At a Glance – To Protect and Serve
Airports play host to arrivals and departures for business or pleasure. Here dreams take off, the average nine-to-fiver takes flight from daily grind, long-separated loved ones come or go for a reunion, and businesspeople get on their way to negotiate or conclude a deal. For their part, airports give priority to getting passengers and cargo around efficiently and keeping a comfortable environment for everyone traveling by air. But even efficiency and comfort must give way to security. Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan’s primary gateway, is no exception.
The Environment – To Detect and Display
Aviation security has emerged a global priority since the terrorist attacks upon the U.S. on September 11, 2001. At Taoyuan International Airport with its two terminals, the Aviation Security Monitoring Centre is called upon to make sure that no contraband find their way onto aircraft. To correctly determine what X-ray scanning has detected, its staff need professional displays capable of presenting images in precise, accurate detail both at checked-in baggage counters and at its control centre that is charged with remote surveillance.
The Opportunity – An Expertly Replacement for CRT
In preceding decades, airports relied exclusively on CRT monitors for displaying the outcome of X-ray inspection. Things have changed in recent years as materials used in making CRT monitors have come to be recognized as an environmental hazard. A new era has thus been ushered in for LCDs. For security personnel at the Aviation Security Monitoring Centre, however, it is no minor challenge to seek out LCDs that can produce reliable image quality while working with other existing systems and devices in perfect compatibility. Given limited space available, some displays need to be installed on walls outside the computer room, a location where heat inevitably poses a headache. As such, a superior capacity for heat dissipation is yet another feature crucial to the ultimate LCD replacement for CRT.
The Solution – Capable and Durable Displays
The RX-W42 and RX-22 are chosen to serve Taoyuan International Airport for good reason. With a capacity for 600 TV lines that afford image quality comparable to the CRT days, they are assigned to work with X-ray scanners at checked-in baggage counters and to be part of the control centre responsible for remote surveillance. Thanks to AG Neovo’s Advanced Image Platform™ (AIP) technology, they can faithfully reproduce contrast, colours and details in the surveillance output.
Built with solid metal casing and NeoV™ Optical Glass, both displays also feature an extraordinary capability to dissipate heat. These strengths go a long way toward enhancing their durability as the displays are called upon to stay on guard and stand up to the toughest requirements of round-the-clock operations.
On top of their compatibility with a full range of existing systems at the airport, the RX-W42 and RX-22 are favoured also for their unique user-friendly features. Flexible viewer options thus accorded—image rotation and freezing as well as PIP/PBP—facilitate surveillance efficiency significantly.
The Result – From Competence to Confidence
Competent displays matter as much as cutting-edge X-ray devices to uphold airport security. While environmental concerns increasingly constrain the use of CRT monitors, premium LCD displays like AG Neovo’s RX-W42 and RX-22 have presented themselves as a fully worthy upgrade with their capacity for rendering high-definition images.
“There’s no understating the clarity and stability of display images for the professionals at the Aviation Security Monitoring Centre charged with baggage check day in and day out,” says Allan Hsu, Sales Manager of AG Neovo Taiwan. “With their consistently precise reproduction of X-ray scanning images, the RX-W42 and RX-22 make a reliable tool in making sure that nothing escapes either X-ray or the human eye.”
At Taoyuan International Airport, the Aviation Security Monitoring Centre planned to replace environmentally harmful CRT monitors with LCD displays. To make sure that no contraband find their way onto aircraft, they were looking for professional LCD displays capable to faithfully reproduce X-ray images.
