Barco’s MegaCADWall improves decision-making at Kuwait Oil Company

1 min de lecture

High resolution, extensive collaboration features, and the largest display surface: these were the requirements the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) laid down for its upgraded 3D Visual Reality Center. Its technology partner, Schlumberger Information Solutions, suggested installing a MegaCADWall consisting of six Galaxy NW-12 projectors, a giant superflat 7.2 m x 3m glass screen (among the largest in the oil market today) and an XDS-1000 display management system. The solution exceeds the client’s expectations.


KOC has always been an early adopter of new technologies. In 2003, Schlumberger Information Solution implemented a 3D Visual Reality Center for KOC that featured an 8 by 2.3 meter curved Barco rear-projection video wall - the most advanced technology on the market at the time. When a major upgrade was needed to visualize the level of detail KOC needed, Barco again proved to be the best choice.

Everyone confirms that the resolution ensured by the MegaCADWall collaborative display system is amazing, allowing the users to see even the smallest details and the best quality 3D images. Other key benefits include the low noise levels and the advanced cooling. On top of that, the superflat screen leaves more room in the center for chairs and to comfortably move around the room.

Besides these aspects, the entire team mainly praises the solution’s outstanding collaborative features and ease-of-use. “Our teams can now collaborate better, thus helping them achieve a complete understanding of complex data to successfully plan projects. This improves the efficiency, quality and speed of our decision-making processes,” concluded KOC’s Senior Systems Analyst, Saleh Al-Mutairi.
