Edison, NJ, March 29, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- IndigoVision, the leading manufacturer of complete IP Video security solutions, is a proud sponsor and IP Video provider for the 2011 "Walk in My Shoes" event, which marks the second year for this walk across Florida. Led by Lauren Book and the Lauren's Kids Foundation, the Walk raises awareness about sexual abuse and urges those who have been abused to speak up, because “it's always okay to tell.”
The 39-day, 1,000-mile journey kicked off in Key West on Saturday, March 19 and will end on Tuesday, April 26 on the steps of the historic Capitol in Tallahassee for the Lauren's Kids ‘Rally in Tally’ at noon. The Rally includes the final mile, Lauren's call to action and memories from the Walk, along with statements from state and local leaders.
IndigoVision has provided one of its 9000 fixed IP cameras, which has been installed on the event tour bus that is following the participants of the walk as they make their journey across Florida. The IP camera is delivering live video via the 3G cellular network to an Internet Streaming Server (ISS) hosted and installed by KB Technologies, another sponsor of the event. The video is then streamed from the server to the website, www.laurenskids.org where visitors can click on the live video link and view the event as it happens.
IndigoVision’s class-leading H.264 compression technology allows 30fps CIF resolution high-quality video to be streamed across the cellular network. The 9000 IP camera is connected directly to 3G modem and firewall on the bus. The video is then transmitted at 128Kbs via a VPN to the ISS at KB Technologies, who also installed the system on the bus. Last year’s event attracted over 1000 viewers at any one time to the site, so a reliable, high-quality video stream is important for the success of this year’s event, which is hoped, will be even more watched.
“IndigoVision enables communities to run smarter through technology, but we also strive to help reinforce the fabric that strengthens them,” said Kevin Bradley, IndigoVision’s President - North America. “Being part of events such as ‘Walk In My Shoes’ and last year's Santa Monica Marathon, simply reinforces our dedication and commitment to these efforts.”

About Lauren’s Kids
Lauren’s Kids’ mission is to prevent sexual abuse through awareness and education, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support. Lauren Book, founder of Lauren's Kids, was a victim of childhood sexual abuse for six years at the hands of her nanny. Armed with the knowledge that 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable through education, Lauren has worked to turn her horrific personal experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and heal survivors by starting Lauren's Kids. Lauren's Kids encourages victims to "shine a light in dark places" and "shed the shame." Lauren's Kids is based in South Florida and educates adults and children about sexual abuse topics through in-school curriculum, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline and speaking engagements around the country. Lauren's Kids holds an annual, statewide "Walk in My Shoes" event, which brings together survivors and advocates on a walk across Florida to raise awareness and promote supportive legislation.
