Upgrading a Command and Control Room in a New Police Station

Upgrading a command and control room in a new police station
Title : Upgrading a Command and Control Room in a New Police Station
Company : Northern European Police District

The Challenge

As part of the move to a new building, a police department based in the north of Europe planned to overhaul their command and control room equipment. Their existing control room used legacy analog technology and was a mix of KVM point-to-point extensions (VGA-PS2 and VGA-USB), and small desktop KVM switches to give single-user access to one or two remote systems.

The Solution

The police department specified a need for fast switching times, redundancy and hot swappability to avoid potential downtime. Black Box suggested the implementation of a DKM FX Matrix Switching System. Because of its scalability and flexibility, DKM FX switches are a great solution for command and control rooms, providing multiple users with simultaneous access, and the ability to work over a mix of structured cabling (copper and fiber).

The DKM FX solution is configured with two video walls, one 4-by-2 and one 2-by-2 setup, connecting rooms with five desks and multiple users throughout 24/7 shifts.

A Black Box MediaCento Control System integrates with the DKM FX in order to bring touchscreen compatibility for switching and control of the video walls. The larger video wall has a title function where an image can be sent to a 2-by-2 area. Operators have a- mix of extension systems on their desks, enabling some to transmit to the video walls while others are simply connected to remote servers.

DKM Matrix Switching Application

US_DKM_Application-Diagram_Descriptions

Basic matrix switching setup, connecting multiple user stations and source computers through a DKM matrix switch and DKM extenders.

Connecting DKM with Boxilla and Emerald

US_KVM_DKM-Emerald-SETUP

Integrating DKM with Boxilla and Emerald to gain access to an IP-based KVM system and virtual machines.

DKM FX
The perfect high-performance, modular enterprise routing system for complete in-band signal distribution of high-definition video, audio, and peripherals over CATx or single-mode fiber supporting up to 576 I/O ports in a single frame. Designed with performance and flexibility in mind, the DKM FX offers tremendous scalability.
DKM Compact
Specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM deployments. Get the same instantaneous, reliable access to real-time digital HD video, plus a whole host of peripherals in a 1U or 2U frame for smaller installations. DKM FXC can be used with all DKM FX extender modules creating a wide range of high performance features and connections.
DKM Extenders
Re-locate computers and access them at longer distances than standard interconnect cables allow. Compact extenders are small and offer a space-saving footprint in standard fixed configurations. Modular extenders enable you to build a system to fit your specific need or application. Modular enclosure frames are available in 2-, 4-, 6-, and 21-slot units. The extenders can be used in standalone, point-to-point applications, or as part of your DKM system.
DKM_Compact_II
Specifically designed for smaller to mid-sized KVM deployments up to 160 endpoints, these compact switches come in sizes of 1, 2, and 4 RU. They support modern applications with a mix of HD and 4K video, USB, audio, and serial extension and switching in a very economical way.

Freedom

Freedom II KM Switches
