Minneapolis Sees Wi-Fi Streaming Video Demo

By Glenn Fleishman

The city of Minneapolis will soon chose which of two finalists will build its metro-scale network: One firm, US Wireless, demonstrated a common public-safety application, showing streaming video from a surveillance camera depicting a robbery streaming to a police car as officers head toward the scene. The service would cost $6,000 per car and $1,000 per camera, and run over Wi-Fi. The city hasn’t committed to whether they’d roll out this service, and some privacy experts are concerned about the proliferation of surveillance cameras. Existing fixed-wire cameras in Minneapolis have led to a 100-percent conviction rate from about 500 arrests over 18 months.
