Fire and Rescue Control Room Relies on Matrox Mura MPX Capture and Display Video Wall Sources

Video walls integrated by Agelec at the Bouches-du-Rhône Fire and Rescue headquarters feature AGCWALL video wall processors with Matrox Mura MPX boards

Matrox® Graphics, Inc. today announced that France-based video wall system designer and professional AV integrator Agelec has successfully installed two video walls at the Bouches-du-Rhône Fire and Rescue Department (SDIS 13) headquarters, equipped with Agelec AGCWALL video wall processors with Matrox Mura MPX video wall capture and display boards inside.

SDIS 13 is responsible for monitoring ongoing fire and rescue interventions and overseeing operations for 62 fire stations serving most of the 5,087 km2 (1,964 sq mi) Bouches-du-Rhône territory. SDIS 13’s Emergency Response Center now relies on Matrox Mura MPX cards—installed within Agelec AGCWALL video wall processors—to capture and display real-time, high-quality video and data from numerous sources on a large 12-display wall and a smaller 4-display wall. Agelec completed the installation with AGCTOUCH control software providing an intuitive touch-screen interface adapted to meet the client’s needs.

“We appreciate the flexibility of having both inputs and outputs on a single Matrox Mura MPX board and the large number of formats that these boards can handle,” said Agelec CEO Jean-Michel Lanco. “Matrox Mura MPX boards perform really well and are easy to install, not to mention being totally compatible with our AGCTOUCH software—we have used these with great success in many multi-input, multi-output video wall projects.”

“Agelec’s video wall solution with Matrox Mura MPX inside helps us monitor a growing influx of real-time video and data, so we can make informed decisions more quickly during time-critical interventions,” said SDIS 13 commander Didier Margotto, head of the emergency response center. “We are very happy with the results”.
