Extron Quantum powers CAT Telecom ops center

Quantum Elite video wall processor from Extron

Anaheim, California  – CAT Telecom is the state enterprise responsible for Thailand’s international telecommunications infrastructure. Their Bangkok Network Operations Center, NOC, recently underwent an AV upgrade that included replacement of a ten-year-old videowall system with a system built around Extron’s Quantum Elite videowall processor. CAT recognized that its legacy, non-HDMI videowall hampered productivity because detailed graphics and network maps critical to operator decisions were dimly displayed in low resolution. System integrator Siam Alliance Co. Ltd., Bangkok, designed and installed a new videowall system using video processing and control systems from Extron. The new videowall is an 8×7 array of 55″ LCD flat panel displays driven by the Quantum Elite using HDMI, DVI, or VGA sources. Quantum Elite’s dedicated video/graphics bus provides the processing bandwidth required to deliver high performance video scaling that preserves image quality at full frame rates, producing the detail essential to efficient NOC workflow. Quantum Elite supports the NOC’s 24/7 reliability requirements with redundant hot swappable power supplies, fans, and solid-state storage. Preconfigured window layouts, called up using selectable presets, ensure visual data is consistently displayed at the correct locations on the videowall. Operators know exactly where to look for the information they need.

“The high-resolution images provided by the new videowall system allow operators to clearly display detailed information, such as network maps, that were nearly unreadable with the old system,” says Chukiat Marutharalerd, Project Sales at Siam Alliance, Co. Ltd. “The much-improved readability resulted in a noticeable boost to NOC operator productivity.”

Siam Alliance used Extron’s free GUI designer software to create graphical user interfaces tailored to CAT’s specifications that allowed the videowall system to be controlled using Extron TouchLink touchpanels or Wi-Fi connected iPad tablets. Extron XTP signal transmission products connect video signals from content sources to the Quantum Elite videowall processor and from the processor to the videowall flat panel displays over twisted pair cable runs that can extend up to 330 feet (100 meters). The new videowall system is a vital tool that helps the CAT Network Operations Center ensure that Thailand’s telecommunications traffic keeps flowing smoothly around the clock.
