Our video wall technology is helping energy management company Businesswise Solutions control energy consumption, eliminate energy waste and prevent disruption for industrial and commercial clients.
The video wall which we installed at the firm’s headquarters, The Energy Centre, enables analysts to view multiple data feeds relating to clients’ energy.
It also helps them to keep track of alerts created when energy consumption is unusually high or low, which could be an early indicator of a potential fault on site.
Businesswise Solutions asked us to provide a number of functions, including the simultaneous display of:
- Multiple web pages
- Data from remote workstations
- Data from wirelessly connected workstations/laptops
- RSS feeds
- Dynamic message boxes
- Live TV feeds
It was also important that the control of the video wall content was extremely simple, with templates available to create multiple pre-set layouts to suit specific visitors or incident scenarios.
After a consultation and live demonstration of the required functionality at our HQ demo room, we installed a 2×2 video wall using Philips 49-inch 24/7 industrial displays, with only 3.5mm combined bezel to bezel measurement.
The system utilises a UVS WBC10 video wall controller, with 2xHDMI inputs added, providing the required control functionality and features.
The planning, installation and implementation of the system was successfully carried out during the pandemic period, working strictly to all government and health and safety regulations and guidelines.
Businesswise Solutions, based at Lomeshaye Industrial Estate, Nelson, is part of the Inspired Energy PLC group. It uses in-house developed energy software solutions and expert advice to take control of clients’ energy and provide businesses with complete visibility of costs and consumption, identifying and eliminating waste.
Andrew Bardsley, Head of Energy Management at Businesswise Solutions, said: “Our clients expect us to be on top of their energy consumption, if something has gone wrong, or is about to, we have the ability to alert them to it so they can find and fix the problem before it causes disruption.
“The video wall solution is key component of us being able to identify, visualise and optimise the way our clients see energy within their business.
“The energy analysts that are using the platform benefit from the ‘always on’ display, which helps to free up some valuable screen space whilst still being able to keep track of the alerts being generated by our system.”
Businesswise Solutions Chief Marketing Officer, Paul Scarborough, who managed the project, said: “We had an idea of what we wanted, and when we saw the demo suite at UVS HQ we knew immediately that they would end up being our preferred partner.
