Metro Traffic Activates Live Video Traffic Info
New York, NY - Feb 25, 2009 - The Westwood One Metro Traffic division has gone live with a national traffic video network from Traffic Land, providing its traffic reporters access to more than 5,000 live video cameras. The Traffic Land video network enhances Metro Traffic's traffic incident data, speed and flow information, and more than 1,000 experienced traffic reporters and anchors.
The Traffic Land Video Distribution System (VDS), now in use at Metro Traffic Operations Centers, aggregates video from state and local department of transportation cameras nationwide. The system was originally designed for DOT personnel to monitor traffic flow and first responders to increase incident awareness and response effectiveness. By aggregating video from more than 5,000 cameras, Metro Traffic reporters can track roadways simultaneously in their markets. They can also create video catalogs of the most highly traveled routes and monitor them at peak traffic times to give commuters the best, most up-to-date information about how to avoid traffic problems.
