At one time, Philadelphia was the only city among the 10 largest municipalities in the United States without a Traffic Operations Center (TOC). Now, a new Barco video wall solution, complete with Control Room Management (CMS) software and integrated with a Genetec VMS, helps the City better manage traffic flows and handle problems to improve safety, efficiency and innovative services.
The video wall displays feeds from more than 5,000 cameras in a single, large common operational picture. The system ties into Philadelphia’s federated Genetec VMS, which allows the TOC to send, receive and display critical information from the Streets Department, Police Department, SEPTA, the University of Pennsylvania and the Delaware Valley Intelligence Center (DVIC).
Barco and AV integrator Vistacom developed a 5x2 video wall comprising 10 OLF-521 front-access, rear projected LED displays, and powered by Barco’s Control Room Management (CMS) software with TransForm N. CMS software configures how and where content is displayed. Operators can create perspectives (user-defined layouts) to view data/images/video in the most optimal way.
