Apollo Video Technology, a maker of surveillance cameras, says all of its mobile video surveillance cameras, manufactured specifically for all types of mass transit and rail vehicles, are operating in high resolution.
The installed cameras capture images at a minimum of 540 TV lines of resolution, with some capturing images at 550 TV lines of resolution, Apollo Video says in a written statement. That equipment is now standard across Apollo Video’s entire range of camera—both interior and exterior mounting—on all vehicle types, including transit, paratransit and passenger rail.
The standardization of high-resolution cameras allows Apollo Video’s entire inventory of camera equipment to provide high quality play-back video and live video feeds, the company says. Cameras capturing video in high resolution also feature technologies such as wide-dynamic range to respond better in bright light or varying light conditions, it adds.
Apollo Video designs “surveillance equipment that goes beyond just meeting our customers’ needs, but provides their fleets with the highest performance and reliability including high resolution and backwards compatibility regardless of the age of the system installed,” says Rodell Notbohm, Apollo Video Technology’s general manager. “With the standardization of high-resolution cameras across all of Apollo Video’s offerings, we’re making a promise to our customer that high-quality video evidence will help protect the safety and security of their passengers and community.” Other features of Apollo Video’s camera equipment include:
- Infrared (IR) illumination for recording in low-light conditions.
- Built-in audio recording.
- Exterior cameras with IP67 rating for outdoor use designed to withstand bus washes, weather and impacts from environmental factors such as tree branches.
- Exterior cameras with heaters.
