On the road to safer motorways with Panasonic

Portugal’s largest motorway management company, Brisa, has installed a 40m2 Panasonic video wall into its Operational Control Centre which monitors 1100km of motorway.

A total of 44 Panasonic 55 inch displays (TH-55LV5W) make up the video wall, which helps Brisa manage mobility across 11 motorways and provide an immediate response to unforeseen events and accidents.

"We had a lot of problems with our previous video wall," explains Pedro Sobral, Project Manager at Brisa. "However, the new Panasonic displays look more modern and are more efficient, which maximises the availability of the tools within Brisa’s Operational Control Centre."

The displays, which were integrated by Prosonic, are able to work seamlessly 24 hours a day. They are specifically designed for the control room market, boasting an anti-glare surface and an ultra-thin 5.3mm bezel.

"The new monitoring system means Brisa benefits from exceptional image quality and reduced maintenance costs for its video wall," says João Farinha, Prosonic's Integrated Solutions Division. "The customer feedback has been excellent and Brisa is extremely happy. The Panasonic monitors are even exceeding Brisa’s requirements in terms of image quality,” he added.

The ultra-thin bezel allows Brisa the option to display a single image across various screens, with virtually no discontinuity in the image.
