Barco Introduces Video Wall for Big Data Collaboration and Monitoring

Blended-Cubes-017_white_other_content2-jpg-0114Barco’s new OverView Seamless Videowall (OSV) series is a large panoramic seamless canvas that can display a mix of data and video in high quality without the distraction of seams or bezels. This curved display suits the visualization needs of a multitude of applications — from crisis operations rooms, to brainstorming and planning rooms, to more traditional control room applications in utilities, energy and process control. As part of a full solution, the LED-lit OSV also comes with TransForm C, a controller and collaboration management system that enables all content to be positioned optimally on the screen by means of an easy-to-use graphical user interface with touchscreen.

The trend towards using huge amounts of information (Big Data) to enhance decision-making requires larger resolution canvasses to visualize this abundance of data in the most optimal way. That’s why Barco is introducing the OverView Seamless Videowall (OSV) – a large curved video wall that combines the advantages of using rear-projection cubes (24/7 reliability, high uniformity, and short throwing distances) with Barco’s advanced image processing to create a panoramic seamless canvas. This means that all information is displayed in the most efficient way, with no distracting interruptions in the visualization of critical data.

The first three OSV models – the OSV-340C, OSV-560C  and OSV-790C — offer display canvasses of 3.8, 6.2 and 8.5 megapixels, respectively. Sizes vary from 3.5 to 6.5 meters (138 to 256 inches) in width, giving every participant a front row seat. The display’s height is fixed at 1.4 meters (55 inches). All models feature a curved screen for better viewing ergonomics from every position in the room and that also cuts down on reflections.

In addition, direct integration of a Barco ClickShare wireless presentation system allows users to display content from their laptop, smartphone or tablet on the video wall by simply clicking a button. Every ClickShare source is available in its full native resolution. Depending on the configuration, up to eight users can use ClickShare to share content on the OSV for maximum collaboration.
