Infraserv Höchst GAMZ required eight state-of-the-art workplaces for their control room operators. They decided to house computer systems in a secure technical room in order to protect and cool them efficiently. An outdated video surveillance system including client computers and a video wall were ready to be replaced. The new solution needed to display approximately 400 IP video cameras on workplace monitors and a big new video wall. This called for a future-proof operating concept. In the past, operators had to use multiple keyboards to perform their essential functions. Going forward, however, everything had to be operated efficiently, comfortably and securely with a single keyboard and mouse per workplace. Additionally, the new concept needed to deploy network infrastructure and technology to fully integrate multiple locations that are distributed throughout the GAMZ building.
