Airport security, operations and emergency personnel operate in tandem to ensure uninterrupted operations while protecting critical assets. Activu provides a platform where airports can aggregate and present visual information and video such as air control maps, weather data and security information, at any time, on any device (from a control room video wall and conference room displays to desktop monitors and mobile devices) to effectively manage operations. Activu designs, builds, installs and supports these systems.
Intelligent Decision Support and Collaborative Visualization Solutions for Mission Critical Operations
A pioneer in the development of IP-networked, software-based collaborative visualization systems, Activu designs, builds, installs and supports visualization and collaboration systems used in control room environments. Activu’s sole focus: enabling organizations to make timely, accurate and effective decisions in the most demanding applications, in the control room, in mobile applications, and throughout entire organization.
Distributed operations are common and the need to easily share information throughout the airport is paramount to effective communication and true situational awareness. Inherently multi-location, Activu’s software, the Activu Enterprise Software Suite (AESS), delivers critical information to video walls and displays throughout the airport or around the world.
TeamShare for Multi-location Sharing
When direct and personal collaboration is required, Activu offers TeamShare, its flexible and powerful collaboration tool allowing direct communication between members of a team: easily sharing nearly any information source with the ability to chat with team members and annotate directly over content.
Mobility Reaches beyond the Control Room
To support the mobile workforce, Activu provides a host of flexible and scalable solutions, giving mobile users the ability to capture live video or photo content and deliver it into an AESS-enabled organization, as well as view content securely delivered directly to their mobile device.
An Information Technology Solution to Control Rooms and Collaboration
Unlike proprietary AV solutions, Activu’s software runs on Microsoft’s operating system and is deployed on COTS hardware. Customers receive the most cost-effective, robust technology offering the highest level of price performance, product design innovation, quality and reliability. Future hardware upgrades are a simple matter of moving the software to the new hardware. Complete and secure integration of an Activu system into a standard corporate network environment ensures the system is only accessible to those who have appropriate permissions and all communications are highly encrypted.
