As a luxury casino, resort, and spa, Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage, California was looking to push the boundaries of aesthetics and create a unique, immersive experience, unlike anything else in the Greater Palm Springs area.
Through the use of a curved wide-scale visual display in its new sports bar, 360 Sports, customers in the bar as well as all guests entering the resort, now see the eye-catching visuals, showcasing the high quality and design that is representative of Agua Caliente.
To 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.
Getting it done in the sun
To meet the fast deadline, Advanced LED Displays was chosen as the integrator for the project. The company 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 customer service, all aspects of SEAMLESS by Peerless-AV, the company’s LED Video Wall Integration Program.
The SEAMLESS program was created to make sure 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,” says Vince Ovist, President, Advanced LED Displays. “No other company came to that point where they would help us out from the very beginning.”
A winning 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 deadline. The casino was reportedly thrilled with the outcome and guests can now enjoy the action from anywhere in the sports bar.
“The feedback has been phenomenal,” says Bill Oliver, Chief Information Officer, Agua Caliente. “It’s been a great buzz around the valley. This is the place to come.”
