Cobra Debuts Global Live CCTV Monitoring System At Coach And Bus Live
Cobra, a leader in the provision of security, safety and telematics solutions for the automotive, commercial vehicle and passenger transport industries is to premier its Global Live CCTV monitoring security system at the Coach and Bus Live exhibition 2011 at the NEC on 5-6 October.This
Interior cameras monitor the driver and passenger areas 24/7, audibly and visually, to protect employees, passengers and assets from a wide range of high risk or problem situations. Forward facing cameras can also be set up to monitor driving standards or to be used as evidence in the event of an accident caused by a driver or third party.
Highly trained personnel at the Cobra Secure Operating Centre (SOC) can monitor footage in real time and download images and data to keep an eye on vehicles both en route and when parked. GPS tracking enables the pinpoint location of the vehicle at any time. A live demonstration of the system will be available on the Cobra stand K67.
Cobra sees the system affording extra security to VIPs in transit, as well as offering drivers and passengers additional peace of mind and protecting assets from vandalism on late night bus routes. As the CCTV footage is admissible as evidence in court it will also help protect operators and their assets from fraudulent claims against the business such as staged accidents or hijackings.
Global Live will also help monitor and protect high profile musicians, their trucks, buses and equipment when they are on tour.
“Should a vehicle equipped with Global Live technology be subject to attack, CCTV streaming shows SOC Staff what is happening in real time and they can react accordingly,” said Andrew Smith, Managing Director, Cobra UK.
“This unique live CCTV monitoring system enhances our commitment to improve the safety and security of drivers and their passengers, and could help bus operators negotiate insurance discounts as they lower the risk of their vehicles. Global Live is equally suitable for monitoring and protecting of remote or unmanned sites, such as storage depots.”
Cobra’s Global Live system is a bespoke solution. The number and position of cameras can be tailored to the needs of individual customers and can be further personalised with the enhancement of personal attack buttons and enhanced infra red cameras.
