Photo 1 | JST control room: View from the lounge into the new control center of Göttinger Verkehrsbetriebe with a visual centerpiece – the employees not only have a direct view of the applications on the large display wall, but they also have the route map of Göttingen directly in front of them.
Photo 2 | JST control room: A perfect coordination of technology and design - the colours of the lighting - shown here in blue - on the Stratos X11 OperatorDesk and on the DisplayWall can be freely and intuitively selected.
Photo 3 | JST control center installation: The operator workstations and large display walls are planned and installed precisely in terms of visual distances and viewing angles.
Photo 4 | JST ergonomics: Parabolically arranged screens allow the operator an ergonomic viewing angle of the monitors.
Photo 5 | JST operator desk: By means of a smoothly adjustable electric motor height adjustment, the special Stratos X11 CommandDesks can be adapted to the operator's individual needs; for example, switching between sitting and standing to relieve back strain.
Photo 6 | JST control desks: Whether from the front or the back, the Stratos X11 OperatorDesk gives a clean and tidy impression at all times, without visible technology or cables. …
Photo 7 | ... Behind the access panels are spacious, illuminated supply areas that offer sufficient space for technology and large quantities of cables, thus creating a flawless impression in the control room.
Photo 8 | JST control desk: This means that the environment of the operator workstation can always be kept clear and tidy – even extensive technical installations can be accommodated in the Stratos X11's supply areas – such as the MultiConsoling® receivers and the command boxes here. A special feature that standard work tables do not offer.
Photo 9 | JST ControlRoom Automation: The CommandPad – directly integrated into the tabletop of the OperatorDesks – is connected to the CommandBox in the supply area of the OperatorDesk. The buttons enable the desired scenarios to be displayed on the monitors at the workplace and on the large display screen at the touch of a button. Lights, blinds, door openers etc. can also optionally be controlled.
Photo 10 | JST Power Port Data Box: The operator consoles have been equipped with Power-Port-Data-Boxes, so that the users can easily access the desired supply connections directly at their workstations.
Photo 11 | JST monitor swivel arms: The workstation monitors are attached to the OperatorDesks with height-adjustable 3D swivel arms...
Photo 12 | ... They allow optimal and customisable viewing angles and viewing distances on the displays at the operator's workstation.
Photo 13 | JST large-display technology: The large-format displays from JST with perfect illumination through energy-saving LED backlighting and high pixel resolution are optimised for 24/7 use without exception. Special advantage: The ultra-narrow frames enable the presentation of an application on several displays simultaneously.
Photo 14 | JST QuickOut mounting system: The QuickOut mounting system offers perfect service accessibility - even for displays located in the middle of a Videowall.
Photo 15 | JST large display screen: A successful solution both visually and technically: The JST DisplaySuit with brushed aluminium surfaces forms the basis for the proven QuickOut mounting system.
Photo 16 | JST monitor wall: Viewing angle from below behind the JST large display wall. All technical installations are easily accessible. By applying light pressure to the outer edges of the display, each individual display slides forward (quick-out) to provide access to rear connections and technical components for inspection.
Photo 17 | JST technology: large-display technology as a silent film? Those days are long gone. The Audio Line Mixer ensures that the image sources visible on the monitor wall are connected to the corresponding audio track.
Photo 18 | JST large display screen: The design strips with high-quality aluminium brushed surfaces and the AlarmLight give the large display screen the unmistakable JST look.
Photo 20 | JST MultiConsoling®: The photo shows the user interface of the myGUI software with which the JST MultiConsoling® is controlled. Among the many advantages of this technology is the fact that any computer can be accessed from any workstation.
Photo 21 | JST technology: The myGUI controller, which serves as a host for the myGUI software, was relocated to a separate technical room – just like other hardware components – in order to improve the indoor climate and reduce noise emissions.

New control center for traffic monitoring with monitor wall and flexible control
Rush hour traffic in the city. The streets are full and commuters gather at the local transport stops. If a bus breaks down now, it will be difficult. In case of breakdowns or delays, everything depends on the control center in the university town of Göttingen. There, ideal technical conditions for traffic monitoring have now been created in favour of reaction time. With products made by JST, the employees of the Göttinger Verkehrsbetriebe GmbH are able to maintain an overview.
“We are responsible for ensuring that everything goes according to plan,” sums up Project Manager Ricardo Mecke. The traffic master, who is part of the ten-man team of employees at the Göttingen control center, knows exactly which requirements have to be met in order to form a perfect basis for the operators’ work.
Curious about solutions from control room professionals
He therefore went online to find a partner for the control center as part of an extensive modernisation project. During their research, he and his colleagues from traffic monitoring came across JST. “At first we thought that this was just too big for us, but the numerous informative references convinced us. So we wanted to have a look,” recalls Ricardo Mecke, who was particularly interested in the ergonomic advantages of the JST furniture.
"We wanted the amazing technology"
All initial doubts went away as soon as the Göttingen traffic specialists visited JST’s control room simulator. A journey that has paid off. Ricardo Mecke: “We were all quite excited there and were pleasantly surprised by what is possible in terms of price.” The decision was taken during a workshop and a precise analysis to do more than just optimise the furniture. “We also wanted the amazing technology,” says the project manager.
Optimal basis for proactive traffic management
Nowadays, the staff in the Göttingen control center are supported by both a proactive monitor wall, which is also ideally suited for BigPicture displays thanks to its LCD displays with ultra-narrow frames, and the flexible control technology provided by JST-MultiConsoling®. The best conditions for achieving the goal of traffic master Mecke: “We want to be able to intervene in the event of delays or the provision of replacement vehicles before the passenger even notices anything.”
Employees feel the positive effects daily
However, it is not only the customers of the transport companies who benefit from the modernisation; the employees also feel the positive effects every day: Ergonomic furniture with height-adjustable operator desks is just one of the benefits. Even emissions from heat and noise are a thing of the past. Thanks to JST MultiConsoling®, it was possible to move all the technology into a separate room.
Praise for the professional collaboration
In retrospect, there was a lot of praise from traffic master Ricardo Mecke. His assessment of the collaboration with the control room experts from JST: “I have never worked with someone so professional before. From the first meeting to the installation, everything went perfectly.”
