March Networks Adds New Megapixel Cameras to Transportation Video Solution
The new March Networks IP cameras are well suited for transit operators ready to upgrade from analog to high-definition surveillance video.
OTTAWA, Ontario — March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, introduces new mobile IP cameras to its complete transportation solution for bus, light rail and passenger rail fleets.
The cameras are purpose-built to withstand demanding mobile environments and capture consistently clear video in near darkness, bright daylight and the abrupt lighting transitions that occur when vehicles enter and exit tunnels and underpasses, according to the company.
They are also fully integrated with March Networks RideSafe Series network video recorders and easily managed with March Networks Command for Transit software.
All the new mobile cameras also include optional, onboard storage to ensure continuous video recording, even if recorder connectivity is lost due to a power outage.
Details of each camera model are below.
The Mobile ME4 IR MicDome combines 4MP resolution with high dynamic range (HDR) and powerful infrared (IR) LEDs to capture sharp, detailed images in varied lighting. Packaged in a small, durable housing, the camera incorporates a built-in microphone and is IP66 (weatherproofing), SAE J1455 and EN50155 (shock and vibration) and IK10 (vandal-resistance) certified.

The Mobile HDR Forward Facing camera can be mounted on a dashboard or ceiling and comes with an optional, anti-glare cone to minimize windshield glare and reflection. Its combination of HDR and 3MP resolution ensures exceptionally clear video, while features such as a weatherproof, vandal-resistant (IP67 / IK10) aluminum housing make it ideal for rugged transit applications.
The Mobile HDR Wedge is designed to capture high-definition 3MP video from the exterior of a bus or passenger rail train. The camera includes built-in heaters and vents to prevent condensation and fogging, a weatherproof vandal-resistant (IP67 / IK10) housing, and SAE J1455 and EN50155 certifications.
The Evolution 05 Mini Panel Mount and Evolution 05 Mini Outdoor cameras introduce advanced 360-degree surveillance to March Networks’ transportation solution via a strategic partnership with Oncam, the leader in 360-degree technology. With 5MP sensors and no moving parts, the cameras are EN50155 certified, come with multiple mounting options, are available in black or white models, and are fully integrated with March Networks Command software for powerful client-side de-warping.
