EXHIBITOR PROFILE: Aussie-listed tech firm DTI will include some of the products that helped it win the 22-train Sydney Metro CCTV contract at its AusRAIL stand next week.

DTI recently announced it had won the contract to supply passenger information and CCTV systems for trains being delivered to the Sydney Metro Northwest project by Alstom. The order is expected to commence later this financial year.

The contract will equip each train with:

  • a digital surveillance system with removable 8 terabyte hard disk drives and communications infrastructure for system management and data downloads
  • 24 internal and two forward-facing, high-definition IP rail rated cameras
  • an IP-based audio communications system for public address with 60 interior and exterior speakers, hearing aid loops, and an automated voice announcement system, directed by computer and GPS to announce next stop, door open and close and other messages
  • 30 passenger information intercom units
  • external LED-driven destination indication signs, 48-inch wide-screen LCD route displays, and internal passenger information displays – all IP-based and digitally-controlled in conjunction with the audio system
  • a driver display screen which provides status information and also interfaces with the surveillance system to provide low-latency live views from all cameras in up to six cars on the train, plus a second six-car coupled train

“As part of the proposed contract, DTI’s CCTV system will also allow video evidence to be recovered from the trains through an on-line automated CCTV ‘booking’  system providing ongoing benefits through the easy management of equipment, video retrieval and video storage,” the company added.

DTI business development manager Arthur Constantinou told Rail Express the company, which has exhibited at AusRAIL a number of times in the past, will have several pieces of new technology to show off at its stand this year.

“At this event we will have on display our newly released Transit Grade CCTV Camera, our latest IP-based MDR6 Network Video Recorder, and a working demonstration of our own Dynamic Route Map Display,” Constantinou said.

“We will be focusing this year on conveying the distinct advantages of our Total product solutions and offerings to the Australian and Global rail markets, and why [companies] should use DTI.”

DTI will exhibit at Stand 727 at AusRAIL PLUS 2015, set to take place in Melbourne from November 24 to 26.
