Irving, TX – February 25, 2008 – EFJ, Inc. (NASDAQ: EFJI) announced today that it will highlight several new products at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) February 26 to 29, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“As part of our continued focus on mission-critical communications and expanding our solutions for first responders, we are introducing several new products at IWCE 2008, including the ES Series Mobile Radio, the Rapid Response Video-to-Vehicle Starter Kit, and an expansion of our systems portfolio,” said Michael E. Jalbert, chairman and chief executive officer of EFJ, Inc. “Our ES Series of mobile radios builds upon the success of the ES portable radios we introduced in August of last year. Key features include: operation in Project 25 trunked and conventional modes, Enhanced Project 25 Vocoder, SMARTNET®/SmartZone® trunking protocols, and support for up to 864 channels/talkgroups. The Rapid Response Video-to-Vehicle Starter Kit enables first responders to set up real-time video surveillance and send live footage of the scene back to a command & control vehicle. The core technology consists of a standards-based, wireless mesh network that configures in seconds, sending live video and data to the command vehicle. One of the accessories we will introduce is a rapid battery charger, which can charge a portable radio battery in an hour. We will also introduce a six-bay charger, a Lithium Ion battery that is extremely lightweight yet has a rugged construction, and a tri-chemistry charger that charges batteries of the three chemistry types (Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride, and Nickel Cadmium) used in land mobile radio batteries.”
In addition, the company will be presenting on interoperability at IWCE College of Technology’s Understanding Radio over IP on Tuesday, February 26, 2008, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon. Presenter is Marty Christensen, director of systems business development.
