In order to make critical decisions based on video, what is required? Reliability, quality and low latency. The police in London do not make a decision based on video alone, because in the past other live streaming units have had a latency of 3-4 seconds which is too long for a critical decision as things could have changed in that short time. The Soliton Zao has a minimum latency of 240ms which gives the added flexibility of making more decisions on video alone.
Soliton has a background in broadcast and broadcasters get very upset if video drops frames. They demand reliability and high quality even in the most challenging of situations. Soliton’s Zao-s can utilize up to 3 different SIM cards from 3 different cellular providers and will bond them all together as a single connection. In addition, it will then dynamically monitor the strength of each cellular network and effectively carve up the video down each cellular provider for increased reliability and performance. As an extra layer of security, the video stream can be AES256 encrypted. The Zao can support up to 6 SIM cards.
The Zao range of products is the only solution that can do a point-to-point transmission without the need for a third-party cloud solution that could be hosted, unbeknown to the user, anywhere in the world and is a huge security risk. The Zao solutions, coupled with the encryption, gives an extra layer of security and streams directly to the receiving location.
