“We needed a solution that was able to show the images collected by hundreds of cameras and display that could be mounted on a limited space in which is difficult to maintain it. Also, We needed reliability and a high resolution. 1.920 × 1, 200 pixels of eyevis DLP solution was the answer to our needs", says Firas Abbas, Project Manager at Al - Moashour Ing.
The DLP EC-56-LWXT-1000 is a modular solution that has a screen diagonal of 56 inches and WUXGA resolution (1920× 1200 pixels). It uses Led technology and is especially designed for applications that require reliable operation 24×7, as it is the case of the Karbala mosque.
It is of a video wall of large-format, composed of a large number of screens, the Assembly has been carried out on an infrastructure that moves on a servo motor that facilitates the maintenance.
This video wall has been installed next to an ACT-CommBoard eyevis for automatic tracking of color, solution that is complete with Eyecon V4 software, It allows to control such large-format screens, and videowall netPIX management system 4800.
Eyevis worked on this project with the companies that had been responsible for the installation of the video analysis system, iOmniscient and Al - Moashour Co, pioneer of the technology of information in Iraq.
