AUSTRALIAN mobile surveillance solutions provider DTI Group has signed a contract for advanced surveillance systems for 2 fleets of vehicles totalling 168 rail cars operated by Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail).

The award of contract follows a tender process. The systems deployed will provide the customer, Irish Rail, with high-definition, forward- and rear-facing cameras and the very latest DTI designed and manufactured mobile digital recording platform (MDR-6).

The DTI solution chosen by Irish Rail will also be used to record the existing CCTV cameras within the passenger saloons and is supplied with full Wi-Fi, 3G/4G live streaming and GPS capability. The project will also cater for DTI’s comprehensive back-end CCTV management system to centralise and coordinate the CCTV data and allow video evidence and system diagnostics to be recovered from the rail vehicles through an on-line automated CCTV booking system.

"The selection of the DTI solution by Irish Rail is DTI’s first contract in Ireland,” DTI's managing director, Richard Johnson said. “The win further builds on DTI's reputation in Europe and around the world for providing advanced surveillance and information technology solutions and services in the mass transit market.” ♦
