Buffalo Wild Wings Enhances Game Day Atmosphere with Casio’s LampFree Projectors

Buffalo Wild Wings, a popular sports bar/restaurant franchise based in the United States, wanted to visually enhance and transform its customers’ overall casual dining experience. To do so, Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee (AMPAL Restaurant Group) sought out DFX – a company specializing in audio, visual, lighting and automation solutions across a number of verticals – to help find high-quality, low maintenance projectors for daily sports viewing. With the help of DFX located in West Berlin, AMPAL  installed 15 of Casio’s projectors across three AMPAL Buffalo Wild Wing  locations in New Jersey.

 

DFX recommended Casio’s portfolio of projectors because they are LampFree and run on Casio’s state-of-the-art LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source. This means users do not have to replace lamps every 2-3 months, which typically cost almost as much as the original projector cost over one year. With the projectors having an estimated lifespan of 20,000 hours, Buffalo Wild Wings can now provide on-going sports coverage, since the projectors usually run more than 10 hours a day.

 

“Without the use of mercury lamps, Buffalo Wild Wings no longer has to worry about downtime from lamp failures  or the costly maintenance associated with bulbs,” said Gennaro Esposito, vice president of DFX. “As an industry veteran with more than 20 years of experience, I have found Casio’s projectors to be the ideal solution for establishments like Buffalo Wild Wings.”

 

By using Casio’s LampFree projection technology, Buffalo Wild Wings has eliminated thetime and cost associated with lamp replacement as well as dark screens during critical events.

 

“The total cost of ownership, ability to withstand extended daily use and retain brightness were the major components in choosing projection technology,” said Robert Corde, director of operations for AMPAL Restaurant Group, Buffalo Wild Wings. “Casio’s Dual Projection System and Pro Series XJ-H2600 go above and beyond our expectations and have made a significant technological difference in our restaurant locations by cutting down costs and maintenance, and ultimately brightening the atmosphere. Our customers now have the opportunity to watch crisp, vivid imagery unmatched by competitors.”

 

Three Buffalo Wild Wings locations in New Jersey are currently equipped with Casio’s Dual Projection Systems and Pro XJ H2600 projectors; four (4) in Monmouth Mall, five (5) in Rockaway and six (6) in Watchung, NJ.

 

The Dual Projection  System, designed with two Casio projectors stacked on top of one another, projects two sharp, high-quality images, which the Convex System control box then merges into one screen. It is available in two different models; the XJ-SK650 and the XJ-SK600. The XJ-SK650 features double stacked Pro Series XJ-H2600 projectors and provides users with up to 6,500 lumens, while the XJ-SK600 features double stacked Signature Series XJ-M250 projectors and provides up to 6,000 lumens. Both of these models provide roughly twice the lumen output provided by a single projector.

 

The Dual Projection System includes two (2) projectors, ceiling mount housing and the Convex System control box, which corrects and merges screen images. The system features high-precision correction and an interface that allows easy modifications using a remote control.

 

“Casio is proud to be Buffalo Wild Wing’s premier projector provider,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We know our Lamp Free projectors will reduce operating costs over the life of the installation and create a space that is both inviting and dynamic. We look forward to our continued relationship with Buffalo Wild Wings.”
