Customized Advantis NG control consoles: corporate image, functionality and connectivity
Starting from a basic layout that was initially presented with the Advantis Air control console model it was later advanced in collaboration with the project manager of the end customer, Martin Pro ME and GESAB. The final ergonomic design provided a perfect visualization of the videowall composed of 10 x 2 LED cubes of 60 inches where the client pretend to visualize the applications and graphics of collaborative use in the room as well as any critical information.

All these reasons finally led to choose the Advantis New Generation model. Which also offers to the operators a great capacity to organize the wiring and intelligent connection systems in a totally ergonomic space.
On the other hand, the crisis room was proposed with a perfect integration of retractable monitors and great connectivity capacity, thus providing a flexible and functional solution for various types of presentation and at the same time very comfortable.
