RoadRunner 4K™ System Delivers Unprecedented Video Quality and Analytics
Apollo Video Technology introduces transformative solutions for transit agencies at APTA Expo.
Apollo Video Technology delivers new advancements to enable a greater level of intelligence, safety and efficiency in transit operations to an audience of bus and rail industry professionals at the APTA Expo. The Expo is held every three years, as part of the American Public Transportation Association's (APTA) Annual Meeting, and is considered public transit's premier showcase of technology, products and services.
A new video and data recording platform – RoadRunner 4K™ – delivers breakthrough video quality to transit video surveillance operations. The system is unique in the industry, delivering exceptional camera clarity for transit and rail, enabling agencies to have a clearer picture of activities on and around buses and commuter trains.
“Our improvements in video quality increase the accuracy of video analytics, and support further expansion of our enterprise software management solution with tools that not only enhance safety and provide video evidence, but boost efficiency and rider experience as well,” said Rodell Notbohm, CEO of Apollo Video Technology.
With a resolution four times greater than 1080p, the RoadRunner 4K system delivers better coverage, improved contrast and less pixelation. This enables operators to capture wider views and zoom in on specific areas with greater retention of detail than possible from images originating in standard high definition, meaning everything from license plates to facial features are clear and recognizable, for both manual reviewers and software analysis.
Apollo Video’s high definition 360° cameras are also making their debut at the APTA show. Achieving maximum, panoramic video coverage, with unparalleled pan and zoom capabilities, the 360° camera improves operational efficiencies as fewer cameras are required to be installed and maintained to achieve greater coverage.
“We’re excited to bring all of this technology to the market, and look forward to working with our clients in rail and bus to help them deliver an even safer environment to their riders,” said Mr. Notbohm.
Enhancements to the company’s video management software, including a new user interface, will also join Apollo Video’s new products to be highlighted in Booth 7509 at the APTA Expo, which runs through Oct. 11.
