KRAMER ELECTRONICS AND SIERRA VIDEO PRODUCTS KEEP BOWLING ENTERTAINMENT CENTER ROLLING
Visitors to a new entertainment center in the southwest are getting more than just a night at the bowling alley. They are enjoying heart−thumping music, stunning big−screen video and a captivating multi−media extravaganza that takes bowling to the next level.
The high−tech environment was created by DIGITAL Commercial Systems, an audio/video design and installation company, using Kramer Electronics and Sierra Video products for the switching technology. “Kramer and Sierra Video provided a perfect balance of both price and performance,” said Jeff Beall, owner of DIGITAL Commercial Systems. “They are recognized as a reliable product and their switching technology and twisted pair product easily met our needs.”
Each of the bowling lanes has projected high definition images. Many other displays throughout the large facility showcase video ranging from fast−moving music videos to static art images. A Sierra Video Pro XL RGBHV 32 x16 routing switcher manages 17 different video sources, which can be viewed on any of the displays. Several Kramer TP−121 twisted pair transmitters and TP−122 twisted pair receivers work together to convert computer graphics video and unbalanced stereo audio signals into a twisted pair signal for long distance distribution. Some Kramer VP−704xl video scan converters are also used in the system to down−convert computer graphic signals for display on the video monitors. The entire behind−the−scenes system was carefully designed to surround guests with the highest level multi−media quality possible.
Visitors can count on great entertainment enhanced by the latest digital image technology from Kramer Electronics and Sierra Video products.
