Control Rooms

Audio Visual Technology Helping You Stay In Control

The need to make quick, informed decisions based on multiple data streams has always been imperative. Control Rooms, Decision Theatres or Operations Rooms are spaces that provide a central location where multiple disciplines can be brought together to achieve shared goals and objectives.

Universal AV has helped clients install audio-visual control systems for control rooms to monitor an array of information from logistics of goods and vehicles through to key response times for emergency services.

AV Solutions for Control Rooms

In control room environments the information to be displayed is detailed by the client; how it appears needs to be accessible and clearly visible. This is where we can help. It is our job to get this information on screen in a precise and clear manner through the use of audio-visual control systems. The use of commercial large format displays, projections or videowalls is perfect for this application. When integrated with multiviewers, switchers, wireless connectivity, interactive touch technology and streaming products, Universal AV can design systems which will treat your multiple data with the urgency it deserves.

Control Systems

Control solutions are invaluable when looking at control rooms. How the client needs the solution to work, will there be several inputs needed, will they need to switch easily are really important factors when looking at a solution. Simple programs can be designed by Universal AV to ensure you can control your solution simply, so no time or data is lost.

Video Wall Displays

A control room usually heavily features a large-scale display. This is usually a commercial display videowall, however, as costs have reduced, we are also seeing LED feature heavily in this area.  No one solution is right as we will work with you to determine how you wish to work and the room dynamics to determine the best visual solution to meet your needs.
