Public Transport In Prague To Be Equipped By Surveillance Cameras

One of the world’s leaders on the network video solutions and monitoring systems Axis Communications published a press-release stating that during the next six years public buses in Prague are to be equipped with several hundred AXIS 209FD-R IP-cameras for monitoring buses interiors. Since November 2009 about one hundred surveillance cameras of this model have already been installed in Prague’s buses. The whole project is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

Such IP-cameras are to became an integral part of the end-to-end surveillance system for constant monitoring buses interiors in order to improve passengers security and prevent committing acts of vandalism and other crimes. A network camera AXIS 209FD-R is a palm-size device specially designed for functioning in tough environments. It is securely dust and excessive moisture protected and cannot be harmed by mechanical vibrations.

Axis’s in-house progressive scan technology provides full resolution video streaming of moving objects without any distortions which comes on very handy while investigating cases of vandalism and other crimes that could be commited onboard. Those cameras feature an intelligent capability of sending alarm messages if somebody tries to dismount it or cover or spray-paint the lens.

Edwin Roobol, Regional Manager NL, DACH and CEE, commented: "The AXIS 209FD-R is designed for deployment in buses so it has been specifically designed to prevent or reduce crime, graffiti and vandalism, which are the key requirements in this environment. In case of an accident or crime, it also provides useful high-quality video evidence to support and accelerate the investigation process".

During the next six years SOR Libchavy bus manufacturer is to supply the Prague Transport Authority (DPHMP) with a total of 620 buses for use as municipal transport equipped with network camera surveillance systems. The new buses will meet modern design requirements and they will also be environmental laws compliant.
