Intelligent video solutions developer March Networks has unveiled a new video recording and management platform to help rail operators improve passenger safety.

The new solution, the RideSafe RT Series IP Recorder, is available in two 20-channel models – the RT20E and the RT20EP with eight PoE ports.

It records video at a full 30 foot-pound-second per channel and enables data extraction over Wi-Fi or 4G wireless networks.

“This new RideSafe RT Series solution delivers all the benefits of our accumulated expertise, as well as advanced integration and investigation capabilities.”

March Networks transit solutions product manager Réal Barrière said: “March Networks has spent more than a decade designing and delivering high-performance, highly reliable video systems to rail and transit operators worldwide.

“This new RideSafe RT Series solution delivers all the benefits of our accumulated expertise, as well as the advanced integration and investigation capabilities necessary for successful fleet management.”

The new video recorder complements March Networks’ video solution for mobile and wayside environments, which features mobile IP cameras, user-friendly client software and video systems that can be installed at stations and other transit facilities.

These products can be integrated and managed with March Networks Command Enterprise video management software.

The company noted that the RideSafe RT Series can be integrated with other Train Control and Management Systems (TCMS), Passenger Information Systems (PIS), GPS and other associated devices to enhance search and investigation capabilities.

Using the Command software, rail operators can review all the recorded events alongside associated video evidence.

The combined video and data set will enable them to swiftly investigate complaints, liability claims and other events.

The video evidence can also be used to identify and resolve technical issues such as train door malfunctions.
