ST. PAUL, Minn., April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISS) (NASDAQ: ISNS), and partner Econolite are pleased to announce the introduction of Autoscope® ENCORE™, the next generation of Autoscope multitasking video solutions, providing reliable, comprehensive traffic information necessary for the most demanding intelligent transportation systems (ITS). The Autoscope ENCORE introduction marks 20 years of the successful partnership between ISS and Econolite. Autoscope ENCORE products will be primarily sold in the North American market, for which Econolite is the exclusive marketing partner for ISS.
"Autoscope ENCORE builds upon all of the legendary features of its Autoscope predecessors, making it a powerful ITS solution," said Ken Aubrey, President and CEO of Image Sensing Systems, Inc. "By simplifying installation and leveraging a new high-integrity enclosure design, Autoscope ENCORE represents an environmentally secure video detection platform upgrade, providing convenient integration with virtually any network while at the same time reducing overall visual obtrusiveness."
ENCORE sensors feature a unique lens aperture as part of a newly designed housing assembly that provides the best video detection possible in all weather and lighting conditions while reducing unit weight and end-to-end footprint by nearly 50 percent.
A true multitasking video detection solution, Autoscope ENCORE features improved network capability and security, comprehensive data collection, robust tools and personalized technical support for ease of setup and configuration, and software development tools to achieve efficiencies and seamlessly integrate with other ITS systems. These features and improvements offer unparalleled control, security, and immediate data and video access.
