Apollo Video equips Fla. transit with command center

Posted on January 26, 2009

Apollo Video Technology has partnered with Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) to provide a state-of-the-art command center for viewing and monitoring video. 


The command center, serving JTA’s Skyway operations, provides transit officials with access to both real-time and historical video of Skyway trains and stations. 


Each of the Skyway’s 10 trains are equipped with Apollo Video Technology’s RoadRunner digital video recorders (DVR) and four surveillance cameras strategically placed in the interior of each train. The cameras provide video of riders entering, exiting and on-board the trains.


Each Skyway station is also equipped with a RoadRunner facility-based DVR and four to eight cameras strategically positioned to provide full surveillance of each station.


The command center features 10 display monitors that provide a comprehensive view of the entire Skyway operation. This gives transit officials the viewing capabilities required to dispatch police immediately if safety or security concerns arise.
