Comprehensive Video Surveillance Solutions
With nearly 20 years of rapidly evolving technology, we have focused on keeping our pupil transportation customers current while meeting their unique budgetary and purchasing requirements. Most importantly, we never lose sight of what matters most - protecting the passengers entrusted to your care.
Why Use Video Surveillance?
School bus video surveillance solutions support transportation directors' and other school administrators' efforts to protect passengers, personnel, and property. These systems may help you:
- Decrease school-transportation related crashes
- Identify bullyies, vandals, and other offenders
- Reinforce driver accountability
- Document chain of events
- Substantiate or refute claims
- Manage video and audio files, easily and efficiently
Since 2003, there have been 1,353 people killed in school-transportation-related crashes—an average of 135 fatalities per year. Occupants of school transportation vehicles accounted for 8 percent of the fatalities, and nonoccupants (pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.) accounted for 21 percent of the fatalities. Most (71%) of the people who lost their lives in these crashes were occupants of other vehicles involved (Traffic Safety Facts:2003-2012 Data, DOT HS 811 890, NHTSA).

H.264, also known as MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), is the latest MPEG standard for video encoding. H.264 is quickly becoming the video standard of choice. This is because an H.264 encoder can, without compromising image quality, reduce the size of a digital video file by more than 80% compared with the Motion JPEG format and as much as 50% more than the MPEG-4 Part 2 standard. This means that much less network bandwidth and storage space are required for a video file. Or, as seen another way, a much higher video quality can be achieved for a given bit rate.
This information is important when helping you determine the drive size needed to store the appropriate amount of video. Most customers that we visit with are currently using recorders that utilize MJPEG; however a 1TB drive will only get 5 days worth of video. With H.264 they would be able to get up to 30 days worth of video with the same size drive.
H.264 is also important when considering wireless downloads. H.264 provides a smaller file size to download making it faster than using MJPEG or MPEG-4 Part 2.
