Broadcasting Control Rooms
Broadcast Television and cable networks are expected to produce and provide audio and video programming with no interruptions. However, there are several aspects involved in order for the networks to seamlessly deliver the desired programming to the viewers. The networks must monitor, manage and combine various television broadcasts such as live video feeds, explanatory content as well as previously recorded footage.
Public Safety Control Rooms
Operators, as well as first responders, need to have full situation awareness enabling the capability to make well-informed decisions for deploying quicker and appropriate action responses. Enhancing public safety responses requires control rooms have access to view reliable and accurate data from multiple sources such as live, real-time video surveillance feeds, maps, traffic conditions and weather. Achievement of full situation awareness is a time-critical factor, especially when lives are on the line.
Traffic Monitoring and Control Operations Rooms
Optimizing safety and efficiency for any mode of transportation, whether it is by air, rail, road or sea, the staff in operations rooms must have complete visibility over the area being monitored. Therefore, Operation rooms must be able to simultaneously display video surveillance, sensor information, maps and various types of traffic data, such as vehicle speed, volume and flow speeds.
Videowalls displays require integration of a reliable, durable and powerful platform that offers 24/7 operation as well as 4K resolution and multiple displays support. The platform controller integrated must be built with high-performance CPU, high-end graphics and Multi-Display Graphics processing technologies. Features offered must provide expansion capabilities and I/O flexibility options including multiple display outputs ports such as HDMI, VGA and DVI-D.
