Power and utilities

Large video display walls are ideal for information sharing - especially in operations centers that watch over power and utility generation, transmission and distribution.

The master control room of an average utility can be a stressful environment. Utility companies must manage their resources carefully to minimize costly disruptions to service. You need to assimilate data from multiple sources to create accurate, usable information. The people who staff your operations center need clear information to make informed decision on critical issues – ensuring consistent and uninterrupted service for your customers.

We’ve been providing purpose-built, rear-screen tiling projectors for control room environments for more than 30 years. Our video wall controllers and video wall display cubes ensure the projection systems you choose will show native HD content or standard content in a variety of viewable formats that are dynamically configured in size and aspect ratio.
