OnSSI & Safety Vision Deliver Situational Awareness

The collaboration allows mobile and fixed cameras to be integrated onto the Ocularis VMS platform

OnSSI has partnered with Safety Vision®, LLC, a vendor of mobile video surveillance solutions. The collaboration enables integration of Safety Vision’s RoadRecorder® 8000 mobile server with OnSSI’s Ocularis 5 VMS for viewing and management of cameras on a single mobile server in transportation applications. This allows usesituational awarenessrs to integrate images from mobile camera systems installed in vehicles with stationary cameras on the Ocularis 5 VMS platform to deliver greatly improved situational awareness and documentation.

“The transportation industry is increasingly turning to video surveillance to ensure the security and safety of passengers, employees, cargo, and vehicles,” said Mulli Diamant, VP of International Business Development, OnSSI. “OnSSI and Safety Vision have teamed-up to provide the transportation industry with a surveillance and security solution that transcends traditional mobile imaging and recording through integration of our versatile Ocularis 5 VMS platform.”

The joint solution maximizes operational efficiency and offers improved management of cameras, recordings, and storage for better situational awareness. It allows users to manage well over 100 cameras on a single mobile server. This is achieved with RoadRecorder 8000’s dual removable hard drives with up to 4 terabytes of total storage and 16 digital inputs and outputs. A built-in relay powers external devices such as Wi-Fi or PoE switches. The advanced RoadRecorder 8000 is EN50155 certified for rolling stock/railway applications.
