The leading provider of traffic, transit, and weather information in the USA, Total Traffic & Weather Network (TTWN), has announced a partnership with Vizzion, supplier of the world’s largest traffic camera network, to power the live camera feeds on TTWN’s online and mobile traffic platforms.
The partnership will integrate Vizzion’s network of more than 23,000 live traffic cameras from transportation agencies across the USA into TTWN’s award-winning traffic offerings. The live traffic camera feeds will display alongside TTWN’s real-time traffic speeds and incident data on Sigalert.com, Sigalert and Total Traffic apps, and TTWN’s embedded online systems for its radio and television broadcast partners. The map interface allows users to quickly view traffic cameras by hovering their mouse cursor over the camera icons. The integration of these cameras, provided by Vizzion’s XML Web Service, helps users see how traffic and weather conditions may affect their commute, saving them time and frustration.
TTWN currently reaches more than 196 million monthly listeners across more than 200 markets. With services to nearly 2,000 radio and 200 television affiliates, plus automotive, navigation, internet, mobile and government partners, the company operates the largest traffic data gathering network in the country, staffed with more than 1,200 traffic reporters across North America.
Vizzion is the leading supplier of live traffic camera and hyper-local weather condition feeds for integration into traffic and weather applications and operations centers. The service is available through a flexible XML-based internet service and turnkey Desktop Video Wall software.
“Providing our broadcast radio and television affiliates with industry-leading data and content is a top priority,” said Kevin Loftus, SVP of operations for TTWN. “Integrating Vizzion’s comprehensive network of live traffic cameras increases our nationwide feed coverage by nearly 70%, delivering a superior traffic solution for our media partners, and experience for commuters.”
Vizzion president Chris Cooper added, “TTWN’s digital traffic solutions, including the Sigalert branded web and mobile apps, are one of the most ubiquitous sources of traffic information available online. We’re proud to be selected by TTWN to power their digital traffic camera service, reaching hundreds of media affiliates, and benefiting millions of commuters every month.”
