Facility: Barona Casino & Resort
Location: Barona Casino & Resort, Lakeside (san diego), CA
Challenge: Providing an exciting and vibrant environment for casino guests was paramount in this project, as was creating a seamless experience as guests travelled from the legacy casino floor to the newly expanded area. Barona needed a way for their casino operator to easily control the casino’s atmosphere through an intuitive system that can manipulate audio, video, and signage.
Solution: More than 60 NEC professional monitors and displays for both broadcast video and digital signage, a Crestron signal system with iPad control integration, Cisco network switches, Peavey digital audio signal processors with CobraNet for connection to the existing legacy audio system, Just-Add-Power AV over IP devices, a custom video dome that displays a 20K lumen image using NEC projectors and Navitar custom 180 degree fisheye lenses over the 40-foot dome surface using 7th Sense Video Media Server for projection mapping and Scalable Display software for projector stacking.
Press & Media Coverage: Sound & Video Contractor, a digital magazine covering the professional AV industry, published an in-depth case study on the Barona Casino expansion, and specifically on Fluid Sound’s work as the systems integrator. The case study addresses the challenges we faced when tasked with designing a system that could distribute the casino’s more than 30 video sources across both the legacy casino floor and the new expansion. The writeup also talks about our use of a video over IP (VOIP) solution that saved the client money, supports 4K video, and provides them with an immense amount of flexibility for future expansions and updates.
