Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2012

Safety Vision, the leader in multimedia fleet automation, is pleased to announce an exclusive agreement with Blue Bird, the leading manufacturer of school and activity buses, to resell the industry’s first stand-alone, High Definition Stop Arm Camera System into the aftermarket through Blue Bird’s vast North American dealer network.

“Safety is at the forefront of all objectives and decisions at Blue Bird. With this exciting agreement, Blue Bird dealers and customers will have access to the industry’s most advanced solution for addressing the epidemic of stop arm violations on school buses,” said Don Nichols, vice president of parts for Blue Bird Corporation. “In addition to the High Definition Stop Arm Camera System exclusivity, this agreement also allows our dealer network and customers premiere access to Safety Vision’s proven product line of recorders, cameras and fleet tracking systems. Blue Bird is pleased to partner with an industry-leading company such as Safety Vision, which has nearly two decades of proven experience in offering mobile video solutions.”

The Safety Vision High Definition Stop Arm Camera System is a turnkey, stand-alone system incorporating a megapixel image sensor and solid state recording inside a rugged, weatherproof IP67/IK10 rated enclosure. Utilizing the built-in I/O ports, the system can be configured to record in crystal clear, high definition 1080P or 3MP (megapixel) mode when the stop arm is actuated. All video is recorded in real time, 30 frames per second, and utilize H.264 compression to maximize recording times on the built-in, 32GB solid state media.

“Studies indicate that the average school bus experiences three stop arm violations each week,” said Bruce Smith, president and CEO of Safety Vision. “Our new High Definition Stop Arm Camera System is a perfect fit for addressing this danger because it is a standalone system which does not require additional equipment or costly integration with third-party hardware or software. We are thrilled to partner with an innovative leader such as Blue Bird and further provide its vast North American dealers and customers with this exclusive game changing product.”

Blue Bird will debut the exclusive Safety Vision Stop Arm Camera System next month at the STN Expo in Reno, Nevada.
