March Networks has introduced new mobile IP cameras to its complete transportation solution for bus, light rail and passenger rail fleets. Designed to provide transit operators with improved and more comprehensive surveillance coverage, the megapixel cameras are purpose-built to withstand demanding mobile environments and capture consistently clear video in near darkness, bright daylight and the abrupt lighting transitions that occur when vehicles enter and exit tunnels and underpasses.
The mobile IP cameras are fully integrated with leading March Networks RideSafe Series Network Video Recorders and easily managed with powerful March Networks Command for Transit software. They are ideal for transit operators ready to upgrade from analog to high-definition surveillance video, as well as those seeking highly-reliable cameras certified to withstand the wide temperature ranges, humidity, shock, vibration and other environmental pressures common on mobile vehicles.
All the new mobile cameras also include optional, onboard storage to ensure continuous video recording, even if recorder connectivity is lost due to a power outage.
“An increasing number of transit agencies are transitioning to IP to see high-definition video on their bus and passenger rail fleets, given that it’s now easier and more affordable to download larger amounts of data over wireless networks,” said Dan Cremins, global leader, product management, March Networks. “Our new megapixel cameras support this transition by delivering exceptional video clarity along with the reliability, form factors and mounting options transit vehicles require. These megapixel cameras are best-in-class additions to our complete video solution for mobile and wayside transit environments.”
