OPERATIONAL COMMAND CENTRES
If you are an ardent Sci-Fi fan, then you would probably have an idea about how Captain James T Kirk manages the insanely large USS Enterprise Starship from his bridge or in other words, the ‘control room’. Apart from ‘bridge’ other synonyms for ‘Control Rooms’ include control centre, command centre, command post, HQ, hub and a few others, all of which objectively point to a physical location where everything that happens is monitored and ‘controlled’ based on decisions that are made by an authorised individual.
The Control Room Factor
For instance, if the USS Enterprise had a nasty run-in with hostile aliens and in the ensuing conflict and confusion, Captain Kirk was kidnapped by these aliens, you may be rest assured that all the Star Trek fans on earth would vote for Mr Spock to stand in for Captain Kirk in its control room.
The point being made here is that control rooms for any projects or events need to have not just the right kind of equipment to ensure that everything runs smoothly, they also need to have the right kind of individuals who understand the mechanics of the control room well enough to make timely and informed decisions which is a critical success factor for just about any given project or event.
As for the control room itself, the most vital components within the infrastructure of the control room includes visuals, communication, conducive environment, control apparatus user friendliness and last (but not least) security.
VISUALS & COMMUNICATION
Any control room that does not have visuals or adequate visuals is akin to a blind man driving a bus during rush hour!
These command centres are all about being able to make decisions if the need arises based on what they see and thus having proper screens installed for displaying live video feeds from an area that is being monitored, or for projecting a presentation to the personnel within that room as a debrief or even for presenting still images in the due course of project planning, visuals are integral to control rooms.
Most highly functional control rooms nowadays are usually fitted with HD (High Definition) screens that are backed by a led control system.
These led systems supporting the HD Led Display Monitors/ Screens have become immensely popular for control rooms mainly due to their robustness and easy installation .
Coupled with an adequate audio communication framework, the primary components of the control room could be deemed as being in place.
CONTROL ROOM …
The effectiveness and efficiency of the control room in general is as dependent on the quality of the equipment in it as much as it is dependent on the competency of the personnel operating it.
Keeping control rooms ‘compact’ is a strategic factor as it allows those in charge to keep an eye on their subordinates without much effort.
However, keeping control rooms compact and at the same time having to provide space for a variety of equipment such as screens, electrical control systems, audio equipment, computers and furniture could prove to be a challenge.
Having led monitors/ screens placed on desks often creates a feeling of being in a cluttered environment for those inside the control room.
This could potentially have a negative influence or reduce their mental capacity when the situation inside the control room moves into ‘high gear’.
One feasible solution to the issue of space especially pertaining to bulky screens scattered on desks all over the room is to mount led display screens on the walls.
These ‘wall mountable’ led display screens come in a wide range of resolution options with pitch sizes that range anywhere from a pitch of 0.9 mm to a pitch of 1.5mm.
Choosing the right screen size and resolution for the walls of the control room in turn depends on the size of the room itself and the distance between the position of the viewers and the wall where the led display screens are to be mounted.
What needs to be remembered at this point is that, the smaller the pitch, the higher the resolution.
Screens that are interactive (touch screen capable) would certainly be an added plus point as the higher the level of interactivity between the personnel and equipment within the room, the higher the overall functionality of the control room.
A control room is a place where important subjects are discussed, decisions are made and critical activities are monitored.
These three elements which are common inside control rooms require personnel who are competent.
Personnel competency within the context of a control room is usually not just about their understanding of the subject matter, but also their competency in using the gadgetry within the room, thus making sure that each and every individual within a control room is trained to handle the systems is another critical area that should not be overlooked or neglected.
Control rooms that are mobile and often moved and reassembled in other locations could involve a change in the width or length of the room which would impact the positioning of the LED system and in the event that the personnel that operate the control room are unaware of the fact that a LED display screen that has a pitch of 1.5mm would lose its visual quality if viewers were standing any closer than 12 feet could compromise the overall quality of the control room which in turn would reduce the level of functionality for the room.
CONTROL ROOM MAINTENANCE
Keeping the control room clean, ventilated and coordinated is just one aspect of maintaining a highly functional control room.
Other aspects of control rooms that are often overlooked include having backup or ancillary power sources that would keep the room operational for hours in the event that there is a blackout or power outage.
Apart from that ensuring that all the equipment and gadgetry have replacement units on hand is also vital towards ensuring that the control room stays in control.
Being unprepared is not an option for control rooms as we never know when Captain Kirk will escape from his alien captors and gives the command “Beam me up Scotty”!
Small pitch 0.9 – 1.9
This type of content delivers a High Definition quality which allows a better experience for the eyes and the emotions.
In fact, High definition proposes an ultra-thin finish and it is a perfect embodiment of the new generation of ultra-high definition LED display technology. The more the pitches are close the more the resolution and so the quality will be important and enjoyable.
Small pitch – back view
The small pitch is also very thin and easy to put on walls and floors indoors or outdoors
Right safety catch for more security between the LED

- Gray scale (Bit): 13-16
- Viewing Angle (H/V) : 160″/160″
- Indoor use
