GrandiStazioni Rail Install Panasonic Video Walls

As part of a large-scale security modernisation project, Panasonic video walls have been installed at five of Italy’s busiest railway stations.

34 new screens are being used in security rooms at stations in Bologna, Florence, Verona, Genoa and Venice, with a view to enhancing public safety and overall efficiency.

Over 3.5 million people travel on Italy’s busy railways every day, and security is absolutely paramount. Mauro Destro from AVN Sistemi gave some details about the technical aspects of the installation.

“Panasonic was chosen to meet some fundamental requirements. The first concerns image quality; we wanted an IPS panel with LED backlighting, local dimming, luminance of 500 cd/m² and a contrast ratio of 1400:1.

The second requirement is related to the 178° viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, to ensure that visibility is always high and that staff suffer less visual fatigue during monitoring operations”.
