Video display walls from Christie Digital Systems (Christie) are used in the control rooms of many electric utilities, water treatment plants, chemical refineries, and other organizations, allowing for more-efficient security and operations management. Christie manufactures LCD, DLP, and LED display products, including flat panels, video-wall tiled displays, projectors, and indoor direct-view LED displays, in addition to a suite of image processing solutions.

The video walls range in size from 4 feet to more than 255 feet wide and may present a variety of SCADA content, operational dashboards, surveillance camera images, building management system data, digital television channels delivering news and/or weather information, social media activity, and other computer applications in different window combinations depending on the operational state of the facility and the time of day.

“The ability to access, combine, and manage this data together in essentially any format allows customers to create a common operational picture and view information in any number of useful combinations,” says Karl Johnson, director of product management at Christie.

A layered, unified approach to security supported by recent innovations such as those described above may be your best strategy for safeguarding people and property from ever-expanding physical threats.
