Control rooms are mission critical environments where monitoring, emergency response, command operations or process control depend on the most reliable and powerful technology. In these environments, operators need tools that optimize their decision making.
Versatile, ultra-high resolution video walls and large format displays are a key component of a control room technology platform, providing sharp visibility of data and the flexibility to display it in the most effective way.
When the operation is critical - and safety is at stake - downtime is no option. That's why control room engineers need proven technology and systems they know they can rely on. High-performance displays designed for 24x7 operation and equipped with built-in redundant power supplies ensure fail-safe and continuous operation.
To maximize situational awareness, control room personnel need visualization technologies that are crisp and ultra-sharp and allow the most accurate and efficient interpretation of visual data, especially at critical moments. High-resolution video walls and large-format displays with wide viewing angles ensure that data, maps and detailed sources are perfectly sharp and visible from anywhere in the room.
Life cycle and total cost of ownership are important economic considerations when selecting a control room display system. To fully leverage the investment, some systems use built-in technologies and designs for longer life.
Service and Support
Maintaining uptime and the most functional environment is a top priority for control rooms. To ensure that display technologies are properly integrated into a control room system and continue to function optimally in the future, it is important to work with a supplier who not only has experience but also provides access to help whenever it is needed.
With on-site technical advice, installation and 24/7 technical support after installation, Leyard Europe is committed to the success of a control room project - from planning and installation to ongoing operation.
Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) are dedicated to the vital responsibility for emergency and disaster management and response. EOC personnel have to quickly analyze real-time information to make operational decisions and provide resources in response to emergency situations. Bright and crisp video walls and displays are fundamental tools in EOCs that increase the visibility of critical data and improve interpretation, speed and effectiveness of action.
Network Operations Centers (NOCs) provide 24/7 management and control of a network's infrastructure environment. NOC technicians continuously monitor the performance of the network system and work to identify and resolve problems to ensure optimal and uninterrupted service. Sharp video wall installations are an important resource for obtaining a comprehensive view of a network's ecosystem. Flexible installations can connect to different technologies and allow multiple display configurations as needed.
Control rooms for utilities and energy plants include real-time process control for power generation and distribution, water and wastewater systems, as well as oil and gas production and distribution. In these environments, reliable display technologies ensure smooth and continuous operation and minimize downtime. Compatibly designed video walls and displays can be configured for SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems to optimize monitoring and management.
Control rooms of traffic management centers fulfill the important task of controlling the flow of traffic, reducing congestion, increasing safety and improving the overall efficiency of transportation systems. Traffic control display solutions require round-the-clock reliability and image quality that supports clear visualization of data, maps and video surveillance.
Security and surveillance control rooms provide video surveillance and 24x7 protection for a variety of public facilities and private property. High-resolution video screens designed for long duty cycles provide reliable performance around the clock. Display solutions with embedded flexibility can be compatible with multiple sources.
Briefing and situation meeting rooms - usually in connection with military and governmental centers - are used to support high-level meetings or to manage crisis situations. State-of-the-art video walls and screens, equipped with the flexibility to support video conferencing, act as a focal point in these rooms to display important information and support high-priority decisions.
