Vizzion, aggregator of the world’s largest network of traffic cameras, announced today the integration of their Desktop Video Wall traffic camera-viewing application into all INRIX incident operations centers.
Vizzion’s Desktop Video Wall allows INRIX incident editors to monitor thousands of important roadway locations in order to quickly locate incidents, determine the extent of an incident, and pinpoint exactly when lanes are clear again.
“The application has proven to be an invaluable addition to our data sourcing toolkit,” said Bob Dengler, Incident Data Manager at INRIX. “When we get a report of an accident, we can quickly pull up the affected roadway to review all available images and find the incident in seconds, instead of the minutes it took previously.” Every second counts in an incident operations center and to INRIX’s customers.
With Vizzion’s Desktop Video Wall, users can access traffic camera feeds from over 160 different transportation agencies to get the most comprehensive picture of road and weather conditions on a single map interface. Incident editors can create and save custom traffic camera video walls and automatically cycle them across multiple screens, allowing INRIX to spot incidents before being alerted from other sources.
Vizzion created the Desktop Video Wall after seeing the limitations from which most operations centers suffer when using DOT websites or homegrown solutions to view traffic cameras. Using Vizzion’s database of over 50,000 cameras, the Desktop Video Wall is able to rapidly access cameras in 600 cities across 32 countries in a single highly configurable and easy to use application.
Vizzion first partnered with INRIX in 2009, when INRIX added Vizzion traffic cameras to its Connected Services platform. “INRIX is a longstanding partner of ours,” said Chris Cooper, President, Vizzion. “I’m pleased to extend our partnership to assisting INRIX in offering some of the most timely and accurate traffic incident data available.”
