At the core of everything, the operation of the system needed to be simple. This is one of the core challenges when trying to bring a mix of technology and make it effortless to operate.
We decided to use Crestron as our control system, as they are renowned across the audio visual industry for its flexibility and integration into 3rd party systems.
As the main function of the bar was to display sports then the video distribution was critical feature. We opted for a video over IP solution using Wyrestorm. A mixture of 10 video encoders and 29 decoders were used to give a flexible video matrix for the staff to operate. The user facing displays connected to the Wyrestorm system was made up of a number of Samsung 55” and 65” displays. Stoke wanted a focal display in the bar and it was decided to install a 130” 1.8mm InfiLED display on the stage area.
