Case Study – Using LED Wall for Hospitality

Sports Bar LED Signage

Overview

As a luxury casino, resort, and spa, Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage, California was looking to further push the boundaries of aesthetics and create a unique, immersive experience, unlike anything else in Greater Palm Springs. Through the use of a curved wide-scale visual display in its new sports bar, 360 Sports, patrons in the sports bar as well as all guests entering the resort would see the eye-catching visuals, showcasing the high quality and design that is representative of Agua Caliente.

The Problem

To truly wow guests, the resort was seeking an intricate video wall design that would require a complicated installation with curved walls and recessed displays. In addition to the shape of the wall, which affected display alignment, 360 Sports was still under construction. Further adding pressure around the project was the tight timeline tied to a New Year’s Eve launch, only allowing 10-16 days to complete the full installation.

The Solution

To meet the fast deadline, Advanced LED Displays was chosen as the integrator for the project. They selected Unilumin for the LED screens, and Peerless-AV for its LED mounts. While Peerless-AV was the only manufacturer whose mounts would work for the curved wall, the brand was also selected based on its flexibility, cost effectiveness, and superior customer service – all aspects of SEAMLESS by Peerless-AV®, the company’s LED Video Wall Integration Program. The SEAMLESS program ensures the entire Peerless-AV LED Solutions Team is available every step of the way, guaranteeing every customer receives quality product support and service.

It was so refreshing to have someone there from our (Peerless-AV) team to actually help us design the mounting system that would fulfill all of these crazy designs we came up with,” said Vince Ovist, President, Advanced LED Displays. “No other company came to that point where they would help us out from the very beginning.”

The Result

Without fail, Peerless-AV was able to install the LED mounts that allowed 360 Sports to become the first sports bar without televisions. The entire installation process was simple and completed before the tight deadline. The casino was thrilled with the ending outcome and guests can now enjoy the action from anywhere in the sports bar.

The feedback has been phenomenal,” said Bill Oliver, Chief Information Officer, Agua Caliente. “It’s been a great buzz around the valley. This is the place to come.”

Case Study – LED video wall Epic Sports Bar Samsung

Colossal Direct View LED Display For Bar

Peerless digital signageNorthern Quest Resort & Casino, located in Spokane, Washington, offers luxurious accommodations, Vegas-style gambling, a spa, and over one dozen restaurants, bars, and lounges. One of the most popular spots in the resort is EPIC Sports Bar, a comfortable sports bar featuring upscale pub fare.

Open daily at 7 am, EPIC’s guests can enjoy viewing sporting events at any time of day – breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Like all sports bars, EPIC’s crowds and varying event types make high quality displays a must for patrons. However, constructing and maintaining a large screen was a challenge. The bar originally relied on an old TV screen, which was then upgraded to a movie screen and two sizable projectors that would play content. However it was difficult, if not impossible to clean the screen and when the HVAC system was in use, the screen would shake. Further, the projectors proved to be quite noisy and replacement costs were astronomical.

The Solution

With these issues in place, Northern Quest Resort & Casino decided to seek out a digital signage option for EPIC that would best showcase sporting events and entertainment, while meeting the resort’s high aesthetic standards.

In summer 2017, the resort began conducting research, turning to its longstanding installation partner, YESCO, for help with the project. YESCO next sought to find a display and mount that would best meet EPIC’s needs. Based on past experience and a strong partnership, YESCO selected Samsung for its IFH LED displays. With trusted recommendations, along with video wall expertise, quality hardware, and a comfortable price point, YESCO chose Peerless-AV as the mount manufacturer for the project.

An additional benefit of working with Peerless-AV was SEAMLESS by Peerless-AV ® , the company’s LED video wall integration program that provided start-to-finish support throughout the project. Peerless-AV’s dedicated SEAMLESS LED Solutions Team sets the bar for high quality design, incorporating a dynamic group of structural and mechanical engineers, product managers, project managers, installers, and sales and service personnel, which were all available to YESCO and Northern Quest Resort & Casino.

Case Study – Red Rocks in Colorado Digital Signage Solution

Case Study – Red Rocks in Colorado Digital Signage Solution

digital signage red rocks case studyPeerless-AV ® helps esteemed,
Colorado outdoor music venue
engage its patrons.

Case Study 2018

 

 

The Challenge

The Red Rocks Amphitheatre, located in Morrison, Colorado, is situated within the Red Rocks Park, surrounded by 738 acres of geological wonders. Originally built in 1936, the large, outdoor concert venue has celebrated over 75 years in use. The theatre can hold nearly 10,000 people and has hosted some of the very best musicians, including The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, U2, and more.

red rocks amphitheaterLike many busy venues, Red Rocks Amphitheatre’s crowds and varying event types made it crucial to be able to quickly and efficiently provide updated information to patrons, especially in the concession areas, which regularly receive heavy foot traffic as guests purchase food and drinks as well as travel through to reach different areas of the theatre. To keep information current, the venue was consistently printing and manually replacing static signage at each individual stand, a task that had long proven to be far too taxing of an undertaking.

The Solution

Red Rocks decided to seek out a digital signage option that would best showcase the venue’s various menu offerings and streamline the ordering process. In October 2017, Red Rocks approached Ping HD, an end-to-end digital media company, for a solution.

Together they determined the hardware needed to revamp the concession stands, in addition to software that would allow menu changes to be scheduled in advance and change automatically. In sum, the team set out to install 33 total Samsung outdoor displays, 19 of which would be located outside. All displays would utilize EngagePHDTM digital signage software,  ensuring content could be adjusted as needed and the
possibility of downtime would be minimized.

Peerless red rocks mountThe key challenge for the project was finding the correct mount for the Samsung displays that were selected. Relying on Ping HD’s advice, the Red Rocks Amphitheatre chose Peerless-AV ® to provide mounts for the project. The durability and functionality of Peerless-AV’s mounts were the primary contributors for selecting Peerless-AV mounting solutions. In addition, at the time, Peerless-AV was the only approved option available, industry-wide, that would fit the Samsung displays being used – another
contributing factor for the decision to move forward with the company.

Peerless-AV’s EW Series offers outdoor mounting solutions designed exclusively for Samsung’s OHF Series SMART Signage displays. Peerless-AV’s Outdoor Tilt Wall Mount in Landscape (EWL-OH46F), selected for the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, features:

    • A custom design specifically engineered for outdoor use and constructed from weatherproof materials
    • Adaptors that hook onto the wall plate, simplifying the install
    • A clean profile that hides cables and hardware within an enclosed wall plate for a clutter-free installation
    • Air baffles that help separate exhaust from intake air, crucial for the lifespan of the Samsung display
    • Tilts forward from 0° to 10° when in landscape orientation and 0° to 4° when in portrait orientation

redrock digital signageLike all Peerless-AV mounts, the Outdoor Tilt Wall Mounts are designed, manufactured, and tested to withstand the outdoor elements, so companies can focus on what matters most: the customer experience.

The Installation and the Results

 

digital signage red rocksInstallation began in April 2018 as Red Rocks Amphitheatre was nearing the opening of concert season, which put the entire team in a time crunch. At times, installation occurred in tandem with bands setting up.

The location on the side of a mountain also posed a challenge, as access can only occur from the bottom (where parking is) or at the top, where the carts and
concessions are and the integrations were spread across a few acres.

Working together, the team mastered the installation in just two to three weeks. Since installing, customers have noted the enhanced aesthetics and ease of locating the concession stands. Further, the venue has seen increases in guests getting in line for concessions, as they are now more engaging and easier to notice at night.

After the installation, the venue felt completely different. The enhancement of digital signage has elevated Red Rocks Amphitheater to a whole new level.

An extension to Peerless-AV’s projector mount product line, the PJR250 is designed to provide a quick, safe, and simple installation – making it the ideal solution in rental and staging settings where products in venues may frequently change.

The PJR250 features a low profile, pre-assembled design with a Hook-and-Hang™ system and unique dedicated adaptor plates that support all major large venue projector brands.

“In developing our Large Venue Projector Mount, our team focused heavily on the impact that the design would have on the installation process,” said Nick Belcore, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Peerless-AV. “Including options like the Hook-and-Hang™ feature as well as dedicated adaptor plates was a must for this solution. We wanted integrators to be able to install and un-install large format projectors as seamlessly as possible.”

For a quick and easy installation, the PJR250 includes a simple Hook-and-Hang™ feature, which provides a large landing area when securing a projector to the mount. In addition, the dedicated adaptor plates place the center of gravity in the middle of the mount, simplifying adjustments and achieving the perfect balance when ceiling or flush mounting a projector. A unique feature in the market, these adaptor plates significantly reduce installation time by eliminating the need to install legs, which can be difficult to stabilize and can lead to projector sag over time.

To obtain perfect image alignment, the PJR250 features horizontal adjustment up to 3″ as well as tilt (+15/-5°), roll (±5°), and swivel (360°) adjustment, which are lockable to prevent even the smallest shift to the image once installation is complete.

The PJR250 includes a safety cable for assurance when handling and installing large projectors, as well as integrated cable management, allowing the cables to be routed through the projector mount for a clean aesthetic.

Peerless-AV’s Large Venue Projector Mounts are available now through Peerless-AV direct sales representatives and authorized distribution networks.

 AURORA, Ill. – February 5, 2018 – Peerless-AV®, the award-winning designer and manufacturer of the highest quality audio and video solutions and accessories, is excited to introduce its newest video wall mount, the SmartMount® Supreme Full Service Video Wall Mount with Quick Release (DS-VW775-QR), at ISE 2018, Hall 12, Stand F90.

Designed with the needs of integrators and end-users in mind, the DS-VW775-QR offers innovative, time-saving installation and maintenance features, including tool-less micro adjustment, easy hang wall plate, quick release mechanism, and reusable spacers for both portrait and landscape applications.

With the addition of tool-less lateral micro-adjustment, the DS-VW775-QR offers 1.5″ of fine tune adjustment on each of the X, Y, and Z axes. The mount also features prominently colored adjustment knobs that can be easily located by installers during set-up and future video wall maintenance visits. Plus, serviceability is easier than ever before with the press to release pop-out feature, providing quick and convenient access to a recessed display without searching for hidden pull strings. The gentle release mechanism requires less pressure to pop-out a display than other video wall mounts, giving peace of mind that the delicate pixel structure will not be damaged from pressing too hard on the display front.

Reusable spacers can be used for both portrait and landscape applications resulting in a faster and more cost-effective install. Enhanced cable management allows the cables to effortlessly travel in and out with the display, eliminating the chance of interfering with the mount, as well.

“As the leading digital signage mount manufacturer in the industry, our key focus has and continues to be creating solutions that ease installation and maintenance, while aiding our customers in developing eye-catching video walls,” said Nick Belcore, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Peerless-AV. “We are excited to introduce this latest evolution of our award-winning Supreme Mount, now available with a built-in quick release mechanism. We are confident that this addition will provide integrators and end-users with expanded options when implementing video walls.”

The standard version DS-VW775, launched in 2016, has the same feature set as the new DS-VW775-QR, but offers unique red pop-out levers above and below. When the mount is fully extended it offers an extra 2″ of service space from the wall compared to the SmartMount® Full-Service Video Wall Mount with Quick Release (DS-VW765-LQR/PQR).

Both Supreme models weigh significantly less than previous Peerless-AV video wall mounts. The DS-VW775-QR is 4.5lbs lighter and the DS-VW775 is 10lbs lighter than the DS-VW765-LQR Full-Service Video Wall Mount with Quick Release, for example. This makes these mounts even easier to handle and position, especially when combined with the installation app and reusable display-dedicated wall plate spacers. Using the easy hang keyhole adaptor plate, a single installer can simply hook the mount onto the wall, providing a hands-free environment to secure it – a valuable on-site time and cost saving feature.

The DS-VW775-QR and DS-VW775 support 46″ to 60″ displays with a maximum load of 56.8kg (125lbs) and VESA pattern up to 600 x 400. Included security hardware makes the DS-VW775-QR suitable for public environments to deter tampering and theft.
