Total Traffic & Weather Network partners with Vizzion to power its live traffic camera service
New partnership will further enhance TTWN’s award-winning traffic offerings by integrating Vizzion’s nationwide live traffic camera network
Total Traffic & Weather Network (TTWN), the leading provider of traffic, weather, news and sports content in the United States, today 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 nationwide 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 solutions 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.
“Providing our broadcast radio and television affiliates with industry-leading data and content is a top priority,” said Kevin Loftus, SVP of Operations for Total Traffic & Weather Network. “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 adds, “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.”
