Mr Murphy added: “During the last 15 years we have witnessed and been immersed in the increase in digital data sources for control room operations, where more and more operational data is provided via network and web access.

“UVS has been instrumental in managing and catering for this change with the video wall technology we have provided to our clients, which falls outside of standard audio-visual solutions.

“Also, due to this increase in the amount of data available to modern control room operations personnel, managing the video wall content based on the data coming in has also become more important, with automated switching based on certain scenarios.”

Over the next 15 years, Mr Murphy said he expects to see increases in affordability and quality, along with improvements in remote transmission and collaboration technology.

UVS, based in the Burnley First – Burnley Business Centre, provides video wall displays and audio-visual solutions to a range of clients across the UK and the rest of the world.
