Command and Control Center


Interpol, the world¹s largest international police organization, with 190 member countries, uses high-performance Avitecture AV systems in its Washington, DC headquarters for meetings with simultaneous translation and for training. The Command Center features a high-resolution, 3-high x 9-wide Christie MicroTile videowall. Five 60″ LCD monitors mounted on custom floor-to-ceiling pole brackets around the perimeter of this room enable viewing throughout the room. The system provides full digital matrix switching of 36 computer and HD video inputs to all displays as well as inter-room connectivity. A conference area within the Command Center has a SMART interactive overlay, used with a 60″ monitor, to allow annotation and interaction with the data.

Two rooms used for videoconferencing and meetings each have dual 60″ monitors along with easy to use, highly flexible digital and analog computer and video routing. These rooms can both send and receive video and audio signals from the Command Center.


A training room has a simultaneous translation audio system so that Interpol can use it for both executive meetings and for training sessions. Infrared delegate microphone stations provide secure voice reinforcement for all participants as well as up to four language translation channels. A dual-screen projection system with HD high-brightness projectors and three HD cameras allows high-quality viewing and recording of training sessions and meetings. AMX touchscreens and keypads provide full control of the AV systems in each room.
