Cut the wires! The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority is going wireless with part of its video security system reports Miami-based security systems integrator ATC International.
The project encompasses the Tri-Rail network, a commute rail services reaching over 72 miles in South Florida and extending across 18 staions in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.
The system, which was designed by ATC International (and will be installed by the company, too), allows on-demand event recording, with video available from stock units to served to the train conductors, and end-of-day downloading to the central servers.
By going wireless, the system unlocks the problem of mobile video and connecting a video system between train units.
"This is cutting-edge technology," explained integrator ATC International's president Chris Cavallo. "ATC's security system helps the SFRTA remain in the forefront with regard to innovative security systems; recording video while the trains are moving has not been done before."
