Bristol City Council
The Bristol operations centre, which has been operating since February 2017, 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.
These 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.
It also installed a conference/incident video wall made up of four displays, with access to the same data, and a smaller police incident monitoring video wall.
The three video walls are each made up of 55-inch 24/7 grade LCD displays with narrow bezels and are part of a multi-purpose centre which brings together some of the city’s critical support services and acts as a control centre in the event of a major emergency.
As well as the video walls UVS also installed 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.
UVS’s ability to provide high quality displays which have operated problem-free was key to winning the work and the video wall system has now hit the 25,000 hours of operation milestone.
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.
