VIVOTEK is pleased to announce recently the launch of its next-generation compact design 1.2MP mobile dome network camera, MD8531H, which is especially designed with several unique features ideal for transportation applications such as cars, trucks fleet, freight wagon, buses, trains, and other vehicles.
The transportation, no matter for the public use or for the commercial operations, facilitates the connection of people and business activities and supporting a nation’s economic growth. Serious transportation accidents, which could be caused by drivers’ or passengers’ dangerous behaviour, unpredictable terrorists’ malicious attacks, the mechanical errors and the artificial delay, may cause damages and loss to the social and economic development. Therefore, the transportation with comprehensive and seamless security system is important. The surveillance device especially plays a pivotal role in the security system. With high quality and intelligent surveillance devices, the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians can be well monitored. Besides, combining with GPS (Global Positioning System), the surveillance system can further enhance the tracking of truck fleet. The truck fleet dispatcher and managers can get real-time information like drivers’ behaviour, location, speed, fuel consumption, routes and conditions on the roads. Dispatcher or managers are able to send out alerts directly and take immediate actions if needed, significantly avoiding the loss, reducing the cost and improving the efficiency and productivity.
VIVOTEK, bearing the market need and based on its profound R&D resources, developed the compact mobile dome network camera MD8531H with several outstanding features, making it a robust choice for vehicle surveillance. With full EN50155 compliance, the camera can withstand shock, vibration, maintaining stable and reliable video during vehicle movement. The vandal-proof metal housing and IP66-rated housing effectively provides robust protection from vandalism and resist from humidity, dust, and temperature fluctuations. The intelligent tamper detection feature makes MD8531H a truly robust camera that keeps security staff notified once it suffers video loss from being blocked or spray-painted. More significantly, in order to facilitate on-board storage and data portability, the camera is also complete with a MicroSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for local recording. In corridor scenario, video rotation feature can provide wider vertical coverage for more depth. More uniquely, VIVOTEK designed MD8531H with WDR Pro technology, which enables the camera to be able to capture clear image around the vehicles under extremely high contrast environment, like in-and-out a tunnel.
Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK, stated, “For years, we have completed numerous success transportation projects around the world, including in Hungary, Mexico, Brazil, Taiwan and more. With accumulated professional experiences and R&D capacity in transportation surveillance, we developed MD8531H, the best choice of camera for transportation applications.”
