The client for this installation is a global defence, aerospace and security company, employing over 83,000 people worldwide. Their wide ranging products and services cover air, land and naval forces, as well as advanced electronics, security, information technology and support services.
The client is developing a ‘Factory of the Future’, designed to demonstrate their advanced manufacturing capabilities. The new build project incorporates a client space, the purpose of which is as a showcase for aerospace development.
The space demanded future proofed, secure technology that could adapt easily to meet the evolving demands of the user.
In early discussions with the client it became apparent that a DEXON video wall controller was the best product for the job. Its modular design allows the client to grow the system over the years as their requirements change, without the need for design changes. DEXON also meets the security requirement for the project, ensuring that none of the sensitive content can be copied or recorded to another device.
The video wall controller controls outputs to a 12 screen video wall, a single large LFD and a large touch enabled display. With switching, routing and scaling of all sources included in the solution, the controller allows the user to view multiple pieces of data and videos in different areas simultaneously.
With a complex and unique set of needs, it was a challenge to determine the different pre-set layouts that the client needed. So an initial selection of layouts was created that were used for a while. This process allowed the users to identify where changes were needed. After a period of time we revisited the installation and worked with the client to adjust and add layouts for them. This included the addition of dynamic window control via an AMX control system. The client now has the option to open any source, anywhere, from a small AMX touch screen controller located in the room.
The installation has brought many benefits to the client including:
- Ease of use to operate
- High quality signal reproduction
- Security peace of mind
- The integrator on this project was Visavvi.
- The project was completed in Spring 2019.
- DEXON products are supplied through Audio Visual Material in the UK.
