A new Horizon for remote CCTV downloads

21st Century today launches Horizon; a new software solution developed to optimise the procedure used by rail operators to remotely download CCTV footage. The new web based platform allows users to schedule automatic download of footage from a train remotely over 3G or Wi-Fi.

In the past a download would need to start from the beginning if connectivity was lost during the download period.  The new software developed by 21st Century simply requires a date and time of an incident or specific journey for the download to commence. The system will automatically remember the position of the download if it is interrupted and will commence from that point.

Garry Bellman, Divisional Manager – Rail for 21st Century Technology, comments:

"This new software will be invaluable for users in areas with a weak signal.  In the past, interrupted downloads have to start again and this process often repeats several times before a complete download can be achieved.  This will speed up the process considerably.”
