DTI has received an order from its South African business partner for supply of advanced CCTV surveillance systems for metro police vehicles in South Africa. The initial purchase order valued at approximately $US220,000 involves the supply of surveillance systems on 27 police cars plus additional static equipment to be delivered before the end of June 2016.

DTI successfully partnered in an international tender process involving the supply and installation of up to 900 systems for police vehicles over the next 3 years. Each police car will be equipped with DTI's advanced MDR6 digital surveillance system with integral switching, enhanced dual drive redundancy for system management and data downloads, and a multifunction 3G/4G, 802.11 a/b/g/n ruggedized router to provide live viewing of police car cameras of up to 5 high-definition megapixel cameras. 

The in-car systems are equipped with an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) camera, 7-inch driver’s screen with real-time viewing of hot-listed plates recognised by the ANPR camera, real-time viewing of other on-board cameras, a body-worn wireless microphone with streamed recording and live audio to a control centre and an optional body worn camera with local storage and an option for restreaming to the MDR6.

Along with the supply of the police car systems, static ANPR cameras will be supplied in the future which integrate with the city’s monitoring systems to allow the coordination of vehicle information between static and mobile solutions.

“The award of this project following an international tender process demonstrates DTI’s credentials in providing advanced surveillance and information technology solutions to the law enforcement sector,” said DTI’s managing director, Richard Johnson. 

“Both law enforcement and South Africa are key target markets for DTI, so the award of this project is regarded as a significant milestone for DTI. It is the largest law enforcement contract won by DTI and builds on our recent success in winning important bus and rail contracts.”

DTI provides advanced mobile surveillance systems, solutions and services to a global client list that includes transit agencies, transit operators, freight operators, law enforcement authorities and taxi organisations. The ASX-listed company turned over $A105 million in its last reported financial year. ♦
