High Velocity Sports Bar goes high-tech with a Christie solution
They say everything is bigger in Texas, and the J.W. Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is no exception. Nestled on 600 acres of rolling country hills, and boasting over 1000 rooms, two PGA Tour golf courses, a six-acre water park and seven restaurant and bar options, the resort is the Marriott chain’s largest and grandest offering yet. In keeping with the grandiose theme, the facility’s High Velocity Sports Bar needed multi-media equipment that would impress. That’s why the facility turned to Christie for a spectacular projection solution to match the ambiance of the venue.
“The Sports Bar was looking for a projection solution that would offer the highest resolution for the lowest start up cost,” said Joey D’Angelo, principal consultant with Charles M. Salter and Associates. Charged with finding just the right equipment to fit the space and design, D’Angelo set about looking at his options. “Budget was the biggest challenge – other technologies were quite expensive up front, so this solution worked for the client. We used 6 Christie HD10K-M projectors to give the client the option to route up to 24 different HD channels to any display in the bar,” he said. Once installation partners Ford AV installed the systems, the results were amazing.
“We’re very happy with the quality and performance of the Christie projectors. The impact on our sport bar has been excellent.”
