Xantech Control Solutions Are a Sure Bet for Albany OTB Clubhouse Race Book

— Keeping tabs on 249 separate flat-panel displays for ardent horse-race wagerers is a snap, thanks to Xantech WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controller and Xantech CSPLCD64GW and CWTC10 wired and wireless touchpanels —

CARLSBAD, CA, March 13, 2012 — Albany, New York residents don’t have to go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City for off-track betting action in comfortable surroundings and lots of options. Instead, they can stay right on Central Avenue in the state capitol at the new OTB Clubhouse Race Book, where they can watch live horse racing and other sports on 249 flat-screen panels throughout the OTB super-parlor, a one-of-a-kind flagship facility featuring fine dining and a theater-sized screen, among other amenities. Behind the scenes, keeping the Racing Center running smoothly are technology solutions from Xantech, a leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution. The entire AV system, consisting of 249 Sharp 60-inch LCD displays and Sony 55- and 46-inch flat-panel displays, as well as the sound system, is controlled via six Xantech WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controllers and five Xantech CSPLCD64GW 6.4″ Commercial Touchscreen Displays and CWTC10 10.4” Wireless Touch Controllers. The Xantech units and other AV systems components were installed and integrated by Com Tech, Inc.

Chuck Zarriello, President of Com Tech, says the project had tight deadlines and required a control system that was reliable, cost-effective and flexible enough to integrate both the latest flat-screen displays and 20 older models that were taken from the previous OTB location that the new Tele-Plex Racing Center was replacing. “The WIC1200 is a fantastic controller – powerful and intuitive and easy to use,” says Zarriello, “but just as important is that it’s very cost-effective – we could not have gotten this level of control from other manufacturers at this price.” Zariello says that the cost-effectiveness of the Xantech products creates more than cost savings – it creates confidence. For instance, he says, the wireless touchpanels act as a backup for the wired panels, which control global on/off and channel select for any combination of all of the displays. “That creates a fully redundant system that’s incredibly reliable and at an affordable cost,” he explains. “And the WIC1200s are the glue that holds the entire system together.”

Xantech’s Web Intelligent Controller WIC1200 is a stand-alone room controller for Networked/Web-based control featuring 2 IR Ports, 2 Serial Ports, 2 Contact Closure ports, and 2 Digital I/O ports as well as 2 Ethernet ports (one with POE) for TCP/IP telnet control with less intrusion into facility IP networks. On its own, the Web Intelligent Controller is an Event-driven component with two RS232 ports (configurable for RS422 and RS232) and a single IP port. The Event Manager is capable of Timed Events, Calendar Events, Telnet and Serial Events as well a full FTP site, Web Server and Email Server. The Xantech SPLCD64GW 6.4″ Smartpad LCD graphic touchpanels and CWTC10 10.4” WiFi touch-panel controllers give users the convenience and simplicity of a touchpanel controller in a self-contained unit that is easy to install, easy to program, and, perhaps best of all, easy to afford. Its 640 x 480 resolution with 64K color provides outstanding graphics and clarity.
