Plustek Announces In-Vehicle DVR Systems Now Available With 4G

4G, That Works With Most of US Carriers, Allows for a Faster and More Stable Network for Vehicle Surveillance

SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2014) - Plustek Security, a leading manufacturer of security surveillance video recorders, announced today that 4G is now available in its all-in-one in-vehicle surveillance DVR systems, VX-C540 (4ch) and VX-C580 (8ch), designed for public transportation vehicles.

Compared to early-generation networks, 4G provides a wider bandwidth, resulting in faster data-transfer speed. This creates a better environment for video transmission, especially for in-vehicle use. With Plustek's 4G all-in-one, in-vehicle DVRs, control centers have the ability to see real-time video with live audio.

Through the built-in GPIO control (4x input and 2x output), more connection integration can be made, such as the ability to engage a silent panic button. When an alert has been triggered, the signal can be transmitted through the 4G network and immediately sent to the control center, allowing for immediate response.

"This fully-integrated 4G system provides a control center with an excellent surveillance tool with remote access to the vehicle for viewing live footage, which allows for instantaneous interaction with the driver," said Robert Fuchs, Plustek's Marketing Manager. "All of our in-vehicle recorders offer flawless playback of crisp-looking video, in your most critical time of need."

The DVR is also equipped with WiFi, offering a convenient access point to retrieve recorded video footage, in a secure and reliable way. WiFi enables fast and cost-effective backups to access recorded video, it also opens up more efficient system maintenance alternatives. The surveillance system can be set up to record video footage and automatically back up or download the footage any time the vehicle is in range of a WiFi network.

Plustek will be showcasing various mobile surveillance recorders, including the 4G in-vehicle DVR systems VX-C540 and VX-C580, at the APTA Expo from October 13-15 in Houston. Plustek will be at booth number 1900.
