As a result,, multiple operators working on an incident can quickly have visual information from numerous sources to form a common operational image. This single point of view can be moved to a video wall or any screen on the network, in order to provide a global vision to promote greater understanding and facilitate collaboration between the various agencies in the event of a large-scale emergency.

With the interface that is established between Barco CMS and Genetec Omnicast, public bodies can deliver IP video streams to the EOC in a secure and controlled manner, allowing access only to allowed sources, as well as the central record of each activity to ensure the security of information.

By gaining greater access and control of any type of IP video stream, operators can accumulate a lot of crucial information and organize it efficiently, improving awareness of the situation until the last minute to ensure rapid action.

As Francis Lachance points out, Genetec product manager, "we have been partnering for many years to achieve the best security and surveillance tools for the market. Our Omnicast video management system (Vms) integrates very well with Barco's N TransForm platform, which allows us to demonstrate our ability to integrate".
