VIQ Solutions Announces Software Integration with PESA Digital Media System07:30 EDT Wednesday, June 13, 2012MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 13, 2012) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ" or "VIQ Solutions") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) announced today that they have teamed with PESA Switching Systems, Inc. ("PESA") for the integration of PESA's newly released C58 Digital Media System ("C58-DMS") with VIQ's suite of software solutions. PESA is a leading U.S.-based custom design and build manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution."Combined with VIQ's industry-leading Encompass RPC software, the C58-DMS will appeal to numerous vertical markets with advanced audio-video needs," says David Outhwaite, President and Chief Executive Officer of VIQ Solutions. "The integrated PESA-VIQ solution is unmatched in the marketplace and meets the growing demand for more sophisticated audio and video capture and management requirements at a competitive price point."Designed for justice, military, security and surveillance facilities, the innovative C58-DMS hardware platform captures and combines up to eight channels of audio and five channels of video, independent of format, and delivers synchronized live and on-demand playback. The appliance's agnostic approach to audio and video capture means clients can use a wide range of new or existing capture devices, including IP cameras. Previously, deploying mixed digital media in mixed formats required a complex integration of multiple components and multiple vendors, resulting in higher acquisition and maintenance costs and limited scalability. With the C58-DMS, all hardware devices are integrated into a single system, regardless of format type, which reduces costs and eliminates synchronization and latency issues for playback.As a development partner with PESA, VIQ Solutions is the only computer-based digital audio and video capture provider able to integrate with the C58-DMS. When deployed with VIQ's Encompass RPC software, a single operator can quickly and easily control the capture, playback and storage of audio and video from multiple locations. The sophisticated, integrated solution provides advanced capture and management capabilities, all from a single source.The C58-DMS is being officially unveiled in the PESA booth (N1327) at InfoComm 2012, which runs June 13 - 15 in Las Vegas, Nevada. VIQ Solutions will also be demonstrating the C58-DMS at the International Association for Court Administration in The Hague, Netherlands.About VIQ SolutionsVIQ Solutions is a global leader in computer-based digital audio and video capture and management.
