Barco and LundHalsey announce partnership in the control rooms business
Kortrijk, Belgium, 27 September 2022 – Barco, a world leader in control room visualization and LundHalsey, a global expert in control room furniture solutions, announce they have signed an ecosystems partner agreement for the EMEA region. As such, the two companies will approach the market jointly when possible, offering a complete solution consisting of LundHalsey furniture and Barco’s OpSpace operator workspace software.
With a track record of over 30 years in the control rooms visualization market, Barco needs no introduction. The company is renowned not only for its large video wall solutions (consisting of LCD, LED and rear-projection systems), but also for its video wall controllers, networked visualization system (TransForm N) and its operator workspace software OpSpace. The latter solution allows control room operators to view all relevant sources on a single pixel space (possibly consisting of multiple monitors), controlling it with a single keyboard and mouse. The result is a very natural way of working for operators, improving ergonomics and efficiency.
Stronger together in the control rooms market
LundHalsey, based in the UK, started in 1983 and grew steadily to become the global market leader of control room consoles and solutions. Renowned for innovation, quality and service excellence, the company operates across aviation, broadcast, defense, energy, process control, satellite, security, teleport and transport industries.
“The combination of LundHalsey’s furniture and Barco’s OpSpace is a true 360° control room solution”, says Charles Evett, CEO at LundHalsey. “Both companies are experts in this field, offering products that are truly tailored to the market – and its users. The result excels in ergonomics, efficiency and design.”
“LundHalsey is a great addition to our ecosystems partner network”, adds Chris Klepacz, Strategic Alliances Manager at Barco. “Just like Barco, they value quality and service as top priorities. We very much look forward to approach the market together, and to deploy our first joint projects.”
