NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TIE Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets:TTCS), a diverse technology holding company focused on proprietary smart logistics, environmental and disaster remediation, telemetrics, and advanced IT solutions, today announced that Whirlwind Media Services' award-winning video production team has completed and launched a micro documentary that introduces the TriplePlay product and its role in providing relief to disaster victims.

The video references the Katrina, Haiti and Sri Lanka disasters witnessing The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs assertions that "Emergency relief tends to focus on time-critical life saving activities; the presence of a suitable water supply, conditions necessary for adequate sanitation, and secure shelter are the three most essential factors following a disaster" and "Shelter was not provided at scale; water became contaminated and sanitation solutions were inadequate."

Jack Campbell, Whirlwind Media's Chief Creative Officer and producer of the video, said: "When writing the storyboard for this piece we wanted to drive home the point that tragically, hundreds of thousands of disaster affected people have died or been stricken with a life threatening disease because of the delays in delivering the much needed relief to these displaced victims. The bottom line of our message is that in the future critical relief such as a clean water supply, an adequate sanitation and sewage processing system and secure shelters must be supplied to the impacted area quickly."

This video production is an example of Whirlwind's multimedia products being employed to maximize customers' search engine profile, differentiate themselves from the competition and drive greater ecommerce sales. Come view the TriplePlay video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM_aZMRWK5g

Mark Marangella, President of Smart Environmental Systems (SES), a Division of Tie Technologies, said,"Working with Jack and his Whirlwind Media team is always a professional and rewarding experience as was exemplified by SES's earlier OilDam™ product introduction video, and now again by our cooperative production of the Company's kickoff video on our 'Triple Play' product."

The Triple Play Quick Disaster Response solution integrates the three most essential disaster relief requirements, Clean Water, Sewage Treatment and Shelter, into a single package. The 'Triple Play' can be provided upon short notice and delivered by land, sea or air to the affected area and quickly assembled by local personnel.'Triple Play' components are all solar powered and, with the option of embedded Tri-Smart™ monitoring sensors, can transmit critical operating and location status data, via low-earth orbiting satellites, to monitoring centers anywhere in the World. SES is teaming with AGT, a leading manufacturer of geo-synthetic bladders, in offering the 'Triple Play' solution to global disaster relief agencies.
