Montclair, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2005
Security surveillance systems have gone from being a luxury to a priority. We've all seen them: in line at the mini-mart, pointed at every bank teller window, scattered across casino ceilings. Well, thanks to VCT Vision, those stationary camera systems are now riding shotgun, and that doesn't mean you get to take the carpool lane.
Not long ago VCT Vision, Inc. successfully tested and implemented the first Roaming Video Surveillance System (RVSS, as they call it) prototype in a local law enforcement agency's undercover vehicle thus introducing remote-accessible live and archived video to the streets of Los Angeles.
VCT Vision based the new RVSS on their existing Elite Series product line (boasting high quality video at low bandwidth for use with their server and client software) having added the use of a Verizon Wireless Broad Band EVDO data connection to the RVSS.
A test vehicle was retrofitted with an RVSS system receiving input from multiple cameras. For the test(s) to work, video images would need to be captured, recorded, and operate with the software at a rate fast enough to keep up with a moving car and yield clear video images. Furthermore, a steady Internet connection must be maintained while driving for remote access to these real-time video images to even be possible.
Several 80-minute, cross-town trips on L.A. freeways proved successful; an internet connection was maintained and numerous client stations were connected and able to receive the live and archived video on devices including the handheld Samsung I730 smart phone running Windows Mobile Software. In fact, the VCT Vision software runs on any smart phone supporting the Windows Mobile Platform.
The RVSS system caught the eye of numerous law enforcement agencies who are interested in evaluating the system, one agency having already implemented an unmarked vehicle with the prototype.
With an added GPS receiver the system would be able to report the location of the Vehicle while viewing live video.
Barry Lederman, President of AnyToAnyVideo, LLC, stated: "As an OEM and a strategic partner of VCT Vision, Inc., we are very pleased to be able to offer the Roaming Video Surveillance System to our clients, especially the ones in the law enforcement sector. RVSS portability coupled with the availability of wireless client software for smart phones and pocket PC devices extends the rich functionality of the system."
While RVSS is an obvious contender for under cover surveillance, it doesn't stop there. The system will aid large companies with sizable fleets of vehicles by monitoring activities in and around each vehicle at all times whether idle or in use; construction companies can monitor each work site in real time for the duration of the project unburdened by the temporary nature of job-site locations; impermanent monitoring service for people's home or business is yet another RVSS use. The system is unique in its versatility and mobility and can be deployed in areas where connectivity is not available.
