The 10-8 Video System was born out of personal necessity. As an officer and K-9 handler with a small department, funding was not available for in-car video systems. And in today's judicial environment, they are becoming an absolute necessity! I began looking into the 12 major suppliers of patrol car video systems and was disappointed that they started at about $3,000 and went way up from there. Some even needed additional back end equipment to support the systems in the vehicles. I looked at surplus equipment, but it was very outdated and came with no guarantees to be complete or even work.

So I decided to use my 25+ years in the computer and consumer electronics industry, including several years in management with a fortune 100 company. I knew that the technology was available to put together an all digital system for a much more reasonable price, and target the needs and budgets of the smaller departments. I wanted a system that would be all digital (no outdated videotape with it's contact based recording) with no moving parts (not even a hard drive to crash) and I wanted a system that was small enough that finding a place to mount it in a component crowded cruiser would not be a challenge. And, I wanted it to be around $1,000! That's not asking for too much, is it?
