UVS Completes Commonwealth Games Project
5th Jan 19
UVS helped to keep visitors and competitors at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games safe after installing a major video wall system in the city’s purpose-built CCTV control centre.
The project was completed with integration partners SSUK, who installed the equipment.
The UVS video wall system, which is still running six years later, comprised 85 x 55-inch industrial LCD displays in a range of different video wall configurations and 11 x video wall controllers, which show live streams from 440 CCTV cameras around Glasgow city centre.
They are housed in the multi-million pound Glasgow Operations Centre (GOC), which was used to protect athletes and visitors at the opening ceremony and throughout the Games.
The operations centre scheme pooled the use of community safety and traffic cameras throughout the city for the first time, providing controllers with access to the entire network of live and recorded CCTV footage.
UVS managing director Steve Murphy said the work highlighted how valuable video wall technology is in helping to keep people safe and providing instant updates and information to control room staff.
He said: “The centre monitors hundreds of CCTV camera images and other important data to provide real time information to the operations personnel, allowing the planning of quicker corrective actions.
“Multiple display angles, task sharing and intelligent display solutions with control features such as alarm management all lead to shorter response times and fast troubleshooting in emergency situations.

Used on a management level they can also help to provide vast amounts of precise data and information at a glance, which helps in making quick and efficient decisions.
