TrafficLand to deliver video to Bing Maps
Traffic video application joins mapping site to tame commute
yesterday announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to provide live traffic video for Bing
The largest authorized aggregator of live traffic video in the U.S., TrafficLand developed a Microsoft Silverlight application for Bing Maps that displays live traffic video from thousands of cameras showing traffic and weather conditions, as well as news.
TrafficLand works with state and local government transportation departments in most metropolitan areas, providing traffic camera video hosting and network integration. The company’s Image EngineT technology offers single-source access to live traffic video from TrafficLand's national network.
TrafficLand video formats can be adapted to support mobile applications, traveler information Web sites, TV broadcasts and first responders. The TrafficLand Video Distribution Systems is a dedicated service for transportation and public safety agencies to help them manage traffic and provide emergency response. TrafficLand also offers an XML feed for access to bandwidth-efficient traffic video for broadcast traffic reporting, media Web sites, navigation devices and mobile applications.
