Control Room Technology Installed at High Security Prison
A high-security prison in the United Kingdom has upgraded its video control room to the latest technology.
UVS which installed a security control room video wall consisting of an LCD video wall and video wall controller at the prison in 2009 was commissioned to undertake the updates.
The prison, which cannot be identified for security reasons, has now registered almost 115,000 hours of uninterrupted, 24/7 display operation.
As part of the project, UVS installed the latest in LCD narrow bezel video wall technology, with the company also scheduled to upgrade the video wall controller in coming months.
In 2016, after more than six years of constant 24/7 operation, the initial system installed by UVS was upgraded to provide the latest in IP CCTV video wall controller functionality.
UVS managing director, Steve Murphy, comments: “We are proud that during our almost 16 years of operation, many clients have relied on us to install their first control room video wall solutions and continued to rely on us to provide multiple video wall upgrades when the technology moves forward.”
“This track record has ultimately led to the customer upgrading its technology with us.
“The upgrades are for operational personnel to continue to have the benefits that the latest video wall technology brings, with new features, the latest operating systems that are fully supported and to ensure all equipment can be fully maintained via extended warranties and annual support contracts, which becomes difficult once installed equipment becomes obsolete.”
