Brigade to launch 3G recording system at CV Show
Published: 10 March, 2017
Brigade Electronics will launch its new 3G enabled digital recording system at the CV Show in April.
The new mobile digital recording system (MDR) allows operators to remotely access footage and other vehicle information such as speed and location in real time. The standard MDR has been one of Brigade’s most sought after products in recent years but now the company can offer a fully managed and hosted 3G solution.
The new service allows operators remote access and live streaming of footage from up to eight vehicle mounted cameras. Immediate access to data is invaluable; in the event of an incident, to refute claims, asses which party is culpable and reassure drivers in the event of an emergency.
The managed service includes a 3G SIM card and access to Brigade’s hosted server. By hosting the service, Brigade is able to identify any SIM or network issues through remote diagnostics, saving the customer valuable time and resource. Customers have the choice to access footage via the Brigade dashboard or by downloading the app on their phones.
Brigade will also be releasing their improved Sidescan. Following feedback of driver annoyance, the buzzer now silences when there is no danger present and resumes once motion is detected. And a new optional extra is the Sidescan OSD Module which provides the driver with an on-screen display of the detection area.
The Brigade team will be on hand to discuss their new leasing scheme which enables fleet operators to spread the cost of vehicle safety devices, especially where large amounts of equipment are required for site specifications and tenders.
Brigade’s marketing manager Emily Hardy said: ‘The great thing about leasing is that, unlike hire purchases, it actually makes products cheaper because payments are fully deductible against pre-tax profits thereby reducing payments in real terms. For instance the capital cost of £25,000 is reduced by £1,190 once tax relief has been applied.
‘When our customers realise the savings they are making they tell us that they can’t afford not to lease products, leaving valuable capital for more strategic purposes.’
