Apollo Video Technology Launches Graphical Mapping Solution for RoadRunner Mobile Video System
WOODINVILLE, Wash.—Apollo Video Technology (www.avt-usa.com) of Woodinville Wash. has added an Interactive Speed and Mapping (iSM) software solution to the RoadRunner Mobile Video System that will help transit, pupil transportation and law enforcement agencies instantly view pre-recorded video through a GPS enabled graphical interface.
The iSM interface, which only requires the addition of a GPS antenna to the RoadRunner Mobile Video System, will help public and pupil transportation agencies and law enforcement officials view video by selecting location, route and speed information displayed on a graphical interface. Display of landmarks, road conditions and safety zones are also included to simplify report writing in law enforcement applications.
“The iSM interface provides a faster and more accurate method for performing video searches and helps officials easily confirm ADA compliance,” said Rodell Notbohm, General Manager of Apollo Video Technology. “In public and pupil transit, officials can view pre-recorded video by selecting a visual point on the route, displaying street names and intersections of passenger pick-up and drop-off locations, while in law enforcement, officials can collect comprehensive visual evidence to assist in locating fleeing suspects and discarded evidence.”
The iSM software interface, which is license free and has no monthly fee, is compatible with all versions of the RoadRunner Mobile Video System sold after Feb. 1, 2008.
The RoadRunner system provides video and audio surveillance for military applications, transit buses, rail cars, school buses and police vehicles.
In addition to the new iSM feature, the RoadRunner’s updated software includes enhanced network capabilities for scheduled and automatic system health checks, fleet-wide time synchronization, e-Mail notification for events, camera obstructions and hard disk drive status as well as the ability to send live video to a central location in the event of an emergency.
