Delta videowall monitors India’s first smart city29 July 2016
Delta Displays in collaboration with channel partner Alpha Digital has delivered a full HD videowall solution for India’s first Smart City Centre in Surat, Gujarat, to monitor over 30 different operations for city management.
Surat Smart City Centre is an initiative of Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC), which will enable the operators to oversee all the activities in the city on a single screen. Surat is one of the first 20 cities selected under the Indian government’s smart city programme, which is also aiming to change the working pattern of the SMC.
The 4×4 LED-lit DLP videowall and videowall controller enables control room operators to monitor data feeds from various sources including transport, city planning, water supply, property tax, disease surveillance, CCTV, health, GIS, traffic signals, illegal constructions, and others.
The 6m wide screen comprising of 16 Delta 70in DLP Video Walls will help operators keep track of different development projects of Surat city and monitor the activities of various departments of SMC. This centre is also linked with the Safe City Surat Project of the Surat police department that also has Delta’s Video Walls installed in the control room.
SMC’s deputy commissioner said: “At the smart city centre, monitoring of different services, like night brushing, cleaning of roads, garbage collection and disposal, road repairing, health services and illegal constructions, can be done on Delta’s Video Wall solutions. The SMC surveillance system would be strengthened further as the feed from the police camera network would be available at Smart City Centre. These centres will help us to serve citizens in an effective manner.”
