Lee County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which is the official county warning point for natural or man-made hazards such as hurricanes, has deployed an Lectrosonics Aspen SPN1624 audio processor as part of a revamp to its mision critical AV setup.
The EOC receives emergency information through the Emergency Dispatch Center (E-911) and reports serious emergencies to the State Watch Office located at the State EOC in Tallahassee, Florida, US, who then coordinates State and/or Federal involvement or assistance within the County. Lee County’s EOC is a state-of-the-art facility that makes extensive use of audiovisual equipment—and to ensure trouble free audio, the facility now utilises Aspen audio processing technology from Rio Rancho, NM-based Lectrosonics.
Tampa, Florida-based systems integrator Encore Broadcast Solutions was responsible for working with the Lee County Emergency Management design team to develop a cost effective solution that met the requirements of the EOC. Recognising the importance of an audio infrastructure capable of handling the EOC’s operations without requiring an on-site attendant, the Encore team deployed a Lectrosonics Aspen SPN1624 16 input / 24 output digital audio processor interfaced with an AMX NI-4100 NetLinx Integrated Controller through a LAN/Ethernet connection.
“The Lee County EOC is a mission critical operation, so we required equipment that is designed to operate in this type of environment. The Aspen processor delivered the goods,” commented Douglas Taylor, sales manager at Encore Broadcast Solutions.
