New Vivotek compact mobile dome network camera

Taipei, Taiwan

Vivotek is launching its next-generation compact design 1.2MP mobile dome network camera, the MD8531H, which is especially designed with several unique features ideal for transportation applications such as cars, truck fleets, freight wagons, buses, trains, and other vehicles.
Transportation, no matter whether for public use or for commercial operations, facilitates the connection of people and business activities and supports a nation’s economic growth. Serious transportation incidents, which could potentially be caused by, dangerous passenger or driver behaviour, terrorist attack, mechanical error or unpredicted delays, could cause significant damage and or loss to socio-economic development. It is important therefore that any transport infrastructure should be properly equipped with a comprehensive and seamless security system.

Through high quality and intelligent surveillance devices the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians can be effectively monitored, and, by combining them with GPS, a surveillance system can further enhance the tracking of fleets of vehicles, such as buses or trucks. The truck fleet dispatcher and managers, for example can easily access real-time information such as driver behaviour, location, speed, fuel consumption, routes and conditions on the roads. The dispatcher or managers are also able to send out alerts directly and take any immediate action required, significantly avoiding losses, reducing costs and improving efficiency and productivity.

Bearing in mind market needs and trends, and based on the company's extensive R&D resources, Vivotek has developed the compact mobile dome network camera MD8531H with several outstanding features, making it a robust choice for vehicle surveillance.

With full EN50155 compliance, the camera can withstand shock and vibration and so is able to  maintain stable and reliable video production during vehicle movement. The vandal-proof metal housing and IP66-rated ingress housing effectively provides robust protection from vandalism and resistance against humidity, dust, and temperature fluctuations. The intelligent tamper detection feature makes the MD8531H a truly robust camera that keeps security staff notified once it suffers video loss from being blocked or spray-painted. More significantly, in order to facilitate on-board storage and data portability, the camera is also complete with a Micro SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for local recording. In a corridor scenario for instance, the video rotation feature can provide wider vertical coverage for more depth.

More uniquely, Vivotek has designed the MD8531H with WDR Pro technology, which enables the camera to be able to capture clear images around the vehicles under extremely high contrast environments, like when travelling in-and-out of a tunnel.

Steve Ma, Executive VP at Vivotek, stated, "Over the years, we have been involved in numerous successful transportation projects around the world, including in Hungary, Mexico, Brazil, Taiwan and more. With accumulated professional experience and R&D capacity within the transportation surveillance sector, we have developed the MD8531H, which we believe is the best choice of camera for transportation applications."
