Los Gatos, Calif. – October 1, 2009 – Firetide Inc., the leading developer of wireless infrastructure mesh networks, today announced that it will demonstrate its new MIMO 802.11n mesh technology as part of a wireless IP video surveillance demo during the IACP Conference. Already in deployment at the Miami Police Department, the Firetide MIMO mesh delivers cost-effective, flexible wireless networks and offers fiber-equivalent performance for real-time, courtroom-quality video.

The conference demo combines MIMO wireless infrastructure mesh from Firetide with high-definition network camera technology from Axis Communications and open-platform video management from Milestone Systems. Deployed in a matter of hours, the system is a real-world example of what public safety agencies can achieve in the field with the right combination of IP technologies, delivering evidence-grade video for officer safety, identification and investigation.

THE DEMO: The live demonstration will feature wireless capture, distribution and playback of high-resolution video over a wireless mesh network. Real-time video from Axis high-definition and megapixel cameras will be streamed over Firetide wireless infrastructure mesh network. The video will be captured and displayed using the open-platform Milestone video management system, including remote viewing via Wi-Fi enabled PDAs. 

LOCATION: The demonstration will take place at IACP 2009 in Denver from October 4 through October 6 on the Firetide booth 2912. 
EDITOR ALERT: Interested media are invited to set up an in-person interview with the Sandy Utah Police Department during the conference; PD representatives will be available to discuss Sandy’s wireless video surveillance system in operation since 2008.
