Complexity Gaming, a premier U.S. esports organization, has opened its new GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, TX. The GameStop Performance Center is a state-of-the-art training facility where players can gain insight and strategy from top esports professionals and learn to compete at higher levels. It is also home to Complexity Gaming’s teams, who practice, train and compete there.
Audience Inc., an audio-visual design and installation integrator in the Dallas, Texas area, designed and installed audio-visual systems throughout the Center’s multi-level complex. RGB Spectrum’s Galileo video wall processors power the numerous video walls and displays throughout the complex. Just two Galileo processors drive all the video walls in the lobby, the player lounge, the main public room, as well as displays in training rooms and the locker room.
The project entailed a variety of 4K video wall configurations and display sizes. The Galileo processor supported this custom output resolution support and display layout flexibility.
In the Center’s first floor lobby, the first Galileo processor drives a 4K 4 x 4 video wall. The wall presents general content about Complexity Gaming and the Center to visitors as they enter the facility. The same Galileo processor feeds a second video wall and adjacent portrait-oriented LCD displays in the Player Lounge, where visitors and players can relax and view esport competitions.
On the Center’s second floor, another Galileo processor powers an 18-foot 3 x 5 video wall in the main Public Room, which presents streamed video of gaming competitions as well as sponsored content. The processor also outputs to additional displays in three training rooms and the locker room.
The Galileo processors receive direct AV-over-IP streams and baseband inputs. Content includes Twitch.tv streams of live gaming competitions, pre-recorded tournament contests, sponsor promotions, internal marketing messaging, and player gaming schedules. The processors consolidate these feeds and output them to the video walls and other displays throughout the facility.
Operators can instantly switch and route input sources, choose from customizable display layouts, and resize and position display windows using the Galileo’s built-in, easy to use GUI or a touch screen controller.

The Galileo processor offers the flexibility to rotate output and display content in any size, anywhere on the video wall. Display layouts can be changed instantly to focus on particular areas of interest. Operators can select preset display layouts, switch and route sources, and size and position windows.
A unique “wall mimic” features enables the entire wall display or any region of interest to be encoded and streamed for live viewing elsewhere.
