Digital Barriers has partnered with Vodafone’s innovation centre, Tomorrow Street, to deliver real-time bodycam, vehicle and safe city solutions to smartphones on Vodafone’s global network.

The partnership with Luxembourg-based Tomorrow Street means Vodafone customers – both consumer and enterprise – can convert wireless video streaming into meaningful intelligence.

Digital Barriers, which originally designed technology for the defence sector before migrating into commercial security applications, specialises in enabling high quality live video streaming at ultra-low bandwidths.

Its streaming platform, EdgeVis Live, can deliver encrypted real-time video at a data transfer rate below 10kbps. Based on patented TVI video compression technology, it achieves bandwidth savings of more than 50% compared to similar rival technologies.

EdgeVis Live is already used by government and commercial organisations in more than 40 countries.

“This partnership demonstrates yet again that Luxembourg has the ability to attract and develop excellent talent, with a national ecosystem that provides the perfect platform for breakthrough ideas and innovation across the EU and the globe,” said Warrick Cramer, CEO of Tomorrow Street.

Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, said: “With such increasing demand for this kind of IoT capability at the moment, we believe this is the perfect time to be joining the Tomorrow Street and Vodafone families, combining our unique technologies with their unique reach right around the world. We are really looking forward to working with Tomorrow Street to further accelerate our international growth.”

Launched in September 2017, Tomorrow Street is a joint venture between the Vodafone Procurement Company (VPC) and Technoport (Luxembourg’s national incubator) that develops services via Vodafone’s cellular network targeted at start-ups. Research is particularly focused on the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity.
