This new capability will allow local Department of Transportation (DOTs) offices and users of DOT data to easily reference TrafficLand cameras for a variety of types of location referencing. TIC users will also be able to quickly reference the nearest camera to a traffic incident, and even create alert notifications or generate response plans, which include a view of the incident from the TrafficLand camera.
“This new capability in the TIC system brings together the world leader in transportation software and the largest authorized aggregator and distributor of live traffic video in the U.S.” said Jim O’Neill, CEO of GEWI North America. “This collaboration will make it easier than ever for both public and private sector companies to collect, store, view and distribute TrafficLand cameras and associate those cameras with other types of event, incident or even sponsorship data.”
TrafficLand President Bob Reed said, “The integration of TrafficLand cameras into GEWI’s TIC3 system makes it easier than ever for organizations of all types to benefit from TrafficLand’s extensive camera network, patented image engine serving technology and highly flexible transcoding technology (TLX). The inclusion of TLX allows organizations to continue to leverage existing legacy video hardware while layering new IP video platforms seamlessly. This new relationship creates a winning scenario for not only TrafficLand and GEWI, but our customers as well.”
TIC3 is the fourth generation of GEWI’s globally acclaimed traffic data processing software. The groundbreaking new architecture of TIC3 makes it easy to collect, store, monitor and distribute any type of traffic data or data format. TIC3’s unique “forwardly compatible system” allows for the easy addition of new emerging data types. As a commercial-off-the-shelf product, TIC3 can be deployed much faster and affordably than custom-built systems.
GEWI develops TIC, a platform used to process data for information services, as proven in over 125 commercial and government projects operating worldwide. TIC has been used extensively in live traffic information systems since 1997. GEWI values customers and quality, and has been awarded ISO 9001 certification annually since 1998. TIC is available from and supported 24/7 by GEWI corporations in Europe, North America, and Asia and by partners globally.
