Kustom Signals, Inc. is Chanute born and bred. In 1965, Kustom began making audio amplifiers and has since become a leading global supplier of products that protect both the public and law enforcement officers. Kustom is celebrating its 50th year which recently culminated on October 8th with a day of factory tours, dinner at The Venue on Main Street, and a night of casino games (no cash allowed). Speaking at the celebration were Betsy Reynolds, President of the Chanute Chamber of Commerce; Tim Fairchild, Chanute’s Mayor; Jeff King, Kansas State Senator for the 15th Senate District; and Gary Braswell, Chairman of MPD, Inc. which is the parent of Kustom Signals.
Kustom Signals, Inc. announced today that their newest in-car video (ICV) system, Eyewitness HD, will be available for demonstrations at IACP in Chicago (Booth 4042). Eyewitness HD offers a 7” tablet with intuitive touch screen controller making for clean, easy interaction. The system will also interface with your MDC as an alternative, or in addition to the tablet. The MDC interface includes a convenient, compact control box that supports critical system controls in the event your MDC malfunctions or is simply removed from the vehicle. The tablet and MDC user interfaces are essentially identical allowing officers to switch from one to the other in a mixed fleet scenario without missing a beat.
