Advanced Selected As Integrator For TTC Transit Control Room Upgrade


Advanced, Canada’s leading AV and IT integrator, today announced that it has been selected by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to upgrade the videowall in their mission-critical Transit Control room. The announcement, made by Advanced Co-President David Weatherhead, comes after a year of record-setting growth.
“We are excited to be selected by TTC for this prestigious project,” Weatherhead said today. “Advanced was selected from a pool of elite Canadian integrators, and we are eager to begin the updating process. Work will begin immediately, and we anticipate that the installation will be completed within the next few months.”
The Transit Control room oversees every vital Toronto Transit System operation. As the largest referrer to 911, Transit Control workers are responsible for maintaining order in an emergency. The room holds 98 employees, 22 per shift, working 24/7 to track the trains.
This announcement comes during a year of high profile installations that includes being hired by Air Canada to install cutting edge presentation and communication tools throughout their new facility.
“As a part of the Air Canada project, our team designed two large conference rooms, four medium sized meeting rooms, two open concept collaboration spaces, two large training rooms and three small training rooms, each with a SMART Board and slim PC,” said Weatherhead.
