Audax® are worldwide leaders and Pioneers in developing Body Worn Video (BWV) technology. Audax work in partnership with the Police, Emergency Services and the Security Industry to provide BWV solutions that meet “evidence secure” technology requirements.

The Audax team consists of some of the most knowledgeable experts in the industry which also means that, as well as ground breaking innovative solutions, Audax also offer a wealth and depth of experience and excellent customer service as standard.

They started with product demonstrations in July 2005 at a G8 Summit and led the World in 2006 in a joint project with the UK Home Office, which led to the first ever standards and guidance document for BWV being produced. In recent years they have again led the UK Security Industry as they were the First UK Security SME ever funded by the European Union Research and Innovation H2020 Instrument in a Phase 2 project. This project culminated in March 2018 with the hosting and visit of The European Union Commissioner for Security Sir Julian King and at the same time were the Communications Systems Award winner at the Counter Terror Business awards.

Headquartered in Plymouth, the Historic Port City where the founders and early settlers of America, Australia and New Zealand all departed on their epic journeys, and from where the first ever Transatlantic flight landed.  Audax continues with a global reach having satellite offices in both Northern England and Brussels, Belgium this has enabled  Audax® to liaise better with their customer base and partners and it is in this ‘partnering approach’ that has led to another industry ‘First’.
