Integrator Vision Control Associates has installed two SiliconCore Peony 2.6mm Direct View LED display panels at Atlantis Spa and Casino in Reno, Nevada, US. These replace a stacked projector installation.
The new displays are located in the Sports Bar and Lounge area of the casino and feature different sports from all over the world for patrons to bet on. The content featured on the vibrant screens varies between live dog and horse races in the daytime and the high-profile matches from any sporting genre in the evenings and at weekends.
Each of the two Peony 2.6mm displays is 1344 pixels wide by 768 high, which translates to a screen size of 139in (3.5m) wide by 79in (2m) high. The video processors driving the screens allow the casino to seamlessly switch between various sources of the displays. Vision Control Associates recommended the SiliconCore Technology displays for their life-like image quality and low power consumption compared with other displays currently available.
SiliconCore’s LED display products are based on the company’s patented Common Cathode technology which significantly lowers power consumption and heat dissipation. This improves the lifespan of the displays and reduces the overall cost of ownership.
Mike Pristow, general manager, Northern Nevada Operations of Vision Control Associates explained: “The displays were installed to replace four projectors arranged in two 'stacks' of two, with mirrored synchronisation on each screen. The problem with this set-up was the casino team constantly had to frequently replace projector bulbs due to their short lifespan and also even two blended projectors didn’t perform anything like this LED substitute in terms of brightness. The existing rear-projected displays also had a problem as they reflected the ambient light and this really hurt the visibility of the displays. We selected SiliconCore as the perfect replacement due to the increased lifespan of the LED system. This means that the screens will be in place for many years with very little maintenance needed.”
Eric Li, CEO, SiliconCore explained: “The casino is the perfect environment for SiliconCore displays; the vibrancy of the screens brings the sporting event to life in a very captivating way. The new screens also matched the aspect ratio of their existing setup exactly, so absolutely no reconstruction had to be done other than simply adjusting the picture frame on the outside of the wall, saving the casino significant costs and alleviating extended downtime and customer aggravation. Our Common Cathode technology has widened the parameters of LED use to include these close proximity applications.”
