VISIT The new G-Wall at Oslo Central Station T


he largest optically enhanced LCD video wall in Europe has been installed by GDS in


Oslo Central Station, the most crowded railway station in Norway.


The result is impressive. The brand new G-Wall installed in Oslo covers an area of nearly 60 square meters and the difference with the old one, with old fl uorescent tubes installed in 1999, is amazing.


The new video wall is made of 100 pieces of 46” LCD TFT bonded displays operating as one single unit. The narrow bezel between the screens guarantees a seamless view from the long distance and fast reading without interruptions. Moreover the new digital information board allows Jernbaneverket (JBV, the Norwegian National Rail Administration) to adapt the content depending on the situation very easily.


JBV asked GDS to deliver the best-in- class video wall for railways able to give its passengers clear and complete information and to maintain its quality for many years

The largest optically enhanced videowall in Europe


Roxana Prange, operations and marketing coordinator at BF Technology Ltd, part of GDS group, describes the company’s recent installation in Oslo.


considering the constraints of such a large format.


Geir Hagen, engineering manager telecom at JBV, said: “The performances of the video wall installed in September 2011 in National Theatre railway station in Oslo (25 pieces of 46” LCDs) proved that G-Wall has been a very good choice and that’s why we decided to proceed with GDS as a partner for this challenging installation.


“Image quality, safety, serviceability of the product are crucial points, but of course long-term support and reliability are factors that we need to take into consideration when choosing a supplier.”


The G-Bond lamination process applied to the screen gives the content more contrast and makes it more readable in high ambient light conditions.


Competence in bogie testing In


the past decade Nencki Ltd of Switzerland has reached a leading position as a


supplier of bogie test stands. Over 70 machines have been delivered up to today. Nencki’s aim is to provide customers with the specifi c test bench for their needs.

The bonding technology makes sure that glass is retained in case of breakage.


The thermal management of the video wall has been designed to overcome the challenges of such a large system and it is able to manage the thermal micro-environment that it creates and to avoid ‘railway dust’ becoming a problem with the ageing.

How it used to look


Walter Kellenberger, sales director for railway technology at Nencki Ltd, explains what it will be showcasing at InnoTrans 2012.


• The NBT Coach; the bestseller for two-axle bogies, mainly used by bogie manufacturers, high-speed and normal-speed railways as well as urban transport, metro and tram workshops. The modular system can be equipped with up to 30 different test functions. This is the newest product that Nencki will present at InnoTrans. • This year Nencki at booth no 124 in hall 23, the Nencki Bogie Test Stand, the company will showcase NBT Basic – a test rig that offers basic test functions such as wheel loads, calculation of shim plates etc. on two- and three-axle bogies. The machine is equipped with the new D.O.W load cells.

• New in the range is the NBT Light; a very economic test bench, for small workshops with a small number of different bogie types and a limited requirement of testing features.


Since February 2012, the DIN standard 25043- 7 for the testing of bogies has been in effect. On the Nencki booth, visitors can get information about the main points of this standard and the new functions that will be necessary on bogie test stands.
