Live video streaming can be a crucial aid in monitoring valuable cargo transport, people transfers and the safety of drivers and vehicles. Whilst the mobile DVR and video streaming technology has been around for many years, low data speeds and video resolution has been a limiting factor. The MDVR8AHD-4G (8 channel 4G 1080p MDVR) Multi Channel Driver Recorder is now available from Fleetminder Australia.
Live video streaming DVR for security monitoring
Fleetminder GPS tracking solutions have released a new Mobile Digital Video Recorder (MDVR) model to provide fleet operators with superior vehicle tracking and video streaming and recording abilities.
They incorporate two major technological advancements for vehicle camera systems.
1) Improved video streaming data speed (4G)
The 4G mobile network provides at least six times faster data speeds in actual use over the 3G network. For live video streaming from a mobile DVR unit, 4G mobile speeds provides fewer dropouts, more reliable video feed and better quality video when your fleet vehicles are on the road.
The FM MDVR8AHD-4G is an 8-channel 4G mobile DVR with video streaming (allows up to 8 cameras to be connected). It allow for either a 1TB or 2TB hard drive to be fitted for local video storage.
2) A huge jump in video sharpness and resolution
When it comes to video quality you’ve probably seen low resolution video recordings where it’s almost impossible to identify the thief or vandal. Low quality video also makes recognition of vehicle licence plates and other features extremely difficult. The typical (analogue) vehicle security camera has been around for years. In terms of video resolution, these cameras were rated by the number of TV lines. Whilst higher resolution analogue vehicle video cameras are available (more TV lines), analogue signal technology is reaching its limit.
Even though vehicle cameras have CMOS/CCD digital sensors – the same that you have in your smartphone, those cameras convert the digital signal from the chip to analogue in order to travel down the typical video cable to the video recording unit (DVR). Newer technology – Analogue High Definition (AHD) video cameras were introduced around 2015. Since their introduction, AHD cameras are now becoming more affordable and popular. AHD cameras are available in 720p, 960p and 1080p. These cameras can only be used with compatible monitors and MVDR’s, generally noted by the AHD in the model name. A typical analogue camera equates to about 0.4 MP (megapixels) of typically VGA resolution, whereas a AHD camera – full HD (1920 x 1080p) provides 2 MP (megapixels) resolution. AHD camera technology will provide clearer, more detailed video quality.
Neltronics offers a wide range of vehicle AHD cameras including front facing internal cameras, heavy duty external rear and side cameras.
