xG Technology’s Vislink business entered into an agreement with Panasonic System Solutions Europe to collaborate on projects to bring Vislink's video communications technology to the rail industry.

Vislink's decades-long experience in the design and delivery of reliable, high-quality video transmission systems built to perform in demanding environments brings unique benefits to the rail industry, the company said. Vislink solutions are suited for situations that involve high-speed vehicles, the effects of shock and vibration and challenging RF conditions, which are all typical in rail operations.

"We are pleased to embark on this exciting partnership with Panasonic to introduce our technology to the rail market, where it has the opportunity to significantly improve efficiency of operations, leading to new and better services, enhanced reliability and improved passenger safety,” said James Walton, president of IMT and head of IMT and Vislink operations outside of the Americas.” We have a successful history of working with the team at Panasonic, combining our wireless systems with their broadcast video products for use at many events and installations around the world. By formalizing this partnership, it brings our technical and commercial teams even closer together."

The collaboration with Panasonic leverages Vislink's proficiency in onboard wireless technologies that it has developed for use in demanding, real-time sports broadcasting, as well as mission-critical video solutions for law enforcement, defense and public-safety applications.

For its part, Vislink's collaboration with Panasonic follows its strategy of partnering with tier-one technology providers to jointly identify and pursue business opportunities in targeted vertical markets. In joining forces with Panasonic, Vislink has aligned itself with a leading provider of technology solutions and a major player in the European transportation sector.

"We have a stated aim of providing the connected technology solutions for a safer, more efficient rail industry,” said Tony O'Brien, managing director of Panasonic System Solutions Europe. “We needed to find the right technology partner to help us in this challenging environment and in Vislink, we have found it. Together, we can solve long-standing challenges that the industry faces, such as the ability to offer latency-free surveillance across the rail network. By combining Panasonic's innovative surveillance technology with Vislink's wireless technology this is now a step closer."
