New traffic video detection system will enable traffic professionals to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow and safety.

SAINT PAUL, MN /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISNS) and partner Econolite are pleased to introduce Autoscope Terra, a new generation of easy-to-use Autoscope video detection solutions. A myriad of significant technology advances make this one of the most sophisticated traffic video detection products in the world. Collectively, these exciting innovations are being marketed as Terra technology.

"Autoscope Terra technology is a major breakthrough which exceeds the processing power and flexibility required for applications in the markets we serve," said Jim Murdakes, Image Sensing Systems' Chairman and CEO. "We continue to push the envelope to give customers better service and the Autoscope Terra product family, based on state-of-the-art imaging technology, is a good example of that."

Autoscope Terra simplifies installation, setup, monitoring and operation, while at the same time boosting processing power for transportation solutions. All of this is made possible by leveraging the Autoscope's proven detection algorithms with a leading edge dual-core DSP and logic processor. Each Autoscope Terra system includes Ethernet connectivity, streaming MPEG-4 video, a web-based software interface and a host of other valuable features.
