AV Consultant • Production Technology Consultants Group

When it comes to casinos, bigger is usually better, even if the casino is located in a northeast suburb of Philadelphia, far from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. When Greenwood Racing, which owns the Philadelphia Park Racetrack, got approval to build what is now the 260,000-square-foot Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pa., it contracted with Production Technology Consultants Group (PTC Group) to design all the AV and production lighting systems and to supervise its own engineering staff during installation. From the massive 50- and 60-foot-wide digiLED displays out front, to the various 108-inch Sharp LCDs throughout the interior, to a pair of High End Systems DL.3 digital lights with built-in media servers and four-chip light engines, PTC Group created a massive video routing system to send any source to any display in the casino. A 64x96 Magenta Research router plays traffic cop, controlled by various Crestron interfaces spread throughout the casino for easy access. And all the equipment rooms are linked by a fiber-optic ring and Cisco switches to ensure audio and video content can span long distances, if necessary, at high speed and low latency.

The casino’s Club 360, which uses the DL.3s for video effects, is home to live bands and hip DJs. It’s dripping with JBL Vertec and VRX line arrays, as well as Control 328CT ceiling and Eon portable PA speakers. A group of 18 Crown Macro-Tech amplifiers and 10 BSS Soundweb London BLU processors handle the audio, and a Soundcraft Si2 console does the mixing. Beyond the club are more than 140 audio zones, connected via CobraNet and BSS BLU-Link. And the design team has just begun. After this $7.8 million first phase, PTC Group is working with the client on a massive expansion with more gaming space, restaurants, a hotel, and a 2,400-seat showroom, all integrated into the existing AV control system.
