One of the UK’s leading providers of intelligent traffic enforcement and management systems, Videalert, has announced the immediate availability of new functionality for its widely-used Digital Video Platform (DVP).
Videalert’s DVP software system allows civil traffic enforcement, traffic management, community safety and crime prevention applications to be quickly and easily deployed without requiring specific CCTV equipment for every network point or node. The system offers local authorities and agencies multiple applications, including:
• Moving traffic offences, including bus lanes, banned turns and yellow box junctions;
• Access and weight restrictions;
• Parking offences on school ‘keep clears’;
• Real-time vehicle data for average journey time monitoring through UTMC;
• Real time vehicle count data for traffic modelling and congestion management;
• Real-time data to identify suspect vehicles through BOFII (Police Back Office Facility);
• Automatic car park entry/exit and tolling.
The enhancements to the DVP aids its ‘usability’ and simultaneously supports the enforcement of diverse civil traffic contraventions, traffic management, and community safety applications. This includes integration with mobile enforcement vehicles from third party suppliers, including TES and SEA, a new analytics engine, and an upgraded Evidence Pack Review Suite, all of which will result in significant productivity improvements for councils and other users.
Videalert’s new analytics engine has been equipped with the latest algorithms that provide additional layers of intelligence to enhance the evidence capture process. The company says it will further increase detection rates and reduce the incidence of false alerts to deliver industry-leading levels of productivity at the low operating costs.
Videalert’s Evidence Pack Review Suite has also been upgraded with the addition of new fields to display more detailed DVLA (UK Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) data and allow reviewers to add notes explaining the reasons that PCNs (Penalty Charge Notices) have been issued in borderline cases, which will help to speed up the evidence pack review process.
“We are the first manufacturer to integrate our platform with other suppliers of civil traffic enforcement systems, such as Mobile Enforcement Vehicles from SEA and TES,” noted Tim Daniels, Videalert’s sales and marketing director.
“Using a single platform in this way allows councils to take a phased approach to migrating from existing systems that are still operational. This will help to extend the ROI (Return On Investment) of existing assets and reduce support costs.”
