The Situation Room in CBP headquarters used by Alan Bersin, the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, is undergoing a total renovation project, which will include the installation of a new 5-foot by 15-foot “Video Wall,” which will use state-of-the-art Christie MicroTiles.
“The Video Wall is one portion of the total situation room renovation project,” explains CBP in a solicitation it released on August 24. “There is other work being performed by other contractors which may take place simultaneously.”
The manufacturer of the tiles that will comprise the new video wall will be Christie Digital Systems, USA, Inc., whose U.S. offices are located in Cypress, CA. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ushio, Inc., which is based in Japan.
“At Christie, we’ve spent the last 30 years perfecting video walls that are purpose-built for the demanding requirements of command and control environments,” says Christie on its Web site. “We know that every single pixel on a display provides information that can be vital to making the right decision at the right time. That’s why we engineered MicroTiles to deliver the highest resolution possible, with virtually invisible seams and image quality second-to-none.”
“Leveraging the strengths of both DLP projection and Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, Christie MicroTiles offer substantially brighter images and a much wider color palette than conventional flat panel LCD and plasma displays,” the company adds.
CBP envisions the renovation contract as a 100 percent small business set-aside award. Prospective vendors will be able to visit the situation room in Suite 4.2B in the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC, on August 30. Proposals to CBP are due by September 2.
