Huge Panasonic videowall for Portuguese traffic control hub7 August 2014
The largest motorway management company in Portugal, Brisa, has deployed a new 40sqm Panasonic videowall at its Operational Control Centre to help ensure the safe monitoring of 1100km of motorway.
A total of 44 Panasonic 55in displays (TH-55LV5W) make up the video wall, which helps Brisa manage mobility across 11 motorways and provide an immediate response to unforeseen events and accidents.
“We had a lot of problems with our previous video wall,” explained Pedro Sobral, project manager at Brisa. “However, the new Panasonic displays look more modern and are more efficient, which maximises the availability of the tools within Brisa’s Operational Control Centre.”
The displays, which were installed by systems integrator Prosonic, are able to work seamlessly 24 hours a day. They are specifically designed for the control room market, boasting an anti-glare surface and an ultra-thin 5.3mm bezel.
“The new monitoring system means Brisa benefits from exceptional image quality and reduced maintenance costs for its video wall,” said João Farinha, from Prosonic’s Integrated Solutions Division. “The customer feedback has been excellent and Brisa is extremely happy. The Panasonic monitors are even exceeding Brisa’s requirements in terms of image quality,” he added.
The ultra-thin bezel allows Brisa the option to display a single image across various screens, with virtually no discontinuity in the image.
