The State Control Centre (SCC) is Victoria’s primary control centre for the management of emergencies. It’s main purpose is to provide a facility to meet the State Control Centre’s priorities and objectives. A key part of this is the delivery of up-to-date information so that decisions can be made quickly and easily within succinct time frames. So, when Erbas Engineers approached DIB Australia for an AV solution for this unique space, attention to detail and a clear understanding of the clients needs were paramount to the success of this project.
The State Control Centre required an AV solution for a Video Wall that was simple to use, but could display many different configurations. This was a unique, custom AV installation that required attention to detail, including testing of equipment and configurations to make sure everything would work well once installed. This included achieving an amazing 2.5mm bezel from screen to screen.
After much consultation with the client, an AV solution was determined, which involved the creation of a Video Wall, using a total of sixteen LG 55LV35A 55” LCD TV panels. This would create four 4 x 4 configured video walls, with the ability to be used as individual screens or 4 large 110” video walls. A total of 20 different inputs could be selected with multiple end users controlling the system so a simple user interface was important to the client. As is the approach with all DIB Australia installations, creating simplicity and ease-of-use of the AV system is key. With this in mind, an Extron 10” Colour Monitor (TLP Pro 1020T) with simplified custom controls to enable the system to be used easily and effectively. Ipad control of the system was also a desired feature enabling the end user the freedom to move around the room and make changes as required from any location.
This simple-to-use control panel was the interface to other key components in the system, including the Extron IPCP Pro 550 processor and a Kramer VS-3232DN Modular Matrix Switcher, which was used to handle the multiple inputs, including video signal routing within the system.
Training was also provided by DIB to the relevant staff at the State Control Centre to ensure the system was utilised to it’s full potential.
