Full communications, audio and video integration services.

Systems include radio gateway system that patches any radio frequency between radios or radios to telephone or cellphone for interoperable voice communication.

Redundant connectivity is provided in prioritized sequencing that provides connectivity through VSAT, 3G/4G, WiFi or available external Ethernet or fiberoptics connections. 

All integrated systems are custom designed . The system is pre-programmed to sequentially start up all integrated components by activation of a single button.  When the workstation monitors light up, the system is ready to begin operations. No worries related to forgetting proper start up sequences or forgetting to activate a critical component.


If you acquired a mobile command and communications vehicles more than two years ago, chances are it does not have current technological capabilities for enhanced interoperable communications and on-site networking.

Hackney has resident electronic communications engineers that are available for evaluation and consultation on how to refresh or incorporate current technologies into your existing vehicle for far less than you might think. Integration of an eight-channel radio gateway that permits communicating between disparate radio frequencies and ability to patch any radio frequency to any telephone, cellular phone or any other voice communications device. Wireless WiFi networks that creates a powerful “hotspot” up to one-quarter mile around the vehicle, permitting authorized users to access the network from laptops, tablets and smartphones. Satellite and/or 3G/4G connectivity for remote access to the internet for moving data, VoIP telephone calls, email, etc. Any or all of these and other services can be performed by the Hackney team.

Audiovisual systems can be installed that are  capable of supporting up to seven displays with multi-imaging of surveillance cameras, perimeter camera, hand-held cameras, DVR recorder, DVD player and computer audio and video. The user can route sources to any display along with recall presets from a multi-graphic processor. The audiovisual systems are designed for fast and simplistic establishment of tactical video surveillance, video monitoring, video recording and video and audio display.

Minimum features available to the operator can include: color camera video surveillance , thermal imaging video, video matrix switching to route video and audio input feeds to multitple televisions located in and around the vehicle, a multi-graphic processor to display up to four video feeds to any television, ability to route the video and audio of up to four computers to any television, external auxiliary ports for additional outdoor video and audio feeds, a 10” LCD touch panel running a customized Graphical User Interface (GUI) to control the audiovisual system and video recording for playback.

System Components and Capabilities

The video surveillance system shall be comprised of modular system components that can be configured to meet a wide variety of safety and security applications. There shall be four primary system components included in the system configuration: Camera Assembly (cameras), Video Processor, System Controller and Mast Power Interface. The camera(s) must be configured for various levels of performance and or function, depending on the application. The video processor will be the central component of the surveillance system. It shall process all video and data inputs and outputs to and from each of the primary system components.

All systems are custom configured for the number of screens and camera inputs desired. Screen displays (GUI’s) are configured with agency name and nomenclature configured for the installed system.

Systems may vary from simplistic viewing, recording of single camera and single screen viewing to multiple cameras and other devices with multiple split screen viewing, routing to any number of remote televisions and high capacity digital recording with instant playback.
