Global visualization technology company Barco has launched a new LCD video wall system for traffic and transportation control rooms, which it says will ‘redefine the market’ due to its bezel-less construction.
Barco says its new UniSee LCD video wall platform surpasses all other offerings currently available, and will become the Belgian company’s flagship product in the LCD control room display market.
The UniSee is based on a modular platform, with individual in-house designed and produced LCM panels, which are fitted onto an innovative mounting system that is powered by gravity. For those that rely on visualization technology, such as operators of traffic management centers (TMCs) and control rooms, the new UniSee should be able to provide unrivalled performance, as the entire LCD video wall is completely bezel-less, with virtually no visible gap between the LCD tiles, creating a seamless viewing experience. The mounting system, which ensures perfect alignment of the LCM panels, also hosts all input and power modules, resulting in significantly reduced set-up and maintenance requirements for installers, IT professionals and facilities managers.
The key features of the UniSee platform include:
NoGap technology makes the inter-tile gap almost invisible from normal viewing distances;
UniSee Mount uses gravity to self-align the LCD tiles, which slide into place in any direction along the X, Y and Z axes and allows easy undocking of the panels in case servicing is required;
‘Sense X’ continuous, real-time color and brightness calibration system ensures a perfectly balanced image at all times, with no variation between center and edges;
UniSee Connect software platform automatically assigns and calibrates the panels and acts as a single point of connection for remote diagnostics and control.
The technical features of the individual LCD panels include:
A 55in (140cm) active display area with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080);
Typical brightness of 800 cd/ m², with minimal haze level (<44%);
Approximate 100,000 hours lifetime (around 67% longer than most mainstream solutions);
VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) compliant.
“We have made material investments in LCD, positioning the company for growth in the LCD-video wall market for the coming years,” noted George Stromeyer, senior vice-president and general manager of Barco’s enterprise division.
“We are very proud of the new UniSee product, which will become our flagship LCD video wall platform from here on in. It fits firmly within our ambitious growth strategy, strengthening our position as a technology leader in visualization solutions by raising the bar for the LCD video wall market.”
