Paired with Seon’s CHW HD bus camera, the DX-HD is ideal for school bus and transit surveillance applications where image clarity is essential, such as in accident reconstruction or license plate capture.
“Customers love the detail they get with the HD camera,” said Jordan Shishmanov, senior product manager. “Now they can clearly read road signs and license plates of cars passing the vehicle. Images are crisp, and even small details are easy to identify.”
The next-generation DVR features the highest resolution and frame-rate combination available, officials said, delivering outstanding image quality with advanced video storage technology (H.264). The system offers 13 channels, with the ability to simultaneously record 30 frames per second at 720x480 resolution on 12 channels with audio plus one high-definition channel at 1280x720 resolution. Dual hard drives provide double the recording capacity of conventional DVRs.
The DX-HD facilitates better incident management through dual streaming technology, which is ideal for real-time viewing applications. Dual streaming technology records two video streams: one lower resolution stream for viewing over a cell phone network, and one high-resolution stream for playback on a PC. The DX-HD also includes an inertia sensor, which logs and displays G-force data, allowing system administrators to monitor driver behavior, including speed, turning, signals, braking and idling.
The system also provides incident alerts, giving transportation authorities the opportunity to respond to events instantly. In combination with vMax Commander video management software, Seon’s automated Health-Check feature monitors DVR, camera and hard drive status. Also, officials said with this newest release (version 4.1), the user can see individual camera loss and firmware version installed.
The system will notify the administrator of any issues, which helps to ensure that all onboard events are captured. Supported features include geo-fencing, which allows the administrator to designate a geographic boundary and receive notification if a vehicle deviates.
Footage from the DX-HD can be viewed using vMax View — playback software that allows transportation authorities to review video synchronized with mapping software for incident investigation.
