CCTV for railway

In security, modern trains are now equipped with multiple High Definition (HD) or 4k cameras in each carriage, and this data can be stored on-board for up to 90 days, and downloaded in station or depot to a data centre where access can be provided.  The driver may have access in real-time to all the camera information with displays, which also show the status of the doors and platforms for driver-only operation.  The driver also has to manage the train, with all its modern sensors, the traffic and signaling, emergency information, as well as his own time and route planning.  The regulatory or security need for advanced CCTV systems, typically now using IP technologies and Intel-based computers, ensures that a train is now connected, at least some of the time, to the Internet with a broadband connection. This is a major technical challenge.    
Advantech also provides on-board safety and security CCTV systems featuring H.264 high-definition image acquisition. They are fully equipped with IP-technology to provide comprehensive high-speed, high-bandwidth train network solutions tailored to the railway environment and certified to EN51055/EN50121-3-2 railway standards. System possibilities gave operator extreme storage density of 15mm HDD, video stream recorder up to 90 days, possibility to receive automatic alerts and utilizing connectivity solution for real-time live steams play.
