AngelTrax announces additions to mobile DVR line

Posted on February 10, 2011

NEWTON, Ala. — AngelTrax Bus Video has expanded its Hybrid Component Series mobile DVR (digital video recorder) line to include the Hybrid Quest and Hybrid Vault.

These hot-swappable, component-based mobile DVRs both feature wireless compatibility, and are capable of live video streaming and instant system health checks, enabling fleet directors to gain enhanced insight into their fleet operations.

The new Hybrid Quest and Vault include the same durable metal enclosure component design, with an additional dock for Wi-Fi/WiMAX connectivity and a high-performance main board with Secure Digital card backup storage capability. The Hybrid Vault also features two hard drive docks, extending storage capacity.

"With wireless compatibility, instant DVR health checks, increased storage potential, live video streaming and signature hot-swapping component design, the Hybrid Quest and Vault offer customers an all-in-one surveillance solution," says Richie Howard, AngelTrax's president.

Wireless connectivity offers fleet managers the power to stream live audio and video data and download streamed video files. The health system notifications include vehicle number, date, time, event type and GPS coordinates that link to a Google Map overlay. Fleet managers can also create custom health reports that include such features as speed status, vehicle collision and DVR boot-up, providing faster response times and simplified fleet management, according to company officials. 

The Hybrid Quest and Hybrid Vault's wireless technology can be used to provide secure 3G/4G Wi-Fi access for bus passengers. Encrypted video files and a secure network protect the wireless transmission of audio and video data, preventing unauthorized access. Live surveillance footage can only be viewed using AngelTrax's proprietary playback software. 

Every Hybrid Quest comes standard with four high-resolution audio and video channels, a 320GB SATA hard drive with a tray and built-in reader, a vandal-proof built-in lock box, a driver-operated panic button and MPEG4/JPEG swappable image compression. The driver-operated panic button, which features three system check lights and a panic event push button, gives operators the control to mark a panic event on the DVR and confirm that the system is properly functioning. 

The Hybrid Vault comes standard with eight high-resolution audio and video channels, two 320GB SATA hard drives with trays and built-in readers, a vandal-proof built-in lock box, a driver-operated panic button and MPEG4/JPEG swappable image compression.

Hybrid Quest and Hybrid Vault are compatible with all AngelTrax high-resolution cameras and can be installed on school buses, paratransit vehicles, mass transit systems and locomotives.
