Atlona Case Study

Alameda County Sheriff's Office
Emergency Operations Center

Upgrading Mission-Critical A/V Technology to Enhance
Crisis Management and Response Capabilities

This installation represented a large step forward in technology for the EOC


The Alameda County Sheriff's Department
relentlessly pursues ways of using new technologies to improve the efficiency of the Agency and better serve their community, as part of their goal to be the Best Sheriff's Office in the Nation. The ACSO Emergency Operations Center, located in Dublin California, is no exception. Sheriff Gregory J. Ahern sought to create a state of the art digital nerve center with which various agencies and utilities could come together to efficiently manage emergencies in a
metro area that encompasses more than
seven and a half million residents. While
grand in concept, the original EOC suffered from several weaknesses inherent with the technology available during its creation in 1995. A lack of digital switching, coupled with the large footprint required by displays and projectors of the day limited the ability to provide access to critical information from agencies and utilities involved in Bay Area crisis management. While a simple upgrade to LCD screens connected to a
24 Atlona AT-HD4-SI40SR Extender
sets were used to connect all of the
few computers might serve as adequate for some situations Sheriff Ahern envisioned something much more ambitious. He envisioned a system that was capable of directing resources from the southern border of Oregon to Monterey County on the central coast of California during a crisis. This system would receive content from multiple sources, whether local or remote, and allow for easy dissemination to all parties involved in managing whatever
emergency situations might arise. In this endeavor he succeeded beyond anyone's expectations. He was able to coordinate
this awesome feat of integration with the help of several solutions providers, including Atlona.


With the rise of digital technology, complex integration of multiple sources of information, have gone from dream to

reality. A few years ago the vision of Sheriff
Ahern would have been very difficult to reach. Evolving from a system that included
computers that were statically linked to 3
rear LCD projectors, coupled with a few
displays, to a completely routable high
definition video wall was a monumental
undertaking. When speaking to Sheriffs
Technician Michael Barnes, coordinator of
the project, one began to see the scope of
this undertaking.
"This building is designed to withstand
a magnitude 8.4 earthquake, has food
and water enough to last several weeks,
and enough power to run continuously
for a month" said Barnes. "The greatest
challenge was with the video integration."
The objective was to route over a dozen
thin client computers, television news feeds, and remote video to a centralized wall while being able to control what content
The Sheriffs office now has the
ability to display multiple sources
at the same time allowing for much
greater efficiency
is displayed on which display. In addition
the ACSO's needs evolved to being able to route video from eight different remote locations, including footage from unmanned aerial systems being considered by the law enforcement agency. After many months of system design and proposals Harris Electric and Spinatar were chosen to implement this incredible system.


Ultimately twenty four, forty-six inch displays were used to create the video wall. This allowed a variety of information to be displayed on the periphery of the video wall while two four display blocks were reserved for presentations or additional remote feeds in the center of the wall. A touch pad control system in the front of the EOC has been set up with shortcuts which allow for this default configuration, or the ability to focus in on specific thin clients

or video feeds. Driving the video to each of these display panels are twenty four Atlona AT-HD4-SI40SR HDMI Extender Sets. Well known for their reliability and ability to pass EDID and HDCP signals over 100 feet with just one category cable, the SI40 was the right choice for the job. The senders reside in the server room of the EOC next to the matrix switcher and control system. The small footprint of these units ensures that precious rack space was not wasted in this complex installation. The receivers were mounted behind each of the twenty four displays, several dozen feet away. Now the Alameda County Sheriff's office had a fully functioning Emergency Operations Center that will enhance their ability to respond to any and all situations that might arise in a massive swath of California. Atlona was extremely pleased to be included in this exceptional, and mission critical project.
The Atlona SI40SR provides great
range with a minimal footprint


The Alameda County Sheriff's Office,
under the direction of Sheriff Ahern, has
accomplished a feat that is the envy of
law enforcement agencies everywhere.
Their combination of bold vision, extensive
planning, and integration of Atlona solutions have ensured that the residents of Alameda County can rest easy knowing that in a crisis their safety and recovery is taken care of by these dedicated law enforcement professionals. This installation demonstrates that Atlona products and technologies are more than ready to meet the needs of mission critical AV installations.

AT-HDRX and AT-HDTX Basic Features
  The receiver is getting hot, is this ok?
  It is normal for the receiver to be fairly warm during normal operation.

  I am only getting the menu of my Scientific Atlanta/Time Warner/Comcast/Cisco cable boxes (Model #s: 4000, 4250HD, 4642, 4742, 8300HD, 8600, 8642, RNG-110, RNG-150, RNG-200, CHS, X1), but not the video feed, and receiving the error message “HDCP error switch to Component”. How can I fix this?
  This is due to the fact that your set top box is running off of older HDMI standards we would need to have a source to be HDMI 1.3 or above standards to properly push HDBaseT signals. We have had good success of putting an AT-HDSync in line between the source and the extenders to solve this issue.

  Does this unit support ARC?
  At this time none of our extenders support ARC.

  Should I use shielded cables or shielded conduit?
  Shielding in any form is always recommended. If you use shielded category cable be sure to use metal RJ45 connectors and be sure to properly terminate the cable to 568B.

  Do you use all pins of the category cable?
  As HDBaseT is a bi-directional, bit-in/bit-out, transmitting method and all pins in the cat cable are required.

  What is the energy saving mode on this unit?
  When no signal is passing the device goes to stand-by mode, which on average consume 2.5W vs. 11W.
