Firms Join to Provide Mobile Access to Surveillance Video

Verizon Wireless and Lextech Labs' collaboration retrieves feeds via 3G and 4G networks.

Verizon Wireless and Lextech Labs unveiled a joint business agreement that allows 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, the companies say in a written statement.

Using mobile devices to access video surveillance provides supervision professionals the ability to view video practically anywhere, anytime without having to be in a security control room or a specialized surveillance vehicle, the firms say.

In addition, Lextech says its C3 “can unlock 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.

Lextech says, 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, the company says.

“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, Verizon Wireless’ associate director of federal government data solutions. That virtual capability improves safety and knowledge of a situation in order to make decisions smarter and faster than ever before, he added.

“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, Lextech Labs’ chief executive officer. “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.”
