Chantilly, VA, September 24, 2007—Dedicated Micros Inc., part of AD Group, launches the TransVu Express, a compact and lightweight addition to its award-winning family of mobile digital video recorders, at ASIS 2007.

The ruggedized TransVu Express, with aerospace grade anti-vibration mounts, is targeted at smaller bus operators, public service vehicles, taxis, and is also suitable for covert and mobile surveillance.

Its low power consumption makes the system ideal for fast set-up in isolated areas where there is no electrical supply since the TransVu Express can run off batteries via solar power. Intelligent power management based on ignition and supply voltage sensors means that the unit will carry on recording for a predefined period after the vehicle's engine has been switched off. Certain models can also provide local monitor output.

“We are confident that the TransVu Express will be very well received in the transportation market,” said Mark S. Provinsal, VP of Marketing for the Americas Region. “Users can access the TransVu Express remotely through wireless networks and automatically download footage and system status on request, which are features that are commonly found on larger, more expensive units.”

The TransVu Express unit’s small size means that it can be readily mounted under a seat of a bus or even in the trunk of a car. A single connector facilitates easy installment and removal.

Images can be stored on a fixed or removable hard drive in transport applications. A compact flash variant is available for extreme conditions such as mining, oil rigs, heavy-duty mechanical equipment and in generally dusty environments.
