Tannoy Technology Puts You In The Game At Legends Lounge

With a name for providing innovative premium audio solutions for a variety of diverse and challenging applications, Tannoy technology is putting patrons in the game at Windsor Casino‘s Legends Lounge.

Legends sports bar and betting lounge is grand slam hit, offering hundreds of channels, a full a la carte menu, full bar, and capacity for approx. 179 people. And Tannoy loudspeaker systems are an integral part of that success.

To service Legends ‘videocentric‘ design and multiple viewing areas – 36 Mitsubishi LCD screens and 4 large HD rear projection screens with Christie Digital DW30 projectors – Engineering Harmonics, Andrew Kozak trusted Tannoy loudspeakers to bring clarity and punch to the audio system.

The primary challenge says Kozak, lead designer on the install, was to strike a fine balance between intelligibility and dynamics – providing sound rivaling what patrons would hear live, at the game, without diminishing the bustling vibe that brought them to lounge in the first place.

For Kozak the choice was clear. Tannoy has won out over other technologies in a variety of installations, from business communication systems, to the refit of Windsor Casino‘s premium rotunda space. “We were asked to provide a sophisticated atmosphere, typical of a sports lounge, but to up the bar substantially.”

Inviting patrons in by way of open access to the main gaming floor, makes Legends an exciting, but potentially sonically volatile venue. To meet the physical and esthetic challenges of giving the space its own identity apart from the main casino floor, Kozak and his install team made careful choices in both their choice of speaker and placement.

One of two main viewing areas, Legends rear Media Wall offers up a 120” rear projection screen and four 46” LCD‘s. It features Tannoy V-12HP‘s which incorporate the company‘s world renowned Dual Concentric drive unit and are ideal for providing high definition sound with low distortion, and powerful, compact Tannoy VS15HL woofers for tight, punchy low end. In Legends high traffic areas dual Tannoy CMS8-TDC-8 ceiling monitors fill out the general program sound. But the key to bringing the action as close to Legends‘ participants as possible, while maintaining its signature upscale look and feel, are Tannoy’s Arena Satellite surround speakers.

Prized by designers for their streamlined elegance and frequency response, they are truly the workhorse of the space, and fill a host of roles to enhance the Legends Sports experience. Positioned prominently throughout the lounge: as rear left and right audio channels for the Media Wall, and above each individual booth and wall mounted monitor, they are instrumental in bringing the excitement of the game up close.

They‘re also a key element in the sports den‘s impressive centerpiece – a giant Sports Score Ticker with eight LCD‘s, three 104” wide rear projection screens, and four-sided, three colour active ticker. Mounted underneath the Ticker, the Tannoy Arena‘s exclusive, point source Dual Concentric driver technology provide spatial effects and seriously enhance patron‘s sense of ‘being there‘.

In addition to bringing big dynamic sound to the table, Tannoy brings enhanced security as well, with dedicated mounting hardware and accessories. Unlike third party hardware, Tannoy’s guaranteed weight ratings and versatile systems ensure rock-solid mounting and precise adjustment for any application or venue. All with an elegant and unobtrusive touch that enhances the space, and the experience.

The Super Bowl and other Big Ticket events are bringing thousands of sports fans and gamblers alike, from both sides of the border, to Windsor Casino. So even when your team is playing hundreds of miles away, Tannoy technology and expertise will help make you feel like you‘re right in the thick of it.
