DTI Group Ltd has received an order for the supply of advanced CCTV surveillance systems for trains in the US city of Philadelphia which are owned and operated by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA). SEPTA oversees transit in the city of Philadelphia and operates over 1,300 buses, 300 regional trains, 26 light rail vehicles and 100 other vehicles.
The order involves the supply of surveillance systems for 231 Silverliner rail vehicles valued at approximately US$578,000. Deliveries for the systems are planned to be completed prior to 30 June 2016.
DTI’s existing and comprehensive back-end CCTV management system in Philadelphia will centralise and coordinate the vehicle CCTV data and allow video evidence to be recovered from the vehicles through an on-line automated CCTV ‘booking’ system providing ongoing benefits through the easy management of equipment, video retrieval and video storage. Each train will be equipped with DTI’s advanced MDR-5L (Mobile Digital Recorder), high resolution colour cameras, integrated wireless infrastructure, accelerometer and GPS-based vehicle location system.
