LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ESCORT Inc.

The category leader and dominant patent portfolio innovator will be presenting its all-new ESCORT MobileTV™ Digital Television receiver for watching TV on the go. While at CES, focus will also be on the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app, the social network for the road, and ESCORT's class-leading radar and laser detectors including the new ESCORT SmartRadar™ Bluetooth Enabled Radar/Laser Detector. ESCORT will also be exhibiting at several major media and press events during CES week.
ESCORT MobileTV, recently released for use with iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices, will soon be available for devices running Android. ESCORT MobileTV is a miniature digital TV receiver that works with the free iDTV USA app. Currently available without a subscription fee, ESCORT MobileTV and the Dyle app give consumers access to live, local broadcast television across more than 90 stations in 35 markets, reaching up to 55 percent of the nation's population. Users can watch live entertainment, sports and breaking news without the need to tap into wireless data plans, avoiding 3G/4G, Wi-Fi or data plan requirements and costs.
"Teaming up with iDTV USA and Dyle mobile TV has enabled ESCORT to deliver mobile digital TV for customers on the go," said John Larson, President & CEO of ESCORT. "Adding to our successful product release of the Apple compatible ESCORT MobileTV™, we are now including Android customers who will soon be able to view their favorite TV programs while traveling."
Demonstrations of the new products will take place at the two most publicized media and press events held at CES. ESCORT CES media presence includes the Pepcom Digital Experience Monday, Jan. 7th(7:00 to 10:00 PM) at the MGM Hotel and Casino and the CES Showstoppers 2013 CES media event on Tuesday, Jan. 8th (6:00 to 10:00 PM) at the Wynn Casino and Resort. ESCORT will be demonstrating the new MobileTV accessory alongside the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app and its class-leading SmartRadar Bluetooth enabled detector.
Repeatedly called out in prominent reviews as a leading new technology (Edmunds 'top ten best new product', Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice, a Car and Driver 'Top Ten Most Promising New Technology' award winner and a CNET 'must see' new product), 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.
ESCORT compatible radar detectors including the PASSPORT series and SmartRadar™ models, when connected with the award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app, provide ticket protection technology and road awareness unmatched in the industry.
The smartphone app also provides ESCORT's test-winning Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.
"It's widely known that ESCORT provides the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market," added Larson. "We've raised that bar with Escort Live™ and continue to redefine 'driving smarter' and now 'riding smarter' with new technologies like Mobile TV™."
In addition to presenting at the two major 2013 CES press shows, ESCORT will also have a private meeting room (Hilton Aria, Penthouse Suite).
