DTI Group Ltd (ASX: DTI) (DTI) is pleased to announce that the Board of Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has awarded to DTI contract options for the further supply and installation of advanced CCTV surveillance systems on light rail vehicles (LRVs) operated by the North Texas transit agency.

Each LRV will be equipped with a digital surveillance system, thirteen high-definition six megapixel cameras each providing a 360 degree panoramic view of the passenger area, three transit rated power over Ethernet network switches, and a multifunction 4G, LTE, 802.11 a/b/g/n ruggedized router to provide live viewing of passenger cameras.  The 4G/LTE ‘live’ streaming functionality includes seamless integration into the existing station and platform camera systems.

The award of these options is a strong endorsement of DTI’s integration capability as well as its ability to deliver into global projects.  In addition, DTI will significantly exceed the Disadvantaged, Minority and Woman-Owned Business Participation target of 28 per cent for the project.  The DART project is the largest major rail project awarded to DTI in the United States.
