Leading rail freight provider Freightliner has used technology supplied by video wall expert Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) for a new National Operations Centre control room at its Birmingham depot.

Freightliner, part of the Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) group, offers a wide range of rail freight solutions to cater for diverse needs, providing safe, reliable and cost-effective rail freight partnerships.

UVS was approached by Freightliner’s consultants Bentley Compton, which was designing and implementing the new control room, which has allowed G&W to streamline its terminal operations, ensuring efficient management of its entire estate from a centralised hub. 

The requirements included:

  • Fast and simple control of the video wall by multiple operators, with a centralised touch panel control
  • The ability to view data from remote sites via web connections
  • The ability to control web applications on the video wall
  • A collaboration facility where visitors can securely share content on the video wall
  • Inputs from local workstations
  • Future proofing for viewing data from workstations at remote sites (via IP encoded signals)
  • The ability to view content of the video wall remotely

Following a site survey within three days of the original enquiry, UVS provided detailed proposals for video wall options. 

The newly-installed video wall comprises 4×2 55-inch LCD displays, with only 3.5mm bezel to bezel dimensions, and uses Lucidity WBC40 video wall controller with a wide range of source inputs, including workstation HDMI, a collaboration device, IP video stream decoding and display, web page data and dynamic message box information. 

Nigel Mann, terminal services director for Freightliner Limited, said: “This innovative approach empowers G&W to maintain its status as the UK’s leading rail freight operator and terminal provider. 

“The National Operations Centre team seamlessly support both internal and external stakeholders as part of an overall solution of mission critical technologies and swift and accurate problem resolution, enabled by the UVS video wall.”

Steve Murphy, managing director of UVS, said: “We are delighted to have been able to help Freightliner with such an important project. Following a detailed evaluation of the proposed technology by key staff based across multiple locations, via a live demonstration on Microsoft Teams, Freightliner were convinced they had chosen the right configuration, technology and partner.”

Award-winning Freightliner is an established rail freight provider with businesses in the UK and Continental Europe. It invests in locomotive technology, wagons and terminal infrastructure to provide the quality of service that surpasses customer expectations.

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 80 years’ combined Audio Visual, Control Room and Visual Solutions experience.
