SolarWall integrated Into Fishing Vessel
Seada were commissioned to provide a highly active fishing trawler with a SolarWall unit to allow the crew to access multiple outputs due to the large use of their sonar system. The Serene fishing trawler is a 82m Pelagic Trawler, which often targets fish that live in the upper water column of the ocean.
With help from Seada’s Solarwall Video Wall Controller, this fishing boat was able to control the control screens throughout its deck. The unit comprised of 24 DVI inputs, 4 VGA inputs and 22 outputs with HDBaseT and 4K for its control room and control screens for the individual user desks. These SolarWall controllers are able to output 8 windows onto a 4K or HD display simultaneously and are able to offer a system with 4K graphics outputs up to 36 and video capture up to 128 HD or 36 4K inputs within one chassis.
They also used HDBaseT video wall technology to offer 4K, long distance transmission, without video compression to ensure there was no loss of quality. The Extenders support bi-directional IR and RS232 signals for control applications as well as an ethernet port for LAN serving. Seadas HDBaseT units were attractive for this sort of project due to the 100m distance of transmission which meant the SolarWall unit could be securely stored out of the way and the trawler was able to have many monitors and pieces of equipment spaced apart for a less compact working environment.
