eyevis UK, control room video wall and audio visual experts, launched its demonstration venue at the Business First Burnley Business Centre in 2016 so potential customers could see their ground-breaking technology in action.

Managing director Steve Murphy said that more than 300 representatives from a range of sectors, including national and regional government, security, police, transport, facilities management and broadcast had all visited the venue.

He added that it had also hosted a number of open days and catered for growing demand for the Burnley-based company’s products in the North West and across the North of England.

Steve said: “Many of our clients and potential clients are either in the Lancashire and North-West area or can arrive quickly and easily at our front door thanks to the M65 and the motorway network and the superb rail links.

“It makes sense to provide a demonstration venue that gives an easily-accessible destination where people can come and see what we have to offer.

“As well as being directly responsible for £3m. of new business, the venue has also provided a boost for the local economy in terms of the overnight accommodation, food providers and transport that many of our visitors have utilised.”

Among the products at the showcase venue are:

Steve added: “Control rooms and video walls are used in a wide variety of applications, such as traffic control, transportation, energy plants, aerospace, airports, water and sewage plants, public utilities, emergency services and data centres.
