Emergency Operation Centers deliver a media-rich environment to emergency response staff, allowing them immediate access to resources they need to make critical decisions. Resources include local and national news and weather channels, graphics from local PC apps and the Internet, fiber and IPTV feeds from traffic, helicopter, security, and “classified” video sources, and radio stations.
A growing number of sites are using RF as a common carrier for information. A single coax cable can present over a hundred channels of video simultaneously, and all an operator needs to tune in is a standard flat-panel TV set. HDTV modulators ingest video from the wide array of sources.
RF-base EOC design is extremely scalable, suitable for small and large scale installations, and easily adaptable for adding new channels and viewing locations.
