Video wall and visual display experts Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) have developed a unique alarm system that alerts clients to on-screen colour changes. The system, which operates within UVS’ Lucidity video wall controller and control software, was developed following a request from a major financial institution based in New York. Once installed, it will be used to alert staff to major downturns in financial and shares markets, when stocks or currencies starts to be displayed as red rather than green.
But the alert system can also be used in any control room where on-screen colour changes represent major fluctuations, such as power stations or traffic monitoring centres. Staff can set pre-set alarm points on the video wall screen and are alerted by a visual and audio alarm. UVS Managing Director Steve Murphy said: “The client has requested that our Lucidity video wall solution provides an audible and visual alarm on the video wall to indicate that, for example, an alarm window has changed from green to red state showing a severe currency change.”
Lucidity control software
UVS develops its Lucidity video wall controller solution based on requests that clients are keen to utilise"
“But this system can also be used in a process control application or in any control room where display colour changes are significant. We are now adding this feature as an option to the standard Lucidity control software or as a standard feature within our specially priced ‘Pro’ version.” UVS launched its Lucidity brand of video wall controller and control software to fill a gap in the market for projects which do not require the full functionality of high end solutions.
Steve Murphy added: “UVS continues to develop its Lucidity video wall controller solution to suit specific requests, we are finding that clients have been very keen to utilise our ability to take a request or requirement and develop a solution quickly within Lucidity.” The Lucidity brand is aimed at clients who require a solution where full command and control components are not needed. The range is available from UVS to AV system integrators for resale to their end clients. It is not designed to compete with existing high end, full enterprise functionality video wall solutions, which the company continues to promote and supply.
Audio visual solutions
UVS, formerly eyevis UK, is based at Business First Burnley Business Centre and provides video wall displays and audio visual solutions to a range of clients across the UK. It is led by four senior colleagues who, between them, have more than 70 years’ combined Audio Visual, Control Room and Visual Solutions experience. It has also opened a new London demonstration venue at Woburn Place, a short walk from Euston Station, to cope with increased demand for its technology. Eyevis UK changed its name to Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) last September following the acquisition of eyevis GmbH by the Leyard group.
The rebranding has allowed the company to offer an expanded range of products and services and remain at the forefront of providing turnkey solutions for all types of audio visual and visual display applications
