Unlike most auto dealerships that people are accustomed to, Lexus of Lakeway doesn’t have rows upon rows of cars parked in what seems like an unending landscape of asphalt. The community of Lakeway has very exacting standards when it comes to the architectural features of the surrounding businesses and the dealership was no different. As part of an effort to be aesthetically pleasing to the town and its residents, Lexus of Lakeway was built vertically and features multiple levels complete with rooftop parking, resembling something more akin to a resort than a contemporary dealership. The cars that are visible on the ground are spread among the hills and surrounding property so as to keep the facility from appearing like a cluttered car lot.

Many government and commercial organizations want to be able to easily stream video from a single point to many receivers over the public Internet. For instance, a large traffic accident on a freeway may have video from traffic cameras, video from news helicopters, and video from patrol cars all coming back to a central command site. Incident commanders at that central site want to send these video sources back out to all first responders, over the Internet, to their smart phones, in-vehicle computers, and tablet devices.
