BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and LISLE, Ill., March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless and Lextech Labs today announced a business service agreement that will enable users of Lextech Labs' iRa C3 product to view live and recorded video surveillance feeds on smartphones and tablets running on the Verizon Wireless 3G and 4G Networks. With the ability of extending video surveillance to a mobile device, supervision professionals are able to view video practically anywhere, anytime without having to be in a security control room or a specialized surveillance vehicle.
Lextech's C3 unlocks the full potential of video surveillance by distributing real-time video for entities that need to act and make instant decisions, including police, security teams, building management and field workers, in virtually any situation that requires real-time monitoring.
Recent upgrades to the C3 product line include the ability to view recorded and live video in a split-screen format. C3 has a built-in capability to optimize the delivery of video over the Verizon Wireless 3G and 4G networks.
"Running on Verizon Wireless' reliable network, Lextech's C3 gives our customers, such as federal, state and local authorities, the ability to look around corners through buildings and onto rooftops, by providing the access to control and view the video from an IP camera with a Verizon Wireless smartphone or tablet regardless of their physical location," said Bryan Schromsky, associate director, Federal Government Data Solutions for Verizon Wireless. "This virtual capability improves safety and knowledge of a situation in order to make decisions smarter and faster than ever before."
"By entering into this agreement with Verizon Wireless, our joint customers can realize the full potential of their video surveillance to improve their business operations," said Alex Bratton, chief executive officer, Lextech Labs. "Combining the technology built into our application and the Verizon Wireless newly launched 4G LTE network, customers can be assured that their video is truly delivered in real time with virtually no latency, allowing for critical, split-second decision making in any situation when it matters most."
