How video surveillance is revolutionizing transit system security.

Posted by Luke Upton on Mar 31, 2016

Multi-screen_imagesIt’s a sad fact of the world we live in at the moment that escalating threats, security breaches and attacks require implementation of the highest transit system security possible. A key element in making mass transit more secure is video surveillance. And deployed effectively it can also help improve operator efficiency, cut costs and enhance the overall passenger experience by reducing delays or disruptions to service from unforeseen mechanical breakdowns, track obstructions or just traffic congestion.

Today SmartRail World is partnering with industry leader Kontron to bring you an exclusive free White Paper on Advancing Transit System Security.

Hampering security system advancements are current fragmented, proprietary video surveillance technology solutions. Enabling a new generation of data driven, intelligent video surveillance is a commercial off the shelf (COTS), application-ready transportation computing technologies.

Video_Surveillance_WP_screen_shot.jpgWith Kontron COTS network video recorders (NVRs) and other transportation-centric platforms, developers can easily customize and configure smarter solutions that deliver real-time data analytics and remote system monitoring.  Based on open computing architectures, these platforms not only maximize existing transit agency infrastructure investments, they also help prepare operators for future infrastructure efficiency improvements such as the Internet of Things (IoT). 

Download this White Paper to learn how:

  • How feature-rich IoT solutions are revolutionizing video surveillance leading to more secure transportation systems
  • Further details on solutions to help operators and their suppliers implement massively-connected real-time information systems much more quickly and at far less cost than ever before
  • The role of advanced computing platforms and video management software in expanding security capabilities
  • Ways to future-proof large network management solutions preparing for the new era of the ‘connected train’
  • And much more...Download the White Paper to learn more and equip yourself  against these challenges.
