Integrian Starts NYC Bus Surveillance Pilot Project

Integrian, a North Carolina company specializing in mobile video solutions, is part of a pilot project in Manhattan to have surveillance systems aboard buses.

The buses will be fitted with a DVR-based system that runs Integrian's TransitCam platform.

According to a local journalist with the Staten Island Advance, the Integrian system places multiple cameras on the bus, recording both internal views and a forward-facing camera.

The system, which is in the pilot project stage, and which is estimated to cost some $5.2 million, is designed primarily for fighting crime.

Integrian's TransitCam system for buses features the TC-50 digital video recorder, which supports eight cameras. The company also sells a line of dedicated cameras designed for mobile video, ranging from mini domes, to covert cameras to forward-facing cameras that can capture the driver's perspective. Also in the company's TransitCam product line is a set of monitors designed to give drivers a view around their vehicle.
