January 25, 2012 - DTI Group to Provide Video Surveillance Systems for Cape Town Buses

DTI Group is pleased to announce an order for 268 advanced on-board surveillance systems from CSS&I Pty Ltd on behalf of the City of Cape Town. Each Bus will be equipped with DTI's latest ‘hybrid’ Digital Recording Unit (MDR5-L) with up to 8 high resolution megapixel IP and analogue cameras and driver's display monitor. The system once installed will provide full remote video scheduling and download capability together with routine system diagnostics and GPS-based vehicle location data.

The chosen solution requires no routine maintenance, providing  fully  automated camera and HDD checking analytics ‘wirelessly’ reported back to the city depot(s) through the on-board Wi-Fi system and DTI's market leading fleet management software suite. The ‘Fleet Manager’ suite centralises and coordinates the vehicles’ CCTV network and allows video evidence to be recovered from vehicles through an on-line automated CCTV 'booking' system providing significant benefits through the easy management of equipment, video retrieval and video storage.

Steve Donnohue, General Manager for DTI EMEA Ltd, said: “We are very pleased with this award which represents further recognition and growth for DTI in the region. The DTI solution chosen represents the very latest technology available within the sector and we very much look forward to working with our partners in meeting the Customer’s high expectations for this project.”
