Global wireless CCTV technology specialist Vemotion, headquartered in Thirsk, North Yorkshire (UK), announces the appointment of CriticalStreaming.com as its first specialist solution provider, dedicated specifically to the transport and logistics sectors. This latest development in wireless CCTV streaming will see CriticalStreaming.com operate solely as a delivery mechanism to provide Vemotion products and services to the public and private transport industries.
CriticalStreaming.com supplies live streaming solutions specifically designed to service the specific requirements of the transport sector, tackling the unique needs of those specialising in passenger transport and logistics. Powered by Vemotion, the CriticalStreaming.com technology is already relied upon by police, security forces and government agencies around the world, and this new partnership is designed to expand the service further and provide a bespoke response to those only interested in transportation solutions.
“We are delighted to be working with CriticalStreaming.com,” said Vemotion CEO, Stewart McCone. “While historically popular with law enforcement and security services because of its robust manufacture and reliability, Vemotion technology has many civilian applications and we are looking forward to assisting CriticalStreaming.com in further supporting a market sector we believe has enormous potential.”
Civilian uses include applications in public transport, where ensuring the safety of passengers travelling for example by bus, coach, rail train and tram is paramount. CCTV has always played a key role in securing cash in transit, but additional applications for CriticalStreaming.com are both varied and numerous. These applications include – but are not limited to – helicopters; private security; shipping, harbours and other waterways.
“If it moves and if you need live and/or retrievable footage, CriticalStreaming.com is now the first port of call,” said Stewart. Based in London but with global service capability wherever there is a network, CriticalStreaming.com provides high quality live video access to both on-board CCTV cameras and recorded data, via the mobile phone network.
Most importantly, this connectivity includes the ever present GPRS network that is often the only available network in less densely populated areas both here in the UK, as well as the rest of Europe.
Advances in wireless technology means live streaming is moving out of covert, police and military applications into greater use in civilian life. The need to respond to crime and the spectre of terrorism now sees wireless streaming playing a key role protecting staff and passengers alike on public transport and also in ways members of the public might not expect.
