When a picture is worth a thousand lives


Whether developing long-term strategies or devising emergency responses to disasters, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) relies on accurate information clearly presented on a dnp Supernova XL Screen solution.

Critical situations

When Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Super Typhoon Yolanda) struck the Philippines in 2013, PRC immediately mobilized its manpower, starting with the Board, to assess the situation and come up with the most efficient and quickest solutions. In order to respond to disasters of such magnitude, PRC needed access to correct information, presented with real clarity through a high-quality audiovisual (AV) installation. The challenge was to find an affordable solution that gave the visual quality necessary to make such important decisions.

Time for an upgrade

The Board, increasingly dissatisfied with its AV display, called in Fil-Nippon Technology Supply, dnp’s Partner in the Philippines, for technical advice. Fil-Nippon Technology Supply provided a complete

service, including the loan of a demonstration screen for extended testing. Technicians at dnp headquarters were also on call in case the Board needed their expertise in operating the device.

Contrast and brightness

The Philippine Red Cross eventually selected an optical frontprojection dnp Supernova XL (130”) Screen with near “flat-screen” optical quality. Offering up to seven times the contrast and double the brightness of a standard front-projection screen, the dnp Supernova XL Screen was more than capable of satisfying the Board members exacting demands, even in their brightly lit boardroom.

Zero complaints!

In-house AV engineer Mark Abeleda, who uses number of complaints as his performance benchmark, said, “With their old AV display, the Board members complained constantly that they could not see what was on the screen. But with our new dnp Supernova XL, the complaint rate is zero. And that means no headaches for the technical team.”
