Central management of digital video recording.

Visual Defence : 11 July, 2007  (New Product)
Reduced cabling costs and improved mobile video management from centralised DVR system.
Visual Defence has completed the integration of its IP Mobile Digital Video Storage Solution (IP DVSSm) with its Virtual Matrix System (VMS) software module, creating a centrally managed environment for mobile storage devices. The solution is designed to create a durable, comprehensive, and easy-to-use Digital Video recording environment, allowing for decreased cabling costs and enhanced video management when compared to traditional stand-alone Digital Video recorders.

The IP DVSSm provides high-quality video for surveillance, liability
management and event/emergency response within dynamic environments,
increasing knowledge and efficiency dramatically for public transit systems,
or any firm with a fleet of vehicles to monitor. The integration of the IP
DVSSm with the VMS software module provides central station operators with
enhanced video management capabilities including the ability to remotely
protect and tag specific video for downloading.

Video recorded on vehicles can be downloaded by removing the hard drive,
with a direct Ethernet connection or remotely over IP networks such as WiFi.
Once downloaded into the central system, the video can be encrypted, or
viewed and stored for investigative purposes. The VMS recognizes the source
of downloaded video, including the specific camera number of a particular
vehicle, making it very easy to manage a vast amount of video.

'Efficient use of video data has become an important part of both routine
operations and a well-coordinated response to emergency situations in many
kinds of transportation systems,' said Anne MacFarland, Director of Data
Strategies and Information Solutions at The Clipper Group. 'Real-time
recording, quick downloads over IP networks, the ability to quickly and
remotely isolate key portions of video, and encryption are all key parts of
a system that can both capture what happened in a crisis and provide
operational data for logistics optimisation.'

Featuring a front-locking panel that protects its internal electronics, the
watertight and dustproof recorder is resistant to extreme vibration and
temperatures and is ideally suited for use within trains and buses.
Decreased cabling costs are realized by connecting IP cameras directly to
the IP DVSSm using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), thereby eliminating the need
to run separate camera and power connections. When VMS connectivity via a
wireless network is available, the DVSSm can work live and enable central
command to view each and every bus online. Additionally, a video metadata
mechanism allows for integration of video with bus subsystems including
scheduling and dispatch, GPS tracking and fare collection.

IP DVSSm also acts as a platform for other (non-security) video
applications, enabling clients to converge applications by using the system
not only for security, but also for content delivery, as a way to generate
additional revenue and/or communicate with passengers. Advertisements and
messages can be stored in the system and programmed to play at specific
times or locations.

'Increasingly, top security personnel find it necessary to demonstrate
significant ROI from security infrastructure installations,' said Dagan
Sadeh, CEO for Visual Defence. 'Digital video management solutions like the
DVSSm, with cost-saving PoE connections and applications beyond
surveillance, provide transportation organizations with both the enhanced
security and measurable ROI they require.'

As a vehicle-mounted Digital Video recorder with 8 network ports, a
removable hard drive, IP-61 compliancy and 6 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
connections, IP DVSSm provides a flexible, expandable and centrally managed
mobile recording solution. DVSSm is also available in an analog version.
