Dahua Technology, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China cooperated with Eiffler Industrial Company for video wall surveillance project in Caracas, Venezuela.
Eiffler Industrial Company is the supplier of Petroleo De Venezuela S.A. which is also an oil exploration equipment manufacturer. Its products cover oil exploration, production and process. This cooperation has brought more opportunities and possibilities for Dahua.
A typical video wall is made up of a set of computer monitors or television screens that are arranged like tiles on a wall to give the effect of a single big screen. Generally speaking, video wall usually runn on Windows-based operating systems. But, in Venezuela, the video wall needs to run on a Linux system since Windows is forbidden for use nationwide. Therefore, Dahua needed to ensure the video wall is capable of running on Linux system.
The compatibility of the system was an uncertain operational factor for Dahua at first in this project. Compared to Windows systems, video walls are more difficult to operate on Linux. It took at least 2 months, which is 4 hours a day, for the Dahua technology team to run tests. The whole experiment needed both sides’ engineers to discuss and coordinate together, and it needed third-party engineers’ remote support to work out the best result as well. Both sides were highly satisfied when they finally saw the Dahua logo on the video wall, running on Linux system.

The Dahua DLP splicing video wall supports Linux system and is compatible with all the customer’s original products. Various kinds of products were used by the whole project including 12 units of DHP-67-XGA, 6 units of DS-DZ-67, one unit of DH-DSCON, 4 units of DH-VGA0102 and one unit of DHM-VGA 2408. Build on this success, Dahua is capable of offering wide range of product portfolios to meet different applications.
