The holiday season is coming up and it is usually a time when a number of people are looking to see their families. For some people such as inmates at correctional facilities, seeing family is one of the more fulfilling activities. While inmates can talk to their family members on the phone and/or have them visit, there is an alternative that is more beneficial. Securus Technologies has introduced a new service known as video visitation. This allows inmates to talk on the phone and be shown on a screen. It also enables inmates to see their family members at home. With this particular service options, inmates and their families will have a more personalized way to communicate.

 

With video visitation, correctional facility inmates will have the opportunity to make a call and access a computerized screen that shows them. At the same time, the family members of the inmate will be onscreen to see them. As a result, both parties will have the ability to not only talk to each other, but also see them as well. During the conversation, the two parties can see how they are doing and get a perspective on their daily lives. This option can allow family members to show things to the inmate such as a new toy, new appliance and also any awards that were recently received. Therefore, video visitation provides both inmates and their families with a more satisfying way to communicate and interact during the holidays.

Securus Responds to GTL Claims

Securus, a correctional communications company, prides itself in providing cutting edge products coupled with high quality service. The company has responded to a press released that was sent by Global Tel Link that makes misleading and outright inaccurate claims about patents.

 

Many of the allegations are with regards to patents and legal infringement. GTL has made claims that the courts are backing them on many of their allegations on patent infringement. They know patent law can take many years and millions to do, so Securus is wondering why they are pursuing these cases at all. Some of the claims made by GTL are that Securus seek out suing companies that use their patented technology. This statement is not true. Securus attempts to reach reasonable agreements with companies that seek to use their patented technology, even GTL. GTL also claim they are months away from receiving court backing on infringement Richard A Smith has issued a challenge to GTL that they have yet to answer. He would be happy to put both their technologies next to each other to compare. GTL continues to make claims about Securus and the patents that just are misleading or untrue.
