DFX completed its work at High Rollers Bowling Center in September 2010. The project features a full 20-lane video MASQ system as well as sixteen 50", eight 42", and two 60" televisions. Everything in-house works through a 4 TPS, 6 LB touch panel, so the entire bowling center, including projectors, sound system, and volume control, is commanded from a central location. DFX programmed and processed all of the controls into the user-friendly touch panel, so that the center managers could operate it with ease.
The entire installed system is fully automated through Crestron control, the leading provider of home, building, and campus control systems, with innovations in touch panel and touch screen remote control technologies. A Crestron system allows control over theater systems, video, media servers, lighting, climate, and audio, including amplifiers and speakers. Crestron also partners with Microsoft, Apple, Texas Instruments and other industry leaders, developing control solutions that work with familiar devices, such as the iPad and iPhone.
Controlling everything from one central location increases efficiency at the same time it reduces redundancy and confusion. It's an excellent way to manage any system, whether it's used personally at home or for professional entertainment.
