Posted 2/12/2010

 

Applied Electronics Limited of Vancouver has completed a significant installation featuring Christie visual display solutions for the City of Vancouver’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in the E-Comm building.  

The Vancouver EOC coordinates emergency response teams from Vancouver’s police and RCMP, fire and rescue, traffic management, city engineering services, health authority and more.  Staffed by personnel from city departments and trained volunteers, it supports all response activities in the field and provides overall direction to responders in emergency situations.  The 24/7 hub is critical to the safety of visitors, athletes, spectators and residents of Vancouver.

Powered by Christie HD405 single-chip DLP® high definition projectors and the Christie TVC-1210 display wall controller, the EOC features a 26-foot wide screen with a pixel resolution of 3840 x 1080.  It is used for emergency mapping, linking to emergency response centres, television coverage and news feeds.
