CLEVELAND POLICE MOBILISE AMIGAs IN TOUCH-SCREEN PUBLIC ACCESS SYSTEM

By CBR Staff Writer

Cleveland Constabulary in the North of England is using touch-screen kiosks to keep in contact with police officers and the public. It has spent ú150,000 on 30 kiosks, using 26 of them to relay messages to its 1,500 employees. The other four will be in public locations to raise awareness and understanding of police activities. The system is based on Scala InfoChannel. Information is entered into the network by the TV and Video Unit at police headquarters in Middlesbrough and is sent to the screens using British Telecommunications Plc ISDN links. The system runs on an Amiga 4000 home computer fitted with an MPEG video board.
