The City of Chesapeake’s new EOC is a two-story, 3,600-square-foot room built to accommodate up to 100 people. At the front of the room, a bright, 6×3 CineView LCD video wall displays an interactive dashboard of live camera feeds, weather data, news programs, and real-time tracking tools. The EOC also contains seven 55” auxiliary displays mounted throughout the room. To meet the EOC’s need for 24/7 reliability, each display was designed with redundant power supplies.
To route signals to the EOC’s video wall and auxiliary screens, CineMassive Installed an Alpha FX Core controller. The Core processor accepts data in virtually any format, allowing end users to display multiple content sources simultaneously and dynamically arrange information.
During an EOC activation, three emergency management supervisors sit directly in front of the video wall, controlling the content displayed on the screens behind them. Sitting across from management are 50-75 employees monitoring information on either the video wall or personal observation devices (PODs) from 14 separate team workstations. These teams use CineNet, CineMassive’s user-friendly software, to rapidly gather intelligence, share critical insights, and coordinate strategic responses to everything from road closures to evacuation orders.
