ACAP and New technology – new
Whether you run a service with a few or tens of
thousands of vehicles in the fleet, network video
makes a noticeable improvement in your Balance
Sheet. The introduction of network video has
revolutionized the way public transportation
professionals work with passenger experience,
passenger behaviour, safety, security and vandalism.
Network video provides a whole new set of tools to
reach operational excellence.
Applications and services executed in the camera make
it even easier. ACAP, the Axis Camera Application
Platform, a runtime environment for Video Analytic
applications executed directly in the camera, make the
camera an intelligent device. The applications, we call
them ACApps, Axis Camera Applications, is easy to
install and make the video solution independent of
other infrastructure components like local NVR, NAS,
PC server’s etc.

Axis Camera: The BIT VMS is developed for the
high-performance AXIS Network Cameras specially
designed for video surveillance in buses, trains, subway
cars and emergency vehicles. The rugged and discreet
AXIS cameras have protection against dust and water,
and can withstand tough conditions such as vibrations,
shocks, bumps and temperature fluctuations. In
addition, the cameras' active tampering alarm can
detect tampering attempts such as blocking or spraypainting. The cameras are specially adapted to respond
quickly to changes in light levels, ensuring that high
image quality is maintained even in difficult, low or high,
light conditions. The BIT ACApp take advantage of the
storage capacity provided in the camera.
ACAP Store: Observit Acap Store, a central
marketplace and distribution platform for intelligent and
smart video analytics applications for Axis cameras and
AXIS Camera Application Platform, ACAP , is an open
platform that enables application developers to develop
and sell the Axis - compatible applications.
Observit Acap Store will do deployment of BIT ACApps
software available quick and easy.
With Acap Store Observit partners can deploy Observit
BIT to their customers in a new way by selling,
distributing BIT ACApps directly to their customers'
cameras, over the net, hassle free.
Communcation: The Observit BIT VMS is taking
fully advantage of IP technology, the high quality Axis
cameras and the possibilities to make the solution a
remote and monitored solution. The communication
needed is 3G / LTE or wifi. The BIT VMS will work even if
communication in the vehicle will be lost during
operation. BIT have no other requirements than to have
communication, monitored and managed
communication preferred.

BIT VMS is an IP based CCTV system, VSaaS, where the
customer are able to setup the system in the cloud
quick and easy.
Setup the preferred system info. Register your
company and system name. Create the logical units as
garage, depots, harbours etc and the vehicles or similar
that will have cameras installed.
Install the camera in the vehicle and the BIT ACApp in
the camera and the system is up and running.
Observit VMS
In the BIT VMS solution the organisation will register
and manage the CCTV system in the cloud. All in an
easy-to-use web interface. Setting up company info,
preferred organisational structure as garage, depots
and physical locations for the camera, if they are
BIT VMS is a professional video surveillance solution.
The well recognised Observit central management and
monitoring solution serves as a solid backend. This is a
reliable and stable platform for the the BIT VMS. All
devices and units are monitored and managed through
the central webbased system called OMS. Total control
of system, devices, inventory, logfiles etc, as well as
management and organisation of the logical structure
of depots, vehicles and functionality.
The the BIT ACApp will keep all your unique customized
settings for the camera.
The ACApp will handle recordings and settings, upload
requests, keep log and report status and alarms and
communicate all info to the central webbased VMS.
BIT also communicates with other cameras within the
same local net, called BITcc, “BIT camera cluster”. The
BITcc could be the cameras in a single bus or similar.
Using BITcc, cameras in the unique BITcc will
communicate with each other and cooperate to create
a rich and functional environment.
Within the BITcc cluster the cameras will be able
optimize usage of network capacity at upload of
recordings. The cameras will cooperate and monitor
each other within the cluster, perform corrective
actions automatically, typical a camera could try to
restart another camera etc.
BITcc will manage and reduce the traffic from a BITcc
cluster to the central BIT VMS. One unit collecting
status from the other units in the cluster, reporting the
total cluster status to the VMS.
The network load from the BITcc system is normally
very low. At upload of videos the BITcc will handle the
upload in an optimal way for the current network and
connection. Even if the communication is unstable the
upload will be handled in a very intelligent way and no
videos will be lost in transfer.
If GPS is provided GPS info could be consolidated and
merged with the video on the server side.
The BIT ACApp could be installed locally, over the web
using ACAP Store, or pre-installed.

Observit Video Systems
Sustainable remote system – reduce C0 2 and lower cost
Remote management and access is one of the advantages of installing and operating hosted video.
You don’t need to physically handle the camera to investigate an incident. Instead, you can see and
analyze the material from a distance using a computer/device, and then take appropriate action.
Alarm operator significantly reduces the number of emergency call-outs. One study shows that as
much as 90 percent (!) of all call-outs are false alarms. Every call-out adds considerable costs in
terms of transportation time, gas and vehicle maintenance, and generates unnecessary CO 2
Remote access also facilitates the maintenance of the Video surveillance system. Camera
maintenance, upgrades, diagnostics, troubleshooting and retrieving image material.
A camera with remote access reduces the number of maintenance visits by
about 50 percent.
A reduction in both CO2 emissions and costs quickly becomes evident as a result of less driving
time, less fuel, lower vehicle costs and less time spent on performing camera maintenance.
Example: Eight hours reduction in retrieving, delivering and management of hard-disks with video,
50 km driving per incident, once a year, in 1.000 vehicles, results in total savings of 62 ton CO2
emission and aprox. € 1.9M over a five-year period.
Avoiding physical retrieval and management of hard disks in 1.000
vehicles over a five-years period, the Mobile Video Surveillance
system from Observit will save:
€1 900 000
62 ton CO2 emissions
25 000 liters of fuel
