Located in Pittsburg Kansas, Kansas Crossing is Kansas’s newest Casino Resort featuring 630 slot machines, 16 gaming tables, poker, restaurant, bar,live entertainment venue, and a 120-room hotel. This $80-million signature property is owned by Equity Ventures, JNB Gaming and developed by Laham Development.
Kansas Crossing required a rock-solid AV over IP distribution solution for Cable TV and PC based digital signage for the facility. Due to sheer volume of LG flat panel displays in various sizes throughout the floor plan, a cost effective solution was required. There was an initial consultant proposal submitted during the construction phase; however, the cost was simply not in their budget.
Seeking other options, Kansas Crossing reached out to McClelland Sound who proposed the use of Aurora’s VLX IPBaseT® Series Transceivers. The system benefits and price point was right on the money and happily accepted McClelland’s proposal. McClelland Sound installed a total of fifty-two VLX Transceivers; ten for source and forty-two for displays all housed in the existing server closet.
The Transceivers were networked to the three existing Aruba switches that routed the signal throughout the facility. McClelland Sound shared Aurora VLX documents with the Kansas Crossing network engineer to confgure switch and utilized a Crestron device for control. Kansas Crossing gave positive feedback for the solution and are fully satisfied with facilities system.
