A new product introduced recently in India is changing the way the video streaming was done till now. Earlier we would see a sea of vehicles with dish antenna mounted on them with small sized generators and two to six technicians at hand to prepare a platform to record an incident at a particular spot be it a house of politician or scene of happening. Such scenes were also common in pictures like “Peepli Live” wherein dish mounted vehicles with crew would reach a spot of hot activity in a small distant village. This all is going to change now.

A new product for security forces has come to India
Earlier only the TV channels were privy to live breaking news or other live streaming of programs but now the security forces of Central Government and State Governments can use this technology and improve their capability of handling law & order situations in their respective area of coverage/states.
The dependability of intelligence and security services on media/TV channels shall diminish once they have their own live video streaming arrangements. As composed to the existing system of live Video Streaming by TV channels the cost of new system by this company are merely a fraction of existing systems.
Another feature of this AVIWEST system is that it can send videos or record & send videos directly to consumer without involving any third party as compared to the previous/existing systems which worked through a server of the third party deployed in a third/other Country. Through this the video recorded by TV Channel go to the server located in a third country and then sent to the TV channels. Therefore all the streamed data can be used/mis-used in the third country and the chances of its leakage could be pretty high whereas in this system the videos are sent directly to the server owned by the company or say the security force where it is 100% secure from their point of view. It therefore is a very safe system for them.
Adopting new technologies can definitely save time and money but also increase their depenedability.
