The Traffic Control Center of the Kumamoto Prefectural Police Headquarters
The Traffic Control Center condenses the traffic conditions of the entire Kumamoto prefecture into a single dimension, to enable constant comprehension and control, in order to provide the prefectural residents with a safe and comfortable traffic environment.
Two Multi-Screen Systems are installed in the Traffic Control Center
The Traffic Control Center of the Kumamoto Prefectural Police Headquarters condenses, monitors, and controls the ever-changing traffic conditions within the prefecture. The room has a high, vaulted ceiling, and a wall-mounted mosaic panel device was previously used. Since it became time to renew the display, it was decided to switch to a display that would use a laser-light projector. The two Multi-Screen Systems were configured with Panasonic PT-RZ670 1-Chip DLP™ Laser Projectors with ET-DLE055 Zoom Lens, twenty 72-inch displays, and four 65-inch isplays.
Long-Life 1-Chip DLP™ Laser Projectors
Since the two Multi-Screen Systems operate 24 hours a day, all day and all night, they are set to a mode that will allow approximately 10 years of operation. By using DLP™ Laser Projectors, maintenance work is reduced, which is also expected to help reduce running costs over the long-term. The system is operated in "Long-Life 3" mode, which produces the lowest level of brightness, providing ample display clarity even in a brightly lit room. The wide viewing angle also allows crisp, clear visibility of various information even from the edges of the room.
Various image sources are easily displayed
Simple operation enables a variety of image data to be displayed on the installed systems. For example, during events, such as marathons, or natural disasters, such as earthquakes, images from helicopters and other related information sources can be simultaneously displayed in addition to the usual displays. This allows traffic conditions to be grasped quickly and precisely from a variety of angles. On the one hand, the system has the ability to instantly display diverse information, while also remaining easy to operate and configure. It is designed so that, in the event of an emergency, people other that technical specialists, such as ordinary staff and police officers, can use it.
Information can be shared by connecting to the building's network
Together with upgrading the equipment by means of this renewal, the display systems were also connected to the building's network. As a result, the traffic conditions displayed at the Traffic Control Center can also be viewed on personal computers and other devices throughout the building. This enables information to be relayed more smoothly.
