Emergencies such as fires, major accidents, chemical incidents or global medical emergencies can occur anywhere. Yet the teams responding to these emergencies often need access to a complex mixture of information in order to manage incidents effectively. A new portable videowall display system developed in conjunction with French engineering firm IRTS, allows Mitsubishi Electric LCD videowalls to be deployed rapidly into emergency command centres, giving emergency responders the ability to create a mobile command and control centre, equipped with with a big-screen video wall application every bit as powerful as a permanent control room.
The new display system was designed around some strict criteria: It had to be installed by two personnel in 15 minutes or less, and require no tools or additional equipment. A specially-designed cam-lock system adapted from Mitsubishi's LED display modules, allows the 55" LCD panels to be very rapidly attached to a motorised frame to create a high-specification 4K display, which can be raised up to 3m. A ruggedised Datapath screen controller allows a wide variety of data and video sources to be viewed, and the whole system travels in specially designed flightcases built to survive rough handling and deployment over difficult terrain.
