Birmingham, AL – June 29, 2021 – Black Creek has been awarded a contract to upgrade the existing Black Creek Super Display® Touchscreen Security System Control System at the Broome County Correctional Facility, and to integrate the touchscreen system with a new Milestone CCTV video management system. Broome County has utilized Black Creek security control systems in the Jail and Court since 1995.

Black Creek will replace the existing touchscreen control stations at 18 control locations with the latest version, utilizing the Windows® 10 operating system and Black Creek’s latest touchscreen control software. The project also includes furnishing and installing new server computers and a new secure, high-speed VPN appliance for remote diagnostics and support via the Internet. The existing Card Access Control and Watch Tour Manager® administrative workstations will also be replaced with new computers utilizing the latest software for each system.

In addition, Black Creek will also provide an interface to the new Milestone Video Recording and Management System being implemented at the facility by the County under a separate contract with Siemens, who will also replace existing analog cameras with new Axis IP cameras. This Milestone video management system will replace the existing Vicon CCTV video management system, which has been designated End-of-Life by the manufacturer. The County is standardizing on Milestone Video Management software in all County buildings.

The new Black Creek system will improve the safety of staff and visitors with its enhanced functionality that the current control system does not provide. Each Super Display® Touchscreen station features HD LCD monitors that display all the facility’s security controls and a CCTV camera call-up and video display. An officer can easily select different camera viewpoints, control facility utilities, and more. The system upgrade will make security control easier and save the facility money by decreasing maintenance costs and increasing staff efficiency.
