RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Integrian, Inc. a developer of mobile digital video solutions announces the launch of its TransitCam TC-50, an advanced on-board CCTV passenger surveillance product for bus and light rail systems.

TransitCam TC-50 evolved from Integrian's rail passenger surveillance system, the TC-100, which is currently installed in over 1,800 railway cars in Sidney and Melbourne, Australia, as well as in the London Underground, Heathrow Express, SW England, and Madrid Express systems. Following a bid solicitation from New Jersey Transit in 2004, Integrian leveraged the proven technology and software of the TC-100 to create a fully ruggedized, 8-camera solution for bus and light rail systems.

With up to 30 frames-per-second on each of its 8 camera inputs, and resolution as high as 720 x 480 pixels, the TC-50 offers the best video quality in the industry. Furthermore, simultaneous recording and live wireless video streaming allow administrators back at the office a real-time view of what is happening onboard the bus.

The TC-50 enjoys a powerful feature list, adapted from the larger TC-100 product. TransitCam Product Manager Luis Rodriguez explains, "A feature-rich software application suite allows agencies to fine-tune video quality by configuring frame rate, image resolution, and file size. The TC-50 is able to wirelessly stream live video with enhanced error correction to multiple users at remote operation centers. It also uses industry standard encryption and anti-tamper protection so video, audio and metadata can be used as evidence in a court of law; and it offers storage options from 20 gigabytes to 1.2 terabytes. This flexibility makes the TC-50 an incredibly effective option for Transit Authorities and Fleet Managers."

Steve Hemenway, Integrian's Director of Transit Business Development, feels the product is exactly what transit professionals are looking for. "TransitCam provides Mass Transit quality video surveillance and detailed event data for passenger safety, operational reviews and claims litigation. Moreover, the TC-50 meets many of the emerging technical demands for real-time communications from transit organizations, homeland security, and emergency first responders."

TransitCam TC-50 is currently installed at New Jersey Transit, and has trials underway in California and Canada.
