Smart Display for Shipping and ALL Industries
The Visibility Problem
Due to the increasing number of cameras that are being installed onto ships, cranes and drilling platforms, the need has arisen to display multiple camera images simultaneously. We regularly receive remarks from end users that a camera system in combination with various monitors takes up too much space. They also find that operating the camera’s various functions becomes extremely confusing. We have concluded that there is a definite need for a system providing a clear image and a well-ordered operating system on one monitor.
The Orlaco Solution
The Smart Display offers in combination with the Orlaco cameras a perfect visibility solution. This ‘smart’ solution ensures optimal use of one single monitor. The camera and pan & tilt functions can be operated via a mouse pad (wireless), tracker ball or touch screen. The advantages of the Smart Display are the user friendly operating functions, the efficient use of space and the fact that the PC can be used for various purposes. The Smart Display can be used on an existing computer with a monitor.
Why use an Orlaco Solution?
The Brise tanker, belonging to Chemgas Shipping had in the past a number of fixed cameras installed on board as well as a couple on monitors on the bridge. The Brise now makes use of zoom cameras in combination with the Smart Display. Mr. Ed van Zwieten from the Brise comments on his experiences:
“Safety is of the utmost of importance to us, as we transport liquid gas. The Chemgas shipping company has in my opinion made an excellent choice with the installation of the Orlaco products. Not only has overall safety been improved, the systems are also efficient and easy to use. On board we use the existing PC and only one monitor.
I am able to operate everything that I need to via the keyboard and mouse pad. I am also very enthusiastic about the Orlaco cameras".
"The Brise now has zoom cameras on board which provide a sharp and crystal clear image, even during bad weather or poor lighting conditions. The images are even clearly visible in the bright shining lights when we pass through locks".
"I can honestly say that we have experienced no problems whilst using the Smart Display and cameras. On the contrary, I fully recommend the Orlaco products and advise all shipping companies and captains to choose for this “SMART” solution!”
