Apollo's vehicle info software cuts costs, boosts video data access

Posted on October 4, 2011

Apollo Video Technology (Apollo Video) is showcasing its Vehicle Information Management (ViM) software for mobile video surveillance systems at the APTA 2011 EXPO. Apollo Video’s ViM software is a comprehensive application designed to mitigate the risk of video loss, reduce maintenance and operating costs and increase accessibility of video surveillance and fleet data. 

Apollo Video executives, product developers and sales staff will be on-site (booth number 623) demonstrating the functionality of the software and connecting wirelessly, in real-time, to buses in operation using RASplus software and the RoadRunner Mobile application for iPhone and iPad.

Apollo Video recently introduced new features to the ViM software: The DVR Health Module provides automatic fleet-wide health monitoring and diagnostics of on-board video equipment, which, as a result of automated, wireless diagnostic reports, has reduced maintenance and operating costs for many transit agencies. Additionally, a newly released driver behavior-management tool provides reviewers of the video clips with a specific field in which they have the ability to include notes annotating driver actions and behavior designed to increase safety, provide feedback to drivers and help to promote a more positive rider experience.

“In the last several years, transit operations nationwide have converted to high-performance mobile video surveillance systems due to the increased need for public safety and reliable video evidence,” said Rodell Notbohm, general manager of Apollo Video Technology. “We are witnessing an important strategic shift in the way the transit industry utilizes technology; in addition to extending current video capabilities, municipalities and transit decision-makers are looking for integrated solutions – like Apollo Video’s – to reduce maintenance and operating costs while addressing security needs.”

ViM software is forward and backward compatible with virtually all Apollo Video RoadRunner digital video recorders (DVRs), regardless of age or size of the systems installed throughout a fleet, providing a scalable, fleet-wide compatible solution.
