Videowall technology supplied by Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) is at the heart of a new security control room at intu Trafford Centre.
The new facility helps to ensure that 30 million annual visitors have a safe and enjoyable time at what is the single best-known and most iconic retail and leisure destination in the UK.
Burnley-based UVS, formerly eyevis UK, provides video wall displays and audio visual solutions to a range of clients across the UK.
As part of the new state of the art facility, UVS installed a 7.2m wide by 2.7m high videowall, made up of 24 eyevis 55-inch XSN Extremely Narrow bezel LCD screens with full HD resolution.
The displays offer 1920 × 1080 pixels, direct-LED backlight technology, a mechanical bezel width of only 3.5 mm between two displays and a brightness of 500 cd/m2.
The installation also includes a control room meeting space featuring a videowall made up of four eyevis 46-inch XSN screens with 3.5mm bezel.
Both videowalls connect to a Netpix 4900 videowall controller configured for multiple analogue video feeds, IP video feeds, graphic PC data and web browsers.
intu security staff, who monitor the centre and liaise with visitors, will be able to send live video from their tablets directly back to the video wall to share incident video with security staff.
UVS managing director Steve Murphy said: “intu Trafford Centre is a retail and leisure destination enjoyed by millions of people each year and it is important that the control room has the latest videowall technology.
“We are delighted to have been involved in such a prestigious and important project.”
Lee Barlow, Security Manager, intu Trafford Centre said “The security and safety of our customers, retailers and staff is our number one priority so having a control room that allows us to keep them safe is really important. The new videowall and meeting room screens allows us to do just that and we are really happy with them.”
The new control room was designed and refurbished by Intech Solutions, which specialise in technical and control room furniture including full control room fit-outs in the UK and worldwide.
UVS also worked to deliver the videowall with its security integrator partner, Nottinghamshire-based Quadrant Security Group.
