Photo 3 | Before: View of the more than 20 year old diode map. The monitors on the left and right show pictures of Hamburg's streets. The workplaces no longer met the current ergonomic requirements.
Photo 4 | JST control room: After - the same perspective, but a new look: The old diode card was replaced by a dynamic large display wall that flexibly displays computers and camera images at any position and in any number. And the workstations, which are individually and continuously adjustable from standing to sitting height, also meet current ergonomic requirements.

Photo 6 | … for this purpose, a steel construction was erected above the parking area - the employees had to make do with the temporary solution for almost a year.
Photo 7 | First step: disassembly. The old diode map made of wooden panels is removed during the gutting process.
Photo 8 | The preparation phase: The room is prepared for the new installations with cable routes, double floors and suspended ceilings.
Photo 9 | JST Installation: First test run during installation - the cube large display wall is calibrated.
Photo 10 | JST MultiConsoling®: Several MultiCenter control the plant. About 120 computer and camera signals are switched to the large display wall in real time. In addition, these signals can be displayed and operated on 50 multi-console workstations.

Photo 15 | JST Cube large display wall: Due to the platform construction, the front seats are located on the lower room level. This allows the rear seats a free view of the large display wall.
Photo 16 | The workplace displays can be infinitely adjusted to the optimum viewing height using an electric motor via a monitor rail.

Photo 19 | JST large display wall: If necessary, a camera can be switched to several cubes at the click of a mouse - this allows a differentiated assessment of dangerous situations.
Photo 20 | JST inspection room: View of the rear view of the cubes - behind the large display wall a room within the room was created for cooling and maintenance work.
Modernisation of traffic control center at Hamburg police headquarters
Greater safety on Hamburg’s roads and better traffic flow on the routes of the Hanseatic city – two declared goals that will be achieved with the new, ultra-modern traffic control center at the police headquarters in Alsterdorf. With the professional support of the general contractor SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS GmbH and Jungmann Systemtechnik – used as subcontractor of SWARCO – the technical prerequisites were created.
While many European metropolises are threatened by traffic gridlock, Hamburg is taking specific measures to counteract this development. State-of-the-art traffic computers, operating devices and control units for traffic management tasks are supplemented by traffic television systems with a total of 82 cameras, digital radio and traffic warning service.
Whether triggering height control in the Elbe tunnel, collisions on the main access roads or traffic jam reports – the operators in the new Hamburg traffic control center (VLZ) keep a close eye on traffic in the Hanseatic city. On a JST large display wall consisting of 24 LED cubes, VLZ employees zoom directly into the action. “The presentation options and flexible display of information are really the bang,” Gerhard Schulz, responsible for IT operations at VLZ, puts it bluntly.
Traffic control center after modernisation / before modernisation
Whereas in the past, the traffic lights of the Hanseatic city were displayed on a painted map of the city, which was peppered with holes for light-emitting diodes, today, thanks to new technology and camera images that can be switched on and off at will, it is possible to take virtual tours on the large display wall . With JST-MultiConsoling®, employees have the option of displaying any camera image on the individual workstation monitors at any time. “In the past, places had to be changed constantly to complete various tasks,” recalls Gerhard Schulz.
The expert attaches similar importance to the progress made in workplace ergonomics. Height-adjustable JST worktablesand monitors would represent a “true quantum leap” compared to the past. Not least because of the JSTcomputer outsourcing in a special technical room and the associated avoidance of noise and heat sources within the traffic control center, Gerhard Schulz also speaks on behalf of the 21 VLZ employees when he says: “We are all highly satisfied. The result is really excellent and fully meets our requirements”.
