Kansas City Area Transportation Authority Purchases ShiftWatch® TVS� � High Resolution Digital Video Surveillance System

A4S Technologies, Inc., a leading high resolution digital video recorder manufacturer for transportation, law enforcement, and military applications, announces the selection of it’s patent pending ShiftWatch® TVS™ Transportation Video Surveillance System by the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority. Starting in June of 2004, all new buses being incorporated into their fleet will include these revolutionary new video surveillance systems.

Bob Kohler, Director of Transportation, KCATA, says, “It’s the best full motion digital video we’ve ever seen in a mobile security surveillance application; it’s already paid for itself.” With 60 frames per second (30 per channel) and full 720 X 480 resolution, it brings DVD quality audio and video to your security environment. Sharon Teague, Customer Relations Manager, KCATA, says, “No more viewing choppy video with the hopes of exposing risk management fraud. Now we get a clear detailed account of the events.”

The ShiftWatch® TVS™ system uses an established MPEG-2 digital video format (same as DVDs) that is viewable through most standard media players (Windows Media Player, QuickTime, Real Player, etc.) to send video clips of important events across networks for convenient company review. It also solves the media management dilemma by providing the most cost-effective way to extract video from vehicles without having to buy costly additional hard drives. ShiftWatch® TVS™ focuses on being “a total solution” for 100% digital video surveillance with both security and risk management protection.

The benefits to using a high resolution full motion recorder is evident in reducing risk management expense and providing increased safety for bus operators. Choppy or low resolution video limits the usefulness of any video, but using any of the ShiftWatch® system recorders provides crystal clear broadcast quality video making the system pay for itself in record time over traditional digital video systems.

A4S Technologies, Inc. located in Kalispell, Montana with engineering and development facilities in Loveland, Colorado manufactures a variety of digital video surveillance systems including, In-Car Mobile Digital Video Systems, Public Transportation Systems, Stationary Video Surveillance Solutions, Tactical Surveillance System for law enforcement and digital video server systems designed for the US military.

All of these systems utilize non proprietary software for playback which provides extreme flexibility when managing or reconstructing incidents.
