“The entire ESCORT team is honored to receive the CES award for ESCORT Live’s outstanding design and engineering,” said ESCORT President and CEO John Larson.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
ESCORT Inc. (ESCORTinc.com), today confirmed that its all-new ESCORT Live™ technology, the world’s first ticket protection social network for drivers, has won an International Innovation Design and Engineering award at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show’s (CES), the world’s largest consumer technology show.
The show runs from today through Friday at the Las Vegas Convention Center here. Press attendees should plan to attend ESCORT’s press conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11, in room S227, LVCC, where ESCORT Live™ will be demonstrated along with other new product debuts.
“The entire ESCORT team is honored to receive the CES award for ESCORT Live’s outstanding design and engineering,” said ESCORT President and CEO John Larson. “This award demonstrates that ESCORT Live™ is a revolutionary new product that will unite drivers in a social network for the road.”
The CES honor is the latest in a series of awards ESCORT has received for ESCORT Live™, including:
- “Best New Mobile Electronics Product” by SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association)
- SEMA Show “Global Media Winner”
- Popular Mechanics “Editor's Choice” Award for Best New Product
- Car and Driver Magazine’s “10 Best Promising New Technologies”
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 other drivers of potential ticket threats.
“ESCORT Live™ is a nation of protected drivers helping other drivers in the ultimate live alert network,” Larson said. “Our radar detector products have always provided drivers with the highest level of ticket protection in the marketplace. Now, with ESCORT Live™, ESCORT drivers don’t need to be in the range of the threat, they just need to be in the network.”
The key to the ESCORT Live™ community is real-time national reach and scale, and the fact that it is ready to work with more than one million ESCORT and BELTRONICS models already in use today. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live™ drivers.
ESCORT Live™ is on display along with ESCORT’s other award-winning, premium automotive accessories today through Friday in North Hall, Booth #1509.
In addition to ESCORT Live™, ESCORT also announced three new products: ESCORT QuickStart™, a remote start and security system that allows you to start, track and secure your vehicle with your smart phone; ESCORT SmartOffice™, ESCORT’s first mobile fleet office solution; and ESCORT MobileTV™, a connected Mobile Digital TV receiver.
With ESCORT’s QuickStart Remote Start and Security System™, you can control multiple vehicles with one app and assign more than one user to control a vehicle. ESCORT's QuickStart App gives you one-touch control for features such as remote start, arm/lock, panic or car finder and Smart Park™.
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’s complete line of premium automotive accessories including ESCORT Live™, ESCORT QuickStart™ Remote Start and Security System, ESCORT SmartOffice™ mobile rugged PC and ESCORT’s MobileTV™ solution, will be on display at the ESCORT show booth (North Hall, booth #1509). The show runs from today through Friday at the Las Vegas Convention Center here. For complete details on ESCORT products, visit ESCORTinc.com or call 800.433.3487.
