“We’ve raised the bar with Escort Live™ and continue to redefine ‘driving smarter’ with new technologies like Smart Office™ and Mobile TV™,” said CEO John Larson.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
ESCORT Inc. (ESCORTinc.com), designer and manufacturer of the world's best premium automotive accessories, announced two new products that will debut at the 2012 International CES alongside its multi-award winning all-new ESCORT Live™ real-time ticket protection network – ESCORT”s first ever mobile fleet office solution, ESCORT SmartOffice™, and ESCORT MobileTV™, a connected Mobile Digital TV receiver.
In addition to the CES debut, ESCORT invites CES press attendees to see ESCORT President and CEO, John Larson, present ESCORT Live™ and the new ESCORT SmartOffice™ mobile rugged PC and ESCORT’s MobileTV™ solution at ESCORT’s official CES Press Conference 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, room S227, at the LVCC press and media center.
ESCORT is also inviting CES media and press attendees to see personal demonstrations of the three new products at this week’s major CES press events:
- CES Unveiled, the official press event of the International CES, Sunday, January 8, 4:00p.m. – 7:00p.m., The Venetian, Venetian Ballroom D
- Pepcom’s Digital Experience, Monday, January 9, 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m., MGM Hotel
- Showstoppers @ CES 2012, Tuesday, January 10, 2012, 6:00p.m. – 10:00 p.m., Wynn Hotel, Lafite Ballroom.
“It’s widely known that ESCORT provides the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market,” said ESCORT President and CEO John Larson. “We’ve raised that bar with Escort Live™ and continue to redefine ‘driving smarter’ with new technologies like Smart Office™ and Mobile TV™.”
ESCORT SmartOffice™ rugged, mobile PC consolidates complete office functionality into a single, lightweight, connected mobile device. Based on familiar Microsoft Windows 7 PS and complete PC functionality, SmartOffice™ includes navigation, point-of-sale credit card processing, fleet vehicle management, remote inventory/CRM management, barcode/RFID reader, reverse camera option and fleet transportation/logistics monitoring. SmartOffice™ gives drivers and service providers all of their office tools fast, with accurate business solutions, delivered right where they need them – in the field, in real time.
ESCORT’s other new CES announcement is MobileTV™, a connected Mobile Digital TV (MDTV) receiver that quickly and easily allows consumers to receive digital TV on their WIFI-enabled smartphone, iPad or similar video-capable device while in moving vehicles. One major benefit of ESCORT MobileTV™ is that it does not use the device’s data link for connectivity but instead receives MDTV through WIFI – this helps reduce overall usage of the consumer’s data plan. Viewers won’t miss anything while traveling with others as they choose from news, weather, sports, traffic, entertainment and more in over 46 major metro markets (and expanding).
ESCORT will also be demonstrating its highly successful multi-award winning new ESCORT Live™ ticket protection network. In addition to already receiving four major industry awards, ESCORT Live™ has also been named as a CES 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering Award winner. ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord Live™ cords and a unique app for the driver’s smartphone. When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Live™ “cloud” and then broadcast across the ESCORT Live™ network, notifying drivers of potential ticket threats. In addition to network alerts, the new smartphone app technology provides ESCORT’s industry-leading Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as ESCORT’s patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.
Unique to the category is the ESCORT Live™ community’s real-time national reach and scale. Currently there are more than 1 million ESCORT and BELTRONICS ESCORT Live™ compatible radar detectors in use throughout North America. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and millions of driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live™ drivers. “Following an ESCORT Live™ driver yields excellent information about what lies ahead because the first vehicle’s alerts are seamlessly transmitted to other cars equipped with the ESCORT Live™ app,” Larson said.
ESCORT’s complete line of premium automotive accessories including ESCORT Live™, ESCORT SmartOffice™ mobile rugged PC and ESCORT’s MobileTV™ solution, will be on display at the ESCORT show booth (North Hall, booth #1509) at the CES show which runs from today through Friday at the Las Vegas Convention Center here.
