Helping Arlington (Texas) Manage Final Four Traffic

An Activu-powered video wall is featured in the video that accompanies “Arlington Manages Final Four Traffic,” an article published yesterday on nbcdfw.com. There were about 80,000 attendees at Monday night’s NCAA Final Four game at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and the Activu-powered video wall helped the Arlington Police Department prepare for crowds and traffic congestion.

Installed in 2008, the City of Arlington Traffic Management Center oversees traffic throughout the city and particularly for major events. Activu designed and built a display environment including a 2×4 array of 47″ NEC LCD panels as a primary display. To the left and right of the primary display is an additional 2×2 array of 47″ panels. All 16 panels provide full Activu capabilities allowing the operators to view any combination of analog and IP cameras, TV tuners, DVD and third party traffic applications, mapping and tracking software on any of the displays.

There are about 125 cameras set up at intersections throughout the city which are displayed on the Activu-powered video wall. Activu enables personnel in the TMC to share information, resulting in a common operating picture that allows the city to make fast and accurate decisions.
