The Operations Team at GDOT, anticipating the North Corridor/I-75 opening, requested the expertise of Unified Technology Systems to solve the challenge of keeping the eyes of the Traffic Operations Center on all those roads. The Center needed maximum coverage, reliable video displays, and superb viewing capacity for monitoring interstate, state and rural roads throughout the state.
GDOT is not a typical customer for most AV and technology support firms. For Unified Technology Systems, though, government agencies and their unique demands are regular customers. GDOT knew that Unified had experience where it counted.
The video wall Unified installed was designed to handle long duty cycles. Imagine GDOT’s eyes on the road going dark even for a short time. That is an unacceptable risk to the public’s safety and the smooth operating efficiency of Georgia’s roads. This new video wall will provide years of faithful, flawless service.

The Georgia Department of Transporation (GDOT) oversees more than 6,992 lane-miles of interstate highways, nearly 18,000 miles of state highways, and over 87,193 miles of rural roads, day and night, 365 days a year. Upgrades to their video wall had to be designed to minimize interruption.
Unified Technology Systems went big and bold: 305 feet of display area in a video wall nearly 20 feet wide and 15.5 feet tall.
GDOT knew Unified has experience where it counts:
Experience in installing Video walls
Experience in providing unparalleled support and service for all installations
A long history of being an authorized, fully compliant State-of-Georgia AV contract vendor
Hardware alone would not support GDOT’s mission. Unified needed to find a fast, efficient way to remove the existing components and install the Planar LED Video Wall, connect it, test it, commission it, and train GDOT personnel in its use.
GDOT needed every part of the solution to be up and running quickly and reliably. Unified put the Traffic Operations Center in the fast lane and got the job done.
Unified Technology Systems not only upgraded the video wall with the new super-sharp Planar system, it restored the cosmetic appearance of the wall after installation. As with all Unified installations, GDOT receives superior service and maintenance as part of the total package.
Unified Technology Systems brings a powerful combination of tech services to the market by both enabling a well-planned and efficient IT infrastructure and enabling greater engagement with leaders and learners by providing state-of-the-art integrated technology solutions.
