Leveling Up: The Creation of a Stunning eSports Center at Harrisburg University

New Era Technology was engaged by Harrisburg University of Science and Technology to develop a design solution for a new eSports practice space. New Era had to create a design solution that overcame challenges presented by the size of the Harrisburg space and the need to ensure the image displayed on the wall matched that of the player’s terminal. The concern was how to best translate the fast-paced action of a match to a large video wall with such a relatively close viewing distance while maintaining the high frame rate needed. An aggressive implementation schedule was developed to ensure the installation of the practice suite before Harrisburg University’s national eSports tournament and festival, the HUE Festival.

A seventeen (17) panel Barco UniSee video wall solution, along with supporting audio and signal processing control system was selected. Additionally, a user-friendly Crestron control system was developed to allow for flexibility of signal routing and content layout on the video wall. The video wall allows for several screen layouts giving users the flexibility for multi-player gaming or focusing on one or two players at a time for coaching analysis. To provide sound masking during gaming sessions for players seated nearby New Era strategically mounted pendant ceiling speakers throughout the facility. The bezel-less design ensures that regardless of the configuration, the uniformity of the images remain the same.

This facility has become a jewel for not only Harrisburg University but also for the entire collegiate eSports community for years to come.
