Today, Barco introduces a new panel in its tiled LCD video wall portfolio. The OverView IVD range joins the existing OverView OVD and KVD ranges, Barco’s worry-free LCD video wall displays tailored for use in control rooms. With its high brightness (700 cd/m²), low TCO, and special display surface optimized for displaying bright backgrounds and content, the IVD range is recommended for use in control rooms that predominantly use content with a white background. Barco's OverView portfolio couples the traditional advantages of tiled LCD video walls – excellent image quality, minimum space requirement, and an advantageous price setting – with a number of innovations to ensure availability and to optimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The IVD5521 continues this excellent tradition, and brings a solution for use in environments with challenging light conditions, that predominantly use white backgrounded content.
Tailored to use in critical environments Because control rooms are highly critical environments, the uptime of all components needs to be assured. Not only must components be safeguarded against failure, but maintenance time must also be restricted to a minimum.
In order to optimize uptime, and also to contribute to the wall’s low TCO, Barco developed the unique Sense X automatic color and brightness calibration system − based on integrated color sensors − to counter the classic problem of shifts in color and brightness levels in LCD video walls. This technology balances the video wall automatically, avoiding the need for expensive and time-consuming manual calibration.
In addition, to eliminate downtime due to power supply failure, the optional redundant external power supply automatically switches to a new unit if one fails. And because the power supply is remote, it can be maintained without disturbing operations. Furthermore, this system also reduces labor cost by enabling any staff member – not only (expensive) certified technicians – to replace defective power supply units.
