The Interurban Transit Partnership ("The Rapid") in Grand Rapids, Mich., is acquiring 126 video surveillance systems and back-end management software from Woodinville, Wash.-based Apollo Video Technology--specifically the company's RoadRunner video surveillance system and ViM Software solution.

Apollo will replace existing digital video recorders, install additional interior and exterior cameras and wireless LAN equipment. ViM Software will supply vehicle status reports, event logs, on-demand video clip retrieval and automated download of event video clips.

Each individual camera system will provide The Rapid with Wi-Fi and GPS capabilities, allowing transit officials to monitor real-time video and location data. With the ViM Software, transit officials will receive comprehensive reports and vehicle data including information from the last time a vehicle was connected to the network. In the event of an emergency, the system will allow supervisors and law enforcement agencies to log-on remotely and view real-time video.

“Apollo Video offered an exceptional combination of hardware and software. Our goal was to obtain a video surveillance system that is reliable, technically advanced and easy to use,” said Brian Pouget, director of operations at the Interurban Transit Partnership. “Apollo Video delivered on all of these qualities.”

The ViM Software features an archive system with short-term and long-term storage options, event statistics and reporting features. Coupled with video surveillance, transit managers will be able to monitor bus activity and check a fleet’s health status more closely.

Reports provide users with an easy method for locating and reviewing video and the ability to disposition a clip for long-term storage or removal. Multiple video clips can be requested simultaneously for downloading video clips from several sites.
