Synergy Media Group realizes that government AV systems have different requirements than AV systems in other industries. Since government audiovisual systems are often used in situation training, video arraignment, operation centers, courtrooms, and times of emergency it is imperative that the system works at all times, every time. Our government systems are designed with redundancy, ease-of-use, and the ability to be up-and-running in a moment’s notice as the most important features. Below are a few common audiovisual solutions for the government:
Government AudioVisual Courtroom
An audiovisual courtroom is becoming more and more common these days. These high-tech courtrooms usually have an ceiling mounted projector and an electric screen. Through the projector, lawyers can display evidence on a large screen to provide a clear image for the judge, jury, and audience to see. Through the projector, courts can display laptop images, videos, or actual tangible evidence using a visual presenter. This visual presenter allows any item to be displayed through the projector (i.e. document, glove, weapon, etc…). Additionally, it is common to install small lcd screens in the jurors’ booths so that each juror has a close-up view of the items displayed through the projector. Microphones are often installed in multiple locations throughout the courtroom. In moot courtroom installations (in Universities or training courtrooms) it is common to add a recording system to critique lawyers and students. As with most high-end solutions, a Crestron touchpanel is installed to create a user-friendly system that anyone can use.
Government Network Operations Center
A Network Operations Center always entails the installation of a high-end audiovisual system. A common NOC includes numerous rear-projection screens in the front of the NOC. These screens can monitor and display any number of sources chosen by the entity. Often times a single screen can show more than one image if the user chooses to electronically divide the screen and allow it to display two, four, or six different sources simultaneously. Around the room it is common to have additional smaller displays so individuals can punch up a specific display that he/she needs to view. This system is controlled often controlled by multiple Crestron touchpanels.
Government Emergency Operations Center
An Emergency Operations Center’s audiovisual system is used in times when communication is most crucial. The ability to operate the AV system at a moments notice is extremely important. An EOC often consists of multiple projectors and screens, numerous plasmas and lcd displays, the ability to switch any source (laptop, visual presenter, dvd, vcr, satellite, camera, etc…) to any display (projector, plasma, lcd, etc), microphones, speakers, videoconferencing, audioconferencing, recording systems, video distribution systems, audio distribution systems, etc…. Emergency Operation Center’s audiovisual systems need to be prepared for the worst disasters and these rooms must have the ability to operate all technologies. Often times, EOC’s must have the ability to videoconference to multiple EOC’s, disease centers, FBI officials, etc… in an instant. The AV system must be SO easy to operate that any not familiar with the room can operate it without any learning curve issues. These rooms are extremely complex and must be designed and installed by professionals, like Synergy Media Group.
