Wellington Transport Operations Centre

About them:

The Wellington Transport Operations Centre monitors and manages state highways and motorways from Mount Messenger in Taranaki, as far north as the Three Sisters on the Desert Road, east to East Cape, and south into Wellington City. The centre receives live feeds from 120 cameras transmitting images into the control room for operators to monitor traffic flows, manage roadway incidents and peak hour motorway flows as well as the latest weather conditions. 

What We Did:​

TenFour were engaged by the Wellington Transport Operations Centre to design a dedicated control room solution for the NZTA JTOC facility. 

Project Objectives:

Identifying a need to improve operational functionality and flexibility, key objectives of the design included the ability to switch between camera sources and information as well as designing a user-friendly system that could manage and distribute content easily and efficiently.

Final Results:

Having successfully implemented a similar solution for NZTA’s ATOC facility in Auckland, TenFour installed an impressive 9×3 video wall in the main control room using Christie Phoenix as the content management backbone. The Phoenix system enables users to access and control content displayed on the video wall, securely and reliably, via standard IP networking technology and provides operations staff a set of comprehensive tools to enlarge particular items of interest in emergency situations, minimise images, listen, and interact with any source or information in front of them.

System start-up and control is managed by the shift operator using 15” Crestron touch screen. From here, they can make quick selections to adjust room lighting, select audio sources, change and mute volume levels, send content to a remote room or site, as well as recall preset display layouts. Crestron AirMedia facilitates collaboration and workflow with other users in the room who can share content from their desktop to the video wall with ease.

Overflow is managed in BAU and Crisis situations with the system allowing for sharing back and forth between the main control room and adjacent breakout room and remote sites. The breakout room features a smaller 4×2 video wall and can be operated as a stand-alone space, with the same functionality and user interface as the main control room.

Installed video wall hardware consists of 55” Samsung Full HD 1080P commercial grade LCD screens, Phoenix IN/OUT Nodes, Crestron Processor control and audio via two wall mounted speakers.

TenFour’s understanding of the importance of NZTA’s time critical applications, was key to the success of this installation.
