July 24, 2008 - DTI Group signs Metro Tasmania Bus Contract

DTI Group Limited (DTI) is pleased to announce a contract award for the supply and installation of advanced video surveillance systems into 73 buses for Metro Tasmania.

Metro Tasmania selected DTI’s MDR-5 mobile recorder and Fleet Management system as it provided a wide range of capabilities across the bus fleet coupled with an ease to use and effective solution. The scope of works also includes DTI's GPS based vehicle location system, audio, wireless data communications infrastructure, and DTI's fleet management software suite. DTI's wireless infrastructure and comprehensive back-end CCTV management system centralises and coordinates the bus CCTV network.

Each bus will be equipped with DTI's latest Mobile Digital Recorder (MDR-5) and between six and eight high resolution colour cameras. A microphone located in the forward and rear parts of the bus is available to capture and transmit audio/voice communications under 'duress' or emergency situations.

Pending funding approvals, Metro Tasmania is planning to install systems on all of their 206 buses. Under the agreement, DTI will also provide ongoing services such as help desk assistance and technical support.

The Metro Tasmania project further builds on DTI's success across Australia in providing advanced city-wide transit surveillance solutions and services in over half of Australia’s capital cities. With 8,500 cameras now installed in buses and trains in Australia and a further 3,500 to be installed as part of the Metro Tasmania and other recently awarded projects, DTI is well positioned as the major transit surveillance provider in Australia.

Keith Hughes, General Manager – Australia said: “We are pleased that Metro Tasmania selected DTI as their transit surveillance provider. The ongoing support we receive from our customers is highly appreciated and we hope to expand our base further by continuing to provide solutions which customers require complimented by our transit focused support service”.
