Communications Research Awarded Municipal Video Surveillance Project
MAHWAH, N.J., Sept. 29, 2003 (PRIMEZONE)-- Communications Research, Inc. (Pink Sheets:CRHI) announced they have been awarded a municipal video surveillance project based on a unique application of digital technology. The system solution developed by and awarded to Communications Research is the first ever known to use a high speed Internet interconnection from a local cable TV provider to transmit video signals, within a municipality, to a local police station for monitoring using IP (Internet Protocol) standards for dedicated permanent link connections. Recently having tested the approach, the successful implementation of this system is likely to lead to project awards nationally since it revolutionizes the cost structure for distant video monitoring and control. While not part of this initial deployment, the system also has the ability to include one or two way paging, remote video control and alarm activation, all in band with the video stream.
