Presentation on benefits of wireless surveillance

Vemotion Interactive : 05 March, 2015  (Company News)
The Passenger Transport and Executive Group has hosted Vemotion CEO to hear about the latest trends in wireless networks for video surveillance
Presentation on benefits of wireless surveillance

In February, CEO of Vemotion, Stewart McCone delivered a presentation of mobile CCTV technology to the Passenger Transport and Executive Group (PTEG) aimed at demonstrating the role effective video transmission could play in enhancing both driver and passenger safety and bring other operational benefits.

Invited by Centro Crime Reduction Manager and chair of PTEG Safety and Security Group Mark Babington, Stewart gave the group an insight into Vemotion and the versatility and power of its wireless video transmission solutions. PTEG promotes six transport bodies serving over 11 million people and acts as a wider professional network for Britain’s largest urban transport authorities. Stewart used his presentation to the PTEG team to dispel some popular and enduring myths in connection with CCTV.

“The focus with CCTV tends to be on fixed installations, but as I aimed to demonstrate to the PTEG team, it is so much more than that,” said Stewart McCone, CEO of Vemotion. “CCTV could be a valuable tool in delivering improvements in driver and passenger safety, for example and I am grateful to Mark for giving me the opportunity to shine a light not just on Vemotion, but to consider wireless video transmission solutions in the wider transport context and not just in terms of parking enforcement in bus lanes.”

Leading the unique Safer Travel Partnership, Mark Babington brought West Midlands Police, British Transport Police and a private security contractor into an intelligence led operational team, reducing crime on the network by two thirds - but work remains to be done, hence inviting Stewart to speak about the technology.

“As the Safer Travel Partnership has faced the realities of austerity, we have developed an innovative approach which has seen an increase of frontline staff whilst reducing revenue expenditure by 25%,” said Mark Babington. “In my role as the National chair of PTEG safety and Security, mobile CCTV does have a role to play and I would like to thank Stewart for coming and giving us the benefit of his insight and know-how.”

Based in North Yorkshire, Vemotion specialise in wireless video transmission and developing intuitive solutions for town centre management, crowd control, mobile and deployable CCTV challenges. Having proven their expertise at significant global outdoor events in 2014 including Yorkshire stages of the Tour de France and the Commonwealth Games – Vemotion products are used nationally and internationally.

“Vemotion transmission technologies can be a much more subtle tool than is often appreciated and making the case before thought leaders like PTEG is essential,” added Stewart. We have now been able to introduce the Vemotion brand into the higher echelons of several industries. PTEG get the message, which matters when speaking to such an influential body when it comes to national policy, but we need to use this as a platform to get others to see Vemotion in greater perspective, by considering strategy as much as product. We stand ready to help PTEG and others achieve their objectives in a cost-effective manner.”

“Our main priorities are to promote the exchange of knowledge across the PTEG network,” added Mark. “We raise awareness of the key transport challenges facing city regions but we also look at the solutions our members are implementing too. Mobile CCTV is one of the ways we can look at reducing expenditure by doing more for less and while bus shelter cameras proved a great success, driver and passenger safety will always be prime considerations as part of our Public Transport Crime Reduction Toolkit.”

Vemotion transmission technologies have also been used to deter fly tipping in Bromley, tackle anti-social behaviour in Wakefield and for other specific local transmission challenges faced by local authorities and agencies. The easy-to-install and implement nature of Vemotion’s wireless transmission systems means that CCTV images can be accessed from any device, even with a low bandwidth connection allowing seamless communications and response times the like of which the CCTV industry has never seen before.
