For bus, and light & passenger rail fleets
March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, 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.
The Mobile ME4 IR MicDome combines 4MP resolution with high dynamic range (HDR) and powerful infrared (IR) LEDs to capture sharp, detailed images in varied lighting. Packaged in a small, durable housing, the camera incorporates a built-in microphone and is IP66 (weatherproofing), SAE J1455 and EN50155 (shock and vibration) and IK10 (vandal-resistance) certified.
The Mobile HDR Forward Facing camera can be mounted on a dashboard or ceiling and comes with an optional, anti-glare cone to minimize windshield glare and reflection. Its combination of HDR and 3MP resolution ensures exceptionally clear video, while features such as a weatherproof, vandal-resistant (IP67/ IK10) aluminum housing make it ideal for rugged transit applications.
The Mobile HDR Wedge is designed to capture high-definition 3MP video from the exterior of a bus or passenger rail train. The camera includes built-in heaters and vents to prevent condensation and fogging, a weatherproof vandal-resistant (IP67/ IK10) housing, and SAE J1455 and EN50155 certifications.
The Evolution 05 mini panel mount and Evolution 05 mini outdoor cameras introduce advanced 360-degree surveillance to March Networks’ transportation solution via a strategic partnership with Oncam®, the leader in 360-degree technology. With 5MP sensors and no moving parts, the cameras are EN50155 certified, come with multiple mounting options, are available in black or white models, and are fully integrated with March Networks Command software for powerful client-side de-warping.
All 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.”
Drawing on more than a decade of experience working with transportation agencies worldwide, March Networks’ proven video solution provides bus, para-transit, light rail and passenger rail operators with comprehensive oversight across their entire operation – including on transit vehicles, and in stations, depots and park-and-rides. The intelligent solution enables operators to maintain the highest security for passengers and employees, respond quickly to emergency situations, and resolve liability claims faster and more cost-effectively with integrated case management and vehicle metadata evidence.
