Digital Barriers, a provider of surveillance products to the security and defence sectors, reports a £1m contract to supply TVI vehicle-borne video surveillance to a law enforcement agency in the Asia Pacific region. An initial £0.8 million contract for the first stage of a major multi-year fleet upgrade was secured in February 2015 and this contract marks the first follow-on award as that programme continues to be rolled out.
This follows the announcement by Milestone Systems of the inclusion of TVI integration in the latest release of their XProtect video management software, which will enable adoption of TVI by customers.
Digital Barriers says that its TVI offers secure distribution of real-time video from anywhere to anywhere, featuring end-to-end security, resilience and network optimisation that can stream usable live video using 60pc less bandwidth than standard technologies it is claimed. This enables TVI to deliver significant capability benefits and material cost savings over competing technologies, according to the firm. TVI has already been sold into more than 30 countries, and counts defence and security agencies as its customers, as well as commercial organisations.
Zak Doffman, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Barriers said: “Our TVI video streaming technology has the potential to become the de facto solution for major law enforcement agencies. The technology offers very material advantages over competing solutions and has repeatedly won out in all its head to head trials and tests against competing products. This follow-on contract is an endorsement of our technology from one of Asia’s most significant law enforcement agencies – TVI was the only solution that met their specified performance requirements and we have quickly become a trusted supplier.”
