August 7, 2007 - DTI Signs Multi-million Dollar Contract For Buses In Canberra

DTI has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to supply and install advanced video surveillance systems into Canberra's 340 Metro Buses.

DTI Group Ltd has been awarded through public tender, a major contract by the ACT Government to supply, install and maintain CCTV equipment across 340 metro buses in Canberra. The project is a major security undertaking which will deliver 'whole of fleet' video surveillance across all of Canberra’s buses.

Each bus will be equipped with DTI's latest Mobile Digital Recorder (MDR-4) and between 3 and five high resolution colour cameras. A microphone located in the forward part of the bus is available to capture audio/voice communications under 'duress' or emergency situations.

The scope of works also includes DTI's GPS based vehicle location system, wireless data communications infrastructure and DTI's fleet management software suite. DTI's wireless infrastructure and back-end CCTV management system centralises and coordinates the bus CCTV network and allows video evidence to be recovered from buses through an on-line automated CCTV 'booking' system.

The Canberra project further builds on DTI's success across Australia in providing advanced city-wide transit surveillance operations and positions DTI as the major digital CCTV provider in Australia.
