Blackline Transforms the Covert Tracking Industry Once Again with Dart09:00 EDT Tuesday, September 11, 2012PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2012) - At the 2012 ASIS International 58th Annual Seminar and Exhibits where security professionals world-wide will be looking for innovative products, services and solutions for their industry, Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) will be launching the latest addition to its award-winning portfolio of cutting-edge covert tracking devices - Dart™. Blackline's Dart product is a professional covert and asset tracking solution that delivers top-of-the-line capabilities while minimizing both initial purchase and ongoing operational costs. By deploying a more compact form factor and making the various mounting methods optional, Blackline has driven down the cost to purchase Dart without compromising tracker reliability or functionality. "Dart distinguishes itself from its competitors with its lithium-ion battery containing nearly twice the capacity of other devices," says Cody Slater, Blackline's CEO and Chairman. "It is also unique from competition in that it is equipped with store-and-forward capabilities, allowing the device to store up to 12,000 locations when outside of cellular coverage and transmit this data to our infrastructure upon re-entry. Plus, Dart's Gold service plan will be the first Blackline offering to include cellular ID and cellular triangulation, providing location information when GPS signals are unavailable." Introduced with three new service plan configurations, Dart users can select the level of service and corresponding price-point appropriate to their needs. With service starting at as little as $15 per month Dart provides an affordable, entry-point that is more cost-effective than competitor's offerings. Priced at $30 per month, Dart's Gold plan provides surveillance professionals with cellular ID location technology and 1-minute GPS track-on-motion. Hosted at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, with over 20,000 attendees from various sectors of the security industry, and representing 104 countries world-wide, the ASIS 2012 Seminar and Exhibits is a leading security event. Blackline's Dart covert tracking device will be on display at booth 2760 of the ASIS 2012 Exhibition and will begin shipping in early October of this year.
