Orlando, USA, October 01, 2007: MultiVision USA announced that SunGard HTE Inc. has developed a MultiVision 3D Plus interface for its OSSI Public Safety Suite computer-aided dispatch (CAD) software. The interface enables public safety dispatchers and emergency response personnel to view MultiVision oblique aerial photography on their OSSI CAD systems.
The new SunGard OSSI interface allows the OSSI CAD, CAD Resource Monitor (CRM), and Mobile Communications Terminal (MCT) to pass coordinate information received during a 911 call to the MultiVision viewing application, which then processes and displays the appropriate oblique aerial imagery of the location onscreen. As a result, police and rescue crews working with laptops in their vehicles can easily find landmarks to help them reach an emergency scene more quickly, and can plan their positioning more efficiently in the case of fires, hostage situations, and other emergencies. The photography helps crews identify the locations of fire hydrants, entrances to the building, and terrain around the location.
Tom Hilton, QA Manager at SunGard said, “We’re pleased to add this interface to our OSSI software. By integrating MultiVision USA’s detailed 3D photography, we’re providing an integrated tool to the first responder that will allow them to better serve their community. MultiVision USA photography allows them to get a better feel for what the property is like, so they can make critical decisions more quickly and effectively. Now, dispatchers and responders alike can view this valuable information with a simple click of a button.”
