New Jersey Transit Boosts Safety Initiatives with Railhead Video Systems
Burr Ridge, IL – Railhead Corporation has recently completed the shipment of nearly 190 high-definition onboard video systems to New Jersey Transit (NJT). The addition of these systems provides NJT with the latest video technology as well as access to crucial operational and system information. Railhead’s new LDVRHD-12 video system and Fleet-Wide Tracking Router (FWT) will enable NJT management to respond to situations and incidents quickly while maintaining the highest level of safety and service for their customers.
Railhead supplied NJT with the latest Digital Video Recorder capable of supporting 12 cameras. NJT’s system consists of Railhead’s 360° and interior dome cameras installed throughout the passenger areas of the NJT coach cars and trailer cars. The strategic location of the cameras gives NJT complete coverage and visibility to activities on their trains, improving their ability to respond to incidents.
The new LDVRHD-12 video system also includes FWT router capabilities that provides NJT with the ability to live-stream video, initiate remote downloads of video, take a snapshot image or view the health of the system.
“Railhead’s systems are designed and manufactured specifically for the heavy rail environments.”, said Fred Cozzi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Railhead. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with New Jersey Transit on helping them to reduce maintenance and operating costs and improve efficiency. We’ve had a great relationship with NJT during the implementation of this system and it’s been a pleasure working with them to support their safety initiatives. While Railhead’s video system will help NJT mitigate risk and reduce liability in the event of an incident, the real benefit is the improved safety and security for NJT’s passengers.”
