Control Rooms

Mission-Critical Visualization

Control Rooms are mission-critical environments where monitoring, emergency response, command operations or process control depend on the most reliable and high performing technology. In these settings, operators need tools that optimize their decision-making.

Versatile, ultra-high resolution video walls and large format displays are a key component of a control room's technology platform, providing sharp visibility of data and the flexibility to display it in the most effective way.

Ultimate Reliability

When the operation is critical—and safety and security are at stake—downtime is not an option. That’s why Control Room engineers need proven technologies and systems they know they can count on. High-performance displays designed for 24x7 use and engineered with built-in, redundant power supplies ensure that operations are failsafe and always continuous.

Optimal Clarity

To enhance situational awareness, Control Room personnel requires display technologies that are vivid and ultra-sharp, facilitating the most accurate and efficient interpretation of visual data—especially during crucial moments. High resolution video walls and large format displays with wide viewing angles ensure that data, maps and detailed sources are abundantly crisp and visible from anywhere in the room.

Extended Lifetime

Lifecycle and total cost-of-ownership are important economic considerations in the selection of a Control Room display system. To maximize investment, built-in technologies and designs are incorporated with some systems to help them last longer.

Service and Support

Maintaining uptime and the most functional environment are of the highest priority for Control Rooms. To ensure display technologies are properly integrated with a Control Room’s system and will continue to perform optimally into the future, it’s important to partner with a supplier who not only offers experience but access to help whenever needed.

With local technical consulting, installation and post-installation 24x7 technical support, Planar is committed to the success of a Control Room project—from design and installation to ongoing operation.

Command & Control

Command and Control Centers serve as key decision-making hubs for directing high-priority missions—from military operations to space flight control. To provide peak tactical and logistical support, Command and Control personnel need access to real-time visual analytics that are optimized for clarity and comprehension. Seamless high resolution video walls create sharp, vividly-clear content that scales across the entirety of the screen—enhancing situational awareness and empowering decisions.

Emergency Operations

Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) are tasked with the vital responsibility of emergency and disaster management and response. EOC personnel must quickly analyze real-time information to make operational decisions and deploy resources in response to emergency situations. Bright and crisp video walls and displays are integral tools in EOCs that heighten the visibility of critical data, improving interpretation and the speed and effectiveness to act on it.

Network Operations

Network Operations Centers (NOCs) provide 24x7 management and control of a network’s infrastructure environment. NOC technicians continually monitor network system performance and work to identify and resolve issues to ensure optimal and uninterrupted service. Sharp video wall installations are a critical resource for providing a big picture view of a network ecosystem. Flexible installations can interface with different technologies and allow multiple viewing configurations depending on the need.

Utility & Energy Operations

Control Rooms for utility and energy include real-time process control for power generation and distribution, water and wastewater systems, as well as oil and gas production and distribution. In these environments, reliable displays technologies ensure that operations are smooth and continuous, and downtime is minimized. Video walls and displays designed with compatibility can be configured to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems to optimize supervision and management.

Traffic Operations

Traffic Management Centers Control Rooms serve the important role of managing traffic flow, reducing congestion, enhancing safety and improving the overall efficiency of transportation systems. Display solutions for traffic control require 24x7 reliability and the image quality to support clear visualizations of data, maps and video surveillance.

Security & Surveillance

Security and Surveillance Control Rooms provide video monitoring and 24x7 protection for a wide range of public facilities and private property. High resolution video displays built for long-duty cycles offer dependable, around-the-clock performance. Display solutions with embedded flexibility can be compatible with different sources.

Briefing & Situation Rooms

Briefing and Situation Rooms—mostly linked with military and government hubs—are designed to support high-level meetings or manage crisis situations. Leading-edge video walls and displays, equipped with the flexibility to support video conferencing, function as a focal point in these spaces for displaying key intelligence and supporting decisions of the highest priority.
