Casinos are all about the cohesiveness of the experience, and Barona Casino is no different. The new audiovisual system had to tie the expansion area to the legacy casino floor in a way that would feel seamless to casino guests.
San Diego, Ca (PRWEB) July 16, 2018
Fluid Sound, an audiovisual company in San Diego, announced recently that they have completed the design and installation of the audiovisual system for the new casino floor expansion at Barona Casino & Resort in Lakeside, California.
Fluid sound was tasked with the design and integration of the casino’s new HDMI over IP 40GB network trunk backbone, and also with installing the more than 60 new displays, which will be used for both broadcast video and digital signage. Another large part of the project was the creation of a large dome at the entrance of the casino’s new parking garage, which was completely covered by video imaging. This was accomplished by stacking two laser projectors with custom fisheye lenses to achieve a 20K lumen image over the entire dome surface.
In addition to the work they did on the casino floor expansion, Fluid Sound also provided the casino with a foundation that will support the eventual overhaul of the legacy casino systems. In the meantime, this implementation provides a seamless experience as guests move from the legacy casino floor to the newly completed area.
Dennis Pappenfus, Partner at Fluid Sound, had this to say about the Barona Casino & Resort project, “Throughout the entire design and installation process, we had to keep cohesion in mind. Casinos are all about the cohesiveness of the experience, and Barona Casino is no different. The new audiovisual system had to tie the expansion area to the legacy casino floor in a way that would feel seamless to casino guests.”
Pappenfus continued, “We also wanted to design a system that would give the casino operator the ability to easily create an exciting atmosphere for guests through audio, video, and digital signage. Our system design and implementation will allow them to focus on the creative, rather than the technical aspects of achieving their desired atmosphere for casino guests through the use of an intuitive and easy-to-operate iPad interface that controls the casino’s entire AV system.”
Notable vendors and manufactures on this project included: NEC (for professional displays, monitors and projectors), Just-Add-Power (for HDMI over IP devices and support), Cisco (for network switches), Peavey (for digital audio signal processors), Navitar (for projections optics), Crestron (for control systems), and Klipsch (for professional ceiling loudspeakers and subwoofers). The overall management of the project was done by TSA Construction, a San Diego-based general contracting company.
