An intelligent video surveillance system has been developed to improve passenger safety on public transport.
SharpView Rugged from technology developers EyeLynx, part of the Zaun Group, has been approved to stringent EU environmental standards EN50121, 50155 and 61373 for use on rail carriages and emergency vehicles. Military grade units complying with MIL-STD-810 are available on request.
SharpView Rugged consists of SharpView Manager Professional security management software and the SVR-5716NR network video recorder, which is a rugged unit with 16 inputs enabled, eight of which are direct Power over Ethernet (PoE) for HD cameras and up to 4TB hard disk storage drives. Storage is also possible to external USB drives.
SharpView systems can record and manage multi-megapixel and HD video evidence from an unlimited number of CCTV cameras. Alarms are also recorded from other security devices, such as facial recognition, intruder and fire sensors.
Built on the latest Enterprise class Linux operating system, the SharpView recording engine delivers the fastest storage and retrieval performance in the industry. All units record network IP video of any resolution, frame rate and compression formats including; M-JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264.
It supports a variety of digital I/O and devices connected over USB, Ethernet and RS 232/422/485. GPS tracking and wireless connectivity is also supported.
EyeLynx chief executive officer Jay Patel said: “SharpView Rugged will allow train operators to gather vital evidence in beyond-HD quality which is indisputable, leading to convictions and certain prosecutions. Passengers will therefore gain a sense of safety on public transport knowing that criminals cannot operate in the transport network without getting caught.”
