InfoComm14 VIDEO: RGB Spectrum launches Galileo display processor23 June 2014
RGB Spectrum has launched the Galileo Display Processor, a powerful and economical videowall system designed around a PC-based architecture.
The Galileo processor adds the benefits of PC-based systems such as IP inputs and the ability to run applications natively on the processor, while maintaining the 24/7 level of reliability and real-time performance of all of RGB Spectrum’s solutions.
The system supports a full range of input and output types (IP, analogue, DVI/HDMI, 3G/HD-SDI) with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K). Unlike other PC systems that either do not support HDCP at all or impose severe limitations on wall size, the Galileo processor can also deliver HDCP-protected content to an unlimited number of displays.
A proprietary driver enables the Galileo system to deliver real-time throughput and superb image quality. The processor’s solid state drive and dual-redundant power supplies add an extra level of reliability.
The Galileo processor supports H.264 decodes for motion video. In addition, the incorporation of the company’s VDA remote desktop technology, with integrated KVM capabilities, allows the Galileo processor to provide operators with low-latency control over remote systems and equipment via a LAN or WAN. System performance is demonstrably superior to the industry standard VNC, particularly at low bandwidth or with high motion graphics and video.
The versatile Galileo processor can configure an unlimited number of windows on videowall arrays of up to 56 displays. Windows can be displayed anywhere on the videowall, in any size, within or across screens, and in correct aspect ratio or scaled over multiple monitors. Images within individual windows can be panned or zoomed to emphasise detail. The processor’s window layout options are endless, and users can use presets to save and recall preferred configurations to quickly change the appearance of the videowall.
The Galileo system is easy to set up and control. An advanced GUI allows users to drag and drop inputs and applications, such as VMS, SCADA and videoconferencing, to the videowall. A tablet interface is also available. In addition, an API allows operators to monitor remote alarms and create advanced scripts to recall layouts and control third-party equipment.
The Galileo processor is designed for a range of applications including mission-critical operations/command centres and control rooms, as well as boardroom videowalls, corporate lobby displays, and large-scale digital signage.
