How many times has someone said, “if they could only see what I see” when trying to convey verbally to another person what’s going on around them? That’s because using words to paint a mental image of what’s happening at that moment can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience.

Whether someone is a shopping mall security guard watching a food fight grow, an HVAC technician experiencing problems with a new install procedure or an EMT dealing with a critical patient, the ability to stream video in real time is the key to increasing the speed and clarity of their communications.

Compliant with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Mission Critical Video (MCVideo) standard, WAVE PTX Streaming Video makes it possible for users to push live video to individuals, groups, or dispatchers. The result is increased situational awareness for dispatchers, supervisors, and other recipients because they have a real time view of events and activities as they happen.

To stream video to a group, the originator selects the talkgroup for the video call. To start the group call, the originator again taps the video icon located to the left of the PTT button. Streaming starts when the first member of the talkgroup accepts the incoming video call, and the stream is available to any member of the group that is configured to receive group video. Please note that originators can make a streaming video call to a talkgroup even if they are not configured to receive group video calls.

For both individual and group streaming, the PTT call audio and video audio can be mixed, or the PTT call audio can have priority. In addition, the originator has the option of choosing which camera, front, or rear, to broadcast. The originator can also tap the video call screen to minimize the video and tap the microphone icon to mute or unmute the audio sent with the live video stream.


The optional Streaming Video feature allows WAVE PTX broadband PTT mobile users to push live H.264 video, with audio, from their device’s integrated camera(s). The streaming video recipients can be any assigned contacts or groups that are capable of receiving video calls. Each video session can have just a single originator, and each participant can have only one active video call at a time.

To stream video to an individual, the originator taps the Contacts button to display the list of contacts and selects the one with whom to start a video call. To start the one-to-one video call, the originator taps the video icon located to the left of the on-screen PTT button. When the contact accepts the incoming video call, streaming begins. To end the streaming video call, either the originator or recipient can tap the end call button.


Whether you are an undercover officer in need of assistance during an arrest, a utility worker injured at a remote job site, or an EMT dealing with a hallucinating patient, you need priority communication with those who can help at the touch of a button.

Compliant with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) standard, Emergency Calling and Alerting from Motorola Solutions makes it possible for those in immediate danger to quickly communicate with the individuals or groups who can provide assistance. With the push of a button, users can declare an emergency to ensure that all broadband PTT communication is immediately routed, with the highest priority, to the designated individual or group. The result is enhanced worker safety, particularly for those working alone.
