Cornet Technology's iVDO Streamers are Texas Transportation Institute's Choice for an IP Video Compression Solution; The Approval Puts Video Convergence's Video IP Encoders and Decoders on the Map in Texas.
SPRINGFIELD, Va. -- Video Convergence, the video products and integration services division of Cornet Technology, Inc. (CTI (Computer Telephone Integration) Combining data with voice systems in order to enhance telephone services. For example, automatic number identification (ANI) allows a caller's records to be retrieved from the database while the call is routed to the appropriate party. ), announced that the Texas Transportation Institute The Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) is the largest transportation research agency in the United States. Created in 1950, primarily in response to the needs of the Texas Highway Department (now the Texas Department of Transportation), TTI has since broadened its focus to (TTI TTI Texas Transportation Institute

(IP) encoder/decoder vendor for the refurbishment of an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) test bed located in the City of College Station. Primary users of this test bed include the City of College Station Fire Department, Police Department and Traffic Operations office. TTI's positive evaluation gives credence to Video Convergence's next generation of IP encoders and decoders and helps introduce these products to other potential customers throughout Texas.
As part of their evaluation, TTI conducted a comparison of the iVDO Streamer 2/4 and several competing IP encoders/decoders, ranking the iVDO Streamer number one. The assessment took into account numerous criteria including product features, product capabilities, ease of use and a subjective interpretation of video quality.
"TTI was looking for Looking for
In the context of general equities, this describing a buy interest in which a dealer is asked to offer stock, often involving a capital commitment. Antithesis of in touch with. a product to produce a high quality picture that was transferable over an IP-based network," said Bob Brydia, Associate Research Scientist, TransLink Research Center, TTI. "In addition, the technology needed to be scaleable, with the potential to grow from two video streams to 200 video streams for future regional system expansion."
The test bed consists of twelve camera units installed at critical intersections along a train route that passes directly in front of the fire department. The train tracks separate the fire station from most of the area it services, creating a potential problem when a train is running. Video from each camera helps fire officials determine an approaching train's estimated time of arrival For other uses, see ETA (disambiguation)
The estimated time of arrival or ETA is a measure of when a vehicle, aircraft, cargo, emergency service, or computer file is expected to arrive at a certain place. , improving the station's emergency response times. The system utilizes the iVDO Streamer technology and operates within an IP-based network. This allows multiple agency access to real-time video streams from any location. Officials monitoring live video streams communicate and share current information among relevant agencies quickly and efficiently, proactively reacting to potential emergency situations.
Bob Brydia, TTI, commented that, "The iVDO Streamers Streamers is a play by David Rabe.
The last in his Vietnam War trilogy that began with The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel and Sticks and Bones have worked extremely well for the fire station, the local traffic offices and TTI. Video Convergence has proven to be very supportive by adding capabilities, responding to questions and continuing to develop the product. This has been a very significant benefit for TTI."
Makan Abousaeedi, Vice President of Sales, Video Convergence division, Cornet Technology, Inc. said, "It is a pleasure working with TTI, an institute dedicated to solving today's transportation challenges. Traffic management system implementation is happening more frequently because this technology provides real-time, accurate information that increases roadway safety and improves first responder first responder First response personnel Emergency medicine A person employed in the public sector–EMT, fire fighter, police, volunteer EMS–whose duties include provision of immediate medical care in the event of an emergency; FRs have basic emergency deployment. The College Station test bed implementation exemplifies one of the many ways Video Convergence's products can work with, and support, a variety of ITS projects."
