May 24, 2016 - DTI to Provide Rail Surveillance Systems to Philadelphia
DTI Group Ltd (ASX: DTI) (DTI) is pleased to announce the receipt of an order for the supply of advanced CCTV surveillance systems for trains in the US city of Philadelphia which are owned and operated by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA). SETPA oversees transit in the city of Philadelphia and operates over 1,300 buses, 300 regional trains, 26 light rail vehicles and 100 other vehicles.
The order involves the supply of surveillance systems for 231 Silverliner rail vehicles. Deliveries for the systems are planned to be completed prior to 30 June 2016.
DTI's existing and comprehensive back-end CCTV management system in Philadelphia will centralise and coordinate the vehicle CCTV data and allow video evidence to be recovered from the vehicles through an on-line automated CCTV 'booking' system providing ongoing benefits through the easy management of equipment, video retrieval and video storage. Each train will be equipped with DTI's advanced MDR-5L (Mobile Digital Recorder), high resolution colour cameras, integrated wireless infrastructure, accelerometer and GPS-based vehicle location system.
DTI's Managing Director, Richard Johnson, commented: "The selection of the DTI solution builds on DTI’s recent run of wins in the US rail market and is DTI’s second rail order over the past five weeks with a key transit operator in the US (the other being the Dallas Area Rapid Transit). This latest order demonstrates DTI's growing presence in providing advanced surveillance and information technology solutions and services in the US mass transit market, which is the biggest market in the world.”
“DTI’s increased investment in marketing and research and development in 2016 is now starting to pay off with continued contract wins on important bus, rail and law enforcement projects in the United States, Europe, Australia and South Africa. DTI’s prospects list across the globe now stands at $388 million up from $330 million six months ago,” he said.
