Ajar Technology reviewed the requirements and the use case and put forward a design which met the specification and provided added value to the client.
The videowall displays used are ultra-narrow bezel (0.9mm) 24/7 rated commercial displays for seamless image reproduction, ultra-high brightness of 700cmd and Full HD resolution. Specifically manufactured for control room environments, there is no perceptible bezel, the high brightness will exceed ambient light requirements and provide the required resolution to view maps/tv feeds from any angle.
The videowall processors provided for displaying sources simultaneously in any size, in any location across the videowall as a single canvas. Catering for 18no. hardwired inputs, 2no. spare hardwired inputs and 180no.+ multicast inputs, it exceeded the existing requirements and futureproofed for additional sources.
The AV control system provided for infinite pre-set layouts via an initiative 10” touch panel on a central desk. An additional management PC provided for simple custom layout changes for ultimate flexibility. 6 additional displays are integrated to the system; any source can be displayed in these locations for multi-crisis management. 2no. wireless content sharing devices provide for the wireless sharing of smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs as necessary.
The Management PC also manages the digital signage system, providing real-time updates to the 10” signage displays across the 30no desk positions wirelessly, text, data and video can be shown as required. A roving wireless microphone solution was provided, one lapel for the crisis lead and one handheld for ad-hoc participants. A replacement 6 zone time clock with simple drop-down management software for ad-hoc time zones was provided which eradicated the existing usage issues described on the site survey.
