For over 40 years, GS Caltex has been a leader in the petroleum and petrochemical sector. More recently, the company has turned its attention toward becoming a total energy service leader.
To achieve this end, the company has been diversifying outside its traditional petroleum and petrochemical businesses, into city gas, LNG, electric power, exploration & production, convenience retail, ebusiness, New and Renewable Energy. By covering the gamut of energy fields, GS Caltex aims to remain a leader in the energy industry and globally competitive.
In undertaking this progressive strategy, GS Caltex understood the need to monitor its energy operations and to be proactive in responding to needs, especially during times of emergency. To meet current needs, and anticipate future needs, the company initiated the process of setting up a situation room in its Seoul-based headquarters, located in GS Tower.
Working together with our Korean partner, Young Jin Visual Technology Co., Ltd, we installed a Christie high-resolution video wall display. During emergencies, critical information and visuals can be presented and selectively displayed on a 2x4 array of Christie RPMX-D120U display 50-inch cubes. A Christie FRC5100 video processor manages the display of multiple images. In addition, the situation room contains a Christie LX55 for routine presentations.
The Christie Advantage
"In the energy industry, it's crucial to deal with emergencies with timely solutions. In this case, the situation room presents the 'big' picture of the situation as well as the ability to drill down to the details, all in a large display, during times of emergency. With the information presented, we can better analyze issues and make critical high-level decisions to resolve them," commented Young Tae Park, Marketing Analysis Team Senior Manager, GS Caltex.
“Situation rooms are part of the nerve system of companies that are in the energy industry. We are pleased to be able to design and install the visual solution needed to facilitate problem solving during critical moments,” said Byeong Woon Lee, Director, Young Jin Visual Technology Co., Ltd.
