Munich, 5 September 2019 – NEC Display Solutions Europe has signed an agreement with Saudi Telecom Company (STC) to install a 256 square metre, 1.5 mm pixel pitch dvLED display, one of the world’s largest LED control room displays, within their main Network Operating Centre. In addition, the agreement includes installation of 200 video wall displays and smaller LED screens in their SOC at the Unified Network Operation Centre (UNOC) at the STC campus in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
NEC’s comprehensive involvement in the project includes design, manufacture, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the vast video wall.
