Seon’s New 8-Channel Mobile DVR Delivers Value and Performance for Transit and School Bus Surveillance

Seon introduces the Explorer TX8 - a GPS and WiFi-ready mobile DVR with built-in features ideal for AVL integration.

Coquitlam, Canada, June 14, 2012 --( Seon Design adds the Explorer TX8, a next generation, 8-channel mobile DVR, to its line of reliable video surveillance solutions for the transit and student transportation industries. Designed for advanced mobile surveillance applications, the TX8 gives bus operators powerful features like geo-fencing and a built-in G-sensor essential for AVL integration and monitoring driver behavior.

“The TX8 is a perfect combination of value and performance,” says Peter Simmons, Director of Marketing at Seon. “The dual hard drives offer a fail-safe design and, with up to 2 TB of storage capacity, allow for maximum video retention time.”

An 8-channel DVR, the TX8 delivers reliable, advanced quality video with up to 30 FPS (per camera) at 720 x 480 resolution. With H.264 compression, the TX8 provides great image quality for any mobile surveillance application.

Users can also reduce liability and system downtime with automated Health Check when integrated with vMax Live Plus. The Health Check feature monitors DVR and hard drive status in real-time so that bus operators know that their system is working properly at all times.
