Screens are now a cornerstone of the way we work, communicate and collaborate.
Digital transformation is a hot buzzword today. At Gartner’s IT Symposium 2020, it was a repeated theme throughout the virtual event. Digital transformation means different things to different people (and different industries), but all digital transformation projects share a single driving force: modernization to ensure your business doesn’t fall behind.
Another thing every single digital transformation project has in common: there is a visual element. Digital transformation is so broad that the list of commonalities isn’t long, but when you think about it, you’ll realize it’s true: every digital transformation has a visual element.
Situational awareness is the core mission of any control room or operation center: Getting the right information to the right person at the right time to make the right decision. While many organizations investing in video wall solutions to help deliver situational awareness focus on issues like what video management system to include, the correct emergency communications technologies and of course, what solution they want to manage and control the video wall and its content, there’s a critical issue that should never be overlooked: security. More and more control room and operation centers are online, more and more AV solutions require network access. IT departments are increasingly concerned about the many apps, devices, content and access points across the network. Security compliance should be top of mind when investing in a display solution for an operation center or control room and below are some of the points to consider.
AV-over-IP solutions that use standard TCP/IP communication through standard switches and routers, provide a broad variety of lock-down options for security conscious customers. By using a standard network, customers can lock down their own network tools, switches, routers according to their own security protocols and using familiar network monitoring tools.
