Planar Video Walls Create 21st Century Control Room
Minneapolis-based Spye specializes in the creation of digital environments for commercial and residential customers worldwide. Among its flagship projects is a new control room just completed for the float glass plant of Cardinal Glass Industries, located in Portage, Wisconsin. The 350,000 square-foot plant is a producer of high-quality glass products, with manufacturing lines running practically non-stop, year-round. Centerpiece of the new, nearly 1,000 square-foot control room is the a seven-wide by two-high (7x2) array of 46-in Clarity® Matrix™ LCD video wall displays. The video wall provides operators with live camera feeds of key areas of the manufacturing line, enabling them to see actual conditions in each area, as well as a continuous flow of production data.
