Visual Defence Inc., a security convergence company, announced Tuesday, Jan. 8, that its centralized mobile video surveillance solution encompassing its Mobile Digital Video Storage Solution (DVSSm) and Virtual Matrix System (VMS) server and software is Motomesh-ready. Visual Defence says this validation affirms that its mobile surveillance solution satisfactorily enables viewing, transmitting and managing of live and recorded video and data across the Motorola Motomesh wireless broadband network.

Visual Defence says its centralized mobile video surveillance system was tested successfully at multiple Motomesh radio frequencies, definitively establishing its ability to provide first responders with real-time live and recorded video to enable faster, better-informed emergency response, as well as heightened public safety and security within mobile environments like buses and trains.

Each vehicle is installed with IP cameras and a Visual Defence DVSSm unit. The DVSSm communicates with the Motorola Motomesh radio and transmits video via the router and network switch to the Visual Defence VMS server located within a central monitoring center. Live and recorded video is viewed using the VMS SoftClient within the central monitoring center, as well as on laptops in the field that are connected wirelessly, giving users real-time mobile access to video information, the company says. Highly flexible and scalable, the centralized mobile video surveillance solution can accommodate the addition of vehicles to the fleet, as well as additional mobile and fixed cameras to monitor public spaces, as requirements expand, according to Visual Defence.

“Visual Defence is extremely pleased to be officially recognized as Motomesh-ready,” says Dagan Sadeh, chief executive officer of Richmond Hill, Ontario-based Visual Defence. “The goals of Visual Defence and Motorola are strategically aligned within the public safety and security space. This means that for those organizations and municipalities who have already installed a mesh network, they can quickly deploy a proven and tested mobile surveillance security solution. For those who are currently exploring the idea of expanding their fixed network to extend their security program to open and mobile public places, the Motomesh network is an extremely cost-effective solution.”
