SDI to deliver end-to-end solution featuring industry-leading Nextiva Transit Solution from Verint Video Intelligence Solutions for enhanced security and customer service
Los Angeles, June 3, 2010 — SDI (System Development.Integration, LLC), systems integrator specializing in public sector security technologies and infrastructure, announces that it has been contracted by Omnitrans, an operator of public transit in San Bernardino County, California, to deliver an On-Board Video/Audio Surveillance System (OBVSS) to be installed on 167 of their buses. The $1.96M project, partially financed with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds, will provide Omnitrans with a complete suite of mobile digital video, audio and metadata functionality, as well as on-board 802.11 wireless LAN capabilities, GPS integration, and a driver-triggered emergency alarm button.
Building on its credentials in deploying large-scale, mission-critical public safety and security systems for the transit industry, SDI will implement the industry-leading Nextiva® mDVR™ Mobile Digital Video Recorder transit video solution from Verint® Video Intelligence Solutions™. The SDI Team will provision eight cameras per bus, covering the entire interior and exterior of each bus, as well as on-board G-Force sensors, digital system status modules, and LCD monitors. The system will be fully integrated with Omnitrans’ central video management, maintenance, and archiving systems, and linked to Omnitrans two maintenance facilities via an SDI-architected wireless network. SDI will furnish all OBVSS equipment, server/storage, and spare inventory, including a three-year warranty period for all system components. SDI, along with its partner Kodiak Mobile Installations, will provide Omnitrans with on-going technical support that includes a toll-free warranty/support hotline with 24×7 availability.
Omnitrans is a public transit agency providing 50,000 passenger trips each weekday in the San Bernardino Valley of Southern California. Founded in 1976 through a joint powers agreement, Omnitrans carries over 15 million passengers each year throughout its 480-square mile service area encompassing 1.2 million people residents. “The OBVSS system is another extension of the agency’s drive to increase the security and customer satisfaction of our riders,” says P. Scott Graham, Director of Operations for Omnitrans. “With quicker access to greater visual coverage of our bus environment, Omnitrans will have more data to fine tune our customer’s experience, as well as to quickly and efficiently secure the safety of our drivers and passengers.”
SDI offers Omnitrans 19 years of experience in deploying security technology systems within a live transportation environment. “SDI brings disciplined project planning and execution diligence needed to install OBVSS on an active fleet without impacting its operations,” said Mark Moscinski, SDI Senior Vice President of Safety and Security. “The strength of our core business of mission-critical technical support will keep Omnitrans’ system at peak operation throughout the life of the project.”
The SDI Team, which includes Verint, Kodiak and TransIT Solutions, was selected based on the combination of its transit industry qualifications; proven project management and deployment approach; strength of the Verint technical solution; and best overall financial value to Omnitrans. This contract extends SDI’s strong reputation in the security space within the transit industry, and adds to SDI’s growing client base in its targeted Los Angeles market.
