Command centers and control rooms are the very core of mission critical operations. These operations need to be backed with the best technologies and mechanisms to allow for an uninterrupted flow of information. Large screen video is a vital component for communicating real time events and monitoring systems on a day-to-day basis.
With space being a constraint in many control rooms, an LCD video wall is a smart option. LCD video walls have a small footprint and can be mounted on the wall or enclosed in a freestanding cabinet specially designed for this purpose. These video walls can be used for security and network monitoring and displaying live footage during emergency and military operations anywhere in the world. When investing in a video wall, it is important to look for characteristics such as high resolution imaging, simplified performance, dependability, and low cost of ownership.
In the past LCD video walls were limited to displays with thick bezels that were distracting and unsightly when an image was enlarged across multiple displays. This problem is effectively addressed with the latest ultra-thin LCD displays designed specifically for professional applications. These new screens provide a relative seamless matrix that allows a single image to span the entire combined screen surface without the distracting bezels. To accompany these video walls are control room consoles where the operators are positioned so that they can interact with each other and react to what appears on the video wall. These control room consoles are especially designed for intensive use with the latest ergonomic features and laid out in such a fashion to improve work flow.
Another important attribute of an LCD video wall is that it should be able to grow concurrently with the scale of operations.
Here are some other defining attributes of an LCD video wall:
Modern LCD video walls are an accepted solution for today’s control rooms. There are a variety of designs and brands available, however choosing and integrator with experience in control room applications is critical to the overall success of the installation, training and support for the video wall after purchase.
