Canadian AV products and solutions specialist Advanced has deployed a five-by-five screen digital signage video wall at the new flagship Toronto location of the Jack Astor's Bar and Grill chain.

"We have a longstanding history with the Jack Astor's chain, so they knew that we would be able take their concepts and turn them into realities," said Advanced President Mark Mulford. "The management team at Jack Astor's wanted the biggest video display possible, so our team of experts created a massive video wall that completely distinguishes this location from any other restaurant around. Nothing else even comes close."

Advanced provided the restaurant with a five-by-five NEC Display Solutions video wall that is visible from five-by-five video wallliterally anywhere in the restaurant, making an impact on patrons as soon as they walk through the door. The video wall allows customers on both the floor and mezzanine levels of the restaurant to enjoy satellite programming while they dine. Advanced also implemented several strategically placed "video wall trees" throughout the restaurant. These "trees" consist of a metal pipe that goes from the ceiling down to the floor, with each holding two plasma screens, making it so that everybody in the restaurant is able to see a screen at all times.

"Advanced has implemented AV solutions in close to 15 other Jack Astor's locations, so they knew that we were capable of coming up with a plan that would make their new location completely stand apart from anything done before," said Advanced Vice President of Sales Mark McPherson. "We not only installed our biggest restaurant video wall ever, but we equipped the restaurant with more than 70 LCD displays, designed and constructed the video wall trees, and integrated a full audio solution. Everyone at Jack Astor's, from the management to the customers, is loving the new setup."

In fact, according to the announcement from Advanced, the management team at Jack Astor's is so happy with their new AV system that they are planning to have Advanced revisit previous Jack Astor's locations they've worked on and update those systems with the same technology used in the St. Lawrence restaurant. Advanced is also currently working on integrating a similar AV solution in a Kingston-based Jack Astor's restaurant.
