Discovering the Future of Bus and Coach Surveillance

Friday, 21 October 2016

Surveillance expert Synectics explores how technologies such as IP networks, wireless communications and systems integration are shaping the future of on-vehicle CCTV and the industry as a whole, whilst operators can overcome these challenges and mitigate risks to their businesses.

Maximising investment in technology

With 85% of buses and coaches in England now fitted with CCTV, operators are familiar with using on-vehicle CCTV systems to manage security and operational performance for their fleets – it has become a ‘must have’ solution. Yet many are still to take advantage of the multiple benefits that IP technology and high resolution IP cameras can deliver. The key now is maximizing investment to boost performance.

For example, high resolution images captured from IP cameras help operators pick out fine details from incident video such as vehicle registration plates – detail conventional analogue cameras are simply not able to capture. As network bandwidth increases, live image streaming is also becoming more practical, enabling operators to view and monitor a vehicle immediately after an incident.

Our job is to help operators make the right choices, and a key part of this is advising on an upgrade path that helps customers get the most from existing equipment in their fleet, whilst also taking advantage of the latest technology such as IP cameras. Customers may not be able to renew all their systems in one go, so we enable them to design an optimal way to migrate to new technology based on steady transition.

Join Synectics at Euro Bus Expo 2016, where we will be hosting a range of free educational seminars on their stand (T136) entitles The Future: Working Together, which explore topics including:

Future trends in on-vehicle CCTV
Discover how current and new technologies are shaping the future of on-board surveillance, how this is likely to affect the bus industry, and how you can prepare to face the challenges and risks to your business.

Maximising your investment in on-vehicle CCTV
The UK is one of the most watched countries in the world, with an estimated CCTV camera for every 11 members of the UK population. As such, the technology is here to stay. With over 25 years' experience, we're providing an invaluable insight to operators large and small as to how to get the most from your investment.

Understanding your obligations under the Data Protection Act & best practice video management
It is vital that operators understand their legal obligations when operating CCTV. This seminar is designed to give an overview of the DPA and subsequent associated codes of practice, along with a practical insight into how technology can help meet these obligations and support the adoption of best practice.

Driving a more integrated approach to CCTV and on-board data management
The world we live in is becoming increasingly connected. This presents both opportunities to improve the flow and management of data, but, also risks as to how the wealth of data we create could and should be used. This seminar explores how greater integration of back-office systems can drive improved efficiencies through consolidation and improved data-mining capability.
