Suffolk came to us to manage a quad-view dashboard for their construction activities. The video feeds would be displayed at their Corporate HQ and allow executives to see all active construction sites.
Located in the vibrant SOMA district, Suffolk’s new San Francisco headquarters is a workplace and showpiece that represents the national construction company’s vision to “transform the construction industry by building smart”. Thoughtful programming and space planning are coupled with a bright white and light wood palette punctuated by Suffolk’s signature red color to create an environment that encourages collaboration, communication, and the use of cutting-edge technology.
The cameras were positioned near the on-going construction and fed to a local computer. The computer had access to Wi-Fi so we knew the possibilities of connecting the feed - but were unaware of the latency issues that might be caused. Also, some of the cameras were taking pictures rather then providing a constant video feed posing an additional challenge.
Our team worked to diagnose the the latency issues and quickly provided a solution to receive four consistent video feeds into one browser window. From there adding overlays, refresh buttons, and company branding rounded out the deliverables. The result was a browser window displaying four live feeds and adaptable to any monitor including televisions.
The team was unaware of the location in which the video feeds would be utilized or viewed from. After a few months after delivery, one of our team members found the images listed on this page and we were in awe of the results!
