SCORE Jail
Video Arraignment Suites, Mobile Video Conference Station,
Large Training Room and Conference Room

SCOPE: With many correctional facilities around the country closing or operating on shoestring budgets, several Washington cities, including Auburn, Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, SeaTac, Renton and Tukwila have found a cost-effective solution in the form of a shared regional jail. Avidex was tasked with providing audio visual design, equipment and integration for the high-tech facility which included a large training room, a conference room, five video arraignment suites and a mobile video conference station.

Avidex worked closely with the SCORE Team to design and integrated five video arraignment suites utilizing Polycom's HDX video teleconference technology. The use of video arraignment systems allows the courts to conduct the requisite arraignment process without the need to transport the person back to the arresting municipality. The transportation of offenders requires time, puts additional demands on the public safety organizations to provide for the safety of the public, court personnel and for the security of the offender population. These systems were critical for SCORE to effectively serve multiple municipalities.

For the 50 person training room as well as the main conference room, Avidex designed and integrated state-of-the-art technology utilizing Christie projection systems along with audio systems from Soundtube and Shure, all controlled through intuitive touch panels from Crestron. The main challenge for these spaces was SCORE's request to integrate all of the headend equipment in a secure area almost 300 feet away from the rooms. This required that all of the signals including source input switching, control system processing and audio processing, needed to be routed via CAT5e cables to, and from, each room
