Vistacom, Barco and Winsted Experts Discuss Critical Role of Control Room Operators

ALLENTOWN, PA – The latest episode of Tech Unraveled by Vistacom focuses on the critical role of control room operators in the utility and energy industries. Hosts Joshua Herring and Lianna Russell are joined by Lee Pagnan, National Sales Manager of Utilities at Barco, and Shawn Brady, VP of Product Development at Winsted, who bring their extensive knowledge and expertise to the discussion.


Control room operators are responsible for managing various aspects of the energy and utility industries, including surveillance, command and control, traffic management, and broadcasting distribution monitoring. The podcast covers the daily tasks of control mission operators, the importance of ergonomic resolutions for operation work centers, and commonly overlooked design considerations.


Brady highlights the difference between task data and viewable data and explains how operators want access to both. However, moving viewable data to a display wall while keeping task data on the desk can lead to greater efficiency. Pagnan shares his thoughts on the trend of increased preparedness of control centers and the need for additional control centers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
