Catalyst had a very successful IWCE with new announcements for both hardware and software innovations. During the show, we made a video highlighting what was shown at our booth. If you were not at IWCE, it’s a great way to quickly catch up on what’s new in our world.
We made two versions of our video. The best one is 9 minutes long and it’s a comprehensive overview of what we showed at IWCE. Check it out HERE. For the ADD challenged among us 🙂 the four and a half minute version is HERE.
Today at the APCO Show in Florida we announced that we have a patent pending for our invention of a system to allow an Incident Commander to coordinate personnel from disparate units that are using incompatible and different communication devices.
Our patent application describes an innovative process for combining field deployable dispatch and control of radio systems with various control capabilities of radio communications protocols. We believe that this innovative intellectual property will combine the benefits Catalyst technology with standards based radio communications protocols in a way that will uniquely improve communications between First Responders during an Incident.
The technology is particularly powerful as it includes innovative methods for determining when a target communications device is idle or busy and, if busy, managing the audio to prevent the loss of syllables.
