Video Surveillance iPhone app wins Edison Award for Innovation

Lextech Labs credits Milestone open platform commitment

Lisle, IL , May 5, 2010 -- Lextech Labs’ iRa C3™ video surveillance software won a Bronze Edison Award for Best New Technology Product on Thursday, April 29th in New York City. The award is presented to honor product innovation in the spirit of Thomas Edison.


“Winning the Edison Technology Award is validation that Lextech Labs has delivered a solution that is protecting lives and changing the way today's and tomorrow's surveillance systems are used. iRa C3 has unlocked the full potential of video surveillance by distributing realtime video to the people that need it the most. This recognition allows Lextech Labs to stand proud amongst other 2010 Edison winners like Motorola, Proctor and Gamble and 3M,” said Jeff Gibson, President of Lextech Labs.


iRa C3 is the preferred mobility viewing and control solution for security and crisis response teams throughout the world. iRa C3 products provide realtime situational awareness to facilitate communication and time-sensitive decision making. 

"Lextech's innovation recognition was, in a large part, made possible because of Milestone's commitment to open software systems and publication of open interface standards. The Milestone IP video management software platform has enabled an entire ecosystem of innovative solutions to complement Milestone's core video management platform. Our iRa C3 solution offering now shares common ground among previous Edison Award winners like the Nintendo Wii and the Apple iPhone," stated Alex Bratton, CEO of Lextech Labs.

Apps are available for the iPad™, iPhone, iPod touch® and will soon be released for the Blackberry®.  UNIX®, Linux®, Mac® and Microsoft Windows® based web browsers also serve as team viewing platforms. iRa C3 was developed by the award-winning Lextech Global Services engineering team.
