Command & Control

Better Information, Better Solutions

When monitoring oil wells, manufacturing processes, or data traffic — a central Command & Control center helps organizations monitor, detect, and quickly respond to changing conditions or events.

Optimized Control for Critical Operations

In command and control centers, seamless integration and real-time data access are vital. Our KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) systems and advanced workstations ensure efficient monitoring and management of crucial operations.

KVM Systems

Our KVM solutions provide secure and reliable access to multiple systems from a single workstation, enabling operators to switch between different sources effortlessly. Designed for high-availability environments, our KVM systems support 24/7 operation, ensuring continuous access to critical data.

Advanced Workstations

Tailored to the specific needs of control rooms, our workstations offer high-performance computing power, ergonomic design, and intuitive interfaces. Whether it’s for emergency response, utilities management, or industrial control, our workstations enhance operator efficiency and reduce response times.

Integrated Solutions

We design and implement fully integrated control room solutions that include video walls, video processors, and emergency communication systems. Our expert team ensures that all components work together seamlessly to provide a cohesive and effective command and control environment.

Video Walls

At the center of a command-and- control space is a large video wall. Ford AV provides the expertise necessary to design the right video wall platform to fit your workflow and budget, whether it’s direct-view LED, an array of panel displays, or video projection.

Video Projection

Sometimes, video projection is the preferred video solution because of budget, size, or other construction considerations. With new off-axis screen material and ultra-bright and high-resolution projectors, Ford can help navigate various options to develop brightness and resolution design objectives.

Video Processors

Designed for 24/7 reliability and the highest level of security, our products allow multiple operators, local or remote, to share control of system resources and view critical data in real-time. Our solutions are highly secure, cost-effective, and easy to implement, which is why they are chosen for utility providers, wastewater treatment plants, and power generation and distribution companies worldwide.

Emergency Communications

An Emergency Communication System (ECS) ensures rapid communication with your staff and visitors using visual paging, text, phone, email, and fire alarms from one centralized control point. With the push of a button, an ECS can immediately alert all areas of your facility or campus to a life-threatening incident and guide people to safety.

Electronic Furniture

Furniture design creates workspaces that become an extension of the user, all accomplished with intelligent ergonomics. Smart furniture allows you to think clearly, improving operations efficiency.
