4G to the rescue


The Verizon Wireless booth at CES was packed with technology demonstrations that showed how 4G wireless broadband could be used in a variety of situations.

The case shown here simulates how a headset would be used in a search and rescue event. Responders would be equipped with a small display and camera, so they could share what they see and be directed by each other or from a central manager.

The video screen shows an infrared image that would help rescuers find people in a dark or smoke-filled environment.

Another popular demo showed a "second screen" application where people at or near an event, such as a football game, could get get live stats and additional video feeds from he event.
