Apollo launches DVR health module at APTA TransITech show

Posted on March 29, 2011

Health reports of mobile video surveillance systems for public transit vehicles, including cameras, digital video recorders (DVR) and hard drives, can now be accessed in conjunction with existing features available with Apollo Video Technology’s (Apollo Video) Video Information Management (ViM) software.

Apollo Video is announcing the availability of the DVR health module at the 2011 American Public Transportation Association (APTA) TransITech Conference in Miami. The module allows more functionality for determining the health of the fleet’s video systems.

This new functionality provides transit managers immediate access to error reports, such as camera video-loss events or failed DVR recordings, when logged into the system. Reports now also provide an evaluation and time stamp of which vehicles encounter technical or power errors.

The ViM software also supplies comprehensive vehicle status reports, event logs, on-demand video-clip retrieval and automated download of event video clips. The software is capable of archiving footage with short-term and long-term video evidence storage options, chain of custody management, event statistics and reporting features.

Now, coupled with DVR health status information, transit managers will be able to monitor bus activity and check a fleet’s health status more closely. Demonstrations and additional information will be available at Apollo Video’s exhibitor booth — at the TransITech Conference.

In addition, representatives from Woodinville, Wash.-based Apollo Video, provider of state-of-the-art video solutions for all mass transit vehicle types, are participating in a breakout session, hosted by APTA and the Conference to discuss cooperative contracting and effective procurement of video systems.

Bruce Greene, Apollo Video’s eastern sales director, will be speaking on Thursday, March 31, 2011 in session 14 dedicated to effective procurement. He will present information pertaining to alternative procurement practices, such as cooperative purchasing and how decision makers should evaluate the procurement process done by similar agencies in the event they could benefit from their investment in research.

Greene sits on the board of directors for the Missouri Public Transit Association and has participated in many transit industry events such as the APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference and as a speaker at CTAA Community Transit Expo.
