Case Study: Display Solutions creates a unique communication and presentation video wall at the RAC

With high demands on its breakdown rescue service, the RAC has upgraded its two control centres with the introduction of a unique digital signage solution, a video wall dashboard consisting of 38 LCD screens and two video walls.

Measuring 2.9 x 3.01m in size, the first video wall uses 15 46” full HD ultra-thin bezel backlit LCD display screens whilst the second is made up of 3 55” displays covering 1.2m x 2.0m.

The walls are driven by 46 Shuttle DS61 embedded PCs supplied by Display Solutions.

The RAC required a system solution that could display live call statistics, news, weather and travel RSS feeds, videos, member and RAC corporate information as well as team specific content. In need of a quality digital signage communication platform that could be delivered in a fast turnaround time, Sabercom turned to long term and trusted partner Display Solutions.

Display Solutions supplied Sabercom with Shuttle's DS61, a slim, but powerful x86-based digital signage platform that offers top quality, performance and connectivity to meet the required needs. With its robust metal chassis and wide operating temperature range, the DS61 is an industrial-grade signage platform with dual display support, and designed for long-term, smooth and reliable operation to help guarantee the video wall’s 24/7 operation.

“The complete installation was delivered on time and within budget as a result of Sabercom’s and Display Solutions’ rapid turnaround time and hard work put into the project,” concludes Chris Balmforth, Property & Facilities Manager at the RAC. “We are extremely pleased with our unique digital signage solution and are certain it will help to further improve our customer service levels to meet the needs of our ever growing customer base.”
