Galileo Powers Dazzling Video Walls in Cutting-Edge Esports Training Facility
Complexity Gaming, a premier U.S. esports organization, has opened its new GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, TX. The GameStop Performance Center is a state-of-the-art esports training facility where players can gain insight and strategy from top esports professionals and learn to compete at higher levels. It is also home to Complexity Gaming’s teams, who practice, train and compete from the Center.
Audience Inc., an audio-visual design and installation integrator in the Dallas, Texas area, was commissioned to design and install state-of-the-art audio-visual systems throughout the Center’s multi-level complex. Audience selected RGB Spectrum’s Galileo video wall processors to power the numerous video walls and displays throughout the complex. Remarkably, just two Galileo processors drive all the video walls in the lobby, the player lounge, the main public room, as well as displays in training rooms and the locker room.
The project entailed a variety of 4K video wall configurations and display sizes. The Galileo processor met this design challenge with custom output resolution support and unmatched display layout flexibility.
In the Center’s first floor lobby, the first Galileo processor drives a large 4K 4 x 4 video wall. The wall presents general content about Complexity Gaming and the Center to visitors as they enter the facility. The same Galileo processor feeds a second video wall and adjacent portrait-oriented LCD displays in the Player Lounge, where visitors and players can relax and view esport competitions.

On the Center’s second floor, another Galileo processor powers an 18-foot 3 x 5 video wall in the main Public Room, which presents streamed video of gaming competitions as well as sponsored content. The processor also outputs to additional displays in three training rooms and the locker room.
The Galileo processors receive direct AV-over-IP streams and baseband inputs. Content includes Twitch.tv streams of live gaming competitions, pre-recorded tournament contests, sponsor promotions, internal marketing messaging, and player gaming schedules. The processors consolidate these feeds and output them to the video walls and other displays throughout the facility.
Operators can instantly switch and route input sources, choose from customizable display layouts, and resize and position display windows using the Galileo’s built-in, easy to use GUI or a simple touch screen controller.
Andrew Miesner, Director of Technology, for Complexity Gaming concluded, "The Galileo systems by RGB Spectrum have played a major role in creating a state-of-the-art esports training facility. Galileo’s ability to distribute our content to any number of displays, in any number of different layouts makes the system invaluable. Not only do we now have complete oversight of our digital signage and media, but we can create any combination of layouts, sources, and scripts that allow us to have full control over the visual output of every display in our facility. Depending on the time, day or occasion, we can easily and automatically have content reflect the needs of our players, staff and visitors."
The Galileo processor offers the flexibility to rotate output and display content in any size, anywhere on the video wall. Display layouts can be changed instantly to focus on particular areas of interest. Operators can select preset display layouts, switch and route sources, and size and position windows.
The Galileo processor works with all types of video walls: an image overlap capability is available for projector-based video walls, custom timings accommodate the special resolutions of LED walls, and bezel compensation optimizes viewing with LCD video walls.
Advanced features include a unique "wall mimic", whereby the entire wall display or any region of interest can be encoded and streamed for live viewing elsewhere, HDCP content protection, scripting for third party system control, and automatic IP stream discovery for RGB Spectrum’s Zio® network AV encoders.
The Galileo processor is the ideal solution for conference rooms, security operations centers, control rooms, command centers, entertainment and sports venues, boardrooms, education, corporate lobbies, and digital signage.
