April 19, 2016 - DTI to Provide CCTV Surveillance Systems to Dallas Area Rapid Transit

DTI Group Ltd (ASX: DTI) (DTI) is pleased to announce the award of a contract with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) for the supply and installation of advanced CCTV surveillance systems on light rail vehicles (LRVs) for the city of Dallas, USA.

The contract involves the supply and installation of surveillance systems on 48 LRVs valued at approximately US$2.6 million (A$3.4 million) plus options for the supply and installation of an additional 115 LRVs valued at approximately US$6.3 million (A$8.2 million). Deliveries for the initial 48 systems are expected to commence in the first half of FY17 and will be delivered over a 12 month period.

Each LRV will be equipped with:

  • DTI’s advanced TDR6 digital surveillance system with integral switching, enhanced ‘dual drive’ redundancy and communications infrastructure for system management and data downloads
  • nine high-definition 6-megapixel cameras each providing a 360 degree panoramic view of the passenger area
  • three transit rated power over Ethernet network switches
  • multifunction 4G, LTE, 802.11 a/b/g/n ruggedized router to provide live viewing of passenger cameras.

The DTI solution will be supplied with full 4G/LTE ‘live’ streaming functionality which includes seamless integration into the existing station and platform camera systems. DTI will also provide its  comprehensive back-end CCTV management system to centralise and coordinate the CCTV data and allow video evidence and system diagnostics to be recovered from LRVs through an on-line automated CCTV 'booking' system utilising a Wi-Fi network.

DTI's Managing Director, Richard Johnson, commented: "The selection of the DTI solution by DART builds on DTI’s recent run of wins in the US rail market and, importantly, is another direct order with a key transit operator in the US. This project 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. Dallas now becomes another city in the US which has DTI solutions operating across rail or bus networks joining Philadelphia, and San Francisco.”
“We are pleased with the endorsement of our innovative sixth generation state-of-the-art TDR6 digital surveillance system. DTI is committed to ongoing product and system development for the transit sector building on over 15,000 systems already provided to the US market to date”, he said.
