Technology moves quickly. What is state-of-the-art today, can quickly become yesterday’s technology and for traffic management professionals, this is a major headache. The reason is that traffic management control rooms have to be designed, not just for current needs, or even for the next five years but for the needs of a decade or more into the future. With the speed of technology change driving demands on the traffic management infrastructure, it is very easy to make design decisions today that take a facility into a technology dead-end from which there is no escape but an expensive refit – often long before the system has reached the end of its planned life.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Mitsubishi Electric has been in the control room business for many decades and so has, perhaps, a better appreciation than most about the need to maintain the versatility to adapt when key technologies or requirements change. One such example is its replacement DLP cube projection engines, which enable older mercury-lamp installations to be upgraded to the latest LED illumination technology very easily and at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire system. As many customers across EMEA have already discovered, it is frequently much more cost-effective to replace their old systems with a Mitsubishi Electric solution as the dramatically reduced running costs pay for the upgrade in just a few years.
Mitsubishi Electric is showcasing its display solutions on the Dynniq booth at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2016, which is open for the last day today at RAI Amsterdam. To find out more about Mitsubishi’s display technology solutions for today and tomorrow, visit us on booth 10.101, 10.203
