Galileo drives the lounge’s 1 x 6 portrait video wall to entertain and inform viewers
The Creighton University School of Dentistry, established in 1905, has a long and storied history of preparing dental graduates noted for professional excellence and commitment to improving the health of their communities. The school resides in a new, state-of-the-art building in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, which offers an inviting gathering place for alumni – the Margaret Stanosheck Bongers and Leo Bongers Alumni Lounge.
The lounge, which is designed for events such as reunions, receptions, and celebrations, features a
six-screen impressive video wall powered by RGB Spectrum’s Galileo processor.
AVI Systems, a national audio-visual systems integrator, incorporated the Galileo video wall processor because of its excellent 4K image quality, its support for a diverse range of input sources and the versatility it brings in displaying portrait orientation. The processor drives the lounge’s 1 x 6 portrait-mode video wall to entertain and inform viewers. The video wall displays names of the dental school’s graduates, Creighton’s Jesuit history, an event calendar, social media feeds, and historical school facts and photos, gaining high praise from viewers and management.
The Galileo processor supports both conventional baseband and IP stream inputs at up to 4K resolution. It receives inputs from media servers, computers, a HDTV tuner, and a DVD player for display in windows of any size, anywhere on the video wall. Using a simple, intuitive GUI, operators can select preset display layouts, or switch and route sources, and size and position windows on the fly.
The processor supports an unlimited number of windows for IP, graphics and/or video sources and outputs them to a wall array of up to 56 displays. A single processor can even control multiple video walls. It supports all types of video walls whatever display technology is chosen. An image overlap capability is available for projector-based video walls, custom output timings accommodate the special resolutions of LED walls, and bezel compensation optimizes viewing with LCD/OLED video walls.
The processor also offers unique “wall mimic”, whereby the entire wall display or any region of interest can be encoded and streamed for live viewing. Additional capabilities include HDCP, the ability to run applications natively, a scripting interface for third party system control, and automatic stream discovery of RGB Spectrum’s Zio AV-over-IP encoders.
In sum, The Galileo processor has the capabilities to make it the ideal solution for a range of video wall system applications including entertainment venues, boardrooms, corporate lobbies, as well as mission-critical operations centers and control rooms.
