TracknWatch launches live streaming, live tracking app

By

Global smartphone tracking and streaming service TracknWatch has launched a free Live Streaming – Live Tracking app, designed to allow users to live stream directly from their smart devices and subsequently share the video with anyone across the globe.

US-based TracknWatch — primarily designed for emergency services — says the app automatically uploads users’ live stream video to a dedicated website within seconds.

GPS tracking and live streaming are technologies that have been deployed in different fields, particularly for emergency situations.

And according to TracknWatch, it has become even more imperative to use such technologies in other aspects and while several technology-driven solutions providers have developed a wide range of products and services, many of the available solutions have not been able to meet the needs of users.

“This is where TracknWatch is looking to make a huge difference with the launch of the mobile app,” the company says.

TracknWatch’s Adrian Francis says the phone app is designed to allow registered users to live stream videos with their mobile phones to a web based map whilst their position is being displayed second by second.

“The live streams are automatically recorded, while also allowing the users to upload their live stream to the website within seconds so it can be viewed by anyone across the world. Media Stations can also be authorised to download the uploaded videos with the click of a couple of buttons,” he says.

According to Francis, the free app is already being tested with the Tornado chasers across the USA and has been yielding great results, with viewers watching them chase the tornado on the web based map whilst they are sending live video.

Some of the applications of TracknWatch include Live Streaming, Live Tracking, and Live Streaming Security, and Francis says the Tracknwatch Live Streaming and Tracking system is also available as a stand alone and totally secure system for corporations or government agencies.
