Why Invest in High Definition 2 Megapixel Mobile Video?
In a word: “Clarity”

Currently D1 (720x480 TVL) resolution is the current standard for 4-channel mobile video solutions. The D1 systems are what we have been selling for more than 5 years, and while most customers tell us how happy they are with the resolution D1 images, we understand this is a perspective issue they may be comparing the D1 images to older technology like VGA which was standard in the VCR products sold for almost 2 decades.

Contrast that to someone who spends days working on a 27” iMac with resolution set to 1920x1080 (Full HD).  I can tell you from experience D1 images that our standard mobile video systems produce may be very clear on a small screen laptop; however, those same images are much less awe inspiring when viewed on a 27” display or worse yet the 48” bench monitor we use to test and focus cameras.  As the normal visual computing world is 4 times higher resolution, so D1 looks blurry, graining, has poor color saturation, and poor image quality in almost every way you can define it when compared to the Full HD 1080p we use daily on large screen displays.

For several years we have been searching for a higher resolution technology than D1 in a mobile DVR platform to deliver the extremely high-resolution images we use daily in the computing world of digital graphics. For the first time in 30 years we can now introduce a 4-channel mobile DVR platform that offers true Full HD 1080P High Definition for mobile video solutions in vehicles.



Application Based Advantages of HD1080P

While every mobile video security surveillance application will benefit from the much higher definition of the Full HD 1080P systems, certain aspects of some applications may make the systems extremely advantageous as they may redefine the scope of the security surveillance and provide new depth into the video files that was never before evident. Each different application or vehicle use will present different advantages when employing the higher resolution Full HD systems.


School Bus Number of Cameras
The availability of cameras of such high resolution may make it possible for fewer cameras to provide more coverage and details than a larger number of cameras. Often there are mid-ship cameras installed in the bus to look at the back half of the bus from the front as current industry technology D1 cameras have a very short Depth of Field, meaning you can only see good details about 10’ from the standard 2.8mm or 3.6mm wide angle lens. When using HD1080P systems, you will not require as many cameras as the images are 4x clearer, so even the front camera can be zoomed to see the rear of the bus. Conversely, the rear camera is often just used to record activities going on in the last three rows of seats, and while it is pointed to the front of the bus you really cannot see any details as again, the Depth of Field is short only about 10’. When using the HD cameras you will now be able to see much more detail in the front of the bus and in some cases you may not require the camera over the drivers shoulder that would document any inappropriate contact between the driver and a child.

Wheel chair lift buses also require separate cameras to record the activities of lift and lower of children to insure it is performed in a professional and safe manor. The standard front and rear HD cameras will again provide so much Depth of Field that the Wheelchair lift camera can usually be eliminated.

Some Stop Arm Camera solutions employ 5 - 7 cameras on the outside of the bus in a box which are all aimed to specific target zones or travel lanes for cars passing the bus. All seven cameras can be replaced with 2 HD 1080P Stop Arm Cameras one facing front and one facing rear that can not only capture the car tag of the vehicle passing the bus, but can also capture the drivers image to help document they were the actual driver of the vehicle. Again the ability to zoom into the image and still have a clear image will provide a reduction in cost by requiring fewer cameras to provide the same coverage capabilities. As fines and penalties for Stop Arm Violation can be considerable, including loss of driving privileges or jail time for repeat offenses, those charged with these citations will often contract legal representation to have the charges dismissed and in these cases especially the more usable video evidence available the better.


Taxi & Limousine
Taxi and Limousine mobile video security surveillance cameras are often installed to provide a criminal deterrent to those who might take advantage of the driver by to robbing them of cash or assaulting them in some way or hijacking the vehicle. The high definition HD cameras can provide a much higher level of video evidence than the typical lower resolution currently in use. While the presence of HD cameras will not deter crime on it’s own, this can make police suspect identification much easier and as arrests are made it is possible the public awareness may help reduce the frequency of incidents.

Another common occurrence in the taxi markets is violations of other drivers who may cause an accident or cause your vehicle to swerve to avoid having one. It is a common request for a taxi or limo application to be able to capture the vehicle license plates of vehicle in front of them who may cut them off or force their vehicle off the road or into another vehicle.

Some locations like airports or luxury motels have sanctioned Taxi Waiting Areas where taxis wait in turn to pickup the next customer in an orderly fashion. In a perfect world with rational drivers this would be functional and without issue, but I have had many taxi and limo fleet owners remark on how many times other drivers who were not in the waiting queue were creating potential safety hazards cutting in line making other drivers and customers uncomfortable. They also informed me that is some areas of taxi operation this is a crime and citations are issued to offending drivers, as they cause a potential safety hazard. Again the high definition taxi camera would be able to capture the incident and the offending taxi license plate so that driver could be issued a citation for the violation.


Paratransit
Transporting groups of people who may be elderly, handicapped or under medication may bring added liability for the company nor transportation provider. When using HD1080P systems with HD cameras you will not require as many cameras as the images are 4x clearer, so even the front camera can be zoomed to see the rear of the Paratransit bus. Conversely, the rear camera is often just used to record activities going on in the last 3 rows of seats, and while it is pointed to the front of the bus you really cannot see any details as again the Depth of Field is shortened to only about 10’. When using the 2 Megapixel cameras you will now be able to see much more detail in the front of the bus and in some cases you may not require the camera over the drivers shoulder that would document any incidents in the stairwell area where passengers may injure themselves in a slip or fall or in some case may stage a fake fall in order to receive some payment in a liability claim.

Wheel chair lift vans or shuttle vehicles also require separate cameras to record the activities of lift and lower of special needs passengers to insure it is performed in a professional and safe manor. The standard front and rear Megapixel cameras will again provide so much Depth of Field that the Wheelchair lift camera can usually be eliminated.


First Responder
First responder vehicles are often the first on the scene and often it is important to document what the condition of the scene or an event was upon arrival for operational, training or liability purposes as important decisions must be made quickly and often without supervisory guidance. In this high risk environment the advantages of a Megapixel camera looking out the windshield can accurately document the situation as it was first encountered to provide a basis for actions that were taken or for later review.

On occasion bystanders may become a hindrance or problem preventing the responders from performing their duties and should they become such a hindrance the responders abilities to act effectively are reduced in some cases charges may need to be filed and the video evidence will provide justification for those charges.


Law Enforcement Operations
When bad things happen such as the Anthrax threats, DC Beltway Sniper incident, Boston Marathon bombing, police shootouts etc., federal agencies like DHS, FBI & ATF are often seeking as much data as possible to try to determine exactly what happened, identify who was involved, were they alone or with others, what were they driving, license plate of the vehicles involved, what direction they were traveling etc. Most of this data is in the form of video surveillance files from fixed cameras in the streets or in storefronts.

In those rare instances of heightened law enforcement information gathering, the forward facing 2 Megapixel camera can provide law enforcement a valuable tool in the form of expert witness from a mobile platform, as a fleet of taxis or limos could canvas a wide area of a city, and as long as the vehicles are in operation their recorded files might be of use to those who would be looking for this sort of evidence.

The same can be said of Amber Alerts, as most amber alerts are accompanied by a vehicle make and model, and again if the vehicle travels in a city with a fleet of taxis incorporating the new 2 Megapixel system you may have captured useful evidence or tracking information on the forward facing cameras, that could be of help to law enforcement agencies in returning the missing child.
