Trustwave Conducts Cybersecurity Training and Simulation with MediaWall Video Wall Processor

Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center

Ensuring cybersecurity is a key objective for organizations worldwide. In the relentless fight against cyber attacks and hacking, Trustwave, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, is at the forefront. Its state-of-the-art cybersecurity SpiderLabs Fusion Center monitors, detects, and eliminates threats inside client organizations.

Adjacent to Trustwave’s SpiderLabs Fusion Center is a large presentation room used to conduct cybersecurity training and simulation for CIOs, CISOs, security analysts and IT personnel. Participants learn cutting-edge techniques for discovering threats and defending networks. Clients and trainees partake in real-world threat simulation exercises with realistic virtual cyber environments. Additionally, the room hosts forums to deal with the evolving threat landscape.

For maximum visual impact, Titan Electric, an audio-visual integrator in Chicago, equipped the presentation room with a large video wall powered by RGB Spectrum’s MediaWall® V 4K video wall processor. Steve Thomas, Lead Design Engineer and Project Manager with Titan Electric, selected the MediaWall V processor to provide advanced display capabilities, including exceptional 4K image quality for presenting detailed visuals in real-time, with no dropped frames or tearing.

The MediaWall V processor offers maximum operational security. Its embedded architecture resists hacking and tampering, protects against intrusion by malware, and avoids the vulnerabilities of PC-based systems.

The processor’s inputs include SpiderLabs Fusion Center workstations, local PCs, media servers, local, national and global weather and news broadcasts, and social media. The processor consolidates these various sources and displays them in windows of any size, anywhere on the 3 x 3 video wall array. Trainers can switch input sources and choose from up to 60 customizable, preset display layouts. Integrated switching eliminates the need for additional signal switchers. Advanced display capabilities include overlapping images, window borders and titles, and pan and zoom to view items of particular interest.

To connect the MediaWall V processor to the video wall, Titan Electric installed RGB Spectrum’s CAT-Linx 2 HDBaseT extenders. These transmit signals of up to 4K resolution over conventional CAT 5e/6 cable. A CAT-Linx 2 extender pair needs only one power supply connected to either the transmitter or the receiver end to power both devices. Advanced features include HDCP 2.2, Dolby and DTS HD audio support, as well as serial and IR control of display devices.

Offering superior 4K image quality, 24/7 reliability, secure operation, and feature-rich capabilities, RGB Spectrum’s MediaWall V display processor and CAT-Linx 2 4K HDBaseT extenders are ideal for large scale presentation. They are a preferred solution for operations centers, auditoriums, and digital signage applications.
