Peel Regional Police Choose Audience Software to Launch Digital Signage Network

Peel Regional Police have announced the deployment of a new digital signage communications network to be installed in 5 divisions and up to 8 community stations in summer 2010. The network will be powered by the Audience software platform and installed by Markham based Capital Networks Limited.

Peel Regional Police are the 3rd largest municipal force in Canada with up to 2,700 Uniformed and Civilian Members serving over 1,200,000 citizens as well as Pearson International Airport which sees 32 million travelers each year.

The project was initiated as a means to enhance internal communications and public relations. The Audience platform will be responsible for controlling both a public facing channel and a back-of-house internal channel. Bulletins containing internal content will be broadcast to officers via LCD screens deployed throughout staff only areas. Alternate content will be displayed on screens installed in public areas and will include building and community relations information.

Blake Reeves, North American Channel Manager at Capital Networks, commented: “The Audience software platform was designed with this very type of installation in mind. The fact that our product provides scheduling and content control to individual departments while maintaining the ability to post network wide, real time emergency messaging from one centralized location was key. We’re thrilled to have been selected by the Peel Regional Police to provide the platform and service needed for this very exciting project.”
