HOUSTON — Safety Vision LLC, a provider of mobile video surveillance and collision avoidance solutions, is celebrating its 21st anniversary in 2014.
The company serves a variety of fleets, including mass transit, pupil transportation, law enforcement and private fleet sectors.
“Safety Vision is growing every day from the global deployment of our diversified set of next generation solutions,” said Bruce Smith, Safety Vision founder and CEO. “With only a fraction of start-up companies surviving each year, we well surpassed the odds stacked up against us, and it’s worth celebrating. … We are approaching $1 billion in sales since inception; this has made for an incredible milestone.”
Safety Vision is a member of the Inc. 500 and a winner of the Blue Chip Enterprise award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The company was recently issued U.S. Patent No. 8,588,041 B1 for the technology behind SafeStor, the method of storing digital data in a moving vehicle, ensuring large capacity onboard storage with the highest reliability redundancy recording for Safety Vision’s RoadRecorder product line for mass transit and pupil transportation.
The RoadRecorder series offers high-definition recording and utilizes both hard disk drive and solid-state recording to create redundant data storage. The product line accommodates audio and video for six or 12 cameras (IP and analog) and provides wireless download of data, real-time live look-in, system health status, GPS and metadata.
In addition to receiving the patent for the technology behind SafeStor, Safety Vision has released the hybrid Observer 4100 product line for the pupil transportation market. The hybrid Observer line records analog and high-definition IP video, GPS and metadata for eight or 16 cameras with audio and video.
For redundant reliability, the Observer 4100 line also offers a small external crash resistant recording device, helping to ensure that recorded data will never be destroyed. Other features include cellular connectivity; automatic download of events, system health status and wireless firmware upgrades; vehicle tracking; and real-time live look-in via a stationary computer and cellular devices through Android and iPhone applications.
