Traffic Streaming Benefits All

The value of traffic reports to commuters in a hurry is obvious. But to government this information is vital - in real-time for assessing emergency route availability - and in archived formats as a means of learning the rhythm and movement of traffic to plan road improvements and more.

As the public increasingly accesses the Internet at broadband speeds, vital news such as real-time traffic reports streamed to the Internet and mobile devices will provide exceedingly high value, especially when compared to traditional reports. Streaming format video conveys far more information than still frame cameras. The advantages of streaming for government entities, broadcasters, notably local affiliates and their audiences, with real-time traffic reports, is significant.
