AngelTrax unveils new line of HD cameras

Posted on November 8, 2013

AngelTrax announced a new line of onboard interior and exterior high-definition cameras, featuring HD quality 800TV-lines of resolution, waterproof IP68 certified stainless-steel housing and “SmartInfrared” technology coupled with advanced dual exposure image processing — vastly improving nighttime and low light video capture.

Precision-engineered to deliver unparalleled picture and sound quality for transit applications, the AngelTrax HD camera line includes nine cameras with varying fields of view ranging from focused 20-degree to wide-angle 120-degree capture.

“We listened to our customers’ needs for even higher quality video and responded by creating nine high-definition cameras that would not only endure extreme conditions experienced on the road, but also reliably capture the highest quality image possible that would consistently stand up in court as admissible evidence,” said Richie Howard, AngelTrax’s president.

Each camera features a one-third inch Sony HD CCD image sensor and 800TV-lines of resolution. AngelTrax high-definition camera systems have the ability to record in 60 frames-per-second at 1280 x 720 resolution. The sophisticated proprietary H.4L compression used by AngelTrax DVR systems, efficiently compresses video footage — freeing space for more footage stored onboard and enhancing hands-free wireless transfer.

Nighttime and low light condition capture, such as dawn and dusk, is now clearer than ever. Built-in smart infrared and super ultra wide dynamic (SWDR) technology allow AngelTrax HD cameras to automatically adapt to unpredictable lighting conditions experienced in mobile environments.

SmartInfrared automatically modifies the luminosity emitted by built-in infrared LEDs to compensate as the subject moves closer or further away from the camera. Cutting-edge SWDR technology blends together two separate images for each frame of video captured by an AngelTrax HD camera — producing an ideally exposed picture.

Each camera is waterproof IP68 certified and features a shatter resistant glass lens cover that eliminates water and moisture buildup in the optic area — protecting its crystal clear capture. The cover is also vacuum-sealed to a stainless steel, vandal-proof cast housing, providing a durable environment for the high-definition lens.

The high-definition cameras are compatible with all AngelTrax DVR systems, and can be installed on school buses, paratransit services, mass transit systems, law enforcement vehicles and locomotives.
