The solution was to construct an Operations Centre to accommodate over 100 people inside a converted basketball court in the Maylands Police complex.
This centre facilitated the collaboration of staff from bodies such as WA police groups (General Duties, Traffic Operations, TRG, SWAT, Media Liaison etc.), the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Army, Westralian Airports Corporation, the City of Perth, WA Main Roads and the Perth Transit Authority as well as water, electricity, gas, FESA and ambulance representatives. The system installed incorporated a projected video wall 30 metres long and over 3 metres high, made up of 5 x 10,000 ANSI Lumen projectors with 1920×1200 resolution. These projectors were designed and warranted for 24/7 operation. Signal distribution from over 30 sources was distributed both to the main floor and throughout the building, to 18 displays including the main video wall, a smaller 5×2 LCD video wall, and several meeting rooms. This was accomplished with extraordinary flexibility to meet the operational requirements. A Crestron control system ensured instantaneous selection of the layouts required, from any of the three command desks.
