Police departments, fire & rescue, paramedics and other governmental departments today face many hurdles while trying to protect and serve the citizens.

Tachyon, Inc. manufactures efficient, cost-effective tactical cameras built with the needs and budgets of the law enforcement community in mind. Some local and national police departments have already begun using them.

The Tachyon OPS HD and OPS HD Night Vision tactical cameras are just what every department needs. A tough, compact, and cost-effective camera that will record in quality HD video with crystal-clear audio. The current date and time is stamped on every video and photo for documentation. The OPS HD gets over 4 hours of recording time on a single charge of its rechargeable battery, and can easily be charged from any laptop or computer. There is also the option of using the OPS HD Charge n’ Record charger, along with a 12V source, to get unlimited power and recording time. This is an excellent choice when using the camera as a dash-cam or motorcycle-cam.

With a weight of only 1.2 oz, the camera is hardly noticeable and doesn’t get in the way of the officers job. And with the patented 8 direction mounting system, the mounting options are virtually unlimited. The Tachyon cameras have a one-button power on and off system, that allows for easy operation even while wearing heavy gloves and gear. Whether taking video or time-lapse photos, the camera picks up all the action with the 125 degree field of vision and with little fish-eye effect. All files are saved on the removable memory card and can easily be transferred to a hard drive for storage.

Included in the box with the cameras are a Rainproof Cover, a Contour mount, for mounting on a helmet, shield, or dashboard, a Tripod Mount for attaching to a ¼ 20 inch tripod screw, a Clip Mount for clipping the camera to just about anything, including caps and vests. Optional accessories include the Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, which can be easily mounted on a motorcycle or bicycle, the Picatinny Rail Mount, for mounting the camera to any piece of equipment with a Picatinny Rail, and the 12V or 110-240V Charge n’ Record Charger, which enables the camera to get continuous power for loop recording. Tachyon also offers the Tachyon GunCamTM mounts for mounting the cameras to rifles, shotguns, handguns, and scopes. For the OPS HD Night Vision, Tachyon makes the invisible, 940nm, Infrared Light. The Tachyon IR light can be mounted to a helmet, clipped to a cap, or attached to a Picatinny Rail, just like the cameras.

Tachyon XC trailer #3-Introducing the new goggle side mount…

Alright everyone the new goggle side mount is on its way.  It is in production as we speak and we are looking forward to this new revolutionary mount to be ready by March.  The mount was inspired by the high number of phone calls, emails and discussions with numerous military personnel, fire fighters, snowboard/skiers/snow sled riders and the list goes on.  So we went straight into designing and testing the new mount.  I personally took the mount to Colorado to hit the slopes with the first mock ups and was extremely pleased to say the least, as were my buddies (one whom is a former pro-snowboarder and surfer) and every resort employee and rider we ran into on the mountain!  If you scroll down you can watch that first test in the video titled SnowDaze.

I have just completed the second wave of testing in the new Tachyon XC trailer.  I sent a few cameras and side mounts with some friends to Park City, Utah where they filmed some incredible footage.  You will notice in the video 2 different points of view. The boot cam and the side mount.  The new goggle side mount was used in both situations.  There are two mounting options for the new mount.  You can either slide your goggle strap through the mount (the mound is shaped and rounded to fit comfortably against your head or helmet) where is rests against your head, or Velcro the mount directly to your helmet.  (With Industrial strength Velcro it will hold very securely).  The boot cam is used by wrapping a strap of some kind around your leg at the top of your snow boot so that the camera points to the front of your board or ski.  I absolutely loved the boot cam results, you really get the feel of riding  and of course you have the ability on your own to adjust the angle of view.


The new goggle side mount will be part of the Tachyon XC package when production is complete.  For all of our existing customers who have purchased the Tachyon XC helmet cam from our website will automatically receive the mount free by mail when production is complete.  Tachyon XC will also be creating a new XC package designed especially designed for Military, Fire, security and law enforcement personnel.   Again, we want to thank all of the insight from the military and fire personnel as well as our existing customers.
