A strategic partnership formed between Burnley video wall technology experts Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) and mobility solutions company Dynniq, has secured its first major control room project win.

The partnership was formed to offer a turnkey solution for a traffic control room incorporating a UVS video wall solution with Dynniq’s Urban Traffic Management Control system, ImCity.

ImCity is a cloud-based platform that has been designed to offer a flexible and open integration solution, enabling many different roadside assets, such as CCTV cameras, to be combined into a single Graphical User Interface.

ImCity will be displayed using a UVS Lucidity video wall system in which a controller is configured to decode and display over 110 HD resolution IP streams collected from traffic cameras and multiple HDMI encoded data sources.

This enables local authorities to effectively control various roadside assets from one integrated free-standing LCD video wall display, ensuring enhanced road safety and improved traffic flow without the need for significant infrastructure changes. The control of the video wall layouts is provided within ImCity via a desk mounted touch screen controller.

Steve Murphy, Managing Director of UVS, said: “The project was won after an extremely intensive tender process during the heart of the Covid pandemic, when Dynniq and UVS combined to provide a comprehensive tender response.

“We also jointly ‘raised the bar’ in providing remote, online live demonstrations of our integrated solution and providing compliance to the technical specifications which convinced the client that we had the right solution.

“We have been very impressed with both the Dynniq offering/solution and as importantly the people within the Dynniq organisation and their wealth of experience.”

Tony O’Brien, Managing Director of Dynniq, said: “We are excited to be working with UVS on this project to fully integrate a 5m wide video wall display for an enhanced management experience for network operators using the new ImCity platform.”

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. It is led by four senior colleagues who, between them, have more than 70 years’ combined Audio Visual, Control Room and Visual Solutions experience.
