Mexico City video wall powered by Christie Projectors

Christie Digital Systems : 14 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Tiling Projection System from Christie Digital Systems providing improved intelligence gathering capabilities for Mexico City's Police Force
Christie high performance rear tiling projection systems are the high-tech "face" of Mexico's new, state-of-the-art security and surveillance facility. A total of 80 Christie DLV1400-DX 3-Chip DLP projectors are powering the control room video walls of the massive Federal Police Intelligence Centre of the Public Security Secretariat, the sophisticated "eyes and ears" of Mexico's most ambitious effort to centralize intelligence gathering for the government. An ultra-modern showcase that reflects the government's commitment to national security, the centre more than quadruples the country's intelligence capabilities. It is the largest government security installation in the world utilising high-level performance display equipment.

With the control room serving as the focal point for intelligence gathering, Christie systems will help Mexico's Federal Police keep an eye on the country's vital infrastructure. The 80 projection modules are configured on 4 video walls, each approximately 65 feet (20 m) wide by 10 feet (3 m) high; the middle room contains a glassed-in boardroom with glass that can be dimmed for top-level security briefings. Located in a classified, multi-storied bunker in Mexico City, the center will help the Federal Police connect with multinational intelligence forces to monitor events that can impact national security. It will be a key part of the institutional framework and security infrastructure in the country, monitoring activities in four areas: strategic installations, national alerts, public security and anti-crime operations.

The centre's opening day celebrations were attended by the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón. Addressing an audience of Federal Police authorities and officers, President Calderón praised the facility for the strategic and technological value it offers the country. He called the centre a highly advanced electronic brain "that will enable us to keep a step ahead of crime." He noted it will also allow them to make the best possible use of Platform Mexico, the International Interconnection Network of municipalities, states, departments, and the Federal Government itself, which will give the authorities timely information to combat crime.

Christie was selected by Mexico's leading integrator, Grupo Covix, a long-standing partner with more than a quarter century of experience in the design, installation and maintenance of some of the industry's most sophisticated multimedia environments. Grupo Covix is a leader in surveillance and security installations that include control rooms, business applications, 3D facilities, and other high-end multimedia solutions. According to Juan Carlos Alcázar, sales director at Grupo Covix, the company's valuable relationship with Christie is based on a solid trust in Christie's superior control room solutions.

The facility is operated by Secretaria de Seguridad Pública (SSP), an arm of the Mexican government for which Christie has previously provided control room solutions. With national security a top priority in Mexico, SSP is committed to working with companies like Mexico's Grupo Covix and Christie, which bring proven track records of success in control room installations for governments of all sizes, with products that meet their highest standards for quality and reliability.


Zoran Veselic, vice president of Christie's Visual Environments division, noted that Christie control room products are found in government facilities around the world. "When it involves matters of the highest national security, failure is not an option. Every installation must meet the strictest standards of 24/7 operation," he said. "Christie products are purpose built for display wall environments under the most challenging conditions. We are pleased to be providing Mexico with cutting-edge products that contribute to the security and safety of the country."
