Increased middle Eastern demand for patrol car CCTV

TSS (Traffic Safety Systems) : 28 May, 2008  (Application Story)
Demand for mobile surveillance systems for police patrol vehicles has increased significantly for Traffic Safety Systems in the middle Eastern market
Increased middle Eastern demand for patrol car CCTV
TSS (Traffic Safety Systems) - part of AD Group - has seen increased demand for
its in-vehicle roads policing CCTV solutions in the lucrative Middle East
region over the past 12 months, with enquiries up by an impressive 70%.

The company is currently undertaking a series of intensive trials with police
forces in the region and expects to be able to announce a major order for its
mobile RadarAutoVision system later this month.

Julian Cooke, International Sales Manager for TSS, believes that the upsurge in
interest regarding roads policing - and specifically digital solutions - in the
Middle East can be attributed to a number of factors: 'In little more than a
generation the region has witnessed a major transformation in its
infrastructure with hundreds of miles of new motorways and trunk roads. The
fact that countries in the Middle East tend to be towards the top of road death
and injury league tables has also resulted in a pressing requirement for
improved traffic management, particularly when it comes to addressing excessive
and inappropriate speed and other, potentially, dangerous driver behaviour.

'As most police forces in the Middle East are adopting CCTV, in the context of
roads policing, for the very first time they have the opportunity to bypass
older analogue systems and go straight to more flexible and capable digital
CCTV solutions, which offer extensive benefits in terms of in-car operation and
image retrieval.'

The digital CCTV system which TSS typically supplies to police forces in the
Middle East is RadarAutoVision. Once fitted in a police car, this solution is
able to integrate accurate speed measurement with digital CCTV evidence of a
target vehicle that has exceeded the speed limit or committed other traffic
violations. The system comes with NetVu ObserVer video management software
which allows users to readily view and copy images from the Radar AutoVision's
removable hard drive. There is also the potential for it to be used in a
stationary or moving vehicle and to monitor offenders travelling towards or
away from the police car.
