  • NEC Video Wall Panels and Displays, Crestron Control System and Touch Screens - Please refer to scope of works for full product breakdown

ESTA provides the critical link between the Victorian community and the state’s emergency services agencies. It provides Victoria’s 24-hour emergency call-taking and dispatch services for police, fire, ambulance and VICSES. In 2018-19, ESTA answered 2,605,574 calls for assistance, representing a call every 12 seconds or more than 7100 a day. The total number of events dispatched were 2,232,116 an average of more than 6100 each day.

In 2018-19, ESTA implemented its Integrated Strategic Plan 2023 (ISP2023), a five-year road map to align its core services with the expectations of its partner agencies and the community. One of the core directives involved strengthening service resilience and surge management by moving to an “all services at multiple sites model.” Primarily, this involved a move of core facilities to a new site at Williams Landing.

As part of this move, ESTA – with the guidance of Lucid Consulting Australia – contracted the design and integration team at Vision One to develop and deploy audio visual turnkey solutions to support the needs of the new facility.

Vision One Technologies are proud to be associated with, and to deliver this major project with the collaborative assistance of Crestron ANZ and AT Control Pty Ltd.
