March Networks’ full end-to-end RideSafe solution will be implemented on more than 400 buses as part of the 4 million dollar deal.

FREMONT, CA: March Networks, a global pioneer in video monitoring and video-based business intelligence, announced that one of California’s busiest transportation authorities would use its RideSafe mobile solution to standardize its entire bus fleet.

March Networks’ full end-to-end RideSafe solution will be implemented on more than 400 buses as part of the 4 million dollar deal. March Networks will receive regular and ongoing revenue for up to 7 years under the contract, including cloud-based tracking of all of the transportation authority’s mobile cameras and recorders.

“By offering the most reliable video surveillance technology and secure cloud-based monitoring services, March Networks is meeting the needs of transportation customers and rapidly growing the services side of our business,” said Net Payne, March Networks Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. “Almost 27 million people rely on this transportation authority’s buses each year. We are proud that our RideSafe solution was chosen to help safeguard this ridership.”

With integrated surveillance video and vehicle metadata, RideSafe enables transit operators to ensure the highest level of protection for riders and staff, respond quickly to emergency situations, and settle liability claims faster. March Networks’ Insight Monitoring and Resolution Service also offer peace of mind with sophisticated monitoring.

March Networks’ managed services experts use Insight to remotely track and troubleshoot all video equipment, saving customers time and money while avoiding excessive truck rolls. March Networks dispatches a technician to perform onsite repair services if a physical upgrade is necessary. All activity is logged online, allowing customers to get a full picture of their network via a protected web browser.

March Networks’ RideSafe GT Series Hybrid Transit NVRs, the backbone of the RideSafe solution, are fully integrated with Insight. With industry-recognized SAE J1455-standards and tamper-proof enclosures that protect against dust and moisture, the highly reliable Linux-based recording platforms are purpose-built for transportation environments. When managed by March Networks Command for Transit video management tools, they allow operators to access live quickly and recorded video and search for incidents based on vehicle information such as GPS location.

The NVRs, which are true hybrid appliances, support a combination of analog and IP cameras, allowing transportation agencies to switch to IP video at their own speed and at a lower cost. March Networks’ ruggedized mobile cameras, including the recent SE2 Fleet Dash Camera and SE2 Fleet Wedge Camera, will be deployed by the California Transportation authority. Both cameras have a 2MP resolution, and industry-first LED flicker mitigation technology, eliminating strobing in captured video triggered by LED light sources. By removing flicker from security footage, it’s possible to ensure that brake lights and other light sources are not mistaken for flicker, allowing for more reliable post-incident investigations.
