‘This conference provides a rare and valuable
opportunity for the key players in this sector to meet
and debate the latest advancements’ Andy Odell, UK
Association of Train Operating Companies.
Rail CCTV 2013, hosted by transport and

provides a rare opportunity for those involved in
this sector to get together and compare problems,
solutions, standards and progress and above all to
assess the future.
The Conference is the only event to focus

IP cameras.

Around the world a vast and growing army of CCTV
cameras stand guard over trains, platforms and
passengers. Increasingly, these silent witnesses can
not only record events, but can track suspects,
capture evidence, help avoid crimes or
over-crowding and even save lives. Ever-more
sophisticated management systems and reporting
tools are helping train operators and rail authorities
put the CCTV army to more productive uses. Find
out where this multi-million euro industry is heading
at Rail CCTV 2013.
