Citilog sees new horizons for camera capability
First publishedITS America
Prior to its official launch at IMSA 2015, Citilog is providing a sneak preview of a new NEMA and Caltrans-compliant interface board which allows up to six cameras to be connected to traffic light controllers and to stream video back to traffic control rooms. Developed in conjunction with Peek, the new board does not need to be configured via a computer and is interoperable between the two systems.
According to business development manager Irv Rosenblum, the new card will be the platform for the next generation of traffic control systems. Also highlighted is the latest generation of Citilog’s XCam cameras which feature power over Ethernet (PoE) and H.264 for video streaming and recording. With a power consumption of only 3W, the unit can be powered by a solar panel/battery combination for use in remote locations, and the company says it is an ideal solution for, among other things, detecting wrong-way drivers.
