U.S. Army's Armament, Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC), located at the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, wanted a robust control system - so the Army turned to Crestron. ARDEC includes a massive Command and Control Center and the new 7,000 square foot Homeland Defense Testbed Emergency Operation Center (EOC). The facility has 87 zones of lighting and 16 zones of AV, and RGB distribution systems over CAT5. The distribution systems include 400 LAN drops, QuickMedia® distribution, preview of all NTSC sources and 38 computers. Eighteen touchpanels and 17 keypads control the facility, and Crestron XPanel and RoomView® multi-user software provide global room scheduling, monitoring, controlling, and reporting of all resources and systems.
