Outfitting an Emergency Operations Center With Video Walls
When crises emerge, municipalities turn to their Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for quick help.
With the addition of a video wall, any EOC is better equipped to deal with both man-made and natural disasters.
Read on to see why a video wall is fitting in any Emergency Operations Center.
Video Wall Solutions for Your Emergency Operations Center
An Emergency Operations Center With Real-Time Situational Awareness
With a video wall, employees at your Emergency Operations Center can have all the information they need on an easy-to-view display Seeing crucial real-time information provides full situational awareness to the Emergency Operations Center. This can include video feeds from security cameras, satellite or cable news feeds, networked computers, recording devices, conferencing systems, etc.. Your video wall can show one large image or multiple images across the screen that can be moved or rearranged as needed.
Large Screen, High Resolution, Small Footprint
With high definition displays, you’ll have the highest quality video and text. Since today’s video wall displays are extremely bright, ambient light in the room is no longer an issue. Best of all, your video wall will make a big visual impact while maintaining a small footprint. Your Emergency Operations Center won’t be cluttered by individual monitoring systems requiring extensive cabling, networking, desks, and other infrastructure. You can take advantage of the height of your walls without losing precious floor space.
Options That Aren’t Available on Individual Screens
While individual screens can function as monitoring devices in an Emergency Operations Center, they can’t match the display capabilities of a fully-integrated video wall. Staff will be able to size and place images anywhere on the wall using a mouse and keyboard or even touchscreen functions. You can completely customize what is displayed and how it appears, whereas for individual displays, options are limited. Plus, adding a video wall to the Emergency Operations Center will allow all employees to view multiple types of content at once, rather than viewing content on separate displays.
