  • Gain overview and reaction time by defining suitable screen layouts according to task priorities
  • Image comparison (e.g. quality) within one screen

Live events

Tasks:

  • Live signal of the event as full image on a big LED screen in the arena, updated ranking chart displayed as small PiP
  • Only 1 big LED screen to simultaneously show 2 different video sources (event video + chart)
  • Selection of the camera with the best capturing quality

  • Synchronous recording of 4 computer signals and/or camera
  • Save recording capacity by merging video signals

Used in Fire fighter vehicle

Tasks:

  • V-Switch quad in Quad mode
  • 4 computers/cameras on 1 display,
  • Only 1 mouse and hotmouse functions for operation (no keyboard used)

Results:

  • V-Switch quad XP to display up to 4 cameras in real time for center of epilepsy monitoring

Results:

  • Up to 4 different signals can be monitored on one screen – save equipment
  • Time synchronous display of different information (e.g. EEG, vital functions, video, history file)

Used in industrial production and automation

Tasks:

  • V-Switch quad in Quad mode for Quality Control
  • V-Switch quad in Dual mode for Target-Performance Comparison
  • 4 cameras on 1 display, e.g. showing production process from different angles in parallel
  • Keyboard and mouse are used to access the computers and the cameras, e.g. to zoom in/out

Results:
