RGB Spectrum’s Galileo Video Wall Processor Scores in the University of Arizona’s Football Media Room
College football is the top tradition in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturdays in the Fall. Arizona Football is a point of pride for the University of Arizona, and the program has begun a new era under head coach Jedd Fisch. The Wildcats are on the rise as a team, and their Lowell-Stevens Football Facility (LSFF) has also been elevated since Coach Fisch took over the program. The Fox Family Digital Media Room is a cornerstone of this renovated facility, utilizing new, state-of-the-art audio and visual technology.
This space is flexible and customizable to accommodate various content production needs. The area is utilized in multiple ways, from holding a press conference to recording podcasts to serving as a backdrop for the team reporter to broadcast. The overall presentation of the room jumps out at you and is a popular stop for anyone touring the LSFF.
The UA Wildcat football program enlisted the services of Arizona Sound & Light (ASL), an audio-visual systems integrator, to implement the Media Room project. ASL selected RGB Spectrum’s Galileo video processor for its support of various digital and IP-based signal sources, display layout flexibility, and exceptional 4K image quality.
The Galileo video processor powers the Media Room’s multiple display surfaces: a captivating 12 1/4’ wide by 7’ high LED video wall, the room’s 86-inch wall- mounted display, and three 55-inch displays on the host / interviewer desk. A single Galileo processor drives the video wall, and the individual displays with customized content for each.
The Galileo processor receives feeds from multiple computers, digital media servers, and cable/satellite systems. Content includes local and national sports broadcasts, promotional content, football game footage, game and player statistics, and pre-recorded player and team personnel interviews. The processor enables the entire LED video wall to be treated as a single seamless display or partitioned into multiple windows positioned in any size, anywhere on the display surface.
The processor provides an excellent 4K viewing experience with the highest video processing performance. It supports many baseband video and IP-based inputs, including analog, AV-over-IP streams, DVI/HDMI, and 3G/HD-SDI. It offers up to 4K60 input and output with a full range of resolutions and orientations.
According to Derek Wilson, Commercial Audio-Visual Sales Manager for Arizona Sound & Light, “the customer response has been superb. They love it. The Galileo processor delivers excellent image quality and offers outstanding value with its ability to drive the LED video wall and the other displays throughout the Media Room.”
The University of Arizona’s strength in undergraduate education and scientific research is paralleled by its excellence in playing fields, courts, and other venues of its 22-sport Intercollegiate Athletic Program. The Arizona Wildcats compete in the tradition-rich Pacific-12 Conference, “The Conference of Champions.” For a more comprehensive view of what makes our department unique, please visit the website at www.arizonawildcats.com.
