EYEVIS LOGO
RTS have recently installed a videowall for a public sector client in central London using the EYEVIS product range of videowall controllers and processors over HDBaseT

RTS were engaged by an existing public sector client to assist with the design and installation of a new videowall as part of an existing building upgrade to modernise a control room within the customer building.

 

Video Wall Example

 

RTS distributed multiple HD CCTV images, IPTV and local video using a dedicated EYEVIS Netpix videowall Processor. The EYEVIS Netpix allows for exceptional customisation of video display arrangements when using the custom API in conjunction with an AMX Control processor. Video from the EYEVIS Netpix was distributed to a 3×2, ultra-narrow bezel display array, using Extron HDBaseT extenders.

The audio from IPTV and local sources was processed via an Extron audio DSP outputting program sound using K-ARRAY integration speakers, either side of the video wall.

RTS worked alongside other trades to complete the project within the allocated timescales and to budget. The finished result was ” a real show stopper” and the client training was minimised as the system was intuitive enough with the system integrating with a user friendly AMX touch-panel design.

London’s Metropolitan Police officers are to trial the use of body-worn video cameras on their uniforms as part of a plan to boost both transparency and accelerate convictions and are designed to capture crime scene evidence.

The pilot scheme will see 500 body-worn video cameras distributed to police officers across 10 London boroughs. Firearm officers will also use them for training.

Camden is the first to start using the cameras, with further trials in Barnet, Bexley, Bromley, Brent, Croydon, Ealing, Havering, Hillingdon and Lewisham.

Video footage will be stored on file for a month unless it is needed as evidence in a case.

Trials in the use of law enforcement body-worn video cameras have shown that people are more likely to plead guilty, knowing that officers have captured the evidence on video, resulting in less costly legal trials and a more efficient criminal justice system.

If successful, it will be rolled out across Britain’s biggest police force.

RTS were approached by staff at Southwark Coroner’s office to provide, install and operate all audio visual and video conferencing solutions for the Jean Charles de Menezes inquest. Including all special measures (witness anonymity) for statements via video conferencing link.

RTS were responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of the audiovisual and  information technology video and data infrastructure within the purpose built temporary court room and the integration onto the local networking infrastructure at the Surrey Oval in central London.

Installation and operation of a simultaneous interpretation infra-red system allowing the de Menezes family to hear the proceedings in their native language.

PTZ ceiling mounted cameras were installed into the courtroom allowing live video and audio to be streamed to the media overspill annexe located separately on the far side of the Surrey Oval over an IPTV video link.

Facial pixelation and blocking techniques were integrated into the video system, masking the identity of the witnesses from the public and press areas.

The inquest lasted approximately 14 weeks.

On completion of the Inquest, the Coroner’s staff said: “RTS Communications provided a professional service from start to finish, offering pro-active solutions to issues which were outside their original remit. Staff were always on hand and without their support, sometimes providing items at really short notice, the inquest would not have progressed as smoothly as it did.”

The British Council called RTS to update their existing in-house AV equipment and required a flexible automated solution requiring minimal interaction by their staff.

RTS designed and installed a solution which enabled British Council personnel to use the rooms in one of three different configurations with ease incorporating video projection and conferencing whilst utilising existing cabling infrastructure.

Our engineers provided training and support and offer ongoing maintenance support when required.
