Monitor production at EIZO - Full overview in production

EIZO uses its own IP decoding solution to monitor production processes

EIZO’s headquarters are located in the city of Hakusan, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. This is where planning, development, quality control, manufacturing and after-sales service for the various product lines come together. This unique integration enables EIZO to provide high-quality solutions to users around the world.

In the production of LCD monitors and other visual solutions, IP decoding products from the company were installed to monitor production processes and ensure the safety of the personnel. This brought a number of benefits.

Improving visibility in the restricted access cleanroom

Advantage of the installation: Securing employees remotely

The EIZO factory has its own ISO Class 1* cleanroom where touch panel monitors and other sensitive products are manufactured. Class 1 is the highest classification of ISO 14644-1, and to maintain the strict cleanliness standard, only a small number of employees are allowed in the area. This access restriction made it difficult to monitor production and the safety of the employees inside.

*ISO 14644-1 Class 1 specifies a maximum particle concentration of 0.1 micrometre per 1 m3 of air.

This is where the DuraVision FDF4627W-IP comes in – this large 46-inch IP decoding monitor was installed in the management office which enabled supervisors to check on progress and monitor worker safety from outside the clean room.

"The cleanroom is not an area that we can easily enter and leave, so it is incredibly useful for us to be able to track production by looking at what's on the screen. It helps us with process control."

Leader Manufacturing Department, EIZO Corporation

Tracking difficult operating conditions and unmanned production processes

Advantage of installation: Improved visibility of unmanned processes for efficient staff deployment and safe operation

EIZO uses an automatic inspection system that employs artificial intelligence (AI) in the monitor production process.

As the inspection process takes place in an unmanned darkroom, production staff cannot enter the room at any time to monitor the process. To solve this problem, EIZO installed an IP camera inside the inspection room, connected to the DX0211-IP IP decoder box and a 31.5-inch 4K monitor mounted outside the room. Computerless, with only a LAN connection between the camera and the IP decoder box, the monitor displays images from the inspection room. This allows EIZO to detect and resolve anomalies at an early stage and reliably maintain smooth operation.

Monitoring of process chains with spatial separation and transitions from automated to manual processes

Advantage of the installation: Efficient observation of production processes

Automated processes that use AI complement the production processes at EIZO. Since they are usually unmanned, IP decoder monitors are installed at operations that follow automated production steps, for example where employees visually inspect the products.

Although the assembly, inspection and packaging processes span several floors, production staff can easily check the progress of the previous process, make appropriate staffing adjustments, and respond effectively to backlogs, all resulting in improved production efficiency.

"The IP decoding monitors and the IP decoding boxes can easily contribute to improved production monitoring. We are proud to use our own products. The ease of being able to view live video from IP cameras by simply connecting via LAN and without a PC is invaluable."

Section Manager Manufacturing Department, EIZO Corporation

Features of the EIZO IP decoding solution

1. monitor with integrated decoder

EIZO IP decoding monitors are equipped with an IP decoder that allows the monitor to be connected directly to an IP camera with just a LAN cable and a switch. They can display up to 16 or 32* streams simultaneously on a single screen and can be flexibly wall-mounted to save space.

2. box solution for combination with monitors of any size

The DX0211-IP is a compact IP decoding box that offers the same functions as the IP decoding monitor in an external box format. This allows users to combine it with any size monitor that meets their installation requirements.

3. easy addition of monitors to the infrastructure

As multiple monitors can be installed on the same network, it is easy to keep track of multiple locations. The IP decoding monitor and IP decoding box offer easy connection to a network switch via LAN, making it easy to add new devices in future installations.
