Emergency Response Center in Taiwan Transport Hub

What is ERC (Emergency Response Center)?

ERC, also known as Emergency Response Center, is a mandatory facility for commercial establishments per Taiwan's public safety regulation. It contains a variety of building management systems, including broadcast, fire alarm, AC, lighting, CCTV, gas, earthquake detection systems, and so on. Each is coordinated and controlled by security staff to take necessary actions in response to unexpected activities in the building.

Emergency Response Center

Overview

The transport hub is a 30 story building and approximately 16529 ㎡, possessing 28 elevators, 32 escalators, 26 staircases, 690 CCTV cameras, and over 110K visitors per day. Since three organizations share the ownership of the transport hub and have respective CCTV systems, it's hard for them to use virtual integration due to information sensitivity. To secure the visitors and the property more carefully, the organizations built a emergency response center and assigned respective agents to monitor the whole building.

Challenge

The CCTV system includes several HDMI monitors and a 3 x 3 TV wall at the ERC, and has 10 PCs at the data center, each location is 500M apart. The security team used extenders to send signals from data center and used a KVM switch to switch different CCTV videos.

However, the approach was not user-friendly. Since only one monitoring spot can switch videos, the working efficiency got compromised for the security team.
