InfoComm 2024: Atlona AV over IP powers esports demo

Powered by Atlona’s OmniStream AV over IP and Velocity control systems, the esports environment includes a third-party video wall, high-powered gaming PCs, and gaming furniture

Atlona heads to InfoComm in June with an in-booth esports demonstration designed to show how ultra-fast switching, multiview processing and touchscreen control benefit a live gaming environment. Powered by Atlona’s OmniStream AV over IP and Velocity control systems, the esports environment includes a third-party video wall, high-powered gaming PCs, and gaming furniture.

Visitors will find an esports environment with four zones: A coach’s station, a shoutcaster’s station, spectator video wall, and gaming zone. One highlight of the esports environment is the 94in by 53in video wall supplied by Just Video Walls.

The microLED video wall features a 1.2mm pixel pitch and 8000:1 contrast ratio that augments OmniStream’s multiview processing capabilities to produce a four-way split across the 108in diagonal video wall.

Another highlight of the Atlona esports environment is the gaming zone equipped with two Esports Evolution gaming desks from Spectrum Industries and gaming gear from Logitech G. While in the zone, guests are invited to participate in head-to-head matches of Epic Games’ Rocket League and post their high scores for a chance to win one of two Spectrum Industries’ Esports Xpressions gaming chairs.

In the Atlona esports environment, guests will see how OmniStream 2.0 delivers sub-frame latency from encoder to decoder, along with 4K/60 4:4:4 streams and ultra-fast switching. Additionally, visitors will be able to see demonstrations of OmniStream 2.0 multiview processing on the spectator video wall with quad-split and side-by-side viewing modes. This capability is built into the OmniStream networked AV decoder.

Velocity AV control touch panels will be positioned at the spectator video wall, shoutcaster’s station and the coach’s station. Atlona personnel will demo independent switching in these three zones with the ability to present side-by-side gameplay action, player closeups, and score board views.

Garth Lobban, director of marketing, Atlona, said: “The success of the OmniStream 2.0 launch has solidified its reputation for reliable and dynamic AV over IP distribution in education, corporate and hospitality environments.”

He added: “We’ve now set our sights on how OmniStream 2.0, with its multiview capabilities and extremely low latency performs in the very challenging esports arena. OmniStream 2.0 is uniquely suited for video distribution in this environment because there’s virtually no limitations on distance or lag in gameplay, and it’s strengthened through Velocity’s flexibility and ease-of-use for touchscreen-enabled management of signal distribution. This makes OmniStream and Velocity the perfect match for high-stakes esports applications.”

InfoComm takes place June 12-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with Atlona exhibiting at Booth C7041.
