Video solutions provider RGB Spectrum has installed its video wall processor for the command and control center at the Port of Valparaiso, the second busiest Chile port.

According to the company, an upsurge in cruise and freight activity made it imperative that the port significantly enhance real-time monitoring of operations, including loading and unloading ships and detection of drugs and explosives, to enhance the ability of personnel to identify potential issues and respond rapidly and effectively.

Extensive surveillance

The company says that the Chile port enlisted the technical AV services of Convergint for the port’s command and control center at its Terminal Pacífico Sur Valparaíso SA.

Convergint selected RGB Spectrum’s mission-critical video processor to power a massive video wall, comprising 33 HD displays forming a 130-square-foot display surface.

RGB Spectrum highlights that the video processor provides real-time acquisition of visual data sources, including computer feeds, an extensive array of surveillance video cameras throughout the Chile port facility, radio frequency (RFI) sensors on vessels and containers, VMS systems, access control systems, local and national news and weather broadcasts.

The processor supports an extensive range of baseband and IP signal types, including IP streams, DVI/HDMI and 3G/HD-SDI, consolidating and displaying them to provide personnel with enhanced situational awareness and a common operating picture for analysis and improved decision-making.

RGB Spectrum highlights that a single processor can power multiple video walls and other displays for the Chile port.

Unique capability

The RGB Spectrum processor also allows for the remote distribution and sharing of any of its visual/data sources, a mimic of the entire video wall or any region of interest via a LAN or WAN to anyone, anywhere on the network.

With the Zio Mobile App, the company says that users can view these streams remotely even on a mobile phone or tablet.

This unique capability provides remote stakeholders, including command personnel, first responders and other departments and agencies, immediate access to mission-critical information.

“Our video wall processors are a vital part of our decision support solution. It is a crucial enabling tool that enhances data visualization, situational awareness, a common operating picture and collaboration,” said Bob Marcus, CEO of RGB Spectrum.
