ABOUT THE INSTALL
The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is a world-class destination in downtown Las Vegas that presents an exciting and authentic view of the impact of organized crime on Las Vegas history and its unique imprint on America and the world. Completed in 1933 and listed on the Nevada and National Registers of Historic Places in what many consider the ultimate artifact – a former federal courthouse and United States Post Office in which many of the Kefauver Committee hearings on organized crime were held and where Museum visionary and former Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar B. Goodman, defended many mobsters as organized crime’s go-to defense attorney.
Throughout the museum, true stories of Mob history are brought to life in a bold and contemporary style via engaging exhibits and multi-sensory experiences that put the visitor in the middle of the action through immersive theatre presentations, iconic one-of-a-kind artifacts and interactive, themed environments. It is with this in mind that the client asked for a flexible and reliable multifunctional audiovisual and IT distribution in two areas in particular on different floors, that were able to seamlessly incorporate the various devices and technologies required for the different uses of the room.
The client already had two motorized projector screens on either side of the room serving two newly installed 7K projectors, with the existing projectors repositioned and re-purposed to another centre screen. However, the client needed a reliable video switching system capable of distributing HDMI content from various local and remote sources and chose a combination of a local WyreStorm HDMI matrices with each HDMI output connecting to one of the local projectors and two HDMI inputs for local device connection.
