DTI Group to provide CCTV surveillance for DART light rail system

Posted on April 19, 2016

DTI Group Ltd. was awarded a contract from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) for the supply and installation of advanced CCTV surveillance systems on the system’s light rail vehicles (LRVs).

The contract involves the supply and installation of surveillance systems on 48 LRVs valued at approximately $2.6 million, plus options for the supply and installation of an additional 115 LRVs valued at approximately $6.3 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 six-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 centralize 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 utilizing a Wi-Fi network.
