The average user may not know whether it is encrypted or not. Ask some of our users and they would probably give you a funny look if you asked them

I don't think I'd have signed the release for the footage to be shown as it would have probably ended up with me in bother at work even though our laptops are encrypted.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what the iPads in the cab of that VTEC train was for?

Most of the shots I'm sure it was just showing a display saying 0MPH but in one shot it was flashing and making an alert and the screen showed "APPROACHING..." and I couldn't make out the rest!

Probably a DAS system I would guess, but I didn't actually notice it myself.

Yes it was DAS. Not sure why it was showing 0, the number on DAS screen normally shows train length. Maybe wasn't set up.

So what's a DAS? Just general information about your train and your timecard?
