TransViewer software links mobile content, video for response teams in Oakland County

New York, NY (January 10, 2008) – AirVisual, Inc., a leading solution provider for the enterprise security and public-safety market, today announced it has successfully deployed its TransViewer software for use by responders from Oakland County's hazardous materials response teams. The system was integrated by AirVisual engineers and can deliver pre-recorded and live video and other critical information to computer terminals and mobile devices to and from the responding vehicles over an array of hardwired and wireless networks.

This mobile content management software gives users the ability to share critical information from one vehicle to another on a peer-to-peer user platform while sharing that same information with remote command center(s). Additionally, the vehicles can be tracked by using an integrated user interface with GPS positioning on an ESRI mapping system. The system can also connect to AirVisual's suite of third party OEM integrations so that disparate networks and supporting information can be collected prior to an emergency response.

"AirVisual is pleased to have the opportunity to deploy our TransViewer system for this project with Oakland County's Office of Emergency Response & Preparedness, and the area fire departments that make up the hazmat teams," said Tom Hansen, AirVisual's founder and CEO. "This is a great mobile solution because it makes the apparatus so much more useful and intelligent, and that will help save lives. We cannot put value on supporting information our responders need when enroute to a critical situation. It is pretty simple, the more information gathering, the better."

The TransViewer system is mobile content management software that was created to give a vehicle the ability to collect and transmit a multitude of information to other responding elements and to traditional command centers in real time. Built to reside specifically on vehicles, the software turns the vehicle into an information collection point. The software can send and receive sensor information, GIS/GPS, video, audio, SMS, alarms and user updates. Additionally, the platform connects to remote video sources, access control, RFID, and performs adaptive routing, optimization, distribution, and delivery of content based on a rules and permissions based system.

The AirVisual Content Delivery Platform accelerates the delivery of rich video and supplementary content to-and-from traditional command centers and mobile subscribers. It manages network traffic and reduces costs for partner content distributors. The content delivery platform is the foundation of the company's multitude of integrated products and services.
