SYLMAR, CA, April 29, 2010 — When Just George’s, the sports bar connected to the Captain George’s Seafood Restaurant in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, needed a way to let each booth control its own A/V content, they turned to Virginia Beach-based Fidelity Sound Reinforcement. Fidelity selected innovative solutions from Xantech Corporation, a leading producer of innovative, reliable and problem-solving custom installation signal processing and control systems.

Mike Phillips, Project Manager and Audio Engineer at Fidelity, which did the system design and integration at the sports bar, chose the Xantech LM110RP Smartpad3 Single Gang

Keypad Controller to enable the system to allow patrons at each booth in the lounge to control their own A/V content. In addition, the Xantech CSPLCD64 Commercial Touchscreen Display was also integrated into the system.

Fidelity Sound Reinforcement installed a dozen LM110 push-button controllers in the lounge, one at every booth. The LM110 offers those seated in the booth the ability to call up any channel from DirecTV, including the channel guides and pre-selected sports channels, as well as control over the volume of their display. Additionally, staff can also customize the experience by choosing which sports events are on any of the ten 52-inch LCD displays placed throughout the lounge, which are controlled using Xantech’s standalone CSPLCD64 Commercial Touchscreen Display.

This level of individual customization of the lounge patron’s experience is unheard of and only possible thanks to the reliability and high degree of programmability of the Xantech controllers, which replaces products from another manufacturer that Phillips says had a history of crashing the system. “Now it’s a place where if somebody wants to see any sporting event -- football, baseball, hockey, NCAA -- they’ve pretty much got it,� says Phillips. “The LM110s are standalone units; there’s not a single processor that drives all those booths. We love that type of individual control. And we have cable as a back-up and that is controlled with the touch panel also.�

Phillips was pleased with how easily the Xantech equipment was programmed and how well it’s performing. “The Xantech installation was pretty simple and trouble-free,� he says. “Everything that controls the video in that restaurant is Xantech, and the customers and employees have been really pleased with it.�
