Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown credits the Fusion Center, its technology and other new initiatives for reducing crime in Dallas for the eighth consecutive year. States Chief Brown, “It’s about policing smarter, using the information and technology that is available to outsmart the criminal element.”
Creevy adds that “Christie MicroTiles self-calibrate and are designed for maximum image quality in high ambient light environments, such as the Dallas Fusion Center.”
Commented Fusion Center Commander Lt. Thomasson, “With the Fusion Center’s advanced technology, we are fighting crime more intelligently in the City of Dallas. Our detectives have quicker access to information that can be shared responsibly with one another, with other departments and with the patrol officers working the streets.”
“Today’s control rooms go beyond traditional displaying and monitoring. Integrated technology allows information to be shared anywhere; quickly, accurately, and effortlessly,”
Christie MicroTiles have built-in sensors monitoring each LED’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness and color continuously for the life of the display. Built with reliable solid-state components, including LEDs rated at 65,000 hours to half brightness, no lamps or consumables need to be replaced for more than seven years. Using the strengths of both DLP® projection and LED technology, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays. With no practical limit to the number of tiles in a display, Christie MicroTiles produce a virtually seamless canvas with an unlimited number of super-fine pixels.
