  • Airport Control Room Displays

    Displays for Airport Operational Centres

    As the central control and information hub, the airport operations centre needs to efficiently coordinate all airport operational activities and ensure security of the airport infrastructure at all times. A–CDM is enabling up-to-date information to be shared between various stakeholders.

    These stakeholders will have multiple sources of data, and a need to view this data not only in the control room but also in crisis management rooms that maybe located on different buildings or even sites. Sharp NEC’s Hiperwall solution provides a real-time collaborative work environment that enables multiple controllers to select, arrange and control multiple sources, set event conditions, select pre-configured wall layouts, record and control 24/7 operations.

    Sharp NEC’s control room solutions does not rely upon a proprietary hardware but instead utilises open standard IP based network systems, LED backlit video wall displays, a main controller workstation and our unique wall management software.

    Multiple projectors or additional video walls can be combined into a single control environment, allowing source data to be moved between main control room and ancillary crisis rooms in real time, either by the main controller or via secondary (remote) controllers.
