Reality MobileÂ® Unveils RealityVisionÂ® 3.1 – Extending Mobile Collaboration
HERNDON, Va., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Reality MobileÂ®, a Virginia-based technology company delivering enterprise-class real-time mobile video collaboration solutions, today announced the availability of RealityVisionÂ® 3.1. Continuing its commitment to provide enterprise customers with open, flexible options for their mobile video requirements, RealityVision 3.1 offers, among other features, full support for the current generation of iPhoneÂ® and iPadÂ®.
Since Apple introduced iPad, both enterprises and consumers have avidly embraced the newest mobile form factor–Apple recently said more than 80% of Fortune 100 companies are either currently using or testing iPads within their organizations. These devices can be now leveraged by RealityVision users to create and share real-time video to and from the mobile edge.
“Reality Mobile has built a powerful and important enterprise software platform based on our extensive experience and understanding of how mobile video collaboration is used within government agencies and enterprise organizations. Our support for Apple iPad and iPhone for RealityVision users marks an exciting milestone in our company history, ” said David Kramer, CEO of Reality Mobile.
The RealityVision software platform extends real-time situational awareness and the delivery of mission and business critical information to and from the mobile edge, over COTS hardware and existing infrastructure. A number of the new features in RealityVision 3.1 spotlight the company’s patented processes and technology surrounding location as a critical source of user context. These technologies empower mobile users to create and share content with each other in dynamic ways – creating a new category of mobile content and the ability to enhance it with location-based information and other data. As more users migrate to mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, iPad, iPhone, etc.), these patented technologies extend their ability to share rich media and other information in real-time.
Brian Geoghegan, Executive Vice President & Chief Product Officer of Reality Mobile, stated, “The future is now when it comes to enterprise mobile video. Today, with RealityVision, every employee and organizational resource can securely access and share the exact visual information they need, at all times and regardless of their location.”
To address these evolving requirements, expanded features and enhancements RealityVision 3.1 represents a much broader collaborative approach that gives users a more powerful way to add their own input to incoming and outgoing video sources. RealityVision 3.1 delivers these new features to users of the Android and iOS platforms; a future release will deliver comparable functionality to RealityVision users on Windows Mobile devices.
A tighter correlation among video sources, user input and location information
RealityVision 3.1 gives field users more context while they are watching a feed, either immediately or when they later retrieve it from their personal history log. If the stream has associated location information, the field user will be able to view that information in a variety of ways. Similarly, if the available video source has text tags, the device user will be able to visualize them as well. The mobile-to-mobile visualization of live video and other streaming data along with the originating location information is a patented process for Reality Mobile – more information about the patented technology and processes can be found on the company’s website.
Extended opportunities for user input
While viewing another device stream–whether pushed from the Console operator or pulled by the user–the user can access and add to existing comments or, if there are none, start a new set of comments. The user can do this during the initial viewing, or use the playback controls to find one or more specific frames of interest and insert the comments at that point.
Similarly, the user can access any of his or her prior video feeds at any time and add to existing tags or create new ones, again leveraging the playback controls to pinpoint the tag location in the video metadata.
RealityVision will be available on August 1, 2011 and is available to all existing customers with an active Annual Maintenance and Support contract.
