“Stay safe” is the global motto. For many people, this means “stay at home”. However, there are still professionals doing their duty at their working locations, including control room operators. For everybody working with a large video wall, we have created this article on how to disinfect their LCD or rear-projection cubes (RPC) visualization canvas.
Although the disinfecting instructions for LCDs and RPCs are quite similar, there are some important differences. That is why we provide the step-by-step instructions for both technologies separately.
The needed equipment, however, is the same for both. This includes:
Please note these instructions were written for Barco video walls, and we do not guarantee the same applies for products of other manufacturers. Also, these cleaning procedures are based best effort, but are not supported by a clinical study. In case of doubt, follow WHO instructions and put material in a 7 days quarantine.
After putting on your latex free cleaning rubber gloves, you’re ready to start disinfecting the wall. Always clean one screen at a time, because the alcohol should not remain on the display surface for too long.
Make sure that no alcohol drips into the connections between two screens. This is the biggest hazard when cleaning your LCD video wall.
Rear-projection cubes use either glass or acrylic screens as a front surface. If you don’t know for sure which material is used for your video wall, don’t worry: the disinfection instructions for both materials are the same.
For rear-projection cubes, we can not enough stress the importance of not touching the edge bonding with the disinfectant.
This is it. We hope these instructions were helpful and will help keep you and your colleagues safe!
