Inside the Situation Room

For more than four decades, the Situation Room at the White House has been the hub of presidential activity during historic moments, from the Cuban missile crisis to Hurricane Katrina. But for all of its importance, it had fallen way behind the technology curve. A radically updated Situation Room–actually, a suite of rooms–is set to go into operation on December 27 after four and a half months of renovations.

New technology being put into place in the main conference room includes NEC plasma flat-screen TVs for secure videoconferences, while the remainder of the facility is getting LCD TVs from LG, according to The New York Times, two of whose reporters toured the Situation Room this week.
