The design of display systems for IP CCTV very much depends on the size of the system to be installed and the planned monitoring arrangements
Smaller systems that typically would be unmonitored can typically be accommodated with a single or small number of LCD screens.
Larger systems may utilise a full monitor wall solution supplemented by desk monitors. In this instance, technologies such as rear screen projection, large professional LCD display screens, plasma and front projection can all play a role.
The ability to display multi screen camera images mixed with other control applications, supporting data (such as mapping), network alarm status and television pictures should be considered as this will deliver and more effective monitoring system.
The increasingly popular trend of CCTV camera manufacturers to utilise 16:9 wide screen format camera systems and the future move as technology develops to higher resolution, larger and (non-standard) wider formats all need to be considered when compiling the display system design.
As camera counts continue to rise strategies for the management of displays for larger systems need to be developed and integrated into the command & control system. This allows for targeted monitoring of displays by time and operator position to be allocated targeting surveillance in the areas needed.
Ergonomic factors also need to be planned at the outset to ensure potential health & safety risks are not introduced and to maximise monitoring effectiveness. Environmental considerations such as power consumption, the need for additional cooling and variable room & workspace lighting sympathetic to the display systems need to be initially incorporated into the overall design.
Comfort Zone have undertaken many control system installations with display requirements ranging from the simple dual LCD displays to CCTV security control rooms with multiple technologies and complex integration requirements.
