 Cameras so far with another 2,500 to undertake before Christmas.”

“Our easy to use cameras are manufactured in the UK and exported all over the world.”

"Audax cameras are robust and have been developed, based on the years of experience we have gathered in our dealings with police forces and security professionals worldwide.”

"With a large front record button this makes the devices simpler to use 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 has a longer life battery, can be used in the dark as it has built in IR lamps, has in built GPS for location pinpointing and is both significantly lighter and more robust so it can cope with the climate,” he said.

Mr Liardet, said: “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.” 

“I was out in Vietnam in the summer and am due to return again shortly but have found Vietnam to be completely different from what I expected,” he said.

"Vietnam is one of the fastest growing economies in the region and showed a GDP growth of 7.1% in 2018.”

"While Vietnam is a one-party state ruled by the Communist Party of Vietnam; they have a strong commitment to create a favourable business environment and are publicly committed to addressing corruption.”

"With 50% of its population being less than 35 years old and with positive economic conditions comes a new found confidence.”

“Audax have offices in Plymouth, Brussels and in Humberside, while, the UK/EU are strong and important markets for the company, this latest export win is of note, due to the end user and the size of the order.”

Audax are pioneers in Body Worn Video (BWV) technology and were the first UK Security SME ever funded by the European Union H2020. Audax were the Communications Systems Award winner at the Counter Terror Business awards and winners of the Most Innovative in Security Technology at the Innovation & Excellence Awards 2019.
