The recent opening of the brand-new Aliante Station Casino and Hotel in North Las Vegas marked the continued growth of Kelley Technologies as one of the leading A/V installers for casinos in southern Nevada. Kelley Technologies handled the design and installation of the entire audio/video system at Aliante Station, implementing JBL ControlÂ® Contractor Series loudspeakers throughout the venue.
Located in the expanding North Las Vegas area, Aliante Station is the latest casino to open under Station Casinosâ€™ ownership, joining other well-known casinos such as Green Valley Ranch, Red Rock Resort and Wild Wild West. Aliante Station features a gaming area, with 2,000 slot and video poker games, more than 40 table games, a poker room, a high-limit room, and a state-of-the-art Race & Sports Book. The hotel boasts 200 hotel rooms, while the property also contains six restaurants.
Kelley Technologies has a longstanding relationship with Station Casinos, having installed systems in several of the companyâ€™s locations, and the A/V system at Aliante Station showcases the continuation of a successful formula. As with most of Stationâ€™s casino properties, the race & sports Book area at Aliante Station serves as the head end for distribution of the A/V system.
In keeping with the philosophy of most casinos, the audio system needed to be conducive to creating a comfortable environment where customers would enjoy the gaming experience. â€œThe goal at Aliante Station was to provide crystal-clear, atmospheric sound while simultaneously making sure the audio equipment maintained a low profile,â€? said H Waldman, project manager for Kelley Technologies.
To create this balance of adequate sound and discreet appearance, Kelley Technologies found the JBL Control Contractor Series to be an ideal solution. And while the audio components are largely out of plain view, Aliante Station is nonetheless a showcase for the versatility and quality of the Control Contractor Series loudspeakers, which are dispersed throughout the casino and hotel. In all, the system features a total of 754 Control 227CT medium-format, in-ceiling loudspeakers, 983 Control 25T surface-mount loudspeakers, and 232 Control 28T-60 surface mount loudspeakers. Crown CTs amplifiers power the system, which also includes processing from BSS Audio BLU 32 and BLU 80 components.
Since the opening of the Aliante Station, the system has performed to expectations. â€œThe JBL Control speakers were easy to install and provided the smooth, even coverage that is so important in casino projects,â€? Waldman added. â€œAdditionally, the variety of options JBL provides allowed us to use different loudspeaker models for different areas while maintaining a level of consistency throughout the property.â€?
