headwall

Headwall is a software company that allows for a digital twin of a command center to be instantiated in an extended reality headset. Headwall places secure video feeds, 3D data visualization, and real world hardware control into an immersive environment. In situations that demand rapid decision making, Headwall enables operators not physically in the command center to benefit from the same level of situational awareness afforded to operators with access to a large format video wall and 3D tools.

The system works identically to your existing command center with one exception. Users can access and manipulate data anywhere in the world via a head-mounted AR or VR display without being in a physical command center.

OVERVIEW

Overview

Video outputs from your existing command center AV infrastructure are connected to the Headwall system. Video is then converted to standard IP streams and decoded in a VR environment as full motion video streams.

Headwall passes through full control of source routing, video wall layouts, display positioning, KVM routing, camera PTZ control, and 3D visualization capabilities to the virtualized environment. Content is delivered over the WAN in a secure encrypted stream.

In addition to video wall visualization and control Headwall also allows for visualization of your facility or area of interest with a lidar scan or GIS map. These 3D tools are integrated with IoT devices, GPS data or other sensors to provide a real-time digital twin of your facility operation.

THE PROCESS

the process

Headwall engineers have been building physical command centers for decades. This work includes 24/7 mission critical watch floors for the US Military, Financial Industry and Civilian Emergency Response communities.

Integrating Headwall into existing operations begins with a consultation with our solutions engineering team to gather requirements and analyze existing infrastructure. The Headwall team then produces a design encompassing all technical requirements and physical hardware and develops a program of requirements for the full functionality of Headwall. The Headwall team of project managers guides the deployment and 24/7 support ensures the highest level of reliability for mission critical applications.

new command centers

The team behind Headwall can interface with your design team to expand your systems capabilities to extend to VR/AR functionality. There is no better time to implement Headwall than when in the design development phase of a new command center.

Configurations

Headwall can work either as an exact virtual copy of your existing real world command center or as an independently configurable workspace blending spatial information such as lidar scans or GIS mapping with real-time sensor data and live video feeds.

THE API

Headwall features a comprehensive API that integrates seamlessly with your existing control system. Nearly any feature you have in the real world can be duplicated in Headwall. The Headwall API is open and configurable for maximum flexibility.
