A total of 570 MD8563-EH cameras are deployed in the MRT system: 18 cameras are installed in each of the10 four-car trains and 26 ones in each of the 15 six-car trains, Vivotek said.

Taiwan-based Glory Technology, a subcontractor for planning and design for the railway communications system used in the MRT trains, selected Vivotek-developed MD8563-EH, Vivotek indicated.

Besides MRT trains, mobile dome network cameras can be used in public buses and railway trains, Vivotek said.
