Creation of the Comprehensive A/v system
The Santa Claran Hotel and Casino in Espanola recently remodeled their bar into one of the first sports books in the state of New Mexico. Senior Design Consultant Shawn Mills and the crew at ListenUp’s Albuquerque location were integral to the transformation. Working with Kha’P’o Construction, a local tribally owned and managed firm, ListenUp created a comprehensive audio/video system with over 30 wall mounted 55- and 65-inch Samsung televisions throughout the sports book, including 24 on the A/V system and six that are for betting. A 165-inch x 165-inch Planar video wall is capable of displaying up to nine images via up to eight sources, with multiple tiling options. There’s also a 3-zone distributed audio system with Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling and in-wall speakers throughout the sports book and rest of the casino, JBL all-weather speakers on the back patio, and the capability of up to 12 mic/line audio inputs. A 19-inch Middle Atlantic rack/enclosure houses the A/V and control components.
