WALLINGFORD, CT – June 28, 2004 – VBrick Systems, www.VBrick.com, the premier provider of networked video solutions, announced today that the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will deploy a streaming digital traffic monitoring system powered by VBrick Systems’ networked video appliances. The contract will enable the UDOT to view next-generation MPEG-2 video from remote surveillance cameras linked to VBrick’s Security, Surveillance and Monitoring (VBSSM) appliance across its EASI IP data platform to its Traffic Operations Center, over its existing network infrastructure.
“As with several other state DOTs, the decision by the Utah DOT to deploy VBrick intelligent network appliances underscores our leadership in supplying government agencies with simple and affordable solutions to help increase safety and security,” said Joe Chordas, Director of Global Inside Sales for VBrick Systems. “The television streams, broadcast from the VBrick VBSSM, match the quality of DVD video when viewed from any PC desktop or television connected to a set-top box on the network.”
The VBrick solution brings simplicity and top-notch industry standards to the crucial end-points of the UDOT’s EASI IP MPEG-2 video, audio and data networking platform. VBrick’s appliances are deployed at each remote camera site and linked to the high-capacity IP network. The encoded video stream is then multicast throughout the network to any desktop and viewed as high-quality 30-frame-per second full-screen video.
“UDOT will be using VBrick devices to achieve our goal of transitioning to a digital environment, incorporating digital video over an IP multicast network,” said Sam Sherman, ITS & CVO Engineer.
VBricks are currently being used for traffic monitoring by DOT departments across the country, from
