Control Room Information Sharing, Collaboration and Event-Driven Visualization for Networked Displays including Video Walls

Activu Corporation, a pioneer in the development of collaborative visualization software and video wall solutions, announced they will be featuring their solutions for energy and utility control rooms at two industry conferences in May: the MEA Electric Operations Technical & Leadership Summit, May 9-11, 2018 in Springfield, Illinois and OpenForum™ 2018, OSI’s annual worldwide user conference, May 13-16, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The MEA Electric Operations Technical & Leadership Summit offers electric operations training on technical, safety, and workforce issues. OSI OpenForum, OSI’s annual OpenForum conference, is an educational and networking experience specifically designed to empower OSI’s user community with the information to overcome the operational challenges they face.

Activu will be showcasing ActivWare™, the companies enterprise software, which helps energy companies to manage change and share a common operational picture to maintain situational awareness.

Tailored to meet the operational needs of energy companies, ActivWare allows users to share visual information across a network, regardless of the location, on any type of screen, from a control room video wall or workstation to a laptop or mobile device. Grid operators can dynamically display and distribute visual information on control room video walls, on mobile devices, at local sites and in the field. This can include multiple SCADA views, Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), OMS, DMS, data network monitoring systems, CAD drawings, work orders and other visual information. These dynamic visuals, alongside video feeds from security cameras, data from weather monitors and the latest news feeds provide decision makers with a comprehensive common operating picture. As a result, situational awareness, critical decision making and incident response is significantly improved.

Attendees at the show will have an opportunity to learn about ActivWare’s full range of capabilities, including ActivLink®. Created as a way to assist customers with the daunting task of filtering through increasing amounts of information being supplied by control room systems, ActivLink alerts operators to critical events by updating display content in response to user-defined scenarios.
