September 2009
When the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Real-Time
Analysis and Critical Response (RACR) division needed a display
solution in its control center, it looked to Spectrum Video, Inc.
to design workstations and a video wall that would allow its
staff to work swiftly and efficiently, without worrying about the
dependability of its technology. The workstations allow RACR
staff to work in teams and enable collaboration, while area
monitors mounted from the ceiling helps with decision-making
in emergency situations. The ultra-narrow bezel video wall is
viewable from virtually anywhere within the brand new facility.
The RACR division of the
LAPD is a 24/7 fusion and
information processing
center where resources,
situation status of the city
and developing tactical
incidents are tracked. This
department also includes
daily detective support to
Los Angeles and complete
analysis on emerging crime

visual design, engineering, control system user interface and project
oversight, living up to its motto of "clarity without complexity."
The Challenge
Originally, the LAPD resided in the basement of City Hall.
Cramped and pressed for space, the City worked to build a brand
new facility for multiple stakeholders, including the Emergency
Management Department (EMD), LAPD RACR and the Los
Angeles Fire Department's Main Dispatch and Department
Operations Center. Primary design plans for RACR featured a
rear-projection system with mirrors and projection screen that
showed emergency situation status in an area where officers
developed a course of action. Staff members were not looking
forward to constantly replacing projector lamps, and realized
bringing in a new flat-panel system would provide real estate
behind the displays, which could be used for equipment racks full
of AV-related gear.
The City had previous experience acquiring AV design from
Spectrum with other projects, so the choice to hire their services for
the new installation was easy. Bringing in Spectrum as architect
of the Audio Visual systems in the new facility allowed the LAPD

Spectrum wanted to
dramatically improve the
RACR facility by creating
a seamless video wall that
would support a variety

the ability to alternate
each screen's content.
