Galileo features hardware acceleration11 February 2015
A range of control room management solutions, including a simulation of its Galileo Display Processor, is being showcased by RGB Spectrum.
Galileo is described by the company as a powerful and economical videowall system designed around a PC-based architecture and provides integrated control of multiple security systems, including VMS and access control, as well as external devices, without requiring custom software.
The processor is said to combine the benefits of PC-based systems, such as IP inputs and native applications, with a hardware acceleration engine that ensures real-time performance and 24/7 reliability. Featuring an open architecture that is hardware- and software-agnostic, RGB Spectrum says that the Galileo processor is ideal for a range of applications.
The Galileo processor supports remote collaboration through two methods. It decodes H.264 graphic and motion video streams, allowing operators to view and control remote sources. In addition, RGB Spectrum’s VDA remote desktop technology provides operators with keyboard/mouse control over remote systems and equipment via a LAN or WAN.
VDA performance is, according to the company, demonstrably superior to the industry standard VNC, particularly at low bandwidth or with high motion graphics and video.
A modular design allows the processor to support a full range of input and output types (IP, analogue, DVI/HDMI, 3G/HD-SDI) with resolutions up to 3,840 x 2,160 (4K). The Galileo processor can also deliver HDCP protected content to an unlimited number of displays: RGB Spectrum says that other PC systems either do not support HDCP at all or impose severe limitations on wall size.
The Galileo system is said to be easy to set up and control using a computer, tablet or mobile device.
