RA'ANANA, Israel, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that NICE Inform has been recognized as one of the most exciting products presented at the annual APCO International conference with an APCO Hot Products award. Recipients were selected by the APCO Public Safety Communications (PSC) Magazine, the official magazine of the global Association of Public Safety Communications Officials.
As the first-to-market multimedia incident investigation and debriefing solution, NICE Inform ensures that Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) will be ready to address the challenges of capturing Next Generation 9-1-1 emergency communication in the form of voice, text, telematics, and video. The latest version of NICE Inform enables PSAPs to create complete incident reconstruction by importing video from smartphones, in-car video systems, and third party video surveillance systems, and by integrating other information like voice recordings, screen recordings, and related multimedia.
"The Hot Products review team is made up of public safety communications professionals, who are looking for substantial improvements over previous product releases - innovative capabilities that make their jobs easier while addressing newly identified needs," said Keri Losavio, Editor of APCO PSC Magazine. "They're a tough group of reviewers to impress."
This is the second time NICE Inform took home an award, having previously received the APCO Hot Products award in 2009.
"We're very honored that NICE Inform has once again been recognized with an APCO Hot Products award," said Yaron Tchwella, Security President and EVP Business Operations at NICE. "As PSAPs progress towards Next Generation 9-1-1, additional communication methods and data information, such as smartphone video, will be supported to improve the quality and foundation of PSAP operations. Captured smartphone video and video from private and city surveillance systems can be vitally important to investigations. NICE Inform allows these elements to be captured and synchronized in a comprehensive manner."
NICE Inform is featured among other APCO Hot Products in PSC Magazine's November issue. Currently, NICE Inform is deployed at over 1,600 sites globally, including some of the world's largest emergency communications centers.
