ABOUT THE INSTALL
In 1982, Buffalo Wild Wings was founded after the owners failed to find any restaurant serving Buffalo-style chicken wings to eat, so they decided to open their own. The company began to franchise in 1992 and by October 1999, the 100th location opened. Starting in 2016, the new restaurants being built follow a new type of layout that gives the guests the feeling as if they were actually in a sports stadium. In December 2018, the brand unveiled a new restaurant design featuring a more prominent bar area, flexible seating areas, VIP spaces and large arena-like video screens with anti-glare technology.
The task was to provide a fully controllable audio and video system supporting the distribution of 12x DirectTV boxes, a single Cablevision box and a Sony Blu-ray player to over 50 commercial displays and projectors, throughout the venue, including three audio zones and restaurant bathrooms.
Buffalo Wild Wings needed a system that was reliable but easy to implement, and one that would give them the sophisticated output switching required. WyreStorm’s NetworkHD system offered everything they were looking for, particularly for a first installation
