City of Alexandria Emergency Operations Center

Christie Entero LED video wall display cubes enhance a new 911 center

The citizens of Alexandria, Virginia can feel a little safer today, thanks to an updated Emergency Operations Center featuring Christie® digital control room equipment. The state-of-the art center, a cornerstone of the city’s emergency response system, debuted its new space and technology in July 2011.

With an existing facility that was very small and had outdated technology, the planning began for a new communications center that would have a floor plan that worked for the employees, audio capabilities, a new video wall and upgraded computer equipment. The facility was a long time coming, with city officials first making contact with Christie at a tradeshow in 2008. After seeing the many control room solutions available from the industry-leading manufacturer, the city contracted integration experts, The Control Room Group/AVI-SPL, to find the perfect fit for the application.

“Christie solved all of their concerns. The wall is guaranteed to have a long life. It offers multiple screen selections at the push of a button. There’s no fading and no bulb replacement. They are very happy with the final product.”
