CARROLL UNIVERSITY
Carroll University relies on
Creston & Automation Arts
for classroom upgrades
amid the COVID-19
pandemic and the addition
of a new state-of-theart
immersive gaming
experience.
By Alyssa Borelli
THE PRIVATE LIBERAL ARTS college Carroll
University, in Wisconsin, provides students
unique learning opportunities to live a life of
purpose and meaning.
A New Addition
Carroll University's new eSports Center
sponsored by Automation Arts will offer
students both competitive and recreational
gaming opportunities. Crestron DM NVX
AV-over-IP technology distributes esports
video flawlessly throughout the space
with zero latency. With twelve student
gaming stations in the space, along with
two large displays and in-ceiling speakers,
students can always be kept in on the
action. " Our goal was to be able to project
any of the student station screens onto our

wall-mounted displays and push the same
content to the internet for live streaming, "
said Wang. " Crestron DM NVX delivers
the flexible and expendable switching
experience we were looking for, as well as
headroom for future expansion. " Carroll
University is planning to extend the immersive
experience beyond the esports lounge
by routing the DM NVX system to adjacent
areas in the Campus Center to display live
gaming content.
The Software
Automation Arts used a unique blend of
technologies on the UI, which included
Crestron's VTProE software as well as standard
HTML and CSS. Automation Arts used
the TSW built in Chromium browser to load
a looped HTML intro page hosted by the
processor. When pressed, a HTML form is
used to pass the press into the processor to
launch the system startup and begin another
custom Carroll/Automation Arts countdown

a gamer feel to the space. Hidden on the interface

games in the TSW's Chromium browser. The
secret lies in the TSW's light sensor and a
well-placed press on the interface.
Crestron has helped unite the in-classroom
technologies and deliver an engaging space
for students to utilize outside of their classes.
" The A+ Partner Program and Crestron
warranties have provided us with great tools
and strategies that have helped us expand
our systems while we adapt to the growing
needs of our campus, " said Wang.
