Christie Video Wall Technology Installed in Mobile Police Department Joint Operations Center
Technology upgrade features Christie Phoenix and Christie LCD flat panels
Upgrading the JOC gave Mobile Police Department one of the tools it needed to enable intelligence-
"The mentality of how the police department functions has gone from a mechanism of responding to crimes and proactive patrol to an intelligence-
The JOC video wall comprises a 3 x 6 array of Christie FHD552-X 55-inch narrow bezel LCD panels and 11 Christie Phoenix information management system nodes.
"I decided after looking at Christie's products that the Christie Phoenix systems and Christie LCD flat panels would be the most forward-thinking pieces of technology that we could offer," says Gary Crumbley, Atlantic Video Corporation, of the video wall solution. "What really attracted me to Christie Phoenix is the fact that it is an H.264 open platform, so that you can truly collaborate with other folks. In the event that we build another video wall in another location, they can share all of the resources between those two video walls if they wish to."
"I think the main driving factor is that we didn't buy a bunch of monitors. We bought a platform that allows us to interact with Intelligence, and that's priceless," says Levy.
One of the initiatives of the Technology and Cyber Intelligence Unit is "Project Shield". Through public and private partnerships, Mobile Police Department has access to over 3,900 live camera feeds throughout the city. The feeds are available to call up for real-time streaming onto the video wall in the JOC if a crime is in action, or to assist in an investigation or evidence collection.
"We challenge ourselves to determine how many cameras we can put up here and watch at one time, and how many maps can we put up on the wall. We do this so that we can prepare for any type of incident that happens," says Levy.
