Emergency Operations Centers (EOC)

Safe, Secure and Reliable AV Distribution and Technology Management

Ensuring that crises are managed effectively, efficiently and safely is the top priority of Emergency Operations Centers (EOC). Every day, EOCs around the world rely on HARMAN technologies to ensure redundant, fail-safe uptime of crucial systems, onsite AV distribution with pixel perfect clarity, and the ability to initiate conferences down the hall or across the world, in an instant.

Accuracy, dependability and clarity in EOC applications is crucial

EOCs are used for training, certification of emergency personnel, and other associated first-responders, until there is an emergency. And whether that emergency is an active shooter, a hurricane, tornado, flood, or some other natural or man-made event that endangers the citizenry, public officials and tactical commanders require timely and accurate data to monitor the situation and make tactical decisions, until the event has been resolved. Increasingly, the required data takes the form of live video and audio feeds, which must be managed and displayed in the EOC based upon the preferences of the commanding officers in charge.
