Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) video wall installations in Bristol City Council’s security operations centre have completed 25,000 hours of continuous operation.

 

Made up of 55-inch 24/7 grade LCD displays with narrow bezels, the three video walls are critical components of a multi-purpose facility that brings together many of the city’s critical support services and acts as a control centre in the event of major emergencies.

 

The Operations centre has been operational since February 2017 and houses what used to be the council’s Emergency Control Centre, Traffic Control Centre and Community Safety (CCTV) Control Rooms together in a single space for the first time. Teams provide essential public safety services that utilise around 700 CCTV cameras in the city.

 

UVS installed a curved video wall made up of 12 displays for monitoring a wide range of data including mapping, traffic monitoring and live CCTV images, and two video wall controllers and inputs to allow operational staff and visitors to display tablet and mobile device data on the displays. It also provides an annual maintenance contract. 

 

The company also installed a conference/incident video wall made up of four display, with access to the same data, and a smaller police incident monitoring video wall.

 

Peter Anderson, Head of Connected City Service at Bristol City Council, says:

"Having a high quality and resilient monitoring wall is essential in providing a world class service that’s help keep the city safe, moving  and healthy.

 

"The monitoring wall provides the technology and framework for effective public space surveillance which is an integral element to provide first class images which can be used to help bring offenders to justice."

 

UVS Managing Director Steve Murphy, adds:

"The control centre was hailed as world class when it opened and obviously seamless 24/7 operation is of paramount importance.

 

"The project was won after very detailed technical and commercial evaluation by the end client and their consultants (IBI) including detailed demonstration of the required system functionality.

 

"All video wall control is fully integrated to the Synectics Synergy VMS platform. UVS have worked closely with Synectics during the past 12 years, which ensured the seamless integration."
